Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez mimics Carlos Correa’s watch gesture, drawing rebuke from Boston manager Alex Cora

The new- and old-school ways of baseball etiquette clashed during the Boston Red Sox’s 12-3 victory over the Houston Astros in Game 3 of the ALCS on Monday night when Carlos Correa grounded out to second baseman Christian Arroyo to end the sixth inning.

As Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez walked off the mound, he pointed to his wrist, a reference to Correa’s celebration in Game 1 after the shortstop hit a home run off reliever Hansel Robles. The celebration drew an immediate reaction from Boston manager Alex Cora, who screamed, “Hey, no!”

Upon Rodriguez’s return to the dugout, Cora hugged the pitcher and pulled him in for a conversation.

“Don’t do that,” Cora told Rodriguez.

Cora said he did not want Rodriguez to show up Correa for getting out, and that the pitcher needed to maintain humility while finding success.

Rodriguez apologized for it, and Correa reportedly welcomed it, so this isn't going to be made into a big thing. Right? Right? Like, if a pitch gets away from Greinke tonight we're not going to have an endless cycle of IT WAS RETALIATION NO IT WASN'T OH NOES HERE WE GO AGAIN. Right, FOX? Right, ESPN?

Hey, down here in Houston, it's us against the world. They hate us. Just ask the local paper.

Exactly. This is fine. It's fine. Even if he hadn't apologized, I'd imagine COrrea would be fine with it. I'm taunting you, you're taunting me, let's have some fun.

Thankfully, the "story" might now be focused on Cora chastising Rodriguez and Correa's benevolent quotes afterwards instead.

Nothing will happen. LaRussa's not involved.

Good for Cora. This seems like a non-story.

After Leo Durocher stole Babe Ruth’s watch, people in the game razzed him for decades by yelling “Hey, Leo, what time is it?”. Correa-Rodriguez probably has a much shorter shelf life.

The two least likeable teams playing against each other. I check the score the next day, that's about it. Go National League!

Oh god, another unwritten rule to add to the unwritten list.

Screw half of the National League matchup this year too; I will not watch any game where Atlanta is a participant. I guess I can live with the Dodgers, but between two cheaters and one tomahawk-chopper, I am really turned off in general.

Gotta run, there are some kids on my lawn.

Gee, if the Braves make the World Series, will they move that to Denver, too...?
