Bruins ‘Torey Krug shows his support for Dodgers’ Joe Kelly with a simple Tweet | Boston Bruins

Torey Krug is clearly the #FreeJoeKelly team.

Major League Baseball suspended Kelly for eight games Wednesday for instigating a bank cleaning incident during the game last night between the Houston Astros and the Los Angeles Dodgers. The league’s decision has proven divisive, with some believing the punishment fit the crime (Kelly threw close to Alex Bregman’s head), while others believe an eight-game suspension is too steep given that zero players of the Astros were suspended for their roles in signing the team. stealing controversy.

Krug, who met Kelly during the pitcher’s days with the Boston Red Sox, released his feelings on Wednesday night.

Check out this tweet from the Bruins defender:

Hey, weirder things have happened.

Krug and the Bruins will face the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night in their first and only exhibition game. Boston will resume its season on Sunday afternoon with a round robin game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
