Astros outfielder Jose Siri appeared to double down on a flamboyant home run celebration, a day after he had initially apologized over the incident.
Siri admitted after Tuesday night's game against the Mets that he "made an error" when he stood at home plate to admire an eighth-inning blast off New York reliever Adonis Medina.
But Siri seemed less contrite prior to Wednesday's matinee, declaring in a since-deleted tweet "f--- bad opinions. have fun"
Siri's stunt during the home run had seemed to anger the Mets, not to mention his own manager, Dusty Baker, who said after the game that he wished Siri had run instead of lingering in the batter's box.
"He should have ran," Baker said. "Back in our day, the next guy would have gotten drilled."
New York third baseman Eduardo Escobar had appeared to give Siri an earful when he was rounding third base after the solo shot.
Escobar later seemed to debrief with Houston catcher Martin Maldonado during a ninth-inning at-bat.
Mets manager Buck Showalter said some Mets players were annoyed.
"There are certain things that you do talk about -- right and wrong -- but you don't want to impose the way you were brought up in the game [on them]," Showalter said. "[Like] 'Hey, guys, you're supposed to be mad at that.'"
