The Dodgers took a friendly shot at the Rays on Twitter.

Game 6 of the 2020 World Series will go down in history for a number of reasons. The Los Angeles Dodgers clinched the Fall Classic to break their 32-year title drought and the Tampa Bay Rays doomed themselves by removing pitcher Blake Snell way too early (well, that’s what many people will tell you, but let’s not get into that).

There’s no doubt this still hurts for Rays fans, but Dodgers fans simply cannot celebrating. That’s why they’re reminding everyone about “more rings” after Corey Seager got married and Brusdar Graterol got engaged.

And on Wednesday, the official Dodgers Twitter account decided to show off on Wallpaper Wednesday (we didn’t know that was a thing?) and post some pictures from the game, the most iconic of which featured Mookie Betts sliding across home plate to give LA the lead.

We gotta say, those are some darn good aerial shots. They’re certainly reason to celebrate this day we didn’t know warranted attention on social media.

That prompted the Rays to respond with a funny graphic, and the Dodgers followed suit with a playful troll.

Can’t set yourself up for something like that, Rays!

Our best guess? The Rays’ current wallpaper is Blake Snell expressing disgust on the mound when Kevin Cash made the move to take him out of the game in the sixth inning, because that pretty much sums up their playoff endeavors after going up 3-0 on the Houston Astros in the ALCS. Nothing was really good for them after that. And they’re all still angry about it.

Yeah, go ahead and change that, guys. Maybe not to those aerial shots, but perhaps Brett Phillips airplane-ing his way throughout the Globe Life Field outfield? That’s a fun little moment that had Dodgers fans supremely worried for, like 23 hours.

The Dodgers were just trying to help since these are probably the most memorable from the World Series. It just so happens the best ones feature the Dodgers’ triumph. Whoops.
