    Fans are focused on fireworks when the Toronto Blue Jays face the Rangers in the divisional round of the playoffs, but Odor is focused on winning. (Published Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2016)

    It was the punch seen around the world.

    Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor clocked Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista in the jaw and set off a bench clearing brawl that will forever be in the minds of Rangers and Blue Jays fans everywhere. 

    That was May 15 and at the time we thought that would be the last time these two teams would face each other. 

    Fast forward to October for postseason play and the baseball Gods have granted us another match-up between these two high powered teams. 

    But let's be honest Odor-Bautista Part II is what fans really want to see. 

    Odor, who hit 33 home runs this season, says he hasn't heard from "Joey Bats" since the punch and said it will be business as usual if Bautista ended up on second base at any time during the series. 

    Odor was questioned over and over about the punch, he says he's moved on and is focused on winning.
