Brewers epically troll viral Joc-Pham fantasy football beef originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Joc Pederson’s reputation as a fantasy football manager continues to spread.

During Pederson’s plate appearance in the fourth inning of Thursday’s doubleheader between the Giants and Milwaukee Brewers, the jumbotron at American Family Field flashed a piece of player trivia that gave a wink to Pederson’s viral fantasy football beef with Tommy Pham earlier this summer.

“Very familiar with the bench/IR rules in fantasy football,” the scoreboard read.

The drama began when Pham mysteriously slapped Pederson before a game between the Giants and Cincinnati Reds in May. Pham was removed from the lineup that afternoon and was later handed a three-game suspension.

After the game, Pederson revealed that the issue between the two players stemmed from a fantasy football league. Pham wasn’t happy.

“We were in a fantasy league together,” Pederson told reporters after the game. “I put a player on injured reserve when they were listed as ‘out’ and added another player. And then there was as text message in the group saying that I was cheating because I was stashing players on my bench.”

You can bet Pederson has his lineup ready to roll.
