The Dark Knight returned, let’s take a look at his numbers so far this season…..
Uh oh, SAFE. And the first batter is on base.
Now you guys pay attention to these posts right? I mean the Angels didn’t and the Royals didn’t. You know what’s coming, right?
He cannot pitch with runners on base.
TDK looks tired and frustrated.
And the inning is not over…
And we have our featured image, and likely the definitive image of the Royals era.
Matt retires the side. Royals trail 3-0 after 1.
But Matty Baseball will not be dismayed and he is excited to take the mound and hustles out there!
Uh oh the first runner gets on base.
NOW ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION? YOU TELL ME WHAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN.
Note the batter Perez is batting .140 and……
Which brings a visit from an old guy wearing a bandana.
And a hit and a walk and…
…and that’s it. Matt gets 4 outs and….
IS THIS THE END?
His line: 1.1 IP, 6 hits, 5 runs all earned, a walk, zero Ks, and three HRs.
NOTHING redeeming tonight. Not even a “he looked ok in the first.”
This may have been the end of his career.
I wonder if he has found a Burrito Shop in Kansas City, and I hope he has the power to resist the temptation of flour and cheese. Stay strong Matt.
The Next Seaver everyone.
