How did Walker Buehler fit into those super tight pants?!!?
Seriously — the Dodgers pitcher’s pants were so tight during Monday’s playoff game against the Braves, it was trending on social media!!
Was it a fashion statement? Did someone misplace your usual pants? Was it uncomfortable? Growth spurt? SO MANY QUESTIONS!!
The problem … the Dodgers ended up losing the game 5 to 1 and Walker was in a pretty bad mood afterward.
So, when a reporter asked Walker for a tight-pants explanation — the pitcher shut the guy down and ended his press conference!
“Not the time or place Michael,” 26-year-old Walker said while shaking his head condescendingly.
Sure, tough question to answer after a heartbreaking loss — but those pants were skinny as hell!!
In fact, reporters were so desperate for answers — they even asked Braves starting pitcher Max Fried if he had any insight!
As for his performance, Buehler pitched his face off despite some almost-certain circulation issues … striking out 7 and allowing just 3 hits in the loss.
