The 6-foot-4 left-hander, whose once-blistering fastball has been reduced to 90 mph slop, was mocked with chants of “Keeer-shaaww, Keer-shaaww” as he tried to navigate out of jams in the first and third frames.
…“Brutal. Pretty brutal,” Honeycutt said. “What I don’t understand is why baseball allows it. You’ve got the rubber right there and people literally standing over you.”
That is an amazing quote that embodies how overmatched the Dodgers appeared to be Tuesday. Honeycutt has been around Major League Baseball for four decades, and he’s whining about the crowd being too close to his pitchers in the bullpen? Talk about a loser’s lament.
What, did he expect opposing fans to gush all over themselves ad give out participation trophies to his pitchers?
