Jeff Karstens, the godfather of DERP and a reliable starting pitcher for the first place (!) Pittsburgh Pirates pitched his
face ass off last night in a 2-0 win over the Oklahoma City Redhawks Houston Astros. Mayor McDERP threw eight scoreless innings, giving up four hits, while walking one and striking out eight. He also brought his game face to the dish last night, as he sprayed his first base hit of the season into right field and and scored on a sacrifice fly by Garrett Jones. But more important than being in first place and wins and losses and scoreless innings and first hits of the year and important runs scored, was the incredible display of DERP at PNC Park last night. 70-to-80 grade DERP. Flashes of Elite DERP. A reminder that this man, this visage, is a generational talent in the prime of his career.
WE ARE ALL WITNESSES.
Jeff Karstens has a face, you guys, and it might just be in the best shape of its life.
This is the fifteenth installment in our ongoing tribute to him. And his face.
