Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander and first ballot inductee into The Hall of Jeffs, Jeff Karstens, brought his game face to last night’s game against Magic Johnson’s shiny new toy at Chavez Ravine last night. Unfortunately, he left his game arm at home. Mayor McDerp pitched five innings, walking one and fanning three, while surrendering three earned runs on seven hits in the Pirates’ 3-2 loss. Matt Kemp continued to be frighteningly good at baseball, James Loney’s quest to smash Bill Bergen’s consecutive hitless at-bats streak was thwarted by a seeing eye single in the 5-6 hole, and Javy Guerra is on pace to save 147 games this season.
But far more important than any of that big ol’ pile of horesefeathers is that…
Jeff Karstens still has a face.
This is the eleventh installment in our ongoing tribute to him. And his face.
