Marcus Stroman was not happy with a Barstool Sports host for his take on the Edwin Diaz injury at the World Baseball Classic on Thursday. Not one bit.
Kevin Clancy, better known as KFC Barstool, had a puzzling take to say the least when he learned that Diaz had gone down with a potentially serious injury while celebrating with his Puerto Rico teammates following their win over the Dominican Republic.
“I literally hope every single one of these WBC losers has a player on their MLB team get injured tmrw,” tweeted Clancy early on Thursday. “I hope there’s 29 injured stars and you all have to defend your stupid worthless fake takes about a tournament that’s fun for 5 seconds before it’s completely forgotten. Asinine.”
In a game where the New York Mets closer propelled his country into the WBC quarterfinals, Diaz needed a wheelchair to exit Wednesday night, and Mets general manager Billy Eppler announced on Thursday that he suffered a torn patellar tendon and he gave a rough timeline of eight months for the injury.
