I’ve watched this clip a couple of times and it seems like Strider is joking, but he also gives off toolbag vibes, so you tell me:

All I know is that we need Phillies/Braves in the NLDS again. 45k at Citizens Bank Park absolutely hounding this doofus while he gives up five runs in 2.1 innings. OF COURSE, we are not overlooking the Wild Card opponent. Looks like the Diamondbacks. The Phils will handle business against the snakes and then it’s Atlanta on deck. I bet Strider is already nervously stroking his Mumford and Sons mustache. He’s listening to the Lumineers on vinyl while drinking a West Coast IPA. “Ho! Hey! I’m getting blown up at CBP today.”
