Imagine tweeting this after going 0-2 in the NLCS:

Do nothing on the group project and still get an A type behavior.

I’m sure he picked up his game in the World Series though, right? Right?

Nope! He went 0-2 again. “But Kyle he pitched six no hit innings last night at Chase Field!” He did. And no one will ever remember it. They’ll remember the three straight hits he gave up to score the winning run and lose the game. Ain’t that a bitch? If Chase Field wasn’t designed like the Polo Grounds, Zac Gallen would be a lifeguard in Wildwood.

In the last two rounds he went 0-4, with 13 ER, gave up 5 HRs, and had an ERA of 5.24. That’s bad. Almost as bad as trying to weasel your way to the Phillies parade in 2008 even though you grew up a Cardinals fan:

Things came to a head in 2008, when the Phillies won the World Series over the Tampa Bay Rays. Zac, a Bishop Eustace alum who was 13 at the time, wanted to skip school and go to the parade on Broad Street. Stacey had other ideas.

“He was like, ‘I’m going to take off school and go to to the Phillies parade,’” Stacey said. “And I told him, ‘No, you’re not.’ And he was like, ‘What?’ And I was like, ‘You’re not a Phillies fan. You don’t get to take off school to go to a party.’

“All of his friends were going, so he figured he was going. You can’t have it both ways.”

And lets not forget Alek Thomas planting the DBacks flag at CBP:

How’d that work out? Going 5/21 in the World Series with a .238/.238/.286 line and a centerfield Buckner to end any chance your team had of making a comeback:


(yes this is all sour grapes)
