Game-faced, he ignored them. Didn’t even touch the bill of his cap, give half a wave or make with a slight smile. Nothing to indicate mutual regard or a back-at-ya “Thank you.” Come on, kid.
Last week? Same douchey thing. Phil Mushnick sums up, "Were we again not supposed notice that Steven Matz doesn’t appreciate appreciation? Matz, receiving a standing ovation after leaving with a one-hitter with one out in the eighth, just ignored it. He entered the dugout not even bothering to touch the brim of his cap. SNY’s Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez must’ve missed this. Again. Even dour Colin Montgomerie acknowledged applause."
What an asshole.
