Leagues and teams auctioning off game-worn jerseys from important contests is nothing new, although this latest example is absolutely hilarious… or painful, depending on whose colors you wear.
MLB is going to auction off Baltimore Orioles closer Zach Britton’s game-worn uniform from the AL Wild Card Game against the Blue Jays, which is amazing, considering the controversy surrounding the lack of Britton in that game.
Britton went 47-for-47 in save opportunities this season with a 0.54 ERA, making him a Cy Young contender, yet for some inexplicable reason, he was not used by Buck Showalter late in the Wild Card game with the O’s and Jays tied.
So his “game-used” uniform is now up for auction, which means that some Jays fan is going to buy it for a very high price, yet it will all be worth it because a Jays fan will own one of the most infamous uniforms in recent playoff history, and will have that to troll Orioles fans for an eternity.
Who knew the league was so insistent on trolling Peter Angelos?
