Kansas City Royals outfielder Jonny Gomes had no issue saying “we whupped their ass” even though he wasn’t on the World Series roster.

Typically, the biggest trash talkers and smack runners come from athletes on the field. They get so locked into the competition that verbal assaults on the opponent simply cannot be held back.
It’s understandable at times.
What’s also understandable is when a little smack talk flies after the ultimate goal is met: a championship. Guys let it all loose at the parade.
In this instance, however, it seems a little over the top.
Jonny Gomes, an outfielder for the World Champion Kansas City Royals decided to make his presence felt on stage. Not only was he carrying an American flag, he proclaimed that he was the “un-politically correct person.”
To top it off, he says “we whupped their ass” (in referring to the New York Mets).
This guy played a grand total of zero games during the 2015 postseason. The man wasn’t even on the Royals 25-man World Series roster. He basically held the same relevance as the hot dog guy at Kauffman Stadium – both Royals employees who helped the team in hidden ways, I suppose.
You might as well have gotten the guy who sells Cracker Jacks to make the same idiotic speech.[su_button url=”https://elitesportsny.com/2015/11/03/new-york-mets-5-way-early-offseason-predictions/” target=”blank” background=”#000080″ size=”10″ wide=”yes” radius=”0″]NEXT: 5 Mets Way Too Early Offseason Predictions[/su_button]
