Craig Kimbrel finished out the regular season with a pair of saves, but he may head into the off-season with a bruised ego after Phillies fans mocked him on Saturday night.
The flame-throwing closer is known for looking in at the catcher for his signs hunched over with his throwing arm hung out like a leg on the letter M before coming set. Phillies fans behind home plate at Citizens Bank Park mocked Kimbrel as he was pitching to Freddy Galvis with one out and runners on second and third. It’s actually quite amusing.

Say what you will about Kimbrel’s idiosyncrasy, but it works. He ends the season with 47 saves, a 1.61 ERA, and a 95/26 K/BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings.
