How did Walker Buehler fit into those super tight pants?!!?
Seriously -- the Dodgers pitcher's pants were so tight during Monday's playoff game against the Braves, it was trending on social media!!
Was it a fashion statement? Did someone misplace your usual pants? Was it uncomfortable? Growth spurt? SO MANY QUESTIONS!!

The problem ... the Dodgers ended up losing the game 5 to 1 and Walker was in a pretty bad mood afterward.
So, when a reporter asked Walker for a tight-pants explanation -- the pitcher shut the guy down and ended his press conference!
"Not the time or place Michael," 26-year-old Walker said while shaking his head condescendingly.

Sure, tough question to answer after a heartbreaking loss -- but those pants were skinny as hell!!
In fact, reporters were so desperate for answers -- they even asked Braves starting pitcher Max Fried if he had any insight!
Sadly, he did not.
He did.I dont know how Max kept a straight face there. Truly has to be the stupidest question ever. pic.twitter.com/68iwAZJcyd— Lola in the USA (@Pray4USA20) October 13, 2020

As for his performance, Buehler pitched his face off despite some almost-certain circulation issues ... striking out 7 and allowing just 3 hits in the loss.
