  • A shirtless Max Scherzer surprised the TBS studio when he showed up for his interview looking very happy and admittedly, “drunk, whatever” after the Dodgers’ big Wild Card win.
  • Scherzer talked about having his former teammate Juan Soto in the stands before hilariously complaining about the “echo” in the headphones.

Max Scherzer went on a roller coaster of emotions Wednesday night during the Los Angeles Dodgers’ big win over the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Wild Card game.

First, he was tasked with leading the Dodgers on the mound in the winner takes all game.

Then Max Scherzer got yanked from the game by manager Dave Roberts after less than five innings – and wasn’t very happy about it – with the game tied 1-1.

Finally, however, Max Scherzer was able to get some relief when his teammate Chris Taylor hit a dramatic walk-off two run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning, allowing the Dodgers to move on in the postseason.

It was enough to make even someone as laser-focused as Max Scherzer lose his sh-t a little bit.

So much so, in fact, that Scherzer, looking a little worse for wear, showed up shirtless, very relieved and about as happy as we’ve ever seen him during a postgame interview he did with TBS.

That’s just awesome. And so is this…

As we can see from video from inside the Dodgers’ clubhouse after the game, there’s a pretty good reason Scherzer wasn’t wearing a shirt… and was feeling a little pickled.

Max Scherzer appeared to have composed himself a little bit later for the post-game presser, and put a shirt on, but he was still a lot more jovial than most fans are typically used to seeing him.
