The picture you see is Kansas City Royal’s pitcher Johnny Cueto giving the slash throat gesture to the entire Houston Astros team after the Royals went up 7-2 in the bottom of the eighth inning in game 5 of the ALDS.
The arrogant Royal’s hurler who was ineffective in game 2 and quite lucky to even be in a position to cut the Astro’s throat after the Astros were 6 outs away from knocking Royals out of playoffs in game 4 at Houston.
The Royals did metaphorically cut the throats of the Houston baseball team in the bottom of the eighth, but Dominican Republic born Cueto will be made to feel quite uncomfortable by Astro fans next time he is brave enough to pitch in Houston. It is not like the the Royals dominated the Astros. A blown double play ball by the Astro’s shortstop is the only reason Cueto even had the opportunity to display his savage, thug like throat cutting gesture!
