As Marcus Stroman was pitching in the bottom of the fourth inning with the Mets playing the Diamondbacks in Arizona on Tuesday night, D-Backs announcer and former manager Bob Brenly randomly and bizarrely remarked on Stroman's durag.

"I'm sure that's the same durag that Tom Seaver used to wear when he pitched for the Mets," Brenly said.

The comment from Brenly about the durag Stroman was wearing under his Mets cap came from out of nowhere, and Stroman discussed it after the game on Twitter.

"Onward and upward...through all adversity and racist undertones," Stroman wrote. "The climb continues through all!"

Stroman also tweeted that he would soon be selling durgas via his HDMH Apparel brand.

In addition, Stroman retweeted a number of tweets calling out Brenly for his remark and said "exactly" while agreeing with a comment saying that Stroman had "no real course of action" to properly respond to Brenly.
