When the news broke yesterday about the Houston Astros and how they used cameras to steal signs in 2017, it sent Yankees Twitter into hysteria. Fans were still riding high about the fact that Houston lost the World Series and their shot at perhaps a dynasty, so this latest development was just fuel on the fire to continue to hate the entire franchise.
The news also elicited reactions from a few Yankees players on social media. The Yankees, as you may well know, were 27 outs from the World Series in 2017. They lost every game at Minute Maid Park in the ALCS that year. Aaron Judgethen lost the AL MVP Award to Jose Altuve.
First of all, I feel like whenever Aaron Judge posts on social media, it’s like seeing a shooting star. It’s rare, but when it happens, it’s beautiful. You stop what you’re doing and re-read over and over. I’m not a betting man, but I’d put some money on Judge winning AL MVP in 2020. Our Captain is pissed.
This made me love Luis Severino even more. THE MAN JUST GOT MARRIED YESTERDAY. He should be on an island somewhere with his wife, sipping a margarita without a care, leaving his iPhone in his shoe. But no. Sevy’s pissed, too. He even doubled down and retweeted the SportsCenter tweet.
[Luis Cessa has entered the chat] Cessa showed me a lot this year, especially in the playoffs where he pitched well. He’s the perfect long-man in the pen for 2020. It fires me up that Cessa is fired up.
I strongly disagree with this // Estoy en desacuerdo con esto 😡🤦🏻♂️
Brian Cashman was asked about the story during the GM Meetings, and predictably didn’t say anything of substance. But you can sort of tell he wanted to unleash a Ric Flair-style promo and destroy Houston.
