    Nice that after the Yanks have raised the white flag on the season Girardi is still going to pitch Betances until his arm falls off.

    They literally gave Arod $27 million to fuck off.
    Mid-season too, that's pretty funny.

    Loving the purge. McCann cleared waivers.

    Arod out of the lineup at Fenway.

    Yanks clearly attempting to shame him into signing somewhere else so he can get to 700 dingers and they can save $27 mill.

    I think he's playing Thurs.

    That'd be great if he fucked off to Miami or something.

    Also would love to cost the Sox a few games this week!

    I mean, come on, let the poor fuck get to 700 in a Yankee uniform already. It's not like the Yanks are playing for anything at this point. And sure, he's not worth what they're paying him, newsflash, we all knew that when they inked that ridiculous contract. Yankees just look remarkably petty in all this. Let the guy play.

    I get what you're saying, but the piece of shit probably won't even hit 4 jacks the rest of the year, and is a waste of a roster spot in 2017.

    Either way, didn't really care what they did with him, this guy is one of the worst Yankees ever, a stain on our otherwise remarkable ginch.

    I can't wait til Chase Headley is gone. Such a piece of trash.

    The mets currently don't even 'own' a winning record.

    Austin and Judge HRs in their first games. Fucking epic.

    Edit: first at bats*

    Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer

    Aaron Judge's first MLB homer went 457 feet and had an exit velocity of 109 mph, per ESPN's home run tracker.

    Aaron Judge's first career HR:

    Calculated at 457 feet
    Longest HR by a Yankee this season
    Longest HR by a Yankee at home since A-Rod in 2011
    Tied for 4th-longest HR at Yankee Stadium since it opened in 2009


    Clear to say my boner for Judge is strong.

    The mid season purge was unprecedented. Kudos to Cashman for flipping the roster in like 2 weeks.

    Judge is a friggin giant. I mean like Frank Howard, Dave Winfield, Willy McCovey big. So glad he chose baseball over football. He just murders the ball.

    He will probably get a large l number of strikeouts at first. But he was absolutely beasting it at Scranton. I guess he's learned to turn on inside pitches which were giving him problems earlier. If he can do that he'll raise his average several points. So look out!
