To all the Yankee haters…I’d like to start off by offering my sincere condolences. The New York Yankees are back! Which means I’m back, right Kip and PDub? Screw you two. People, do not listen to the lies these jerks tell you about my fandom of the Yankees, it’s been lifelong, strong and has never wavered. But that’s not why I’m here and I’m sorry I wasted an entire paragraph stooping to the level of those clowns and having to defend my love for the New York Yankees.
“THEY SAID IT WAS A REBUILDING YEAR.” Congratulations to the New York Yankees on overcoming a 2-0 deficit and moving on to the ALCS ⚾️💙pic.twitter.com/cKRPol9mkI

So yea, the Yankees are back. I know it’s only the ALCS and the Yankees have a ton of work to do to beat the Astros and make it back to the World Series, but win lose or draw (not possible, duh) The New York Yankees are a badass team and you better get used to it. I’d like all the Yankee haters to do me a favor and just reexamine your hatred for this team…unless you’re a Red Sox fan, y’all can just go pout and find yourself a new manager.
I’ll admit, the Yankees have bought and paid for several World Series titles because they have more money than anyone else. But let’s take a look at this team. What’s to hate about the 2017 Yankees? One of my co-hosts says he hates Aaron Judge’s teeth. What? Shut up. This team is young, exciting and was built organically. No mega priced superstars. You can find those guys on the Red Sox now. This team is fun and likeable. ADMIT IT! Bunch of kids overachieving and in a position most baseball experts thought was at least a year or two away.
Oh and let’s not forget this team just overcame a 2-0 deficit. Let’s also not forget the loss in game 2 was a major disaster on so many levels and New Yorkers were already talking about firing Joe Girardi, who will likely win manager of the year. No big deal, they just went out and won 3 straight after everyone had written them off. Wait, let’s also not forget that this was against the Cleveland Indians, a team that was historically good for a long stretch during the regular season. Which leads me to one last thing we must not forget…Yes I did pick the team that just blew the 2-0 series lead to make it to the World Series. Damn, I’m wrong. WOOOHOOO.
The Yankees also accomplished something that nobody thought was possible. Replacing Derek Jeter. Everyone wants to talk about Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez and rightfully so but oh my goodness Didi Gregorius! THANK YOU! You are now the newest Yankee playoff hero. Welcome to the high life. Next up after you win the World Series, hit the town of NYC and before you do that hire an assistant or two and have them start putting together ready made care packages for your lady friends that depart your domicile after a night on the town. You’re going to have a good time.
What an exciting ALCS we’re going to have. Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees. Two deserving teams that have built their teams the old fashioned way and have some incredible young stars. I realize this is very cliché to say but The Yankees have nothing to lose and are truly playing with house money. This season is already a massive success but hey, let’s keep playing some ball. Title number 28 probably wasn’t expecting these youngins to be knocking on the door so soon but I don’t think it would mind if the Yankees win you before you are ready. Number 28 will have 27 other siblings to help you through your premature birth. Let’s go get it! Let’s go Yankees!!
