Delusional Girardi Sees Empire Fighting For AL East

Has someone shown poor Joe Girardi the 2017 Yankees roster? Apparently not, since this is what the skipper of The Evil Ones told the New York Daily News, "I think we’re a club that is fighting for our division. That’s who I think we are." While The Bronx Embalmers did make some decent moves—Aroldis Chapman and (36-year-old) Matt Holiday—their overall club pales in comparison to the Red Sox and Blue Jays. The Pinstriped Posers finished nine games behind Boston last year—and the Red Sox added Chris Sale. As for the balance of the Yankees squad—beyond Masahiro Tanaka and Gary Sanchez—they are AAA quality. As we have said here before, Girardi is a great manager—consistently getting the most out of mediocre teams—but this claim is just silly.
