Yankees slugger Mike Ford had some fun by calling out a personality at Barstool Sports.
The New York Yankees have all but officially dismantled the Boston Red Sox so far in 2020. All that’s left is forcing the team to disband and exporting them to Canada to become the new team in Montreal. That much was on display yet again on Sunday Night Baseball.
For the second time this year, the Yankees beat the Red Sox in primetime in front of all of America and first baseman Mike Ford made the difference in this one, cranking a two-run homer off Chris Mazza in the bottom of the third inning to make it 4-1.
After that home run, we talked about Alex Rodriguez’s ridiculousness, as he said Ford “had a little bit of a Babe Ruth look” to him. A-Rod’s made pretty outrageous comparisons in the past, which we also heard two weeks ago when he mentioned Aaron Judge in the same sentence as Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Tiger Woods after his go-ahead HR.
But A-Rod’s words sparked criticism from all over, especially among Red Sox fans. Ford had a perfect response to the comparison after the game and had an even better clap back to Jared Carrabis of Barstool Sports, who, as expected, took a cheap shot at Ford since he has nothing better to do with the Red Sox being the MLB’s version of the Cleveland Browns.
It’s true. If the Yankees weren’t powerbombing lesser opponents through a stack of tables week in and week out, all Carrabis would have on his docket for the day is jacking highlights from MLB’s official Twitter account and commenting “piss missile” or “jumbo dong” on all of them. Without the Red Sox, Carrabis is nothing but a user with an egg profile picture.
Naturally, Carrabis doubled down (after all, that’s the Barstool way, regardless of the act committed!) and decided to call Ford out for calling him out for … calling Ford out for no reason?
Maybe every Yankee fan in your mentions has a point?
Stay hot, rocket.
