Aaron Judge’s latest Instagram post will depress Yankees fans
Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge really misses playing in a full Yankee Stadium, y’all.
It’s been a tough offseason for all of us, with the 2020 Yankees campaign feeling like, in retrospect, an extension of the malaise.
After all, is it really a season that counts if Yankees fans can’t partake, en masse, in the celebration and defeat?
We got numb to it quickly because we had to, but the sight of nine pinstriped men taking the field in front of cascading empty stands never became normal. In fact, it sucked every time. And if MLB needs to wait an additional month in 2021 in order to allow fans into the stadium, that’ll be alright with us, simply to avoid this eyesore again.
It seems like, based on his most recent Instagram post, that Aaron Judge feels the same way. Perhaps isolation is getting to him?
Or maybe he just saw his own Christmas ornament and turtled?
“How it started/How it’s going” is usually a meme that, like, conveys how far a person has come from their humble beginnings. Not this time!
No, as far as Judge is concerned, now’s the time to make it clear that he used to be a New York icon who performed in front of throngs in the Bronx, and now? Zero people. Not his fault, though.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I usually come to athletes’ social media accounts to check out, like, a sweet workout video of my favorite player throwing a tire across a garage, or a high-quality postgame outfit. Instead, Judge decided to remind me of my own mortality. Neat!
Judge also fed the trolls on Saturday, responding to the overload of people who brought up his injury troubles in the comments of a workout clip.
Can someone please be nice to Aaron Judge, who was carrying the Yankees’ offense throughout the first few weeks of 2020 before he visited the turf monster in Tampa?
We’re going to need a big year from Judge in 2021 — not only so he gets paid, but so his IG turns back to braggadocio instead of emotional coping.
