New York Yankees’ starting pitcher Domingo German had a few words for Marcus Stroman following his words on Twitter about the Yankee pitching rotation. Currently a free agent, Stroman replied to Barstool Sports’ Journalist Jared Carrabis saying that the Yankees are currently in a drought and they should be winning World Series’ “left and right” with their current payroll.
Besides Cole, thereâ€™s no current Yankee pitcher who will be anywhere in my league over the next 5-7 years. Their pitching always folds in the end. That lineup and payroll should be winning World Seriesâ€™ left and right…yet theyâ€™re in a drought. Lol ðŸ¤·ðŸ¾â€â™‚ï¸

An Instagram account (@yankeesavenue) made a post following this tweet with a photo of Luis Severino who is supposed to return for next season after undergoing Tommy John surgery and missing all of the 2020 season, hinting that the Yankees still have Sevy.
German commented on this photo, “talking sh*t coÃ±o.” If you’re unaware of what that word means, it’s time to check out a translater for a good laugh.

Despite this short social media tirade, Stroman did pay respect to Luis Severino saying via a tweet, “Forgot about Sevy! When heâ€™s healthy, heâ€™s unreal. One of my favorites to watch. Cole and Severino. Thereâ€™s still 3 spots in that staff that need help! Am I wrong? Lol.”
Stroman also mentioned that even though he wasn’t trying to knock the Yankees and he was just simply sharing his thoughts, he said that he’s open to competing anywhere. In a replied tweet Stroman said, “I donâ€™t hold grudges ever. Iâ€™m open to compete wherever next year. Excited to see how free agency plays out!” and “Iâ€™m open to competing wherever my man! Thatâ€™s including the Mets and Yankees!”
After electing to not play during the 2020 season after suffering a calf injury, Stroman’s contract with the New York Mets has expired and he’s now an unrestricted free agent. The Yankees currently are looking to possibly add one more solid starter to the rotation and it’ll be interesting to see if this small knock on the Yanks will affect that.
