It is no secret that the New York Yankees and the rest of the MLB are being tortured by the owners as they failed to curate a reasonable CBA agreement with the players union. The players are simply looking for an adequate balance in funds, but the owners are adamant in keeping their leverage monetarily for the future, despite holding players hostage for the first six years of their professional careers.
Yankees players have been vocal about the mistreatment, and with the owners already pushing back the start of Opening Day, the 2022 season is in legitimate jeopardy.
Outfielder Joey Gallo tried to have some fun with the situation, building himself a LinkedIn profile, noting his experience as a player for the Texas Rangers and Yankees.
Gallo listed his skills as “striking out, heading into the shift, and getting dressed weird,” hilarious sentiments to his game.
Gallo struggled considerably after joining the Yankees at the trade deadline, hitting .160 with 13 homers and 22 RBIs. During the first portion of the season with the Rangers, playing in 95 games, he hit .223 with 25 homers and 55 RBIs. He struck out a collective 213 times, the most in his career. However, he also curated 111 walks, breaking his previous best by more than 30.
Gallo is hoping to take a significant jump forward with the Yankees next season, but that will have to wait as the first two series of the campaign have already been canceled and many more could follow.
