The New York Yankees have their focus set on free agency this off-season, but Mets starter Marcus Stroman continues to take shots at the team and their management style. On Tuesday, Stroman went after a few fans on Twitter and responded to Mets pitcher Taijuan Walker that he prefers to wear durags, dreads, and tattoos, a silent shot at the Yankees for their strict rules.
Durags, dreads, and tattoos ainâ€™t going anywhere cuz. Lol

Stroman responded to several fans who shot back at the starter, and his words werenâ€™t exactly civil.
You mad because that crazy payroll continues to let you down year after year? Get off my page and go communicate with the front office bitter boy.
Stroman spoke specifically about the Yankees’ payroll and how their ability to pay players monstrous deals hasnâ€™t translated to wins. I hate to say it, but he isnâ€™t wrong about that, considering the team hasnâ€™t reached the World Series in over a decade despite having one of the highest payrolls in baseball year after year.
Yankees havenâ€™t won a World Series since 2009. They routinely spend more than any other team and acquire the biggest names at every trade deadline. The way the spend and players they get should result in much more success than theyâ€™ve hadâ€¦you donâ€™t agree?
Aaron Hicks injury update:
â€œHeâ€™s in position to do that,â€ said Yankees manager Aaron Boone. â€œAs a matter of fact, he sent me some video of him in the cage the other day swinging and he feels great. I think he looks great and weâ€™ll just see where we are in the next few weeks about the final sign-off on that.â€
