• Yankees To Flip Rookie Hazing

    Posted by on September 27th, 2010 · Comments (5)

    As you may know, many baseball teams, during their last road trip of the season, will hide their rookies’ street clothes and replace them with funny/embarrasing costumes – and then force the rooks to parade about in public in their new threads. Well, this season, the Yankees are flipping on that, and making their veterans play dress up. Here’s what I’ve heard on that, so far…just the plans for some Yankees pitchers…

    Joba Chamberlain has to dress up like Brian Bruney.
    A.J. Burnett has to dress up like Jeff Weaver.
    Javier Vazquez has to dress up like Carl Pavano.
    Jonathan Albaladejo has to dress up like Colter Bean.
    Chad Gaudin has to dress up like Tanyon Sturtze.
    Sergio Mitre has to dress up like Esteban Loaiza.
    Damaso Marte has to dress up like Felix Heredia.
    Dustin Moseley has to dress up like Dan Giese.
    Alfredo Aceves has to dress up like Ramiro Mendoza.
    And, Chan Ho Park will be invited back to dress up like Kei Igawa. Or, was it Igawa being invited back to dress up like Park?

    If we find out any more on the plans, you’ll be the first to know…

      I like it. How about Sanchez as Juan Acevedo? And Nick Johnson as Nick Johnson?

      This post made me go crazy on wikipedia looking for Yankee names from the past. Remember when Brandon Claussen was the next big thing?

      Did anyone know El Duque was in the minors with the Nationals this year, and left the organization after being told if he put up good minor league numbers he’d get a September call-up, did so, and then was told he wasn’t getting one on August 31st? I would’ve loved to have seen him get one more shot. I loved watching that guy pitch. I’m shocked he never developed a knuckleball- I think he tried everything else.

      I like it. I especially like the execution as each of these losers perfectly matches the loser counterpart of yesterday they’ve been paired with.

      #62 as Bruney is priceless, especially. They’re both volatile redneck fatsos.
