Yankees fans: this is why we all hate your team

OK, maybe “hate” is a strong term, but there’s a reason why people get all bent-out-of-shape about the Yankees, and stuff like this is the reason:

And yes, we know what you’re going to say: “it’s Harper and the Daily News and they’re full of it.”  Well, be that as it may, the reason they’re allowed to be so full of it like this is that this particular brand of full of it sells a lot of papers because it reflects the opinions of a great many Yankees fans.  If you’re more reasonable than that, wonderful. But realize that you’re in the minority.

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
