Dumb TV guy says that the Yankees are the team most deserving of your hatred

Just got back from Connecticut where I was doing NBC SportsTalk the last couple of nights. Last night was pretty fun as I got to gush about Chipper Jones some and hate on the Yankees some too. The video below is me hating on the Yankees.

Note: I didn’t pick Philly, because they’re more an object of pity these days than hatred. And because we weren’t talking about fans as much as the team itself, and I actually find the Phillies players and manager quite likable most of the time.

Stick around as Donny Marshall hates on Duke and Ross Tucker hates on the New England Patriots. Despite the fact that he played for the freakin’ New England Patriots. Loyalty: thy name is Ross Tucker.

Infielder Trevor Plouffe has signed a minor league deal with the Phillies, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports. Plouffe asked for and was granted his release from the Rangers earlier this month.

Plouffe, 31, had a double and a home run in 17 plate appearances with Triple-A Round Rock to start the 2018 season. He spent last year with the Athletics and Rays, putting up a meager .198/.272/.318 batting line in 100 games.

Plouffe has mostly played third base throughout his career, but can also handle the other three infield spots and both outfield corners, so he’ll serve as organizational depth at Triple-A Lehigh Valley for the Phillies.
