Donald Trump has all kinds of opinions about the Yankees

23 Comments

Donald Trump weighed in on A-Rod’s struggles and Derek Jeter’s injury in the past day or so. And he did it with his usual subtlety.

On A-Rod:

Trump called on star Alex Rodriguez to donate his contract to charity. “He doesn’t make the Yankees any money and he doesn’t perform,” Trump tweeted. “He is a $30M/yr rip off.”

If you called into a talk radio show to make that point you wouldn’t get past the screeners due to the cliche and pedestrian nature of his rant, but I guess if you’ve convinced enough people that you’re important, it’s newsworthy.

Trump’s take on Jeter — who just sold his penthouse in Trump’s fancy-schmancy building —  is a little more inventive:

“Derek Jeter had a great career until 3 days ago when he sold his apartment at Trump World Tower,” Trump tweeted. “I told him not to sell- karma?”

Seems like the most likely explanation, yes.

Oy.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said that starter David Price has been shut down for the remainder of the season during Wednesday’s appearance on WEEI’s Ordway, Merloni, and Fauria.

Price, 34, missed nearly a month between August 5-31 with a wrist injury (TFCC cyst). He returned on September 1, but lasted only two innings against the Angels and hasn’t pitched since.

Price ends a disappointing 2019 season with a 4.28 ERA and a 128/32 K/BB ratio in 107 1/3 innings across 22 starts. He’ll enter the fifth year of his seven-year, $217 million contract in 2020. $96 million remains on the deal.
