Todday Babay Loves Being a Yankee
Todd Frazier just went on the Michael Kay show and gave a great interview. I'll be honest, when we first traded for Todd I had no idea he had such a good reputation as a clubhouse guy. All I knew was he played in the Little League World Series for Tom's River, which I think everybody in the entire world knows and will continue to know until Todd Frazier's lineage ends.
Since joining the team it's been pretty obvious he's a dude who likes to have fun. He's always smiling. Always doing some goofy shit on the field. And always cheering on his teammates.
Favorite Quotes from the Interview
"It's a team that understands, whether you're 0 for 4 with 4 strikeouts or you're the game winning hit, it doesn't matter as long as we win the game. That's basically the biggest part. Guys understanding their roles. If you're a lead off guy we need you on base, if you're a home run guy we need you to supply the runs. So I think everyone is understanding their roles too."
This is really big on winning baseball teams. At the beginning of the season every player in spring training should be vying to win a starting job and prove they deserve to play every single day. That's how you start seasons off right. How you end them right is by players taking a step back and understanding there role on this team and excelling at it whenever it comes. This even goes down to the September call ups, which Jake and I talked about on the latest episode of Talkin Yanks.
"We're going for the Red Sox and if we're not thinking that way, we're going to have some issues and we won't even win the Wild Card."
PREACH TODD! PREACH TODDAYY BABY! I've said time and time again it makes zero sense when people say "time to focus on the wild card". No it's not. It's time to focus on winning ever game and playing for keep.
I know majority of Yankees twitter loves to hate Todd. I know they see his batting average and therefore think he's a human pile of trash. First off, batting average shows one skill. It doesn't show you that Todd has 23 RBIs and 8 home runs in his 44 games with the team. It doesn't show that he's been more than solid at third base defensively and it surely doesn't show you just how much he may mean to our young clubhouse.
So go Todd go! Happy to have you. Much better then Carter, he was awful, I hope you never meet him. Get hot. Stay positive and lets win us some games!
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
