This Yankees season has included a bat boy controversy — and now it has a “fats boy” thriller.
Blue Jays supervisor John Schneider was seen shouting, “shut up, fats boy, shut up” within the Yankees’ route because the AL East rivals continued their contentious sequence Tuesday night time.
It began within the high of third inning when Toronto’s dugout — led by pitching coach Pete Walker — began complaining that Luis Rojas had wandered too far out of the coach’s field outdoors the third bottom line.
The priority being that the Yankees coaches have been by some means tipping batters to what pitch was coming — and within the Blue Jays’ minds was presumably the explanation why Aaron Choose was shifting his eyes sideways earlier than homering throughout the eighth inning of Monday’s Yankees victory.
Then, with Rojas rising annoyed, Yankees supervisor Aaron Boone jogged out to hitch the dialogue, and that’s when cameras confirmed Schneider uttering the insult.
There’s one downside, although:
Boone just isn’t fats, nor a boy for that matter.
Rojas can be in good condition.
“In studying lips, he stated ‘shut up, fats boy’ and Boone’s actually not chubby…” play-by-play man Michael Kay stated on the YES Community broadcast. “I don’t know who would fall beneath the heading of fats boy… I don’t know who he’s yelling that to, possibly he’s speaking to me.”
Yankees assistant hitting coach Brad Wilkerson is slightly on the heftier facet, although didn’t appear concerned with the dispute at hand.
In response to the Yankees roster, Choose is the heaviest participant on the workforce at 282 kilos, however nobody has ever accused the 6-foot-7 slugger of being fats.
Anthony Rizzo weighs in at 240 however, at 6-foot-3, the primary baseman is hardly chunky.
May he have been barking at catcher Jose Trevino, who’s a burly 5-10, 215 kilos?
Schneider didn’t verify who his phrases have been meant for.
“It’s two aggressive groups not happy with the way in which every part had shaken out over the past 24 hours,” Schneider advised reporters after the sport, in keeping with the Toronto Solar.
“It’s folks being aggressive. Rojas responded the way in which he did and we responded the way in which we did.”
MLB cleared the Yankees of any wrongdoing after the Blue Jays introduced Monday night time’s state of affairs as much as the league.
“It’s a aggressive surroundings,” Schneider stated. “Issues get stated. Folks say issues they might or might not remorse.”
