Marcus Stroman laughs at notion of going to the Yankees

New York Mets starting pitcher Marcus Stroman laughs at the notion of him signing with the New York Yankees over Twitter.

While some New York Yankees fans may love to see Marcus Stroman switch allegiances, the New York Mets starter does not see himself in The Bronx in the slightest.

Stroman has already clapped back at a weird preseason projection from Bill James this week, so letting a Yankees fan on Twitter know he’s not suiting up for them in free agency was not out of the question. While Stroman would not even have to move to play for New York’s American League franchise, he is not about to follow his former skipper Luis Rojas over from Queens.

Here is Stroman’s reaction to a graphic of him in Yankees pinstripes.

And here he is telling his Mets teammate Taijuan Walker why he is not going to the Yankees.

Marcus Stroman free agency: Mets RHP is not about to join the Yankees

With Stroman remaining steadfast to his dreads and du-rags, that would be an issue with him joining the clean-cut Yankees. While the tattoos are not coming off either, Stroman may not want to pitch in long sleeves during the dog days of summer for New York either. The dress code the Yankees have might sound stupid to keep great players from going there, but it is a roadblock.

Ultimately, it should not matter what you look like or your sense of style on a baseball diamond. A player should be judged by his character and the way he performs on the field. The Yankees have not won the AL pennant in well over a decade now. They are in dire need of starting pitching. While Stroman would have improved their rotation, you can cross him off going to the Yankees for good.

If the Yankees do not win the AL pennant this season, people and players will be losing their jobs.
