On Tuesday, a Yankee fan made a jersey swap that pictured Stroman in pinstripes and tweeted it at the free agent pitcher. Stroman, who spent the last two-and-a-half seasons with the Mets, certainly didn't pull any punches as he responded:
There was an additional tweet that was directed at Mets pitcher Taijuan Walker where Stroman alluded to the fact that his infamous dreadlocks and tattoos weren't "going anywhere." Of course, this points to the fact that the Yankees have a tradition where they don't allow players to have long hair.
In addition, Stroman pointed out that the Yankees hadn't won a World Series since 2009 despite rolling out a large payroll.
Yankees haven’t won a World Series since 2009. They routinely spend more than any other team and acquire the biggest names at every trade deadline. The way the spend and players they get should result in much more success than they’ve had…you don’t agree?— Marcus Stroman (@STR0) November 16, 2021
Stroman has definitely been a reliable arm in recent years. In his time with the Mets, Stroman had a strong 3.21 ERA to go along with 218 strikeouts. The veteran right-hander is also coming off a season in which he owned a 3.02 ERA and pitched 179 innings across 33 starts.
