Apparently some people take issue with Rafael Soriano untucking his shirt after a save

Last night, mere seconds after locking down the save in the Yankees-Mets game, Rafael Soriano untucked his shirt. It’s the first time I’ve noticed him doing it, but apparently he does it all the time. OK, whatever.

But apparently enough people take issue with this that someone felt the need to ask Joe Girardi about it this afternoon:


It’s been decades since spiking the football was invented. Jeffrey Leonard’s one-flap-down home run trot came in the 80s. We’re nearly 25 years into the post-Icky Shuffle Era. In light of that, I’m struggling to think who could possibly care about this, but I guess there is someone to complain about any given thing out there.

    I have no problem with him doing it. If he wants to look like a slob on national TV that’s his deal, not mine.

    If I was a closer, I’d not only untuck my shirt, but I’d lift it up to reveal a tatoo of Brian Wilson crossing his arms while looking to the sky.

    I don’t like the Yankees, and love to rip them any time I can, but still don’t care about this. Game is over at that point. That has to be one of the mildest victory celebrations, if it even is that.

      Right there with you Rooney. I enjoying dogging the Yankees more than eating Chicken.
      But this is a NON-ISSUE.
