Over the next couple weeks, Pinstripe Alley will ask for your help in determining SB Nation's best MLB GIFs of the season by voting on the top Yankees GIFs of the year in several different categories. The series begins today with the five funniest Yankees GIFs of 2014.
Mark Teixeira, Beekeeper
Ah, who could forget Tex during that one spring training game against the Red Sox where a swarm of bees caused a delay. So what was the meaning of the honey?
"What I thought was, if you could just do a line of honey out to the parking lot, the bees would maybe follow it, and then just leave us alone." - Sporting News
Tex, how do you even
Future Hall of Famers Derek Jeter and Ichiro Suzuki did not have seasons to remember at the plate, but over the past couple years, they've formed an amusing bond. After Ichiro's only home run of the year, the Captain put on his ultimate troll face to pretend like he was unimpressed. Lulz.
"It's a Tarp!"
"Rain delay theater" was one of my favorite posts of the year due to the sheer amount of ridiculous GIFs to emerge from one long rain delay on July 23rd that ended up being called hours later before play ever resumed. One member of the grounds crew in particular struggled to get the tarp on the field.
A moment of silence for his memory.
Pizza Order for Brett
Another gem from rain delay theater, Brett Gardner was seen at one point on the phone that's normally just used for calling the bullpen. We can only assume he was ordering a pizza during the delay.
Brendan Ryan is not a good hitter. He had just four doubles in 124 plate appearances this year, but he notched one of them on July 3rd against the Twins. He expected a fist bump from first base coach Mick Kelleher. He did not get one. So he took care of business himself. Honorable.
