PSA Comments of the Day 1/9/16: Kirby's dream land

Am I rooting for Kirby Yates to do well just for Kirby puns, Kirby GIFs, and Kirby headlines? Yes. Yes I most certainly am.

I don't even care about Yates in this photo. In fact, sign that seagull, Cashman!

The Yankees did stuff yesterday. It was minor stuff, but stuff nonetheless. Caitlin will have a full post up regarding it soon. I'm just here for the puns.

Brian Cashman signed recently DFA'd pitching Kirby Yates for cash considerations. Due to that, some might say that Kirby sucks. Those people are living in a dream land and haven't thought about the adventure he's been on though. Kirby may not be a super star, but he might one day look into an amazing mirror and realize he has potential. I'm sure he doesn't want to cause fans to tilt 'n tumble, nor create a nightmare in dream land. We shall see what kind of plans the Yankees have for him, so try not to have a mass attack of panic over him. Just return to dream land.

Comments of the Day

If you understand everything I wrote in the opening paragraph of this post, you should understand why this COTD is hilarious.

GIF of the Day

Again, the GIF possibilities alone are why I'm happy we got Kirby Yates.

Honorable Mod Mention

I think I win for all the Kirby puns.

Fun Questions

  • Did you ever play any Kirby games? (I will also count using him in Smash Bros.)
  • Playoff football starts today. Make your predictions for this weekend.

Song of the Day

Hurt by Nine Inch Hails

It's the end of Rick and Morty week on Pinstripe Alley. I decided to go with a live performance of this song instead of the studio version used in one of the best scenes of Rick and Morty. Seriously, if you haven't watched this show yet, you should. As always, please link us your song of the day.

Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. Baseball will be with us once again. Soon.
