Around the Empire: Yankees news - 4/1/18

New, comments

Pinstripe Alley has learned that the injuries to McKinney and Warren were caused by none other than Spider-Man, known fugitive from the law. Spider-Man is also to blame for Betances’ rocky 8th inning. If seen, this wall crawling menace should be arrested on site.

MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: Yesterday was not a great day for the New York Yankees. Both Billy McKinney and Adam Warren had to be removed from the game due to injuries. We have recently learned that those injuries were caused by none other than Spider-Man. Pinstripe Alley’s new Managing Editor, Mr. J. Jonah Jameson, has survived many an attack by the wall crawler and is not shocked by this development. It’s unclear what Spider-Man’s motives are in this. More on this story as it develops.

Newsday | David Lennon: Dellin Betances was not injured, but had a rough outing nonetheless. A disastrous 8th inning for Dellin allowed Kevin Pillar to pretty much steal his way home from 1st base. When asked about the incident, Betances blamed Spider-Man, saying he aided Pillar with webbing and distractions. Sources could not confirm or deny this. I, for one, am inclined to agree with Betances in this matter.

NorthJersey.com | Pete Caldera: The Yankees made a minor league deal yesterday. The veteran LHP Oliver Perez was signed to a minor-league deal. He will reported to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, unless otherwise detained by that blasted web slinger. If Oliver Perez makes it to the big league team, which is a definite possibility, he will earn $1 million dollars. Rumor has it that Spider-Man may look to steal Perez’s million, if he gets it. We shall see.

CurbedNY | Amy Plitt: Today the Yankee will finish their series in Toronto. Tomorrow, they will return home to the Bronx for their first game at Yankee Stadium. Amy Plitt of Curbed NY has put together a guide of tips and things to know about our beloved baseball home. One tip to add is just to be careful, as there’s no telling when or where that masked menace may show up.

Just a reminder that Pinstripe Alley is now offering cash money for photos of Spider-Man. An extra bonus if he is caught in the act of some nefarious scheme.
