Taiwanese video trolls Yankees fans, calls New York ‘done’

This certainly beats any of that Ken Clay animation!

If you didn’t watch the video, you really should. If not (what’s wrong with you?) here’s their reasoning:

1. The Orioles are young and hungry (and Buck Showalter wears an eyepatch).

2. The Rays have the best starting pitching in the division.

3. CC Sabathia, they say, is in danger of being kidnapped by Greenpeace (they don’t say it as nicely as I do, either).

4. Alex Rodriguez is ailing and, well, they suggest he’s no longer getting the help he admitted to once using.

5. Mark Teixeira is indisposed.

6. Derek Jeter is “an overhyped singles slapper.”

I will be joining other Yankee fans attacking the Taiwan consulate in my city today.

Only bringing back the tyrant George Steinbrenner will bring these rampaging Yankee fans back to order.

Aw, these guys are against everything, except Formosa.

That was...really quite awesome.

So many highlights...the mummified Tex might be my favorite

The Yankees have gone 33-32 since the end of July

Lost in translation maybe. No wonder they are injured, that's a lot of doubleheaders.

I liked that (I liked him using a walker, too) but I really enjoyed how they had Jeter subtlely posing and preening after hitting yet another dink single. These guys -- they do their homework.

Glad to see I'm not the only one that really enjoyed that part. The best lol moment was Arod(I believe) corkscrewing himself into the batters box after getting a shot of 'pain killer'.

This pleases me greatly. And speaking as a fan who knows, missing the playoffs is what all the COOL teams do.

Dude, the embassy jokes aren't funny.

You know that they made this video mostly to cheer on the Taiwanese baseball hero of the moment: Chen Wei-Yin. After all, earlier this year they told his story NMA style.

So the Orioles are pirates? That puts a different spin on the '79 Series...

C. C. Sabathia towed back to sea as Greenpeace mistakes him for a beached whale. Definite LOL moment.
   19. GGIAS (aka Poster Nutbag) Posted: September 13, 2012 at 11:17 PM (#4235407)
This is one of the awesomest pieces of awesome ever.

Teixiera looking like one of the men in the hospital at the end of Its a Mad Mad Mad Mad World was pretty awesome. Why was his face all bandaged? Hilarious.

I just dropped $40 on Ebay for the t-shirt from Aug. 9. God, I love this team!

New York is going to win its division by at least three games.
