The New York Yankees found their season slogan Thursday. They have Aaron Boone’s ejection to thank for that.
As Boone was being tossed from Game 1 of the team’s doubleheader, he called the Yankees “f---ing savages in the box.”
How did the players feel about the whole thing? First baseman Luke Voit got behind Boone’s words, saying the Yankees “are a bunch of savages.”
The team got behind that phrase in other ways too.

Given that, it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see a few Yankees wearing those t-shirts in the coming days. Even if they don’t fully agree with the message, the opportunity to troll their manager is too tempting to pass up.
