A young Yankees fan went on an epic rant about how he never wanted Mannny Machado anyway
And while there are sure to be many fans of those teams that will claim that "they didn't want Machado anyway," there's one young Yankee fan in particular who's absolutely incensed at the suggestion that he ever hoped the former Oriole would wear the pinstripes. Straight from Yankees Spring Training in Tampa, I present to you, the early frontrunner for baseball rant of the year.

God bless this kid. He's no older than 10 and it sounds like he's been listening to New York sports talk radio for the last three decades. His main point -- that no team should ever acquire players from their big rivals -- is as invigoratingly spicy as it is unrealistic, but you still have to tip your cap for the fervor and energy that the little dude brings to the table.
Jeffrey Maier will forever be the most iconic young Yankees fan, but this kid deserves a spot on the Mount Rushmore of pre-teen pinstripe passion.
