New York Yankees are on fire in the ongoing season. Despite coming off a poor season in 2021, and even a dull free agency, The Bronx Bombers have emerged as the best team in 2022. Notably, winning 49 out of 65 games is no joke. But the Aaron Boone-led team has done wonders.

There is a reason the Yankees are playing such attractive games this season. They are not relying on certain players to win games for them. Instead, the versatility and maturity of their roster have been a huge plus for the Pinstripes’ successful run this season.

Talking about their recent game, the New York Yankees are playing a three-game series against their division rivals, the Toronto Blue Jays. During the second game of the series, the Blue Jays pitcher Alek Manoah and manager, Charlie Montoyo, shared engaged in a heated argument with the on-field umpire.

The Yankees are through a wonderful run. No doubt about that. But the opponents are not taking it very well. In the recent game, when the Blue Jays pitcher, Alek Manoah, threw a wayward pitch, it hit directly into Trevino’s arms.

What was more shocking was that the Jays manager came from the dugout to argue with the home plate umpire about the nasty pitch. Wasting no time, the home-plate umpire ejected him from the game.

The Blue Jays pitcher, Manoah, also favored his manager and said he never wants to see anyone get ejected.

“I don’t ever want to see anyone get ejected, especially for something he’s right about,” Manoah said. “I appreciated him going to war for our team. Not just me, but for everybody.”
