The Yankees are kicking the Indians while they’re down.
After coming back from an 0-2 hole and winning Game 5 of the ALDS to end Cleveland’s season, the Bombers took to social media to make the Indians’ three straight losses hurt even more.
“Final: Yankees 5, The Team That Blew A 2-0 Series Lead 2,” the Yankees’ Instagram account posted after the win along with a photo of CC Sabathia smiling.
They then took to Twitter to drag the Indians, in particular Jose Ramirez, even more.
“We like cupcakes. And champagne,” they wrote, quote tweeting a Jose Ramirez post from earlier in the week about the Indians being 3-0 at Yankee Stadium’ 2017 record in the Bronx.
“We’re 3-0 at Yankee Stadium this year cupcake,” was what Ramirez wrote.
The Indians have not responded.
Their last social media post was on Twitter thanking fans for a “memorable season.”
Cleveland started the war of words between both teams earlier in the season.
After Jay Bruce hit a home run in Game 1 to put the Indians ahead 3-0, the team tweeted “Bruce is on our team because our owner wrote a check that competitors for Jay wouldn’t.”
The post referenced the Yankees’ failed attempt to trade with the Mets to acquire Jay Bruce earlier in the season.
The Yankees got the last laugh.
