Giancarlo Stanton already has a new friend in his new city.
Stanton posted a picture with Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on his Instagram account late Sunday night.
“Dem City boys,” the Yankees outfielder and reigning NL MVP wrote as a caption.
Beckham is looking for a big contract from Big Blue, so perhaps he was getting a tip or two from Stanton, who still has $ 295 million remaining on the MLB-record 13-year, $ 325 million deal he signed with the Marlins in 2014.
Fan reaction from the photo was mixed, as some were worried about Stanton hanging out with the mercurial Beckham, an incredible talent who has also brought his share of controversy to the Giants as well.
“Stay away from that drama queen,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
Many are already wondering how Stanton’s personality will mesh in New York.
Stanton’s Yankees open spring training on Tuesday, with pitchers and catchers reporting to Tampa.
