Aroldis Chapman Enjoys A Bit of Astros Trolling
Best autograph since John Hancock

A Yankees fan by the name of Pat Claeys brought an interesting item for an autograph to be signed during Yankees Spring Training. Mr. Claeys made a poster of a Trash Can and a “Houston Trashtros” logo on it and brought it to Aroldis Chapman to sign. Chapman more than happily obliged.
Why Chapman? Well, one might think it’s because it’s Mr. Claeys’s favorite player. But more likely? It’s because of this:
Ugh. Remember the elation we all felt (well, everyone but Yankees fans and Chapman/the Yankees) when that ball left the bat? It was a simpler time filled with high hopes and admiration for the Astros and Altuve. Sigh.
