Are we sure this isn’t a Tim and Eric bit? Maybe Key and Peele started writing commercials for the team? The New York Yankees are starting to release the commercials they’ve been working on and they are definitely bringing the heat.
The Yanks’ bullpen is one of the best in baseball and apparently, one of the funnier in baseball. Dellin Betances and Aroldis Chapman steal the show in this commercial. David Robertson, Tommy Kahnle, and Chad Green do a great job in their supporting roles.
If all goes well this season, the bullpen will fall into the same roles that they took in this commercial. Betances was a non-factor down the stretch and in the playoffs last season, but the four-time All-Star could be poised for a bounce-back season. Robertson, Green, and Kahnle were all magnificent in their roles last season, but Betances is the one with the ability to be unhittable when he’s on his game. Hopefully, for Yankee fans, he’s ready to bring the heat this season.
And no, I didn’t forget about Chapman. I love what he’s doing here. Let the other guys do the heavy lifting, but when it’s time to shut it down, he’s there. He’s not gonna be the guy fixing the thermostat or checking on the boiler. He’s the guy you call in when you need to put a bow on things and shut it down. He’s the guy who really brings the heat. And by bringing the heat, he means he’s coming at you with 100 plus on his fastball.
This will be the first full year the Yankees will have with all five of these tremendous relievers. Yankee fans have to be excited.
