David Aardsma mocks Jose Valverde after blown save

Yankees relief pitcher David Aardsma missed most of the season recovering from elbow surgery, but he didn’t miss a chance to mock Tigers closer Jose Valverde after Detroit blew a 3-1 lead during Game 4 of the ALDS against the Oakland A’s on Wednesday.

Aardsma wrote the following message on his Twitter account shortly after the Tigers lost 4-3:

Valverde’s final stat line for the night: 0.2 innings, four hits, three earned runs, a blown save, a loss, and one zinger.

And one question: Why didn’t Tigers manager Jim Leyland replace Valverde after he allowed three hard-hit balls to start the inning?

    I couldnt agree more. What a little puke. Sit the down until you win something. Way to cost your team a trip to the ALCS.

    Yeah, because Aardsma is truly something special. Speak up when you’ve actually done something, chump.
