Aroldis Chapman likes Instagram post calling Joe Girardi an ‘imbecile’

Joe Girardi

Joe Girardi may have cost the New York Yankees a win in Game 2 of the ALDS Friday night when he did not challenge a critical call, and it would appear flame-throwing reliever Aroldis Chapman is among those who are frustrated with the manager.

With the Yankees leading 8-3 and two out in the bottom of the sixth, Girardi chose not to challenge a questionable call where it was ruled that Lonnie Chisenhall was hit by a pitch. The next batter belted a grand slam to get the Cleveland Indians back into the game, which they eventually won to take a 2-0 series lead.

Fans were understandably furious, and one of them called Girardi a “complete imbecile” and called for the Yankees to find a new manager. Chapman — or the person running the pitcher’s official Instagram account — gave the comment a “like.”
