The New York Yankees found their season slogan Thursday. They have Aaron Boone’s ejection to thank for that.
As Boone was being tossed from Game 1 of the team’s doubleheader, he called the Yankees “f---ing savages in the box.”
How did the players feel about the whole thing? First baseman Luke Voit got behind Boone’s words, saying the Yankees “are a bunch of savages.”

The team got behind that phrase in other ways too.
The Yankees were playing some song between games with lyrics that prominently featured the word “savage”

Given that, it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see a few Yankees wearing those t-shirts in the coming days. Even if they don’t fully agree with the message, the opportunity to troll their manager is too tempting to pass up.
