Brett Gardner “Hunting” Greg Bird?
Why in the world is New York Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner "hunting" fellow team mate Greg Bird? Well according to the above video, Gardner is "watching" Greg Bird rather than "hunting". The semi-Crocodile Hunter parody shows Gardner watching Greg Bird through a daily routine. The sighting of Greg Bird is a play on the fact that Bird missed all of last season for the New York Yankees due to a shoulder injury. Earlier this spring, Bird was named the team's starting first baseman, replacing last year's starter Mark Teixeira. Teixeira retired from baseball and will be apart of ESPN's MLB coverage this season. Gardner enters this season as of the team's starting outfielders, despite batting just .261 last season. How do you think the New York Yankees will perform this season? Let us know below. Don't forget your home for the New York Yankees this season is ESPN Radio 1045 The Team.
