The young-gun New York Yankees have made a ton of noise this year. Whether it’s been 6-foot-7 behemoth Aaron Judge crushing baseballs 500 feet into opposing parking lots or Luis Severino emerging from the bullpen grave with a 3.03 ERA in 20 shocking starts, the ripe Pinstripes have done little to remain average after last year’s uninspiring 84-win season. Enter the Frazier crew, starring Clint and hometown Todd.

With Oakland Athletics ace Sonny Gray headed to New York (as well as David Robertson, Tommy Kahnle, and Jaime Garcia) — and the Yankees holding on to their core top prospects Gleyber Torres, Chance Adams, Estevan Florial, Justus Sheffield, Tyler Wade — things are looking even brighter in the bumping Bronx than they did one paragraph earlier. Naturally this means it’s naturally time for our beloved red-head tandem to earn the sports meme treatment, with Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer) being played by Todd Frazier and Niles Crane (David Hyde Pierce-slash-real life Stewie Griffin) being played by exuberant 22-year-old Clint Frazier.
Ah, that feels better. Keep it rolling, Pinstripes.
