Former Yankees reliever Jeff Nelson tells Clint Frazier to keep his mouth shut about the Yankees

Jeff Nelson isn’t going to let anyone talk bad about his former team that he won a few World Series with.

Especially Clint Frazier, who made it seem like he was glad to not be a member of the New York Yankees anymore.

Because Nelson is such a classy human being, he felt the need to apologize to the Yankees fan base if his comments were offensive to anyone.

Of course, the Yankees faithful told Nelson he didn’t have to apologize because everyone knew that Nelson will always have the Yankees back, just like he did his teammates when he pitched.
