Yankees Manager Joe Girardi Flips Out On Heckler After White Sox Sweep His Squad

The Chicago White Sox completed a series sweep of the New York Yankees on Wednesday night, and when a bold White Sox enthusiast tried to remind Yankees manager Joe Girardi of that fact during his post-game interview with media members, Girardi didn't take kindly to the comment. To be fair, the heckler shouting at Girardi clearly lacked tact. The manager was trying to fulfill his obligations and speak with the media after a tough series, so when he yelled out for the White Sox supporter to "shut up" in the middle of his interview, he was probably on the right side of the argument.
