Craig Carton lambasts Yankees in epic rant

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports - Presswire

Craig Carton, bombastic WFAN talk show host, went on an epic rant regarding the pathetic performance of New York Yankees' hitters Wednesday morning during the show he co-hosts with Boomer Esiason.

The Yankees trail the Detroit Tigers 3-0 in the best-of-seven American League Championship Series, and the struggles of their highly-paid home run hitters, especially Alex Rodriguez, Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher and Curtis Granderson, have been well-documented. Carton called them "those four tools" during his rant.

The full audio is below, and here is a snippet of Carton's rant from WFAN:

"Put the blame where it belongs," said Carton. "The blame belongs on the guys we're paying. Anibal freakin' Sanchez looked like Greg Maddux the other night! Now (Justin) Verlander, Verlander only struck out three dudes last night. Meaning, he was hittable!

"Let's not worry about the offseason. Let's not worry about options and Josh Hamilton," he said. "Worry about winning one freakin' game and not embarrassing the pinstripes!"
