“We saved 300 mill phew” – Fans troll Dodgers ace Yoshinobu Yamamoto following disastrous MLB debut

Must read

Yoshinobu Yamamoto made his MLB debut. It was over in one inning after the Los Angeles Dodgers ace surrendered five earned runs.

He was one of the most sought-after free agents this year, but so far, it has not looked even remotely good.

There’s always an acclimation for new players from different countries, but Yamamoto was paid like an ace. He earned $325 million over 12 years, and many teams were in a bidding war.

Some fans, like of the New York Yankees that Yamamoto declined to sign with, ripped Yamamoto for his performance. It was an unpleasant sight for Dodgers fans, but other fans are a bit relieved that the Dodgers might not be so impossibly stacked.

“We saved 300 mill phew,” tweeted one.

Here are some of the top reactions on X:

Not everyone was as critical of Yamamoto, though.

The Dodgers trail by four runs. The offense exploded with eight runs, but their pitching has surrendered an astonishing 12 runs through seven innings as they try a longshot comeback bid.

Yoshinobu Yamamoto let down by Dodgers defense
