The New York Yankees have been getting trolled a lot since they were swept by the Houston Astros in the ALCS, which isn't surprising given their status as one of the most hated teams in sports.

Boston Red Sox legend Manny Ramirez wasn't afraid to mix it up with the Yankees during his playing days, and he was more than happy to pile on New York's current woes via social media.

The former Red Sox slugger joked that the Yankees' poor performance had motivated him to make a comeback to baseball. Ramirez, 50, played his last MLB game in 2011.

While Ramirez went to high school in New York and could have easily ended up playing for the Yankees, he never donned the pinstripes during his turbulent 19-year career. When he hit free agency after the 2000 season, it was surprisingly Boston rather than New York that inked him to an eight-year, $160 million megadeal. Ramirez went on to help the Red Sox defeat the Yankees in the 2004 ALCS and win the World Series that year.

It may be too late for Ramirez to play for the Yankees, but they certainly could have used his bat during the ALCS. New York's offense disappeared against Houston. The Yankees managed just four runs in the first three games of the series.

New York will likely look to beef up its lineup during the offseason, but Ramirez probably isn't the help that Brian Cashman is looking for.
