The Yankees social media accounts were pretty ruthless to Cleveland on Wednesday night, after beating the Indians to advance to the ALCS.

Isaiah Thomas takes a shot at the Celtics .
The Boston Celtics sure didn’t seem to hesitate when they shipped Isaiah Thomas to Cleveland, even though he was the team’s best player last season.

Don’t think for a second that he didn’t take note of it, though.Thomas took to Instagram on Wednesday and posted this.IT sending a message (via @Isaiah_Thomas) pic.twitter.
