LISTEN: Mike Francesa Says Yankees Are ‘Scary’ Good

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)The Yankees have gone from dangerous to “downright scary,” WFAN’s Mike Francesa said Monday.

The Bronx Bombers have won five straight, outscoring their opponents 55-9 in those games.

In a three-game sweep of the Orioles over the weekend, Aaron Judge homered three more times. He now has an MLB-best 21 homers.

Francesa called the rookie slugger’s performance “otherworldly.”

“It’s like he’s from a different planet right now the way he’s playing,” Francesa said.

Francesa said the Yankees’ season actually took off after losing 5-4 to the Red Sox on Tuesday night. New York responded with 8-0 and 9-1 victories over their archrivals.

Then, the WFAN host said, they embarrassed the Orioles.

“When your starting pitcher pitches two innings and it’s a laugher, that’s embarrassing the other team,” Francesa said. “That’s downright embarrassing the Orioles. And they did. They flat-out embarrassed them. They pounded them into submission.”
