Sweeny Murti

sweeny Sweeny MurtiLike a few before him, Sweeny Murti has worked his way up the roster at WFAN…from intern in 1991, to being hired in 1993, to Yankees beat reporter today.

While an undergrad at Penn State, Murti interned at the FAN. After earning a degree in Communications, Sweeny was rehired by WFAN in 1993 where he worked as a producer. Then, after a one year stint at WIP in Philadelphia, Sweeny returned to WFAN as a 20-20 sports anchor in 1998. He became WFAN’s Yankees beat reporter in 2001.

In addition to his duties at WFAN, Murti has worked for the Yes Network, WCBS-TV Channel 2 New York and WIP Sportsradio in Philadelphia. He also traveled to Atlanta in 1996 and Sydney in 2000 to cover the Summer Olympics for Westwood One Radio.

Sweeny Says: Big Start For Yankees’ A.J. Burnett

Could it be A.J. Burnett’s last turn in the Yankees’ rotation? What happens if he doesn’t pitch well? What happens if he DOES pitch well?

Sweeny Says: Yankees’ Jorge Posada Hits The Big 4-0

Jorge Posada turns 40 years old today. It’s not his best season — he’s had some highs and he’s had some lows. But it’s almost certainly his last season as a Yankee.

Sweeny Says: Assessing The Yankees Inactivity At The Trading Deadline

As good as Jimenez has been, he is not being traded at the same level that Johan Santana and CC Sabathia were a few years ago. Remember—the Yankees twice traded for Javier Vazquez off the best year of his career, and he didn’t become what they had hoped either time.

Sweeny Says: Dick Groch, The Scout Who Signed Derek Jeter

When the Yankees held the 6th overall pick in the 1992 draft, they picked shortstop Derek Jeter from Kalamazoo, Michigan. The rest, as they say, is history.

Sweeny Says: Is A-Rod Overrated?

Alex Rodriguez is the player other major leaguers think is the most overrated? Makes me wonder why we bother asking them anything at all sometimes.

CC-Colon

Sweeny Says: Seeing A Simulated Yankees Game

So this is what a simulated game looks like. CC Sabathia and Bartolo Colon both threw to minor league hitters at Steinbrenner Field, a 10am start time, game over in barely over an hour.

Sweeny Says: Derek Disillusioned

Every marriage has a few bumps in the road, a few arguments that turn a little more heated than you hoped they would. Welcome to Derek Jeter and the Yankees, married since 1992.
