New York Yankees
Craig decided he wants the entire morning show staff checked, going on to predict that based on his escalated age, Boomer’s level would be the lowest.
Those who care might take this as a good sign, assuming Rodriguez is just itching to get back out there, but word is Yanks brass aren’t thinking in that manner.
Alex Rodriguez reported to the New York Yankees three days ahead of schedule. He spoke for 8 1/2 minutes about his season-long drug suspension.
The Yankees were among the teams with serious interest in Moncada, 19, who is set to become one of baseball’s top infield prospects.
“It’s absolutely good,” Tanaka said through a translator. “I think the No. 1 thing is throwing it a little bit harder than last time.”
Maier was a 12-year-old fan in the right-field stands on Oct. 9, 1996, when he reached over the outfield fence at Yankee Stadium and got his glove on Derek Jeter’s eighth-inning drive.
A large man with a “bum knee,” as the 305-pound lefty called it, can’t help but run into trouble down the line. It is almost inevitable.

New York Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka said Friday his elbow injury from last season is behind him and expects to pitch this year problem free.

Boomer and Craig got this party started discussing the sad state of the activities on the hardwood after Melo undergoes surgery before turning their collective attention to the Yankees.
Masahiro Tanaka threw 21 pitches in his first bullpen session of the year at the New York Yankees’ minor league complex.
This isn’t just about A-Rod or the public’s contempt for him. This is a treatise on the fall of two empires — A-Rod the man and brand, and the Yankees.
