With the Yankees coming to St Pete this weekend, WFAN’s Sweeny Murti joined the Fabulous Sports Babe to tell us all about the surging Yanks.
Murti talked about the comeback being helped by just how healthy the Yankees have gotten. Between getting back Grandson and A-Rod combined with the acquisition of Alfonso Soriano, The Yankees offense has become potent once again.
The Yankees have won 5 in a row heading into Tampa Bay, and took advantage of playing an absolutely dreadful Toronto team, and playing 11 of 14 at home.
Obviously the big conversation when the Yankees come up is the topic of Alex Rodriguez. Sweeny talked about the entire situation being a train wreck, and he did point out that A-Rod has never given his innocence and does not get the benefit of the doubt, but did mention that off the field that it is a train wreck, but on the field he has been a huge success.
Another offensive weapon at the Yankees disposal is Ichiro who recently picked up his 4,000th career hit. Although he did not accumulate all the hits in the MLB, Sweeny says there is no denying that Ichiro is one of the better hitters in baseball history.
