The Bronx Pinstripes Show #221
The Yankees swept the Rays in their home opening series. We discuss Didi stealing the spotlight, his evolution as a hitter, why him batting in the middle of the order is a good thing, The Big Three — Judge, Stanton, and Sanchez — all smashing home runs, Stanton getting booed, Boone’s use of Holder, Montgomery’s start to his sophomore season, the Yankee Stadium protective netting, and we preview keys to the Baltimore series.
Bryan Hoch, Yankees reporter for MLB.com, joined us to talk about a busy opening week, Boone being criticized already, Didi’s big night and leadership in the clubhouse, Stanton dealing with the NY media, and Greg Bird’s injury history. Also check out Bryan’s book ‘The Baby Bombers’ and keep an eye out for a book giveaway on the Bronx Pinstripes Twitter/Instagram.
