The YES Network made a fantastic move last off-season, perhaps bigger than any acquisition any MLB team made. The YES Network added former New York Times writer Jack Curry.
Curry is one of the smartest, articulate speakers in sports right now, and the YES Network is using him exactly how he should be used.
Curry writes for the YES Network website, hosts Yankees Access, a fantastic behind the scenes show with different Yankees players each week, and also participates in the show "Yankees Baseball Daily."
Yankees Baseball Daily is a nightly roundtable discussion of the recent happenings in baseball between different baseball analysts.
Regular analysts include Jon Heyman, Mark Feinsand, David Waldstein, Tyler Kepner, Jack Curry, and Willie Randolph. While the first two names may not make some very excited, Waldstein, Kepner, Curry, and Randolph all bring fascinating takes each night they appear.
Randolph should have a future as an analyst, and it would not surprise me if the YES Network hires him.
With Bob Lorenz leading the crew, Yankees Baseball Daily provides insight into possible transactions, and brings information to the table that fans can not hear or read elsewhere. Often former or current major/minor leaguers are interviewed, including Mason Williams, Andrew Bailey, Joe Torre, and more.
If you don't tune into Yankees Baseball Daily each night, you are missing out!
