It’s looking pretty good that Brian Cashman will return to the GM role for the Yankees. Is that a good thing? Yes. Yes, it most certainly is. Trades within trades.
The Ringer | Katie Baker: We talk a lot about how fantastic a baseball analyst Alex Rodriguez is. Well, we’re gonna talk about it again. Alex Rodriguez is an incredible baseball analyst. This article goes into many reasons why he’s perfect for the role. Adding David Ortiz to the roster has only helped transformed the pre-game & post-game shows into must watch TV. It has also helped to redeem the former controversial superstar to a lot of people. This is an excellent article. Rods within rods.
