Around the Empire: Yankees news - 3/26/19

Boone responds to Wade’s comments; It wasn’t all bad in Yankees’ camp this year; Yankees top power rankings; Cherish Ken Singleton; Is Garret Anderson a HOFer if he spends his career in NY? (No)

MLB: Spring Training-Philadelphia Phillies at New York Yankees Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports | Brendan Kuty: Aaron Boone got a chance to respond to the comments Tyler Wade made on Sunday. Wade, after receiving news that he would be demoted to Triple-A, was understandably very upset. Wade was among the team leaders in extra-base hits and played six different positions this Spring.

NY Post | Joel Sherman: The Yankees ran into some bad luck with injuries this spring training, but it wasn’t all bad. Joel Sherman breaks down what went right for the Yankees this past month, such as the ever-present power of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, or the rollicking first-base battle Greg Bird and Luke Voit staged.

CBS Sports | Matt Snyder: CBS put out their MLB power rankings yesterday, and while it’s not the most exciting piece of news, the Yankees did rank in the top spot. It’s a nice little reminder that even after all the injuries and an underwhelming offseason, this is still a great team.

Newsday | Neil Best: Just a quick reminder that 2019 will be Ken Singleton’s last in the booth. After initially planning on calling it a career at the conclusion of last season, Singleton was convinced to come back for one more ride in 2019. He’s only slated to call about 25 games this season, so cherish them while you can. Singleton is one of the best.

Yahoo! Sports | Craig Calcaterra: Over the weekend, Angels’ owner Arte Moreno said that had former Angel Garret Anderson played with the Yankees, then he would be in the Hall of Fame. This is patently false, considering someone like Bernie Williams, a better overall player than Anderson ever was, is not in the Hall of Fame, but I’ll let Calcaterra further explain how absurd Moreno’s claim is.
