It’s Sunday once again, and you know what that means — it’s time for our weekly social media roundup!

Asked about the biggest hit of his career, A-Rod broke down his game-winning hit in Game 4 of the 2009 World Series, noting how Johnny Damon’s heads-up play to steal second base took Brad Lidge’s best pitch away from him and allowed him to sit fastball.

The ladies go running

Last Sunday was the New York Marathon, and both Aaron Judge and Anthony Rizzo were in attendance. Don’t fret, though: the two sluggers weren’t running, but supporting their wives who were. Running a marathon is no easy feat — congratulations to the both of them!

Gleyber Torres on YouTube?

Hmm, I’ll be honest, I’m not quite sure what’s going on here. But Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres posted that something is “coming soon,” and the picture included both the YouTube logo and “The Gley Way.” Whatever it is, Everson Pereira and Gio Urshela were in the comments hyping it up, so ... I guess we’ll find out soon enough ...
