Around the Empire: Yankees News - 4/12/15

Willie Mays gives his opinion on Alex Rodriguez approaching his home run record; Masahiro Tanaka watched the film from his start on Monday and noticed mechanical issues; Yankees have only been in the lead for one out of 55 innings played so far, is it time to panic?

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports | Brendan Kuty: The Yankees are off to a slow start, they lead the league in errors, and Alex Rodriguez is somehow their best hitter, but it's not time to panic yet.

New York Post | Joel Sherman: If you're the doom and gloom type, then the first week's games may signal a season-long trend. The Yankees have only had the lead in one of the 55 innings they've played, and after tonight's game they head out on a 10-game road trip.

NY Daily News | Christian Red: Alex Rodriguez is creeping up on Willie Mays' 660 home runs, and the Yankees are considering fighting A-Rod for the bonus money that he would be owed for tying that number. About the idea of A-Rod tying or passing his record, Mays said he didn't think he had "any feeling at all about it."

New York Post | Fred Kerber: Masahiro Tanaka has looked at the tape from his Opening Day debut, and noticed mechanical issues which he has worked on to prepare for tonight's start. He also met with Joe Girardi to discuss his velocity, but they aren't going to share the details of that meeting.
