The Yankees are the hottest team in baseball. No, really. After a 9-17 start to the season, the Yankees are 12-5 over their last 17 games and are riding a five-game winning streak as they return home for three games before heading back on the road for 10. The season and summer has been saved for the time being.
Andrew Rotondi of Bronx Pinstripes joined me to talk about the Yankees’ recent hot run, Hal Steinbrenner’s public comments, Joe Girardi’s management at the back end of the bullpen, if the Yankees will ever give Rob Refsnyder a chance, the problem with the Yankees having two designated hitters and how Michael Pineda has become A.J. Burnett.
