Podcast: Erik Boland

We are almost there. Baseball is almost back. The Yankees are almost back. After a disappointing 2013 season, a miserable October when it comes to baseball, a cold winter and now cold spring, Opening Day is long overdue. The Yankees certainly have their questions and concerns and unknowns this season, but after last year’s Murphy’s Law season, it can only go up from an 85-77 finish and a postseason-less fall.

Erik Boland, the Yankees beat writer for Newsday, joined me to talk about the feeling around the Yankees with Derek Jeter’s last Opening Day approaching, whether the new and slim CC Sabathia can be trusted and how excited everyone should be for Michael Pineda to finally be healthy.
