Podcast: Erik Boland

Mark Teixeira and Jacoby Ellsbury

The offseason has nearly come to an end, and on Monday, the 2016 season will start the same way 2015 ended with Masahiro Tanaka and Dallas Keuchel meeting in the Bronx in a rematch of the wild-card game. After six months, Yankees baseball is back!

Erik Boland, the Yankees beat writer for Newsday, joined me to talk about the Yankees entering Opening Day, the so-called “competition” for the No. 5 starter, the sudden bullpen problems, the needed rebound years from Jacoby Ellsbury, Brett Gardner and Chase Headley and which Yankee will get the first “Ladies and gentlemen” tweet of the season.
