Podcast: Erik Boland

We are a month away from pitchers and catchers reporting to Tampa and right now the Yankees don’t really know who exactly will be reporting. The starting rotation still has some holes to fill and hopefully one of those holes will be filled by Masahiro Tanaka who has narrowed his field down to three teams, which includes the Yankees.

And when it comes to spring training, the other big question is whether or not Alex Rodriguez will show up. After being suspended for all of 2014, A-Rod gave an unusual speech saying basically that Major League Baseball is doing him a favor by giving him a year to rest mentally and physically.

Erik Boland, the Yankees beat writer for Newsday, joined me to talk about the Tanaka sweepstakes and what the Yankees will do if they don’t land him, what A-Rod’s next move is and if A-Rod will ever play for the Yankees or in Major League Baseball ever again.
