Dear Bob Nightengale (and others),
The statement above is not true in any way. The infamous “Bronx Zoo” era of Yankee baseball was a lot more chaotic, there was a lot more infighting and it was nothing like the current state of Yankee baseball.
Are things perfect for the Yankees right now? Not by a long shot but things are not out of control in any way.
As far as you and I know, Alex Rodriguez showed up to camp a couple of days early, hit some balls out of the park, practiced in the field and then signed autographs for fans as he was leaving the complex. At least that’s what every writer’s tweets, pictures and videos showed us this afternoon and evening.
Oh do you mean that the coverage is crazy? Well, this is New York and this is how things happen around here.…
