Guess who said that. Go on, guess.
- Joe Buck?
- Dustin Pedroia?
- Hank Steinbrenner?
The correct answer would be the kid who makes videos in what looks like his parents’ attic (given all the lamps and chairs) for his YouTube channel, “megasportstube.” Take a look.
Each to his own, right? I agree that Cano will be The Man and that Jeter will bounce back. But will A-Rod continue his “decline?” Nah. And memo to the kid: CC won’t have to “carry the team.”
Of course, we’ve all expressed the same doubts about the starting rotation. How many of you laughed out loud when it was announced today that Bartolo Colon was getting the ball in the Yankees’ first spring training game? Against the Phillies, no less. Maybe he’ll face Cliffy.
But here’s what I really want to know. Why is it that the 37-year-old Colon, who has been in the majors forever, still needs a translator? He couldn’t muster a few words in English to tell the media he was excited about his first start in pinstripes? I could have figured out how to say it and I don’t speak a word of Spanish.
“I’ m excitó sobre mi primer comienzo en telas a rayas.”
There. Was that so hard, Bart?
