Yankees news: Sterling needs a monument

Vaseline 1 month ago

Daily News from New York | Gary Phillips: Before Saturday’s game against Tampa Bay, New York honored John Sterling, the recently retired Voice of the Yankees, after he declared an end to his storied career. He received a number of gifts on Saturday, but one thing he didn’t get was a plaque in Monument Park…seems like that would have been a tight turnaround. But he certainly has his boosters. Among them are his two most prominent broadcast partners. Both Michael Kay and Suzyn Waldman put forth the idea that Sterling’s phenomenal tenure behind the microphone is worthy of a monument. I would be shocked if the club doesn’t honor Sterling with a monument sooner or later.

New York Post | Mark W. Sanchez: MLB, no one likes your rules. Apparently “The Man” Nasty has informed Nestor Cortes that his pump fake delivery is illegal and that if he takes him out again it will be an automatic ball. Nestor has a few other common tricks in his bag, so while we’ll probably never see the pump fake again, we can rest assured he’ll keep hitters on their toes.

The athletic | Chris Kirschner ($): As spring training came to a close, Juan Soto was unhappy with his swing. He even chose to stay behind when the Yanks headed to Mexico for a few games, choosing to continue working on fixing what ailed him. The early returns are good to say the least, as Soto’s gaudy stats help him excite the Yankee fanbase. The exciting news is that Soto himself thinks he is nowhere near his best yet.

New York Post | Mark W. Sanchez: Austin Wells is in disarray in court. There’s no way to sugarcoat it: The young backstop ended up hitting .091 early Saturday. But the periphery suggests that Wells has been unlucky to some extent. And to Wells’ credit, he has his eyes on the prize, which means he’s determined to continue his approach. “For me, it’s about just going out there and doing that and trusting the process that I’ve built with the coaching staff over the last three, four months,” Wells said. “Good things will come.”
