Bronx Banter Breakdown on the Yanks’ competitors


Over the course of this week, Joe and Mike are previewing the Yanks’ AL East competitors. I got in on the action last week when Alex Belth of Bronx Banter asked me to join him and Cliff Corcoran on his SportsNet NY web-only video series Bronx Banter Breakdown.

In the third and final installment that we recorded on Friday, we discuss the state of the AL East. Cliff thinks the Red Sox are the Majors’ most improved team this winter, but I’m more worried about a looming Tampa team featuring a pair of guys playing for contracts. Check out the video below.

For those who missed the two other installments, the first piece examined the Yankee pitching while the second looked at the team’s offense. Thanks to Alex and Cliff for having me on, and be sure to check out Bronx Banter.

  1. OK, somebody needs to say this. What they hell is it with Cliff where every time they introduce him he does the ‘Austin Powers’ Hello with one eyebrow up, one down and the little head move. STOP THAT!

    Never, ever trust a man who does that. It’s a sign of narcissism and self delusion.

    Red Sox most improved? They’ll win what 2 or 3 more games this season compared to last?

    They changed a lot and improved sure but I still don’t think it’s enough to overtake the Yankees. I agree with being more worried about the Rays. Their pitching is wonderful and they have a pretty solid offense too. Defense is top notch as well.

    Perhaps this year is where it’ll be an actual 3 man race til the very end.

    • This.

      No love for Seattle?

      I know their offense is weak, and some here have gone into a reactionary I’ve-heard-so-much-about-how-improved-Seattle-is-that-I’m going-too-far-the-other-way mode, but I don’t see how the Sox are more improved than the Mariners.

      A better team, Hells-to-the-yes. More improved? I’m not convinced.

    If only Ben concluded with a “Stay classy San Diego.”

    Love the turn towards the camera at the end.
