A-Rod Calls In To Mike Francesca Show With Yogi Berra Reminiscences
I'm not entirely convinced that Mike Francesca immediately knew that this caller was the real Alex Rodriguez when he first took this call. He introduced "A-Rod" like he was a typical caller's alias ... but OK, maybe he knew all along. The bigger point is that I thought it was a prank caller for the first three minutes of the interview.
A-Rod: "It's hard to comprehend winning ten championships and being a part of I guess, of 13 of them, being a three-time MVP, when you think about Yogi Berra, one of the things that players like myself and other players dream about playing for the New York Yankees is because of Yogi Berra. I mean, he is the Yankees, he is baseball."
I'm still not really sure why A-Rod called in -- he admitted that he wasn't particularly close to Berra, although he interacted with him many times. I suppose that A-Rod just wanted to be on the record at Berra's passing -- establishing himself as sort of the voice of the players.
