Former New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez was quick to go back on his earlier thoughts on Thursday that the Yankees were going to beat the Indians in five games in the ALDS, and after the 4-0 shutout of his former team now seems to be singing a new tune.
The controversial slugger on Fox Sports following the Indians shutout win praised the Indians, saying that they are the ‘class of baseball,’ as they can ‘do it all.’
“The reason why the Cleveland Indians are the class of baseball, they showed it tonight,” Rodriguez said. “They can show you 4-5 different ways, with power they’re the best team at going first to third, they’re the best defensive team, they have the best bullpen, they can do it all.
“Not only do the Yankees have their work cut out for them, everybody has their work cut out for them.”
