Haley Smilow is a lucky baseball fan/writer/reporter. Recently last summer, she was able to interview Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins.
Interviewing MLB Athletes is nothing new for our Junior Reporter. Over the last few years, Haley has interviewed Curtis Granderson, A.J. Pierzynski, Cody Ross, Barry Enright, Justin Turner, Casey Janssen and 2013 NL MVP Andrew McCutchen.
The MLB Reports is very happy with the hard work and dedication Haley puts forth for her interviews. She has a great future in the business!
The MLB’ers like Haley because she doesn’t ask the typical cookie cutter questions. She asks them to delve into their own personal lives, and for this, she is able to crack up these guys from their usual monotonous answers.

The Yankees became the 4th club to be blanked this year yesterday afternoon in Detroit. While some teams have not played their 4th games already. their placement could be higher than 27th. however this was to be expected.
I have no problem with the guys excusing A-Rod with a pass versus the tough right hander in Jordan Zimmermann, but really the club could have started Mark Teixeira at First Base and had Beltran as the DH. Are they really that frail that they can’t even make it through half a week?
At worst, why not rotate who takes the contest off. They better all be in the lineup today against Mike Pelfrey.
It is completely understandable for Joe Girardi to give the veterans the day off, no worries there, but to field a lineup that possessed Dustin Ackley and Aaron Hicks is ridiculous. They should have just thrown CC Sabathia in this match if they were putting out the “B” lineup.
Regardless here – the Yankees are gone from this competition. At least they crossed off another variation in their MLB Runs Scoring Survivor. Read the rest of this entry
