The Morning Rat Race

HOUSTON, TEXAS - MARCH 28: Juan Soto #22 of the New York Yankees hits an RBI single in the fifth inning against the Houston Astros on Opening Day at Minute Maid Park on March 28, 2024 in Houston, Texas.

Good morning, Sports fans! Davey Mac here with a plus-sized Sports Report for ya!  The first weekend of Major League Baseball came and went…how did the local teams do? The Final Four is set in college basketball!  NBA and NHL updates!  And a Kansas City Chiefs player could be in hot water with the authorities!  But first…

…Can we retire Juan Soto’s Number 22 and give him a plaque in Yankee Stadium already? My Lord…this guys is AWESOME. And that’s because the Yankees swept the Houston Astros in their opening series with yesterday’s win…Yankees 4, Astros 3…and Juan Soto was amazing. Soto picked up three more hits and drove in the tie-breaking and ultimate game-winning run in the 9th inning.
