The best podcast for the best franchise in sports. Hosts Hubbs and Tommy Smokes are two lifelong Yankees fans who eat, sleep, and breathe Yankee baseball. Airing Mondays and Thursdays during the regular season and weekly in the off-season, the show covers both major and outside-the-box stories from Yankees Universe as we all chase World Series championship number 28
Episode 263: Tired of Being Sad, Sad of Being Tired - Yankees Swept By Phillies
The Yankees continued their misery of a season by getting swept in Philly over the weekend. Is Jamo a reliever for this team? Sevy might be dead. Boone got pissed off by a Bryan Hoch question. Giancarlo didn’t play the outfield this weekend because the Yankees don’t care about the regular season. Hubbs has a theory about sleep and Trevor Bauer stinks. Plus Tommy now has a dog and is a grill master?

Episode 262: Gerrit Cole Shuts Up Donaldson, Thank God For The Twins
With tons of scrutiny and controversy surrounding our ace, angry Gerrit Cole showed up in Minnesota and shut up Josh Donaldson. Cole threw the hardest he’s ever thrown in his career as he answered the bell and helped the Yanks get another win in Minnesota. The bats are cooking and it’s refreshing to watch. The guys discuss how Andujar needs to play everyday and how Gary needs more playing time given how hot he currently is. Yankee Stadium is finally increasing their capacity almost back to full strength and we’re ecstatic. Pete Alonso has a wild conspiracy about the jucied/deaded baseballs and we debate how many people have seen the movie The Wizard of Oz.

Episode 261: Aaron Boone Thinks Hitting Into Double Plays is a Good Thing - Yankees Swept At Home By The Red Sox
Rock bottom reached a new low as the Yankees were swept by the Red Sox at home this weekend. Boone refused to get ejected Sunday Night despite the Yankees suffering from one of the worst strike 3 call you’ll ever see that sent the game into extras. Phil Nevin and Marcus Thames lost their minds, but our manager did nothing as usual. Boone also believes hitting into double plays is a thing a good team does. That’s a real quote. DJ LeMahieu’s struggles continue to mount. No one can hit besides Judge really and Gleyber in the clutch. Stanton sat on Sunday after Boone promised he would play the entire series. Jamo was pretty good on Saturday but fell victim to no run support. Hubbs rants about the Altuve chants at the stadium. Luis Severino made a rehab start and was pretty good! All that and more on this therapeutic episode of The Short Porch.

Episode 260: Series Split With The Rays, Clint & Miggy Coming Alive
After Monday’s 4th straight loss the Yankees woke up and managed to split their 4 game series with the Rays. Clint Frazier and Miguel Andujar are really starting to hit. Montgomery turned in another good start. Of course the base running issues continue to make us wanna lose our minds and that falls on Boone. Aaron Judge played CF, we talk about how much that worries us. The Mets have gone to 90% fully vaccinated sections while the Yankees do nothing as the Red Sox come to town. Boone got ejected but it was horrible timing. Nick Nelson shouldn’t be in the big leagues. Gardner kinda stuck it to Hubbs but still sucks. Oh and Hubbs almost made Tommy orgasm with a stat that will blow your mind.

Episode 259: Memorial Day Weekend Ruined - The Yankees Were Swept By The Last Place Tigers And Lost Some More To The Rays
The Yankees were swept by the Tigers. Not even sure how that’s possible. They’ve scored 3 runs or less in 30 games this year which has only been done by the Pirates. Everything is bad and Boone gives us the same crap again. No one hits. No one has life. We’re all sad.

Episode 258: Kluber and Voit Out Months, What the Hell Happened?
Fresh off his no-hitter, Corey Kluber is headed to the IL for months. Luke Voit follows him after straining his oblique. At least the Knicks won a playoff game so we start the show with that. Otherwise we’re trying to spin zone the injuries. Get ready for a lot of Mike King, Deivi, Ford, Andujar, and maybe Gittens. Clint is showing signs of life which would be helpful and Stanton is ready to come off the IL on Friday. The injuries have arrived, let’s buckle up. Also, what is Tommy’s night out like these days and how does he plan to attack this summer.
