    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 123: Please Refrain From Being Garbage

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 123: Please Refrain From Being Garbage

    There's no easy to say this: Andrew and Kunj have had dentist appointments more enjoyable than the past week of Yankees baseball. The team is winless since our last recording, having dropped five in a row while suffering an embarrassing home sweep at the hands of the Rays.
    Andrew and Kunj gradually run through everything going wrong with the team, from the offense (in a nightmarish slump) to the pitching staff (lackluster outside of Gerrit Cole and a couple relievers) and defense (dismal fundamentals and poor play). As they note, a portion of the Yankees' struggles will likely remedy themselves soon, but some are flawed by design. That's concerning.
    They also discussed the unfortunate Friday incident where fans threw balls onto the field and Jay Bruce's unceremonious-but-necessary retirement. Yankees fans will always remember you, Jay. (Until they don't.)

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 122: The Gerrit Cole Show (feat. The Yankees)

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 122: The Gerrit Cole Show (feat. The Yankees)

    Andrew and Kunj discuss the three different kinds of Gerrit Cole starts so far — tough-luck loss, overpowering win, and grind-it-out win — while also bringing up the value of his good rapport with backup catcher Kyle Higashioka. It’s clear that Higgy should receive the lion’s share of Cole starts over Gary Sánchez, but they still think it’s important for Sánchez to at least occasionally catch him.
    As for the offense? The Higashioka homers were nice, as was the 10th-inning rally on Sunday, but it still has to do better. They were dominated by the Rays’ bullpen and have been hitting into far too many double plays. They're not panicking about whether or not this offense is actually good because the talent is there, but it can easily improve. Minimizing Jay Bruce is part of that.
    They also briefly touched on Tyler Wade and Domingo Germán’s demotions, the tone-deaf Mushnick comments on Sánchez using an interpreter, and Aaron Hicks taking a deserved mental health day in memory of Daunte Wright.

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 121: Opening Week Pitching Spotlight

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 121: Opening Week Pitching Spotlight

    Opening Day has come and gone, and the Bronx Bombers have begun the season led by the half of their team that was supposed to be more of a question mark — their pitching staff. Although an up-and-down offense has allowed them to drop two games early on, the men on the mound have permitted just 11 runs in 5 games. Not too shabby.
    This podcast was recorded prior to Gerrit Cole’s dominant start against Baltimore on Tuesday night, but thanks to his Opening Day outing and other strong efforts from Jordan Montgomery and the middle relievers, there was still plenty of pitching to chat about. Clint Frazier and Gary Sánchez’s hot starts were also points of discussion, as were home run heroics from Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge. The rest of the hitters could stand to wake up a bit, though.
    Later, we talked about how Yankee Stadium fans should really cut down on the booing, the alternate site in Scranton starting up again, mid-’80s reliever Mike Armstrong (please view his glorious picture), and Rougned Odor for a hot second because the surprise trade broke minutes prior to recording. Naturally, we ended with the Yankee and Mitre of the Week. As Kunj alluded, it’s good to have baseball back (and to watch a giant lizard fight a giant ape).

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 120: Drafting Our Favorite 2021 Storylines

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 120: Drafting Our Favorite 2021 Storylines

    It’s Opening Day Eve and well past time for another podcast! The Yankees will begin their 2021 season tomorrow afternoon against the Blue Jays, and we’re ready to see some regular season baseball again.
    Andrew and Kunj caught up on the latest spring training news, focusing on the unfortunate Luke Voit injury that has led us to “Opening Day first baseman Jay Bruce,” as well as the the pitching situation getting mostly settled with Justin Wilson landing on the injured list and Domingo Germán winning the last rotation spot over Deivi García. Of course, we still anticipate seeing plenty of García in 2021.
    After the quick news rundown, Andrew and Kunj did a draft with a very simple premise: “Things We’re Excited About From the 2021 Yankees.” It’s exactly what you think it is, and it was a lot of fun! (Even if Andrew accidentally cheated a bit.) As always, we wrapped up with the Yankee and Mitre of the Week. Also, reserve catcher Max McDowell ended up being mentioned at least five times in this show. It was quite the thing.

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 119: Lucas Luetge? Lucas Luetge.

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 119: Lucas Luetge? Lucas Luetge.

    As the spring training schedule is now past the halfway point, it’s time for a new podcast episode with Andrew and Kunj to discuss the various goings-on. Setup man Zack Britton has unfortunately hit the injury shelf, and that loss is the first topic of discussion. The Yankees will miss his steady presence in the bullpen.
    Fortunately, manager Aaron Boone (back and healthy after last episode’s scare) has a surprising new lefty perhaps ready to nab an open spot: Lucas Luetge, who has not pitched in the majors since 2015 and is almost 34. The fifth starter battle is also heating up with Domingo Germán and Deivi García, so we discussed how the Yankees might approach that roster decision.
    Later on, we also talked about Jay Bruce staking his claim to a roster spot, how that throws Mike Tauchman and Tyler Wade into some peril. We then wrap up with some more injury talk, namely to the beleaguered Miguel Andújar and Robinson Chirinos (and Kyle Higashioka, to a lesser extent).

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 118: Gardy Returns, Exhibitions Begin

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 118: Gardy Returns, Exhibitions Begin

    Now that the Grapefruit League has begun, there is actually some vaguely real baseball to watch! Fully aware of the goofiness of the extremely small number of games, Andrew and Kunj talk about what they've liked so far from Gary Sánchez and Jameson Taillon, why Tom was correct on Gerrit Cole working with Sánchez, Clarke Schmidt's elbow strain, and hit-by-pitch maverick Derek Dietrich popping up as a non-roster invitee.
    Brett Gardner also re-signed in the time since the last recording, so he is discussed in addition to their shared frustration about non-televised spring training games. The news of Aaron Boone's heart scare broke in the middle of this episode, so he is briefly mentioned as well. Our thoughts are with him as he recovers.
    Note: This episode was recorded before Corey Kluber's start on Wednesday; otherwise, he probably would've shared Yankee of the Week honors with Taillon.
