Episode 273: Yankees Sweep Philly, Ryan LaMarre Plays Hero Ball + Greg Allen Continues To Be a Force
The Yankees somehow won both games against the Phillies and head to Boston with some out of nowhere momentum. Ryan LaMarre was the hero Wednesday night with his walk off hit in the 10th. Someone named Asher started the game for the Yankees. We wonder why Nick Nelson is still on this roster. Hoy Park was sent down without getting any sort of chance. Rougned Odor continues to come up with huge hits. Chapman’s nail continues to be a giant issue, but he’s pitching better lately at least. Greg Allen is a force in this lineup. Boone continues to make no sense with his handling of Chad Green. We also break down how we’d handle the Joker showing up mid-game and running down the aisle of seats. All that and more on today’s pod.

Episode 272: The AAA Yankees Are World Beaters?
The Yankees took 2 of 3 against the Red Sox this weekend with guys like Trey Amburgey, Chris Gittens, Hoy Park, Timmy Locastro, and Greg Allen running the show. They brought speed, heart, and a knowledge of what to do in a baseball game and it was awesome. Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon were very good over the weekend as well which helped. Rougned Odor is everywhere and we're all about it. Tommy goes on to make an outrageous prediction. A fan threw a ball at Alex Verdugo on Saturday and we rip him for doing so. A-Rod doesn’t know where Joey Gallo would play on this team full of AAA guys. Jasson Dominguez doesn’t know how to slide and that needs to change fast. Tommy is confusing people in elevators. We also talk Ugandan Olympics somehow. All that and more on today’s show.

Episode 271: One Last Run At Positivity: 2nd Half Preview + Jasson Dominguez Discussion
As we put Sunday's horrific loss behind us, we look ahead towards the Yankees' upcoming homestand against the Red Sox and Phillies (with varying levels of optimism). We discuss the Home Run Derby and All-Star Game, as well as give our predictions for when Jasson Dominguez will have his first game in pinstripes. We also give a midseason update on our prop bets from the beginning of the season and see who is currently in the lead. And Tommy rants about elevators and plagiarism. Welcome to the second half.

Episode 270: All-Time Nightmare Loss in Houston Ruins a Great Weekend
The Yankees had their REAL worst loss of the season on Sunday in Houston, blowing a 7-2 lead in the ninth capped off by a walk-off HR from, you guessed it, Jose Altuve. The way this team manages to find new and creative ways to crush our spirits is truly evil. All the positive vibes from Nestor's solid start on Friday and a complete-game shutout from Gerrit Cole on Saturday, gone. Everything sucks. See you all in the second half.

Episode 269: Subway Series Disaster, No More Chapman
The Yankees lost their subway series to the Mets at the stadium this week. Aroldis Chapman might be the worst pitcher in baseball right now but Boone continues to use him as the closer in an act of sabotage. The Yankees manager’s excuse for pulling Chad Green on Sunday was embarrassing. Gerrit Cole continues to suck in the post sticky substance era and we voice our concerns. Cole also gave another terrible answer in a presser and we think he needs some extreme PR 101 lessons. Who is the new closer of this team? Nestor needs a bigger role. Who do you keep in a rebuild? All this and more on today’s show.

Episode 268: Murphy's Law - Yankees Suffer Maybe Their Worst Regular Season Loss Ever
The Yankees managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory against the Angels, suffering one of the worst regular season losses in a long time. Aaron Boone also decided to sit both Judge and Gio in a crucial game against Ohtani because that's just what smart managers do. Nothing can go right for this team.
