    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 155: Bringer of Duff

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 155: Bringer of Duff

    In an early recording for this week's episode, Andrew and Kunj discuss noodles in DC, Hillary Duff, and the Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Okay, we're just kidding (though each gets a weird passing mention), as this is a Yankees podcast and the good ol' Bombers have remained hot!
    The Yankees took three out of four on the South Side of Chicago and won the first game in Baltimore on Monday night. The homering ways have continued, and Josh Donaldson in particular looks sharp. He's homered three times in the past five games, bringing some serious extra-base pop that -- despite decent numbers through the beginning of May -- had been lacking until recently. Joey Gallo has picked up the pace of late as well, and the one-two punch of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton is still as menacing as ever.
    All these topics are in store, plus Nestor Cortes (yay!), Luis Severino (solid!), Jonathan Loáisiga (ehhhh), a familiar B-Ref leaderboard update, and the traditional Yankee and Manfred of the Week.

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 154: Who’s the Daddy Now?

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 154: Who’s the Daddy Now?

    The positive vibes remain in the Bronx, as while the 11-game winning streak came to a close last week and a ton of rain forced the Yankees into a stretch of 23 games in 22 days, they’re still playing quite a bit of good baseball.
    Andrew and Kunj talked about that odd Mother’s Day doubleheader and the series win clinch over the Rangers on Monday, and of course they discussed the Yankees’ two wins over the Blue Jays in the past two days (including Aaron Judge’s walk-off heroics), giving them seven consecutive series victories. That will play!
    There’s all that, some raving about Clay Holmes entering god mode, Luis Severino showing moxie, a B-Ref leaderboard update, and our Yankee & Manfred of the Week. Also, the co-hosts got a little loopy at the end talking about Aaron Hicks & Gleyber Torres having kids. Hooray for daddy power (on the latter, anyway).

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 153: Winning Streak Highlights

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 153: Winning Streak Highlights

    The Yankees' 11-game winning streak came to a close on Wednesday night in Toronto, but what a run it was! Andrew and Kunj discussed the first six wins of that stretch last week, and this time, they chat about the latter half, which included a third straight sweep in Kansas City and impressive back-to-back wins in Toronto. The Jays had been playing .694 ball at Rogers Centre since they returned there last July, so that is some dang good baseball.
    Aaron Judge has been especially hot (crushing about 437 homers in the past week), Gleyber Torres stole the show against the Blue Jays on Monday, and the pitching staff has been nothing short of spectacular. Led by Michael King in God Mode, the bullpen just doesn't allow runs anymore, and there have been great starts from the likes of Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon to discuss. The staff held the hard-hitting Jays to just five runs in three games. That's how you do it. Also, in the time since the last podcast, Joey Gallo got hurt, but is already back! Hooray.
    All this, a B-Ref leaderboard update, a busy May schedule preview, some accidental Reds & Mets Talk, and Yankee/Manfred of the Week are all in store! Enjoy the show, and let's hope that the Yankees remember to not drain all the fun of that winning streak by going on a 2021-esque "bucket of water" follow-up.

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 152: A win-win-win-win-win-win scenario

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 152: A win-win-win-win-win-win scenario

    It's been a good week to be a Yankees fan. The Bombers put up a perfect 6-0 homestand, sweeping the Guardians and Orioles back-to-back after winning two out of three in Detroit, and they head into a three-game set tonight in Kansas City on a six-game winning streak!
    Andrew and Kunj have quite a few positives to discuss, from the MLB home run leader Anthony Rizzo (!) to recent mini-resurgences from Joey Gallo and Gleyber Torres, as well. Giancarlo Stanton got No. 350, Aaron Judge homered on his birthday (and again two days later), and Isiah Kiner-Falefa seems to have hit his stride at shortstop. Behind Nestor Cortes, Gerrit Cole, and the bullpen dominance of Michael King & company, the pitching has had quite a few highlights, too. Smiles all around!
    The co-hosts get into all these topics, the B-Ref Leaderboard Update, and our Yankee & Manfred of the Week. Now, for the Yankees to keep these good vibes going on their road trip through Kansas City and Toronto...

    PSA Twittercast Ep. 3: Nestor is the Real Deal

    PSA Twittercast Ep. 3: Nestor is the Real Deal

    In case you missed it, Josh Diemert hosted a Twitter Space with Peter Brody and Sam Chapman over the weekend. This recording was completed shortly after the Yankees' bonkers Saturday win over Cleveland and its strange conclusion. Topics go beyond that game though! They also talked about Nestor Cortes' underrated true stuff (he's not just a crafty lefty), better looks from the offense, why Chad Green makes them uneasy, and how baseball will celebrate future milestones since traditional ones like the 3,000-hit plateau just reached by Miguel Cabrera will become even more elusive.

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 151: Cy Nestor > Cy Cole

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 151: Cy Nestor > Cy Cole

    The first month of the 2022 Yankees season is rolling along and two storylines have immediately jumped to the forefront in the early goings. On the positive side, the pitching looks outstanding. Gerrit Cole is in a weird funk, but other than the nominal ace, the men on the mound are pretty much all rolling, especially the ever-delightful Nestor Cortes (and the bullpen, for that matter). In fact, they're allowing an MLB-best 2.8 runs per game.
    So on the back of that remarkable pitching, the Yankees must be rolling, right? Well unfortunately, the offense has not backed them up and they're almost fully on the other side of the leaderboard in that regard. An ugly series loss in Baltimore capped frustrations before a slightly better showing in Detroit. We're not demanding to see the 2019 Yankees offense out there, but a step up is sorely needed because the pressure can't be on the pitching forever.
    Yankees topics this week include the highs of the pitching staff and DJ LeMahieu, and the inconsistency of nearly every other hitter aside from Aaron Hicks -- particularly Gleyber Torres and Joey Gallo. There's also some poking fun at Cole, an far-too-early peak at the Baseball Reference WAR leaderboard, the Yankees' upcoming schedule, and our Yankee & Manfred of the Week.
