    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 147: Electric Boonegaloo

    It's been a couple weeks at this point, but the Yankees' 2021 season is over. It lasted just one game longer than the rest of the American League playoff field, as the Red Sox clobbered them in the Wild Card Game at Fenway Park. It was a bummer, but of course not all that surprising given how the year had progressed.
    Kunj and Andrew didn't return to just talk about the Wild Card loss, though. The big news from yesterday was that Aaron Boone would be returning to the Yankees' managerial helm in 2022 on a new three-year contract, albeit without his hitting coaches and Phil Nevin. Regardless of how frustrating the Yankees looked in 2021, this always appeared to be the most likely conclusion. Hal Steinbrenner and Brian Cashman seemed too fond of Boone to let him go.
    The hosts work through their thoughts on the non-move & coaching updates, roll eyes at some of Steinbrenner and Cashman's comments, discuss the injury updates (Aaron Hicks comeback szn?), and muse on some of the front office concerns. It does sound like the Yankees will be pursuing a shortstop in free agency, and though the field isn't great, Gary Sánchez's days behind the plate might be numbered. Finally, we wrap things up with a salute to the retiring announcer Ken Singleton and our Yankees & Mitres of the Season.

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 146: Wild Card Showdown in Beantown

    The Yankees did not make it easy. Oh sure, they looked like they might wrap up a Wild Card spot in due time after taking five of six on the road from the division rival Red Sox and Blue Jays. Then, they ran into the Tampa Bay buzzsaw and narrowly avoided a tiebreaker by winning, 1-0, on the season's final day -- thanks in no small part to the pitching staff and Aaron Judge's timely infield single. Now, they'll head right back to Boston for one more game at Fenway Park.
    With Kunj away, Matt Provenzano filled in again and joined Andrew to both look back on the hectic final week and preview the Wild Card showdown. Gerrit Cole will stare down the Red Sox as the Yankees' offense does its best to mimic its most recent performance against Nathan Eovaldi (and not the previous domination). Will Cole's hamstring cause problems again? Will the offense show up after a tough final series while also being down DJ LeMahieu and Luke Voit?
    If there's anything that the 2021 Yankees have proved to be true, it's that anything can happen. All we can do is roll the dice and hope that the season's still alive on Thursday at Tropicana Field. (Oh, and we can also do the Yankee & Mitre of the Week. As always.)

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 145: Big G and the Frantic Finish

    Leave it to the Yankees to wring every last bit of drama out of this wayward 2021 season. A week after looking so uninspiring against Baltimore and Cleveland that Andrew and Kunj were close to writing them off, they’ve roped 'em back in with consecutive sweeps of the Rangers at home (yawn) and the Red Sox at Fenway (wait, what?). Giancarlo Stanton went berserk in Boston and suddenly, the Yankees are in the driver’s seat of the AL Wild Card race.
    Of course, for as good as the offense and bullpen look right now, this final week won’t be easy. New York faces a tougher schedule than its Wild Card foes and will be tested by the Blue Jays and Rays as 2021 draws to a close. The days ahead are still daunting, but at least the Fenway sweep made the outlook brighter.
    Other topics beyond the zany pennant race include Gleyber Torres’ resurgence, Jameson Taillon and Jonathan Loáisiga’s pending returns, Aaron Judge’s gross pinky dislocation, and Luis Severino just bringing a damn smile to the co-hosts' faces. There’s all that and as always, the Yankee and Mitre of the Week.

    Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 144: More Missed Opportunities

    Last week, when we saw that the Yankees had Baltimore on Cleveland on deck, we said that with tougher opponents awaiting them at the end of 2021, the Bombers had to capitalize. Instead, they blew a golden opportunity to sweep the O's (dropping their eighth game of the season to the 102-loss team) and got pummeled by Cleveland at home on back-to-back afternoons.
    Yeah, this isn't going to be a very happy podcast. There's much to grumble about! The offense again made several pitchers look a lot better than they were, the defense was sloppy, and the pitching absolutely melted down over the weekend. This kind of play at this point in the season against these teams is unacceptable, and there are only so many ways that we can say that. It's an indictment on both Aaron Boone and Brian Cashman as well.
    Other topics include the majesty of Néstor Cortes Jr., the Wild Card competition, Luis Severino's return, Miguel Andújar's sudden appearance in Triple-A, and, of course, the Yankee and Mitre of the Week.

Needs to be more refreshing

You guys iterate a lot of the news that circulates through the Yankees universe but everyone beats you guys to it. You guys don’t add much new input to the subjects so I think maybe you should consider finding another angle to bring value to your pod

An Excellent Digest for Yankees Fans

The beauty of this podcast is that it goes beyond just the highlight reel. That information is everywhere. Here, though, you find insight into all levels of the Yankees organization, even Single-A ball. It tracks and features interviews with younger or rehabbing players as they are called up or go back down. There are insights into and likely implications of current Yankees news. I find this and its companion website to be extremely comprehensive and informative. GO YANKEES !
