EP 113: Meat of the Heart

Greetings greetings to one and all. Another episode of the PahSahp graces your lives with the sweet, soothing sounds of Greg and Kunj. There was plenty to discuss this episode. Gary Sanchez is mired in a miserable slump. That is sad. However, Didi Gregorius has seemingly bounced out of his slump. That is happy. Of course, we also discuss how Masahiro Tanaka will be out for a month. This is sad. Due to this, Jonathan Loaisiga will be making his debut tonight against the Tampa Bay Rays. This is happy. Well, it might be sad. We’ll have to wait until tonight to find out.
Also, we get into the discussion of realignment, the playoff structure, the wild card, and potential pitchers we could acquire during the trade deadline. Oh, and the draft. That also happened. Plus, as always, the Yankee and Mitre of the week.
Good times galore.

EP 112: Juicy Meat

The Pinstripe Alley Podcast returns after a week off. Kunj Shah returns from his vacation and gives us all the details on the meat he ate. All of the meat. After the meat talk, we finally get into to all the good things and bad that have been going on with the New York Yankees. Case in point, Luis Severino has transcended his limitation and transformed into the legendary Super Saiyan. Has Austin Romine done the same? That might be a stretch. And by stretch, I mean that Shah just gave me the dirtiest look for even suggesting it.

Also, we discuss who is currently slumping, like Giancarlo Stanton and Gary Sanchez. Slumping does not describe other players, like my boy Brett Gardner, who is gritty, gutty, and on fire. Plus, as always, the Yankee and Mitre of the Week. Some choices were more difficult than others.

It’s good to be back.

EP 111: Happy Endings

We tend to bring up Robinson Cano a lot on the PahSahp, so it would be wrong of us not to discuss his latest developments. We didn’t really want to, but we’re professionals. Yes, consummate professionals be we. We’re certainly not totally goofballs or anything like that. Nope.

In addition to the sad news about Cano, we talk about the slump of Sir Didi Gregorius, the promotion of Clint Frazier, and the fact that Sonny Gray pitching to Austin Romine does not mean Gray will actually pitch well. Also, it turns out that winning series after series after series after series after series after series after series is actually a sound strategy for winning the division. The Yankees should keep doing exactly that. This is the sound analysis you can always expect on the Pinstripe Alley Podcast.

All this plus the Yankee and Mitre of the Week.

EP 110: Non Si Puo Problemarlo

As of the record of this PahSahp, the Yankees had not lost a single game. Loyal PahSahpees will know that we always like to lead off with the bad. Loyal Yankee fans will know that there was really nothing bad to talk about this week. The Yankees have been playing incredible, inconceivable baseball right now. They had a nine-game winning streak, lost a game to the World Series defending Houston Astros, then went on an eight-game winning streak before that came to an end last night. The worst thing we talk about are the Mets, because oh boy did the Mets pull a peak Metsing.

So what did we even talk about? Well, Neil Walker’s bat is coming alive. Domingo German pitched a gem. Greg Bird is starting his rehab and he should be back up soon. CC Sabathia says that he will probably retire if the Yankees win it all this year. Gleyber Torres looks very comfortable on defense and offense. All that, plus the Yankee and Mitre of the week, even though it wasn’t easy selecting a Mitre. It’s hard to choose a Mitre when the team does not lose.

These Yankees are good and fun.

EP 109: Break My Stride

I wanted to double check this fact just to make sure it was 100% accurate before typing it. What is that fact, you might ask? Since the recording of Episode 107 of the Pinstripe Alley Podcast, which was April 20th, and today’s posting of this week’s episode, the New York Yankees have only lost a total of two games. Two. Games. I think it’s safe to say that the Yankees are playing decent baseball as of late.

Greg and Kunj discuss said decent playing of the baseball. First things first, the injury updates of Jordan Montgomery, Jacoby Ellsbury, Clint Frazier, Jacoby Ellsbury, Greg Bird, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Jacoby Ellsbury. Following that, the better stuff. The bullpen, the starting pitching, Gary Sanchez, Didi Gregorius, Domingo German, and much more. It’s been such a good couple of weeks that it was not an easy task picking a Mitre of the Week. Everything is going well. Here’s hoping it’s still going well when we record Episode 110.

EP 108: Infinity War

Wiggity wiggity what’s up everyone. Another episode of the Pinstripe Alley Podcast coming at you. There were a lot of great topics to discuss on this week’s episode of the PahSahp. There were some bad topics of course, like Sonny Gray. Gray has been not good. Unproductive. Mehtastic, if you will. Thankfully we get him out of the way early to discuss the happier stuff, like Miguel Andujar, Gleyber Torres, Didi Gregorius, Aaron Judge, and the rest of the offense. You know the offense I’m talking about. While the offense is rolling right along, the defense could use a bit of work.

The Yankees are hotter than hot right now and they are fun to talk about. Both Greg and Kunj’s Mitre of the Week were easy to pick. The Yankee of the Week was a bit harder, because there were so many choices. All in all, good times. Please feel free to comment and subscribe to us. We’ll be your friend.

EP 107: Reverse Bananas

It has been quite an opening month for the Yankees that we love. While they are playing over .500, barely, they are not exactly playing the best of baseball. What I mean is that the lead the majors in errors. They might also lead the league in baserunning mistakes, also known as TOOTBLANs. Also, Giancarlo Stanton has gotten off to a slow start, especially at home. It’s not exactly fun to watch. You know what’s fun to watch though? Dingers!

Greg and Kunj discuss the latest news, like the Yankees potentially calling up Gleyber Torres. Gleyber has been hotter than hot, AKA hotHotHOT, in Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. This has led many to think that he won’t be down in the minors for too much longer. Also, as always, the Yankee and Mitre of the Week.

Okay, I won’t lie. We also get into a Robinson Cano and Starlin Castro discussion, because we love torturing ourselves. Yep. Still not okay with it at all.
