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.

EP 106: There Will Be Beef

As you may or may not know, Kunj and I like to record this podcast on Wednesday nights. Why Wednesday? Why not Wednesday? Anyway, moments before we are about to begin recording, the Yankees and Red Sox clear the benches and get into a brawl. Needless to say, it was pretty easy to decide what topic we would lead off with on this PahSahp episode.

In addition to discussing the brawl, today’s episode of the PahShap takes a look back at how Giancarlo Stanton, Gary Sanchez, Aaron Judge, Sir Didi Gregorius, and some of the other Yankees are doing. We also look at the injuries that have taken place, like Brandon Drury not disclosing his migraine issues over the years. Bad Drury. Bad. Finally, as always, Shah and I give our Yankee and Mitre of the Week.

Seriously though, what are the chances that a fight breaks out right before we record? It’s dumb and oddly fortuitous. So, uh, thanks I guess? Oh, and screw the Red Sox.

EP 105: The Potato Alley Spudcast

We’ve finally made it, ladies and gentlemen. It’s Opening Day. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited. The game isn’t on for a while, so you should pass the time by listening to the one and only Potato Alley Spudcast, in which Greg and Kunj discuss a giant tater tot on a stick and other various, delicious forms of the perfect and palatable potato. That’s it. That’s the entire podcast.

That is not the entire podcast.

Our PahSahpers also discuss the loss of Greg Bird, as well as the much better, non-Chris Carter-y depth they have to keep them afloat at first base. Tyler Wade and Tyler Austin have a chance to shine. They also discuss the new food items at Yankee Stadium this year, as well as answer fan questions and give their Yankee and Mitre of spring training. The hype is absolutely real. Yankee Baseball is back today.
