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.

Ep 104: LSDidi

Tyler Wade has earned his place on the Yankees’ roster. Miguel Andujar will be starting the season at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Greg can’t remember if the Red Sox really did much to improve other than JD Martinez. Alex Cobb signs with the Orioles. Aaron Judge still punishes O’s pitching. Shah and I also discuss our issues with MLB doing what they can to make it legal to skirt federal labor laws in regards to paying minor league players a livable wage. Yay.

Also, Greg bring you a spoiler on his crazy pick for the Pinstripe Alley Pre-Season Prediction post, which will be up eventually. Good times are in store.

Ep 103: Hoch if you got 'em

The Yankees signed Neil Walker. They also traded for Giancarlo Stanton, which is pretty neat. Join Greg and Kunj as they discuss the new signing and what that means for the second base competition.

Also in the episode of the newly christened PSAP (pronounced Pah-sahp), managing editor Tyler Norton joins us to talk with special guest Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. The two of them discuss Hoch’s recently released book, The Baby Bombers: The Inside Story of the Next Yankees Dynasty. Hoch goes into a bit of detail regarding how the book came together, not to mention letting us know that Hal Steinbrenner and others in the front office do indeed check the fan blogs. Also learn which Hoch prefers, pancakes or waffles. You know, the important stuff.

Ep 102: Return of the Mack

For our first podcast of the year, we welcome new host Kunj Shah. Kunj brings with him years of link dump knowledge and absolutely zero podcasting experience whatsoever. Some might call him the Aaron Boone of the Pinstripe Alley Podcast. Others might call him the non-Mearns. The important thing to remember is that Giancarlo Stanton now plays for the New York Yankees.

In this week’s episode, Kunj and I discuss the Yankees’ offseason, the various competitions going on for the infield and CF, Giancarlo and Judge, Gary, and cookies.

Ep. 101: A Festivus Farewell

You knew we weren't going to miss the Festivus tradition. The PSA Podcast returns with Greg, Caitlin, special guest Andrew, and most importantly, the departing Tanya, as they find that the Yankees' incredible 2017 season offered wayyy more feats of strength than the kinds of grievances aired in years past (we don't miss you, Stephen Drew). Oh, and the Yankees traded for freaking Giancarlo Stanton. That was also a thing.

All hail Judge, the biggest beefy baseball boy.
