Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 139: The Wild Card-Leading Yankees — Really!
On July 5th, the Yankees trailed the Red Sox by 10.5 games. It's now August 19th, and after six and a half weeks, the Bombers have finally caught 'em and now lead the American League Wild Card race.It's been a little over a week since Andrew and Kunj's last podcast, so they went long on the wacky Royals series, the Field of Dreams Game and far-more-successful sojourn to Chicago, the make-up victory over the Angels, and of course, the sweep of the Red Sox. There have been some frustrating games here and there and the Yankees haven't made it easy, but it's nice to revel in a winning streak! When even Tyler Wade is on an over-.400 run, then you know things are going quite nicely.The show does have injury news to go over, though thankfully, it's more on the side of activations than setbacks. Gerrit Cole, Jordan Montgomery, Gary Sánchez, Anthony Rizzo, and Aroldis Chapman. More reinforcements could be soon to follow, though the co-hosts do send their best wishes out to Clint Frazier and Luis Severino, who now don't seem likely to return. Alas.The "Meet a Baby Bomber" segment stops in with Kyle Holder and Isaiah Pasteur, and Andrew and Kunj wrap up as always with the Yankee and Mitre of the Week.PS: Someone help Kevin Costner with his wardrobe. Kunj is begging. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
