Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 141: Never Trust the West Coast

We were fooled. We thought that maybe -- just to mix things up -- the Yankees would have a good West Coast trip. They even started strong, extending their winning streak in 60 years to 13 games with back-to-back victories in Oakland. Then ... they looked completely lost for four days in a row against the A's and Angels. Oof.Andrew and Kunj try to strike the balance between optimism & realism about the Yankees' most recent stretch (recorded prior to Gerrit Cole's dominance last night), while looking in on some of what went wrong. Corey Kluber's still working out the kinks, Jameson Taillon might be fatigued, and Gio Urshela is getting accustomed to playing again, too. Let's just hope that his latest snafu doesn't look worse, post-MRI. At least Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton are still raking.The co-hosts also took a look at the Yankees' upcoming schedule and the current playoff race, which has New York perhaps too far back of Tampa Bay to worry much about the AL East, and the Red Sox going through a shaky week as well amid Wild Card contention. Time constraints prevented the standard "Meet a Baby Bomber" segment, but don't worry: there was no missing the Yankee and Mitre of the Week. Learn more about your ad choices.
