After all the worries about the Yankees in April, they have turned their season around in May.
The Yankees are now just a game back of first place in the AL East after taking the first two games against the rival Rays down in St. Petersburg. What a turn of events for a Yankees team that couldn’t do much of anything right the first month. Now, Cole has the rotation dazzling and the bullpen is shutting the door.
To talk about where the Yankees are after the first two wins over the Rays, we bring you a new episode of the “Pinstripe Pod” with Chris Shearn and Jeff Nelson, featuring an interview with the original Yankees designated hitter, Ron Blomberg.
Pinstripe Pod Opening Segment with Chris, Jeff & Jake:
- BIG WINS OVER RAYS: Yankees needed to take down the Rays. Cole was sensational. What a turnaround for the Yanks after many were concerned.
- LINEUP/SERIES AHEAD: You can’t give up on Gary Sanchez just yet. Ken Singleton returns to the booth this weekend against the Orioles. Shearn and I try our Bob Sheppard impressions for Kenny’s grand return.
Ron Blomberg Interview:
Former Yankees DH, Author of “The Captain & Me: On and Off the Field with Thurman Munson”
- NEW BOOK: Memories playing with Thurman Munson.
- NELLIE MEMORIES/NY DELIS: Going up against Nellie. The best NY Jewish delis.
