The Yankees have made their first notable move of the offseason, bringing Anthony Rizzo back on a two-year contract that will guarantee the veteran $40 million and give New York an option to bring him back in 2025. The news came out mere hours after Rizzo rejected the qualifying offer and looked to be headed for a drawn-out negotiation in free agency.

Thankfully, the Yankees avoided all that and locked in their Opening Day first bas...

The dust has fully settled on the 2022 Yankees, so now we must look beyond. Josh Diemert, Peter Brody, and Esteban Rivera gathered for a Twitter Spaces session on November 2nd to chat about the biggest questions facing the Yankees this coming offseason.

As Josh detailed, the main four characters are free agent GM Brian Cashman, embattled manager Aaron Boone, steady first baseman Anthony Rizzo, and of course, the 62-homer superstar A...

Well, the Yankees' 2022 season is officially over. For the fourth time in the last eight seasons, the Yankees' dreams end at the hands of the Houston Astros. Andrew and Kunj's most recent episode of the podcast prior to now came with the Yankees already facing an 0-2 deficit in the ALCS and heading home to The Bronx to hopefully turn their fortunes. They headed to The Bronx alright, but just like the first two games, th...

The rain wreaked havoc on not only the Yankees’ playoff schedule, but also our podcast schedule. Real-world commitments kept Kunj and Andrew from doing a post-ALDS pod, but they’re back on the airwaves ... just in time to see the Yankees limp back to the Bronx facing an 0-2 deficit in the ALCS to those hated Astros. Whoops!

The offense has continued its playoff deep freeze. They did just barely enough to get by the Guardians in the ...

The Yankees have an early lead in their 2022 American League Division Series matchup with the Cleveland Guardians! So Josh Diemert, Peter Brody, and Sam Chapman gathered in the postgame glow to chat about the big 4-1 win on Twitter Spaces.

Gerrit Cole allowed just one run on four hits and a walk in 6.1 innings of work while striking out eight, recovering from third-inning shakiness to keep Cleveland quiet. Meanwhile, Harrison Bader ...

The Yankees thankfully got to sit out the Wild Card Series weekend and await their ALDS opponent, and now we know who they’ll be playing tomorrow night in the Bronx. The Guardians dispatched the Rays in just two games, allowing a single run to Tampa Bay across 24 innings of work. So it’ll be New York vs. Cleveland in the Division Series again, in a rematch of past 2017 and 2020 playoff showdowns.

Kunj and Andrew bantered about the f...

The 2022 regular season has come to a close, but for the 24th time in 28 years, that's not the end for Yankees baseball. The AL East champions finished the year with 99 wins and a first-round bye past the Wild Card round, where they'll await the winners of the Guardians/Rays series in the ALDS.

Andrew and Kunj will be back for a full Division Series preview on Monday, but we wanted to take a bit to reflect on the regular sea...

Even as Aaron Judge went quiet for most of the past week since the last podcast, it was a good one for the Yankees. They went a perfect 6-0 on the homestand against the Pirates and Red Sox, rightfully taking care of business against some bad teams, and that put them in prime position to clinch the AL East in a head-to-head showdown at Rogers Centre in Toronto. They fell short on Monday but finally clinched on Tuesday, securing not ...

We’re back for another podcast with two important chases afoot. First, the Yankees are inching closer to their 2022 AL East crown, and their magic number is down to eight with just about a week and a half to go in the season. They shook off a couple annoying losses in Milwaukee to win big on Sunday, and then recorded a huge comeback in the bottom of the ninth at home against the Pirates on Tuesday. That bailed them out of an even m...

Kunj is back on the PSA Podcast and thankfully, the Yankees have done their best over the past several days to assuage some doubts that their mini-winning streak last week wasn't merely typical Twins nonsense. They took two out of three over the weekend from the Rays in decisive fashion, and after Aaron Judge belted a pair of homers to reach 57 last night, Gleyber Torres ensured that the night would end in a W. The division tit...

The Yankees' extremely lackluster August and early-September had Andrew prepared to tackle the brutal task of discussing this team on his own this week with Kunj on vacation, but a four-game winning streak that followed an awful road trip through Oakland, Anaheim, and Tampa Bay at least the monologue sounding a bit more chipper than it would have otherwise been.

With 55 homers through 137 games, Aaron Judge has still been incred...

The once-again slumping Yankees are turning to a top prospect to see if he'll help lift them out of their funk. Oswald Peraza will be with the team on Friday as it enters a now-important three-game set with the Rays at Tropicana Field.

Josh Diemert, Peter Brody, and Esteban Rivera had planned to host a Twitter Space on Thursday evening anyway, but that news only made the discussion more interesting. Topics included Peraza (of co...

The Yankees answered our wishes of riding the wave of the Josh Donaldson walk-off slam into a return to their first-half winning ways. They just had the wipe out, face-first on the sand for a few days before picking themselves back up (obviously). But after losing three in a row at home to Toronto and hearing choirs of boos at Yankee Stadium while Aaron Boone fumed in the postgame, they've actually put some wins together for th...

The Yankees’ miserable stretch continued after they lost series to the Red Sox and Rays after ending their awful road trip. However, last night’s sweep-avoiding extra-innings walk-off win against the Rays did bring some optimism and hopefully did enough to inject some life into this team that’s looked lifeless for the better part of two months now. This team was in dire need of a spark and Josh Donaldson might have just provided it...

The Yankees have lost seven of their last eight games, including a sweep by the Cardinals over the past weekend. They are 7-13 in the second half, have dropped 18 of their last 28 games, and are 20-23 since the start of that fateful series against the Astros in late June. The optimist might say that this is a lot of arbitrary endpoints, but also, I don't think anyone would deny that they've looked miserable in the past week...

What a strange couple days, huh? As the Trade Deadline crept to a close, the Yankees made some notable moves. The Frankie Montas, Lou Trivino, and Scott Effross additions were met with near-universal praise, and getting a minor pitching prospect in exchange for Joey Gallo wasn't too shabby either. However, the decision to flip steady starter Jordan Montgomery for injured outfielder Harrison Bader was met with some understandabl...

Yankees GM Brian Cashman had quite a busy Monday. In the span of just a few hours, he dealt five prospects for three MLB pitchers: starter Frankie Montas and relievers Lou Trivino and Scott Effross. It's a lot to take in, but you can't say that the Yankees have refused to improve this already-talented team. Join this Twitter Spaces recording from before Monday night's game, when Josh Diemert, Peter Brody, Jake Devin, an...

Problem: The Yankees have been off their game in July with a 10-12 record and 2-5 since the end of the All-Star break, including an 0-4 mark against the potential October opponent Astros and Mets. Sure, IL stints from Michael King, Giancarlo Stanton, and Luis Severino haven't helped matters, but even with the team's terrific record, areas for improvement are clear.

Solution: GM Brian Cashman took an important step toward res...

The All-Star break is officially behind us, as is the first half of the 2022 MLB season. Technically, we passed the 81-game threshold in early July, but for all accounting purposes, the second half will begin with the Yankees’ doubleheader in Houston on Thursday. (Note that this episode was recorded on Wednesday afternoon.)

Before Andrew and Kunj fall too far in the weeds in looking ahead to the future and more extensive trade deadl...

The Yankees went through some ups and downs this past week, with the highs of winning back-to-back games at Fenway with good showings by the offense and the lows of three blown nights in a row. They had leads in each game on Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday, but they all evaporated and two of them came on blown saves from Clay Holmes. The now-All-Star closer is experiencing his first bumps of the season, but Andrew and Kunj still have...

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County.

Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused.
