It's been a couple weeks at this point, but the Yankees' 2021 season is over. It lasted just one game longer than the rest of the American League playoff field, as the Red Sox clobbered them in the Wild Card Game at Fenway Park. It was a bummer, but of course not all that surprising given how the year had progressed.

Kunj and Andrew didn't return to just talk about the Wild Card loss, though. The big news from yesterday ...

The Yankees did not make it easy. Oh sure, they looked like they might wrap up a Wild Card spot in due time after taking five of six on the road from the division rival Red Sox and Blue Jays. Then, they ran into the Tampa Bay buzzsaw and narrowly avoided a tiebreaker by winning, 1-0, on the season's final day -- thanks in no small part to the pitching staff and Aaron Judge's timely infield single. Now, they'll head righ...

Leave it to the Yankees to wring every last bit of drama out of this wayward 2021 season. A week after looking so uninspiring against Baltimore and Cleveland that Andrew and Kunj were close to writing them off, they’ve roped 'em back in with consecutive sweeps of the Rangers at home (yawn) and the Red Sox at Fenway (wait, what?). Giancarlo Stanton went berserk in Boston and suddenly, the Yankees are in the driver’s seat of the ...

Last week, when we saw that the Yankees had Baltimore on Cleveland on deck, we said that with tougher opponents awaiting them at the end of 2021, the Bombers had to capitalize. Instead, they blew a golden opportunity to sweep the O's (dropping their eighth game of the season to the 102-loss team) and got pummeled by Cleveland at home on back-to-back afternoons.

Yeah, this isn't going to be a very happy podcast. There's m...

It's been a weird, rough stretch for the Yankees since their 13-game winning streak, but Kunj was fortunate enough to miss most of it while on vacation. He returned on Saturday though, and what do you know! It coincided with a Yankees victory to snap the seven-game losing streak. Maybe they were just sad without him.

In all seriousness, the Wild Card race has grown much tighter and on Monday morning, the Yankees were out of a pl...

As noted on last week’s podcast, Kunj is on the other side of the world this week and avoiding Yankees baseball while soaking up the sun. That turned out to be a blissful plan, as he’s missed a disastrous pair of series between the weekend loss to the Orioles and the current Blue Jays bludgeoning. The Yankees have already lost their Wild Card lead on Boston and will be a mere half-game in front of Toronto if they don’t rally to avo...

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 rece...

The Yankees simply haven't stopped winning since the last time Andrew and Kunj sat down to record a podcast. A solid five-game winning streak has bloomed into the club's longest such run in 36 years: 11 victories in a row. The Red Sox, Twins, and Braves have been swept aside, and the Bombers now have a three-game lead in the first Wild Card spot. Although it's annoying that the Rays keep winning as well, that will play!

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, ...

Andrew and Kunj discuss a promising 5-2 week of Yankees baseball that featured some pretty great games bookended by a couple frustrating ones. On the bright side, they mostly took of business with Baltimore before nabbing three of four from the Wild Card rival Mariners over the weekend. They were legitimately fun wins! The team is doing as much as it can to hang in the race despite setbacks elsewhere, and rookie Luis Gil has been k...

After a busy, busy trade deadline, Andrew and Kunj reconvene to discuss all of the Yankees' moves, led of course by the tragic DFA-ing of Sal Romano, "The Big Cheese." We miss you already, buddy.

In reality, the Joey Gallo and Anthony Rizzo trades were of course the focus, and the deals featuring Andrew Heaney, Luis Cessa, Justin Wilson, and Clay Holmes were all discussed. GM Brian Cashman did a pretty good job of keepin...

Andrew and Kunj are back on the PSA Podcast beat this week, and the weekend in Boston went so poorly that the two-game mini-sweep of the Phillies wasn't mentioned even once. That's how much of a great time the Yankees had at Fenway, where Chad Green, Jonathan Loaisiga, and Brooks Kriske all experienced spectacular meltdowns in a four-game series loss that probably sank the Yankees out of AL East contention in 2021.

At one point, Andrew and Kunj thought that there might not be enough to talk about for a podcast so soon after the most recent edition went live last Thursday. Then, well, Aaron Judge and several other Yankees got COVID, Luke Voit ended up back on the injured list, and suddenly, the Yankees' lineup against the Red Sox featured an outfield of Ryan LaMarre, Greg Allen, and Trey Amburgey.

Perhaps the most inexplicable part of this ...

The last time Andrew and Kunj podcasted, the first half was essentially over, as half of the Yankees' season had already been played. Well, now we're beyond the math, as the All-Star break and MLB Draft are both behind us. The Yankees officially kick off the second half on Thursday night against the Red Sox, and they still have so much to prove.


The Yankees technically ended the first half on a high note with a 4-2 road trip...

As it turns out, Andrew picked a good week to go to the beach. Since the last podcast, the Yankees were embarrassed by the Red Sox, Angels, and Mets in order, and their best pitchers (Gerrit Cole and Aroldis Chapman) looked more suspect than ever. Isn’t chaos great?

Andrew and Kunj caught up on this dismal 2-7 stretch of Yankees baseball that only further clouded the potential playoff picture. Fenway losses, Chapman meltdowns, and g...
