The Yankees listened to Andrew and Kunj's pleas and decided not to take the weekdays off last week. They've decidedly won series against two of their biggest rivals. Admittedly, neither the Astros or Rays have played well this season so far, but seeing the Yankees handle them with relative ease remains definitely a sight for the sore eyes of anyone who’s followed the Yanks the past few years. Podument Park is back this week to disc...

The last time Andrew and Kunj recorded a podcast, they talked about how the Yankees let themselves off the hook for splitting a series with the A’s by exploding for 37 runs against the Brewers. It wasn’t quite the same this past week, but a new pattern might be emerging. Welcome to the latest edition of Podument Park! In a similar pattern to last week, the Yankees started the week dreadfully by losing a four-game set against the Or...

After a week off, it’s time for a new edition of Podument Park! Most of the past week — especially Friday night — had Andrew and Kunj champing at the bit to yell at the Yankees, and that does still happen a bit. However, as if the Yankees themselves were reading the back-and-forth Slack messages, they did their part to change the narrative. Fifteen runs on Saturday! Fifteen runs on Sunday! Wonderful stuff, and the co-hosts were del...

The Yankees had a rather uneventful week overall as they went 4-3 since the last time the podcast assembled. They mostly played fine, but there were certainly some duds along the way. Some injury news as well happened, as Jon Berti hit the IL with a left groin strain and DJ LeMahieu is working his way to a rehab assignment. In any other week, this would be considered a relatively quiet week of Yankees baseball. However, on Monday a...

The Yankees did drop a couple games in this first full week of the season but overall went 4-2 to move to 8-2 on the young season, so Andrew and Kunj are happy here at Podument Park! Just the difference in how they’re getting these wins compared to last year when sometimes the game felt over from the early goings, right now they at least have us feeling hopeful that games aren’t over until they’re actually over. Yogi would love it!...

What a thrilling start for the Yankees and what a way for Juan Soto to get started for his new team! A four-game sweep of the Astros at Minute Maid Park is something no one could have predicted and yet that’s what just happened. It probably doesn’t happen if the Yankees don’t get Juan Soto, but they did and he is a Yankee and never has “Give him a blank check, Hal” been more appropriate. Juan Soto belongs in pinstripes. With the fi...

We made it! Opening Day is finally here and the awfulness of 2023 is officially behind us all. This is the one true day of the year that all baseball fans should be optimistic, because the clock has reset for everyone. The Yankees have spent the long winter talking about how they felt embarrassed last year and they’ve promised to do better. Now it’s time to see if their actions will speak louder than their words. With that, Andrew ...

Just about the worst possible injury news for the Yankees came this past week, as we learned Gerrit Cole will miss "at least" the first 1-2 months of the season. The extent of the damage is still unknown as he flew to Los Angeles to meet with Dr. Neal ElAttrache to discuss what’s going on, and get a better idea of a timeline for return. Join us as we cry into the void on this week’s edition of Podument Park. The main focus of the w...

We are so back, folks. With Yankees baseball back in action, it’s time for our friends at Podument Park to gear up for the grind of the regular season as well. It’s an interesting race at Podument Park to see who’s going to make the Opening Day roster; of course, it’s a two-man roster and there are only two candidates, but maybe Blake Snell or Jordan Montgomery will make a last-minute surprise signing and put Andrew’s roster spot i...

Finally, the misery that was the 2023 Yankees is over. Baseball is still being played as the Division Series for both leagues gets ready to start this weekend, but the Yankees will not be participating, something many had resigned the Yankees to as early as June or July. Their play this season was simply pathetic and Aaron Judge’s long absence highlighted many of the roster construction flaws that his presence can usually cover up....

Note: This week’s podcast was sadly recorded prior to the news of Josh Donaldson’s release from the organization. But do know that we would have enjoyed dancing on the grave of his Yankees career. Technically this past week of Yankees baseball was slightly more palatable than the previous week. They actually won two whole games this time, which is still an improvement over the eight-game losing streak they took into last week’s pod...

For a few weeks now, readers of this site and listeners of this podcast have read/heard us all talking about how much the Yankees flat-out stink. Well, the Bronx Bombers, er “losers of eight in a row,” have shown us that even we undersold how bad they truly are. With that, Andrew and Kunj had no desire to actually talk in detail about the 2023 Yankees (beyond recent prospect promotions), so they chose to avoid them as much as possi...

Believe it or not, the 2023 Yankees are not a good baseball team. The times when you think they’re going to win a game are few and far between, and even then, they go and find a different way to lose in frustrating fashion. They have a 60-58 record going into recording this podcast, and 58 of those losses all feel like they could qualify for “worst loss of the season.” That number is only going to get higher; the win total might no...

Due to some real-life things happening, Andrew and Kunj haven’t been able to record the podcast since before the All-Star break. What doesn’t help is that the Yankees haven't done much to motivate us to find some time either. It’s just been all bad. The highlight of the second half has essentially been being mildly amused at Domingo Germán getting scratched from a start due to armpit discomfort and then finding himself pitching fiv...

Whether you think the first half of the baseball season is the 81-game mark or the All-Star break, the first half of the baseball season is officially in the books. And was it ever so ... dull and disappointing for the Yankees? Scattered among the lifeless and uncompetitive at-bats of the first half were some moments of fun and competence, but overall this first half was just not a memorable one for the Bombers. The struggles of th...

The most recent of Yankees baseball has featured a perfect game, back-to-back double-digit run outbursts, a gutsy pure bullpen game victory, and the extremely welcome resurgence of rookie shortstop Anthony Volpe. Not bad, right? Unfortunately, as Andrew and Kunj delve into on today's podcast, the highs were pretty much the lone positive developments (the same could be said for the first half as a whole). The Yankees managed to only...

When there’s no real explanation for something, the best way to explain what happened is with a simple “somehow.” If it’s good enough for a billion-dollar franchise to explain their villain coming back from the dead, then it’s good enough for me. Somehow, the Yankees managed to win four games and two series this week. They weren’t the most exciting wins, but wins are wins and right now that’s all that matters. Andrew and Kunj talk ...

If you missed the Yankees this past week/weekend, consider yourself lucky. Since the last podcast, the Yankees won the opener of the series against the Mets and haven’t won since. They split that series at least, but then got thoroughly embarrassed on the way to getting swept at Fenway Park. The Aaron Judge-less Yankees continue to look lifeless and there’s no end in sight for that. As Andrew and Kunj discuss on the latest episode ...

Welcome to another episode of Podument Park; please leave your socks at the door as they are not welcome on this podcast. As we saw during Aaron Judge’s first stint on the injured list earlier this year, this team has a tough time winning games, scoring runs, or convincing us that they’re actually living human beings when he’s not around. With the Dodger Stadium wall getting the last laugh over Judge, we saw a return to that form a...

For the first time, perhaps ever (only slightly exaggerating), a West Coast trip for the Yankees was not miserable. Sure, they’ve had winning trips near the Pacific before, but between the pitch clock letting games that started late end at a reasonable-ish time, and taking two out of three at Chavez Ravine against the Dodgers, it was a mostly great week! Still, it wasn’t all LA sunshine for the Yankees this week as they also dealt ...
