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 afternoon the real news hit. John Sterling retired from his post as the radio voice of the Yankees on WFAN, effective immediately. This news isn’t entirely surprising considering he’d been reducing his workload in recent years, but the timing of it and facing the reality of it is shocking nonetheless. Since the news broke, many have shared their thoughts on what Sterling meant to them as Yankees fans, or baseball fans, or broadcast fans, so we gathered here at Podument Park to do the same.  Our hosts talk about what Sterling meant to them, to the organization, and just what a true change it’ll be to no longer have that presence in the radio booth. Still, not to be too put down, and never ones to miss an opportunity for a draft, we end the podcast by doing two drafts of the man’s legendary home run calls (around the 19:30 mark). The first draft has Andrew and Kunj selecting their overall favorite calls and the latter has them selecting their Top Three “what was that” or WTF calls, still good but definitely raising some eyebrows. As always, the podcast ended with the Yankee and Manfred of the Week awards. There was a joint recipient for Yankee of the Week, and you know exactly who it is.  Learn more about your ad choices.
