The podcast is back and the Yankees are actually playing baseball! Not meaningful baseball, but it's baseball anyway. We discuss the Brett Gardner extension, the Andrew Bailey signing, whatever happened with Aledmys Diaz, Hawk Harrelson (for whatever reason), and the good ol' tweetbag. Jason's Internet cut out just before the podcast began, but he fought a valiant battle to return about 23 1/2 minutes in.
