Pinstripe Alley Podcast Episode 49: Return of Hughes face

"Oh." - USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back and there it goes.

The Yankees had a very mediocre week and continued to hover around .500, so we talked about bullpen usage, how other teams are doing around the division, whether or not the Yankees should go after Kendrys Morales, and what Derek Jeter is going to do with the sand sculpture of Mo when the Rays inevitably re-gift it to him. Enjoy.
