Pinstripe Alley Podcast Episode 54: Ugh this team

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees are under .500 and we're kind of dying. Also: Chase Headley rumors.

The Yankees only won once since we last recorded, and that was on Friday! So they're on a five-game losing streak, the offense is basically dead, and that's just swell. Join us to commiserate.

[0:14] Five-game losing streak and under .500: Baseball is cruel.
[2:44] Even in a bad division, the Yankees cannot afford another awful stretch like the past 11 games (2-9)--thoughts on the piling on of the losses
[10:03] On CC Sabathia's rehab start, the red-hot Rob Refsnyder, the badly slumping Yangervis Solarte, and Jose Pirela (note: this was recorded before news of Solarte's demotion hit)
[18:00] The Yankees are connected to Chase Headley again, but this time it actually makes sense to get him if he's being sold for a low cost
[24:14] Tweetbag: Is the 2013 or 2014 team more frustrating, Travis Ishikawa Face, Jacoby Ellsbury's defensive metrics, excuses for not calling up Refsnyder & Pirela, Masahiro Tanaka superlatives, best liquor to drink when watching the offense, front office talking-down, and John Sterling home run calls for our favorite international free agents (my Internet connection was shaky during this segment, so I might sound a little choppy, but it should still be mostly fine)
[40:18] Yankee/Mitre of the Week
