In this week’s episode of A Call Away with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre radio broadcaster Adam Giardino, we catch up with MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch and chat about his new book, Mission 27, which highlights the 2009 New York Yankees’ World Series run.
He dives in and tells some stories from that season and draws parallels to the current 2019 New York Yankees as they make their push towards a World Series title.
Also on the podcast is infielder Wendell Rijo. The 23-year old has spent a lot of time with the RailRiders this season, with all of the injuries taking place at the upper levels of the minors. Although he isn’t on most Top-30 lists for the organization, the Yankees have put trust in a player who has homered five times in his last 40 at-bats with the RailRiders, including a recent walk-off homer.
The voice of the RailRiders, Adam Marco, joins the podcast as always to discuss the recent trade deadline and the view of what did/didn’t take place from Triple-A, Deivi Garcia’s fifth start in Triple-A, and what Yankee fans can look for out of Mike Ford now that Luke Voit and Edwin Encarnacion are on the injured list.
The podcast finishes with reports from broadcasters Matt Dean of the Charleston RiverDogs (Single-A), Nick Flammia of the Tampa Tarpons (High-A), Jon Mozes of the Trenton Thunder (Double-A) and a report with Giardino’s broadcast partner, Adam Marco (Triple-A).
