Fri, Oct 9 SAVAGES: HIGGY HIGGY HIGGY: 10/8/20
Tremendous performance by the Yankees in Game 4 -- especially Jordan Montgomery, the bullpen, and KYLE HIGASHIOKA. Would the Yankees have won if Sanchez was catching? How Montgomery gave the Yankees what they needed, and how he saved Cashman, Boone, and everyone involved in the Game 2 debacle. 5 hitless innings from the pen. Who's available behind Cole Friday night?
Chris Carlin follows Game 4 of the ALDS and recaps the Yankee's crucial win against the Rays, tying the series 2 -2. He listens to postgame interviews from the team and looks forward to Game 5 as New York seeks to move on to the ALCS.
Thur, October 8 SAVAGES: Jordan Montgomery to save the season: 10/7/20
A rough start from Masahiro Tanaka, and some more bad umpiring cost the Yankees. We discuss why Tanaka was bad, and how you knew early there was a problem. One at bat changed it for the Yankees' offense, and one did it for the pitching. More fallout from the calamitous Game 2 decisions, and the blame game has begun. Now, Montgomery gets the ball with an incredibly short leash, to keep the season alive. Will we see Cole in a tight game late.? I'd bank on it.
Wed, Oct 7 SAVAGES: A Colossal Mistake : 10/6/20
A terrible mistake -- led to the evening up of the series. We discuss the decision to use Deivi Garcia as just an opener, and all the different repercussions. Giancarlo Stanton remains scorching hot, joining 2 others in Yankees lore. Why 18 strikeouts isn't a big deal -- except for one notable in the lineup.
Chris Carlin reviews the Yankees and Rays first game of the American League Division Series and explains what New York has to do next as he takes you up to first pitch of Game 2.
Tues, Oct 6 SAVAGES: That was a late night bludgeoning: 10/5/20
Giancarlo Stanton is on a roll. His grand slam blew the game wide open, as the Yankees cruise. We discuss why Game 1 was an absolute must win for the Yankees, and how now, it gives them even more of a mental edge. Eye opening stats about their discipline at the plate. Aaron Boone deserves a lot of credit, and so does Kyle Higashioka -- and not just for his home run. Game 2 with Deivi Garcia against Tyler Glasnow.
Chris says it's not the right time for the Jets to fire Adam Gase. The real issue with this team is talent.
Thurs, Oct 1 SAVAGES: We're on to Tampa (in San Diego) : 9/30/20
Ups and downs all night long, between early raindrops & bad decisions by MLB. A gritty win for the Yankees, as Aaron Boone puts it up there with some of the best he's been a part of. We hear from Gio Urshela on where this game ranks for him. Problems that arose Wednesday night -- could they be a problem moving forward in the postseason? And a key word for a Yankees star -- average. (Not batting average, either.)
Wed, Sept 30 SAVAGES: Brilliance Throughout: 9/29/20
Game 1 couldn't have gone any better. Aaron Judge right out of the gate, and the offense kept coming. Why it was a statement -- and how the approach against the likely AL Cy Young winner was perfect. Gerrit Cole was what you hoped -- terrific. We discuss his most important moment in the game. Brett Gardner's impact continues to come on and off the field. A preview of Game 2 -- with Masahiro Tanaka and Carlos Carrasco. Will Gary Sanchez play? The answer is obvious.
Tuesday, Sept 29 SAVAGES: THE PLAYOFFS ARE HERE.: 9/28/20
Playoffs are finally here. The Yankees face the Indians in Cleveland. Confidence will play a huge role for the Yankees, given how streaky they've been this year. An important factor will help them avoid feast or famine. A brilliant pitching matchup to start, why the Yankees have history on their side. Matchup problems and possibilities. And -- someone who may be available late in the postseason. A complete playoff preview!
Chris pulls out his thesaurus to tell us how abhorrent, miserable, and awful NY Football has been this year.
Friday, Sept 25 SAVAGES: MAYDAY. MAYDAY. DIVE! DIVE!: 9/24/20
RUT ROW. The Yankees more than happy to put Buffalo in the rearview. Dropped 4 out of 5, and more trouble with runners in scoring position. Jordan Montgomery was OK. The streakiness of the Yankees continues to astound. The rotation looks lined up -- but the Yankees still have yet to clinch 2nd in the AL East. Don't forget -- this weekend means something to the Marlins
Chris wonders if Sam Darnold is so bad that he's dominating the conversation about New York football-- and making Daniel Jones look good by comparison. Are Jones and Darnold the franchise quarterbacks the Giants and Jets are looking for?
Thu, Sep 24 SAVAGES: Brevity is the Soul of Wit: 9/24/20
Not a whole lot to say about this one.....and we say it.
Wed, Sep 23 SAVAGES: Minneapolis is Beautiful in the Fall: 9/22/20
The brief 2-game losing streak is over, and that's kind of important. We explain why -- and look at Gerrit Cole's month of September, and just how ready he is for the postseason. Plus, Kyle Higashioka will catch him in Game 1 next week. You might think that would be a hole in the lineup, but maybe not. The offense exploded -- we hear from Aaron Booner on Judge, and Aaron Hicks on....himself. Plus, chances getting slimmer foe the 4 seed in the AL, but magic number down to 1 for clinching 2nd place in the AL East.
Chris Carlin looks back at the Jets and Giants week 2 performances. He points out that year 3 is crucial for Sam Darnold to prove himself and wonders if the Giants will have Daniel Jones be more mobile in the absence of Saquon Barkley.
Chris is extremely disappointed in not only the Jets and Giants performances this Sunday, but in the fans for being so apathetic about the constant losing.
Mon, Sep 21 SAVAGES: The Postseason. : 9/21/20
Yes -- they lost Sunday, snapping the 10-game win streak, but clinched a postseason birth with the Padres' win over the Mariners. Deivi Garcia didn't have it for the first time -- but would you still trust him in the playoffs? Apparently, some are not ready to commit. Judge & Urshela were out of the lineup for planned off days, but a close eye is being kept. Don't overlook JA Happ for a Game 3 start -- he's earned it. Gary Sanchez is climbing out of the hole, but he doesn't have to be a star. Plus, playoff maneuvering by Aaron Boone, and an eye on potential seeding.
Fri, Sept 18 SAVAGES: Um, wow. : 9/17/20
5 home runs in the 4th inning, and the 3rd consecutive day with 6 HRs in a game. 30 of the Yankees 43 runs in the 3 game series with the Blue Jays came by way of the HR. Masahiro Tanaka sharp again, making it 5 out of 8 on the win streak for starters going 7 innings. Plus -- how did MLB unwittingly give the Yankees a huge advantage going into the postseason? Also, what does Aaron Boone pay attention to over the next week?
Chris Carlin addresses the Jets fans that are upset with Adam Gase's performance, gives his "Locks of Incompetence," and talks to Alan Hahn about the Islanders' Game 6.

Wed, Sep 16 SAVAGES: 5 YEARS?!?! 5 YEARS MAN?!?!?!: 9/15/20
Even Gary Sanchez got in on the onslaught! Sanchez drove in 4 -- hit a 3-run HR, Luke Voit leads the Majors in HR. Deivi Garcia again -- would you feel confident with him in the postseason right now? Hard not to. Plus -- news on Gleyber Torres -- out again. Aaron Judge back by the weekend. What to look for with Gerrit Cole on the mound later today -- and what does the manager think turned everything around?
Chris Carlin recaps the Jets and Giants' kickoff games and chats with callers about what the New York football teams need to do moving forward.
Chris tackles the disappointment that was the Jets on Sunday and the continual disappointment that Gary Sanchez has been all season.
Mon, Sep 14 SAVAGES: No, No Gleyber. Leave the Glasses on. : 9/13/20
Not exactly a totally relaxing weekend, but a good one. Big hits. Great pitching. Eye opening statistics. Fashionable eyewear. This weekend had it all. The O's are buried, but the Blue Jays lay ahead. We discuss why it's imperative to finish at least in 2nd in the AL East. Also, something to keep an eye on with Gerrit Cole this week. And of course, Gary Sanchez.
It's NFL Opening Day and Chris Carlin is giving New York everything they need to know to start the football season right. He chats Jets with Rich Cimini, Giants with Jordan Raanan, and gives his thoughts on the Yankees' win ahead of tomorrow's double header.
Thu, Sep 10 SAVAGES: Discoteque? Boonie, You're Not 67: 9/9/20
Nice & easy, just like Clairol. Or something. Yankees made it look easy, thanks to Deivi Garcia. His most important facet isn't what he throws. Also, he got help from Gleyber Torres, who is back to wearing glasses and drove in 4 runs. Torres & DJ LeMahieu have proven themselves the most indispensable on the team. Also, why this particular style of win -- may lead to bigger things.
Wed, Sep 9 SAVAGES: Tough Talk, Same Result. : 9/8/20
Shane Falco had it down. The yankees' latest loss was one that felt like it happened in the first inning. After Brian Cashman spoke to the team, the reaction was tepid. The offense loaded the bases with 3 walks in the first inning and came up empty. Only DJ LeMahieu was even hitting the ball hard. Luke Voit finally provided the commentary we've all been looking for. Yankees now even in the loss column with the ORIOLES.
Carlin: 9/9/20: 9/8/20
Carlin prepares you for the Jets season kicking off this Sunday against the Bills on 98.7 ESPN. It all comes back to Sam Darnold. He needs to prove himself. Plus, Carlin is disgusted with Gary Sanchez and the Yankees.
Tues, Sep 8 SAVAGES: Keanu Reeves Knows What It's Like: 9/7/20
A disastrous 6th inning -- had us looking for somewhere to turn for answers. Maybe we found them. Meanwhile, the Yankees scored runs -- but the "high leverage" relievers looked like Jay Whitasick in his heyday. We hear from Aaron Boone on his team's confidence (or lack thereof,) and what REALLY killed them Monday night. Also, Adam Ottavino searches for answers himself. Finally, what exactly is the problem with Gary Sanchez at the plate? Aaron Boone thinks he knows, and Chris doesn't think we'll see Sanchez in pinstripes for much longer.
Fri, Sep 4 SAVAGES: Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot: 9/3/20
As bad as it gets. The Yankees did everything they could to lose the game -- and we take you through everything that went wrong and the reaction to it. plus, Aaron Boone's postgame tone was far from the right one. Mistakes from bench players in areas they specialize in they specialize can't be made. Plus, an under the radar injury concern. While this is a crucial series in Baltimore, and pressure applied to Deivi Garcia.
Wed, Sep 2 SAVAGES: That Escalated Quickly: 9/1/20
The storyline should've been the Yankees winning -- but it was all the drama of the 9th inning. Aroldis Chapman throwing up & in to 3 straight hitters, and the rays got VERY ticked off about it. The postgame reaction fanned the flames, including from Rays' Manager Kevin Cash. Hear from him, Aaron Boone, Mike Brosseau, DJ LeMahieu, and Zack Britton. Oh yeah -- Masahiro Tanaka was excellent, DJ homered twice -- but what does this all mean going into the last regular season meeting Wednesday? Did Chapman just put his teammates in harm's way?
Tues, Sept 1 SAVAGES: Pretty Simple Right Now: 8/31/20
Gerrit Cole didn't dominate, and in fact, wasn't very good. Why? We hear from Aaron Boone and Cole, and put Boone's comments through the YANKEE TRANSLATOR. Where has the offense gone? Alarming numbers in the clutch, particularly against Tampa. Plus, Brian Cashman on the deadline passing without a move, and if that was the right thing for the Yankees.
Anita and guests tackle the MLB trade deadline, the strange happenings in Jacksonville, Gase vs Bell, and the NBA Playoffs
Mon, Aug 31 SAVAGES: BIG DAY!: 8/31/20
Sometimes, bizarre things happen and come together to lead a team back from struggles. Sometimes, just one bounce. But will the Yankees salvaging the weekend lead to a winning streak? Did Gary Sanchez take himself off the schnide for good? Rays coming in, and Gerrit Cole on the mound. Have the Yankees gotten what they paid for so far? Finally, as the deadline approaches at 4pm, where are the Yankees most likely to turn?

Fri, Aug 28 SAVAGES: Judge, DJ, and The One That Got Away: 8/28/20
With no game, we look ahead with some news about Aaron Judge's prognosis, as well as, encouraging news on DJ LeMahieu. Who could carry the team out of the not-so-usual suspects? Mark Teixeira opines on Thursday's "The Michael Kay Show" -- we discuss. One pitcher we likely won't see this weekend, and one we definitely won't. Five games with the Mets in two days -- Ooof.
Larry Hardesty fills in for Carlin to discuss the role of professional athletes in social justice issues. He talks to Scott Burnside about the NHL, Rich Coutinho about the Mets, and Kristie Ackert about the Yankees.
Thu, Aug 27 SAVAGES: This. Team. Might. Suck. : 8/27/20
3 main themes: Gerrit Cole, Aaron Judge, and Masahiro Tanaka. Oh, and a lack of hitting with RISP. And the longest losing streak in 2 yrs. And a strength & conditioning coach feeling pretty good right about now. It's all in depth analysis.

Fri, Aug 21 SAVAGES: Burn It to the Ground: 8/21/20
Ugly afternoon Thursday. Yankees were pounded by the Rays this week -- who were the better team. James Paxton and Gleyber Torres both headed for MRI's, after Zack Britton was put on the DL. Can they withstand this barrage of injuries like last year? maybe not, because of one key reason. Other issue -- the Rays are taking special delight in beating up on the Yankees. Next man up on goes so far -- or does it?
Thu, Aug 20: Gerrit Cole Cares: 8/19/20
Gerrit Cole p[itched decent, but got pissy about being taken out even though the yankees got out of the 7th. We hear from him -- still mad after the game. Bad fielding in the 8th, plus terrible at bats in the 9th cost the Yankees. Numbers with RISP are abysmal vs. Tampa. Can they salvage one? Can Paxton pitch well? Who invented the sleeveless shirt? 2 of 3 of those questions to be answered Thursday.
Carlin : 8/19/20

Wed, Aug 19th SAVAGES: This is Becoming a Problem: 8/18/20
Masahiro Tanaka was the problem, as Harry Doyle reminds us at the beginning of the podcast (NSF kids.) Yanks had opportunities, but the RISP against the Rays is bad. They also can't hit the Tampa bullpen. Why this -- is becoming a problem the Yankees may have to contend with all year. Aaron Boone & Gerrit Cole speak out on Tatis controversy. updates on Judge & LeMahieu, and a pitching matchup Wednesday night that might not be as good as you think.
Tues, Aug 18 SAVAGES: Send the Red Sox to the Upside Down: 8/17/20
Stop making us watch the Boston Red Sox "play baseball." Are you kidding? Brutal. Ho hum night for the Yankees. Luke Voit an underrated part of Yankees' success.

Mon, Aug 17 Savages: The Red Sox Still Really Suck: 8/16/20
10 straight at home over the Red Sox. Anyone who throws on a Yankees uniform can hit them right now. JA Happ solid, but beware of some drama that may pick up some steam in the coming weeks. Aaron Judge isn't happy about being on the IL -- but there is a weird angle to this not being discussed. The loss of DJ LeMahieu was a killer, but news sounding encouraging on how long he's gone. Important recall for Miguel Andujar, Gary Sanchez is on the right track, but not quite there yet. Hit parade should continue Monday night.

Wed, Aug 12 SAVAGES: I Can't Call It "The Alternate SIte" ANYMORE. It's Freakin' Scranton!: 8/12/20
Yankees win in unimpressive fashion, 9-6. All the details. Aaron Boone's trigger finger hasn't exactly been on point. Aaron Judge dented the Toyota sign, but then left in a 5 run game. Is he actually OK? Seemed weird. Talent always covers up for sloppiness. Well, almost always. Don't be shocked if it's not just Clint Frazier DH'ing in the coming day.
