In ESNY’s Earn Your Stripes podcast’s debut show, Christian Kouroupakis and Emmanuel Berbari debate the latest New York Yankees topics.
ESNY’s “Earn Your Stripes Podcast” combines the minds of New York Yankees beat writer Christian Kouroupakis and featured columnist Emmanuel Berbari to form an electric duo to debate everything surrounding the Bronx Bombers.
In EYS’ debut show, Kouroupakis and Berbari discuss the potential replacements for shortstop Didi Gregorius in the wake of his shoulder injury suffered in the World Baseball Classic. Trying to replace 20 home runs from the shortstop position is tough, but they believe their fix is up to the task.
Spoiler alert: they have some words for those who want Gleyber Torres or Tyler Wade in there.
In the second half of the show, the two give their take on who warrants one of the two final rotation spots. Just nine days left in spring training, manager Joe Girardi must decide between Bryan Mitchell, Luis Severino, Chad Green, Jordan Montgomery and Adam Warren.
Who do they think deserve a spot? Give the debut show a listen and find out!
