With an uninspiring start to the 2017 campaign, Christian Kouroupakis and Emmanuel Berbari discuss if a trip to the panic city is in order for the New York Yankees.
New York Yankees baseball is back, and the hosts at Earn Your Stripes Podcast have a ton to discuss.
Three games in, there is a ton to be concerned about involving this team. Catcher Gary Sanchez and first baseman Greg Bird are a combined 2-for-26 (.076) and have struck out seven times. The rest of the Yankees’ lineup is hitting .303 (24-for-79). Panic time?
On the other side of the field, the Yankees starting rotation has pitched in just 11.1 innings of work compared to the bullpen’s 13.2 innings of work and while the ‘pen has yet to surrender an earned run, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows.
For the final segment, Berbari and Kouroupakis talk about James Kaprielian‘s latest injury and the insane attack on top outfield prospect Clint Frazier in regards to the great Mickey Mantle‘s number seven.
