    The offseason rumor mill continues to chug along, as the Yankees are still reportedly talking to the camps of both Carlos Correa and Corey Seager. In recent news however, Correa made some harsh comments towards Derek Jeter's defensive career, claiming Jeter did not deserve any of the Gold Glove awards he won. Understandably, many Yankee fans took exception to his quote and started to question whether Correa's villainous persona is something they want on the team. We also find out how desperate teams are during this year's pitching market, with Justin Verlander returning to Houston on a massive 1-year/$25 million gamble from the Astros, and the Angels signing Noah Syndergaard to a 1-year/$21 million dollar deal. Brett Gardner also reportedly wants to play again in 2022, making us seriously doubt that we'll ever get rid of this man from our lives. We also discuss the recent awards season, debating whether or not it was a good thing that Cole was snubbed for AL Cy Young and what it truly means to be an "MVP" of the league. Finally, we thought it'd be appropriate to comment on a certain Twitter "reporter" that got outed for sharing fake Matt Olson trade rumors in hilarious fashion, hopefully he never makes a resurgence.

    We've got a big week of Yankees storylines to filter through on the show. Brett Gardner is now officially a free agent and someone actually decided to pay Andrew Heaney $8.5 million to pitch for them in 2022. The Matt Olson trade rumors are heating up big time as the Yankees debate who should be manning first base next season. Brian Cashman talked to reporters at the GM Meetings and shared lots of info including the fact that he's already contacted two free agent shortstops agents (Correa & Seager). Who do you want? We further debate. The Yankees also had scouts at Justin Verlander's showcase and have reported interest. Luis Rojas is expected to become the Yankees next 3rd base coach with Eric Chavez also being interviewed for a position. Tommy learns what dryer sheets are as well.

    To celebrate hitting 300 episodes of the podcast, we brought back one of our all-time favorite guests on the show: Joba Chamberlain! We talk with him about the Braves' World Series victory and what he thinks of the current and future landscape of baseball. He shares with us from his perspective what it was like to win a World Series title and the crazy days that followed. We also ask him about his thoughts on this current Yankees team and get some great stories about his time spent playing with veteran guys like Jeter and Arod. Finally, we wrap up the show with a long discussion on whether or not chocolate is considered candy, because we only focus on the most important issues on this show, of course.

Meanwhile in the Yankees newsphere, according to a recent tweet from Bob Klapisch, Anthony Rizzo is reportedly eager to return to the Yankees in 2022. Question is, do we want Rizzo back or should the team look to trade for Matt Olson? Klapish also made headlines calling out the superstitious habits of Joey Gallo, which some fans thought went too far. We also discuss the recent drama between Gardy and Cole following a prank that Cole did not take kindly to. After putting it off for a few weeks, we tally up the final results of our regular season predictions to see who owes the gang dinner.

Giancarlo didn't play the outfield this weekend because the Yankees don't care about the regular season. Hubbs has a theory about sleep and Trevor Bauer stinks. Plus Tommy now has a dog and is a grill master? Outro Song: "In Trouble” (Via APM Music Library)

    With tons of scrutiny and controversy surrounding our ace, angry Gerrit Cole showed up in Minnesota and shut up Josh Donaldson. Cole threw the hardest he's ever thrown in his career as he answered the bell and helped the Yanks get another win in Minnesota. The bats are cooking and it's refreshing to watch. The guys discuss how Andujar needs to play everyday and how Gary needs more playing time given how hot he currently is. Yankee Stadium is finally increasing their capacity almost back to full strength and we're ecstatic. Pete Alonso has a wild conspiracy about the jucied/deaded baseballs and we debate how many people have seen the movie The Wizard of Oz. Outro Song: "Got a Feeling” (Via APM Music Library)

    Rock bottom reached a new low as the Yankees were swept by the Red Sox at home this weekend. Boone refused to get ejected Sunday Night despite the Yankees suffering from one of the worst strike 3 call you'll ever see that sent the game into extras. Phil Nevin and Marcus Thames lost their minds, but our manager did nothing as usual. Boone also believes hitting into double plays is a thing a good team does. That's a real quote. DJ LeMahieu's struggles continue to mount. No one can hit besides Judge really and Gleyber in the clutch. Stanton sat on Sunday after Boone promised he would play the entire series. Jamo was pretty good on Saturday but fell victim to no run support. Hubbs rants about the Altuve chants at the stadium. Luis Severino made a rehab start and was pretty good! All that and more on this therapeutic episode of The Short Porch. Outro Song: "Run to You” (Via APM Music Library)

    After Monday’s 4th straight loss the Yankees woke up and managed to split their 4 game series with the Rays. Clint Frazier and Miguel Andujar are really starting to hit. Montgomery turned in another good start. Of course the base running issues continue to make us wanna lose our minds and that falls on Boone. Aaron Judge played CF, we talk about how much that worries us. The Mets have gone to 90% fully vaccinated sections while the Yankees do nothing as the Red Sox come to town. Boone got ejected but it was horrible timing. Nick Nelson shouldn’t be in the big leagues. Gardner kinda stuck it to Hubbs but still sucks. Oh and Hubbs almost made Tommy orgasm with a stat that will blow your mind. Outro Song: "Having the Time of My Life” (Via APM Music Library)

    The Yankees were swept by the Tigers. Not even sure how that’s possible. They’ve scored 3 runs or less in 30 games this year which has only been done by the Pirates. Everything is bad and Boone gives us the same crap again. No one hits. No one has life. We’re all sad. Outro Song: "Here With You” (Via APM Music Library)

    Fresh off his no-hitter, Corey Kluber is headed to the IL for months. Luke Voit follows him after straining his oblique. At least the Knicks won a playoff game so we start the show with that. Otherwise we’re trying to spin zone the injuries. Get ready for a lot of Mike King, Deivi, Ford, Andujar, and maybe Gittens. Clint is showing signs of life which would be helpful and Stanton is ready to come off the IL on Friday. The injuries have arrived, let’s buckle up. Also, what is Tommy’s night out like these days and how does he plan to attack this summer. Outro Song: "Higher” (Via APM Music Library)

    The Yankees starting pitchers have now thrown 35 consecutive scoreless innings of baseball. Not too bad for a group that was labeled bums by White Sox Dave earlier this year. Montgomery twirled the game of his life on Friday night and the Yankees turned a triple play out of their ass. Great defense all weekend by the boys. Aaron Judge picked up his first ever walk off on Sunday as Liam Hendriks wanted nothing to do with throwing strikes. Great sweep for the Bronx Bombers as they’ve now won 17 of their last 22 games. We’re feeling good. Also Go Knicks. Outro Song: "Let's Go” (Via APM Music Library)

    The Yankees take 3 of 4 in Texas to cap off a 7-3 road trip. They’ve won 6 straight series behind some excellent starting pitching from Kluber and Domingo. Is Aroldis Chapman a serious Cy Young candidate? We ask again, is Gio the guy you want up at the plate with the game on the line. The answer might be obvious now. The Yankees OF is depleted and we scroll through the list of available targets they should go after. The Texas Rangers camera angle is stupid and is the reason Gerrit Cole struggled on Monday. We tackle how stupid it is that MSG is going to 75% capacity while the Yankees are stuck at 33%. Also our excitement for the upcoming 6-part Jeter documentary coming out next year. And lastly we rip apart Tony La Russa, although Tommy thinks he might be good for baseball in a weird backwards way. All that and more on today’s Short Porch.

    The Yankees won another series this weekend, taking 2 of 3 over the Orioles. Sunday’s game was a bit of a mess and left us with a sour taste in our mouth, but a series victory is a series victory. Gleyber has covid and Hicks is on the IL with a wrist injury while Stanton sits with quad tightness so we’re not exactly all sunshine and roses. Hubbs rants on Tyler Wade for a bit after Sunday Night Baseball gave him some shine. Aaron Judge might be back to 2017 form and it’s very appreciated. TJ went to the Trop with Tank and Duggs and talked about his experience in that hell hole. We’re onto Texas. Outro Song: “The Music Makes Me Dance” (Via APM Music Library)

    Gerrit Cole murdered the Rays on Wednesday night, completely dismantling them while on the mound. The Yankees also got a great start from Jordan Montgomery and have won a series at the Trop for the first time in 2 years. The team is also dealing with a covid outbreak among the coaching staff so there’s that. We discuss in depth the pronunciation of the letter “o” and Tommy forgets what rhyming is for a second. Also does Marty have any friends outside Barstool. We also have a great interview with Yankees pitcher Mike King. The Yankees are 20-16 and closing in on 1st place. Enjoy the episode.
