When a Civil War substitute broker told business associates that "Men is cheep here to Day," he exposed an unsettling contradiction at the heart of the Union's war effort. Despite Northerners' devotion to the principles of free labor, the war produced rampant speculation and coercive labor arrangements that many Americans labeled fraudulent. Debates about this contradiction focused on employment agencies called "intelligence offices," institutions of dubious character that nevertheless served the military and domestic necessities of the Union army and Northern households. Northerners condemned labor agents for pocketing fees above and beyond contracts for wages between employers and employees. Yet the transactions these middlemen brokered with vulnerable Irish immigrants, Union soldiers and veterans, former slaves, and Confederate deserters defined the limits of independence in the wage labor economy and clarified who could prosper in it. Men Is Cheap shows that in the process of winning the war, Northerners were forced to grapple with the frauds of free labor. Labor brokers, by helping to staff the Union military and Yankee households, did indispensable work that helped the Northern state and Northern employers emerge victorious. They also gave rise to an economic and political system that enriched the managerial class at the expense of laborers--a reality that resonates to this day. Available here "Men Is Cheap" is published by the University of North Carolina Press.

A great scene at Fenway ends with, well, the end of the Yankee season. It leaves us with two questions: Who gets fired and can the Sox beat the Rays? We answer both. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The Yankees season came to an unceremonious conclusion Tuesday night in Boston, losing to the Red Sox 6-2 in the win or go home American League Wild Card Game, Gerrit Cole failed to make through three innings, Jerry Recco's update furthered the story of the Yankee's demise, the Cowboys are reportedly set to release Jaylon Smith, Knicks win their preseason opener, Kyrie Irving's vaccination status is still an issue, getting to the bottom of A-Rod's qualm with Joey Gallo, Keith Hernandez isn't manager material and phone issues boil over.

Hour 4: Lou Merloni joins and gives his take on tonight's Red Sox vs. Yankee's wild-card game outcome. Curtis and Wiggy go at it after Seth Wickersham calls Bill Belichick a liar. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Matt Vasgersian joins Buster to preview the AL Wild Card Game between the Yankees and Red Sox, the Yankees' distinct pitching advantage, keeping an eye on swings and misses, Rafael Devers and Giancarlo Stanton elevating their teams, if Joey Gallo can change the narrative around his Yankee career, and Joe West retiring after the postseason. Then, Sarah Langs stops by to give her picks for the wild card games, and plays The Numbers Game with notes on Postseason Gerrit Cole, Aaron Judge homering in winner-take-all games, a pair of older pitchers matching up in Dodgers-Cardinals, and a promising stat for Los Angeles.
On today's episode, Nick Zararis is joined by friend of the show Daren Palmer to dissect the Yankee Red Sox wild card game including why Gerrit Cole needs to shine, why Aaron Boone can't be afraid to have a quick hook and why New York is equipped to win this game Audio Credit: Fox Sports
The Yankees did not make it easy. Oh sure, they looked like they might wrap up a Wild Card spot in due time after taking five of six on the road from the division rival Red Sox and Blue Jays. Then, they ran into the Tampa Bay buzzsaw and narrowly avoided a tiebreaker by winning, 1-0, on the season's final day -- thanks in no small part to the pitching staff and Aaron Judge's timely infield single. Now, they'll head right back to Boston for one more game at Fenway Park. With Kunj away, Matt Provenzano filled in again and joined Andrew to both look back on the hectic final week and preview the Wild Card showdown. Gerrit Cole will stare down the Red Sox as the Yankees' offense does its best to mimic its most recent performance against Nathan Eovaldi (and not the previous domination). Will Cole's hamstring cause problems again? Will the offense show up after a tough final series while also being down DJ LeMahieu and Luke Voit? If there's anything that the 2021 Yankees have proved to be true, it's that anything can happen. All we can do is roll the dice and hope that the season's still alive on Thursday at Tropicana Field.

Presidential libraries are tributes to greatness, "[a] self-congratulatory, almost fictional account of someone's achievements, where all the blemishes are hidden," explains one New York architect. But they're also a "weird mix of a historical repository of records and things that have a lot of meaning." Studying their origins and evolution, one can begin to see how presidential libraries have always involved tensions and contradictions.Yankee PyramidsThe premise of using the extreme example of Trump to heighten the contradictions of executive branch norms is what we do on Roman's other podcast What Trump Can Teach Us About Con Law. It's good! And it's not really about Trump, so don't worry. It's essentially a current events based Constitutional Law class taught by an incredible professor, Elizabeth Joh.
