Basic Thoughtonomics

I start out recapping a little bit of my trip to Chicago from this past week and then get into the trading deadline for the Mets and the Yankees. While the Mets got Baez i don't think they addressed the more glaring needs with their team which was the rotation and bullpen while the Braves and Phillies upgraded their needs. Yankees get some left-handed power but they're essentially playing to get into the one game wild card. Even if they get into the playoffs how deep of a run can they make?

Basic Thoughtonomics

Nightly recap of all 13 games from June 14th. Good series starting between the top two teams in the AL in the Rays and White Sox. Blue Jays, Red Sox conclude a 4 game series in which Vladdy Jr. just went OFF. Reds and Beermakers start a big series in the AL Central. Mets, Cubbies get a series going. More good pitching, more good ERA'S. We'll see if that changes with the monitoring of the foreign substances going into effect today

Basic Thoughtonomics

For this episode, I'm joined by the great Mets reporter Ed Coleman of WFAN to talk some Mets going into the season. I start out asking him what it was like to cover the bizarre 2020 season (2:20).

For this ep, I (Chris Grosso) recap game 5 between the Yanks and Rays. I give my thoughts on how on the Yanks offense came up short when they had Glasnow on the ropes, the Rays bullpen, Gerrit Cole's outing. And then I touch on some of the offseason decisions the Yankees will have to make. Most importantly will they try to resign LeMahieu and will they try to resign Tanaka, Paxton. I also recap Tanaka's seven year tenure in NY if it does come to an end. Will they go after Trevor Bauer or J.T. Realmuto? I give my personal take on Trevor Bauer after meeting him at MLB Network when I worked there. How would the Yankees have fared if they were to have gotten past the Rays.
