Bronx Banter Breakdown on the Yanks’ pitching


Last week, Alex Belth of Bronx Banter fame asked me to join him and Cliff Corcoran on his SportsNet NY web-only video series Bronx Banter Breakdown. In the first installment of three, we discussed the Yankee pitching staff and what the team has to do on the mound to repeat. You can watch the video here on or embedded below.

  1. Mike Axisa says:

    Phase 1: YES
    Phase 2: SNY
    Phase 3: ?
    Phase 4: Profit!

  2. Why was Ben always being asked to be Mr Negative? Was it supposed to a point-counterpoint thing?

  3. iYankees says:

    Ben killed it. Nice work, man.

  4. If anyone is wondering, after spending so much time in the SNY studio, Ben ran home and immediately showered to get all that icky Mets-iness off of him.

  5. Feiter says:

    very nice ben way to rock it, so when do you guys get the call from espn to be on baseball tonight?

  6. Cecala says:

    Good job, between this and your appearances from SAS, you have been getting a lot of media time lately. This will definitely help the website with all this recent promotion. Great Job, keep it up and don’t let the fame go to your head like all the ESPNers…

  7. baseballnation says:

    Somewhere, in a land far far away from here (Toronto to be exact,) Drake is penning his next hit dedicated to the level of awesomeness Ben has right now!

  8. Nice job, Ben. I’m a bit surprised no one mentioned the depth (or lack thereof) of the rotation. It could have been Mitre, Gaudin, Joba. Now it’s…Mitre.

    • Bo says:

      Nova, Aceves, McAll all chopped liver?

      • pete says:

        At this point, yeah pretty much.

        Ace has got a bad back and JoeG luuuurrrves him in the bullpen and Nova is pretty much Michael Bowden with a better tan.

        McAllister will be interesting to watch – he’s my darkhorse candidate to take Hughes’s spot in the rotation down the stretch when he reaches around 160 innings (Hughes will then go to the pen, methinks) – but if he doesn’t develop a quality out pitch then I dunno if I’d call him much better than “chopped liver” in the rotation.

        Speaking of ZacMac, Mike do you think that Justin Masterson would be a good comp? Tall, great pitcher’s body, solid moving FB, good command, not much else?
