‘Pinstripe Pod’ Episode 15: Aaron Judge is unstoppable

Pinstripe Pod Episode 15 Yankees podcast Aaron Judge
Robert Sabo

Aaron Judge is a man possessed right now. Home runs are being hit all over the place. After the Yankees swept the Red Sox and won their sixth straight game Sunday, we present to you a brand new episode of the “Pinstripe Pod” with Chris Shearn and four-time World Series champion Jeff Nelson.

Shearn and Nellie open the show reacting to the Yankees’ 9-7 win Sunday night and look at just how bad the Red Sox have been so far, along with the AL East not being very good. They talk about how great Aaron Judge has looked, hitting six homers in the past five games. The guys laugh at Alex Rodriguez’s Judge comparisons on ESPN’s Sunday night broadcast. They discuss his very early MVP chances and how essential him staying healthy is for the Yankees lineup. They also break down the struggles for James Paxton in his first two starts and just how great the Yankees look right now, standing alone as the best team in baseball. As they discuss playing the NL East, I hop in to rant about the Mets’ debacle and Yoenis Cespedes opting out.

NY Post baseball columnist and friend of the program Ken Davidoff then joins Shearn and Nellie. Davidoff talks about how weird it was being in Philadelphia last week when Yankees-Phillies got postponed. He explains why he continues to believe MLB will not make it through the 60-game season, how good Judge is hitting, how weak the AL East looks, Paxton not pitching well and Nick Nelson’s solid showing out of the bullpen.
