IIATMS Podcast Episode 42: New York Yankees Hot Stove Heats Up

With the Yankees wheelin' and dealin', E.J. and I decided it was time to revive the podcast. We discussed the Jose Pirela/Ronald Herrera and John Ryan Murphy/Aaron Hicks deals, the Brett Gardner and Andrew Miller rumors, and the possible trickle down effects that all of this could have. We also stepped outside of #YankeesOnly land a bit, and talked about the Andrelton Simmons pseudo-blockbuster, and New York State's newfound stance on FanDuel and DraftKings. Enjoy!

IIATMS Podcast Episode 37: Are the Yankees Good?

No, you are not seeing things... we actually recorded a podcast last night! Domenic, E.J. and yours truly were able to set aside some time and talk Yankees baseball! I know, can you believe it? We hadn't done one of these since Opening Day so we went a tad long - understandably - and things got a tad punchy toward the end. Okay, fine, I got punchy at the end. You'll find out about what (or more to the point about whom) when you listen.

We touched upon how the Yankees have done in the 112 games since we recorded the last podcast, we talked David Cone, Alex Rodriguez, Luis Severino, #GREGBIRD, and much, much more.

So sit back, relax, grab something to eat and drink and enjoy. Also, excuse my language.

As usual, if you have questions for the next podcast which we are planning on recording next week, leave them below, tweet us @domeniclanza, @ejfagan and @StaceGots, or tweet the main account @IIATMS.

Coming Soon: The IIATMS Podcast Strikes Back

That's right, folks. Stacey, EJ, and I will be back in your ears and in your hearts in the not-so-distant future. We are hoping to record this coming Monday - and we need your help. With so much time having passed since the last time we recorded, there is a significant amount of ground that needs to be covered. We've had streaks of the winning and losing variety, injuries aplenty, and a slew of surprising performances (good and bad), and we want to tackle as much of it as possible. Instead of jumping right in, however, we're asking our loyal readers and listeners to chip in with questions, all of which we shall do our best to answer. That way, we can distill our thoughts into a semi-coherent, quasi-linear fashion.

If you would like to contribute (and become very famous), you can submit your questions in three ways: 1. Right here, in this very post, in the comments section; 2. Via e-mail, at stupidyankeespodcast@gmail.com; and/or 3. Via Twitter, at @DomenicLanza, @StaceGots, and/or @ejfagan.

So what are you waiting for?

IIATMS Episode 31: World Series, Yankee Coaching and Front Office, 2015 Infield

Guess who's back? (After some technical difficulties) That's right, Domenic, EJ, and yours truly actually recorded a podcast last night! We discussed the improbable World Series matchup and revealed who we were rooting for to win said matchup. (And we'll never be... you know the rest) We also talked about the changes that have happened this past week or so within the Yankees organization, whether those changes were warranted or not and EJ and Domenic talked about what the Yankees infield could look like in 2015 and beyond while I listened intently.

Here's a direct download link to the entire podcast.

And here is a diagram we mention during the World Series discussion. Don't click on it until we get to it in the podcast. We want your mind to be blown like ours were while we were recording. Think of it as listener participation.

As usual, you can tweet all three of us (@domeniclanza, @ejfagan, @stacegots) with questions and/or suggestions or leave them in the comments below.

IIATMS Podcast Episode 30: Past, Present, and Future

Domenic, Stacey, and the resurrected E.J. deliberate the fate of Brian Cashman, prognosticate the rest of the season and the upcoming off-season, begin to scratch the surface of the farm system, and reminisce (at least a little bit) about Derek Jeter.

And, as promised, here is the glorious sequence of errors from the Dodgers-Padres game earlier this week. I suggest that you open this musical number in a background tab and let the entire experience enfold you.

Keep the question coming! Tweet us @DomenicLanza, @StaceGots, and @ejfagan.

Coming Soon: The All Questions Answered Podcast

Hosting this blog's podcast is far and away my favorite part of writing for It's About the Money, as it gives me an opportunity not only to riff freely on anything and everything in the world of baseball with some of the most knowledgeable Yankees fans around, but a chance to interact with our equally intelligent listeners and readers. As the podcast has become more and more engrained with the blog, we have garnered more and more questions and thoughts from our audience, and those comments have become essential to our agenda. And for that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. And now, it's time for an episode of the podcast that is all about you.

We will be podcasting on Thursday, July 31, after the smoke has cleared from the trade deadline - and we want to hear from you. The goal is to have an episode almost entirely dedicated to answering listener questions, sprinkled with whatever noteworthy news develops in the interim. Anything is fair game - inquire about the trade deadline (what they did or didn't do, what they should have done), the farm system, or the past, present, or future of the team. We shall do our best to answer each and every one of these questions intelligently, or with enough snark to hide our lack of knowledge on the subject.

All that I ask is that you have your questions in by 5 PM EST on Thursday, so that we have time to adequately prepare our answers.

You can ask questions in one of two ways: leave it here, in the comments, or ask me on Twitter, @DomenicLanza. I look forward to hearing from you!
