    Yankees Talk from Tampa

    We had Newsday’s Yankees beat writer Jim Baumbach on live with us from Tampa last night on my 100% commercial-free, no one makes a dime from it, Long Island Sports Talk radio show.

    Please go here for the interview:

    For some reason, there was a tremendous amount of static in the area that was going to be picked up by the sound board, so I had the decrease my mic’s input into the board. As a result, you might not clearly hear my question but Jim (which is the most important thing) and my co-host can be heard loud and clear. If you were listening over the air, you could hear me fine, as well. So, I’ve provided a list of topics discussed in the 33 commercial-free minute interview (in chronological order) as a guide:

    --Jim (and Sweeney Murti) being hit by George Steinbrenner’s golf cart
    --ARod and the Dominican/US saga
    --Mike Mussina
    --Jason Giambi’s weight
    --The Yankees and the World Baseball Classic
    --Mel Stottlemyre being back in Camp
    --Bernie Williams
    --Randy & Posada
    --Carl Pavano
    --Jaret Wright
    --Aaron Small (Jim calls him the nicest person he has ever met in baseball.)
    --Scott Erickson
    --Randy’s propensity to announce his stats
    --Andy Phillips/Kelly Stinnett/Ben Davis
    --A discussion on how the roster is basically already settled
    --Tino Martinez as an analyst
    --Larry Bowa
    --Joe Torre
    --Lou Piniella
    --Hideki Matsui
    --Gary Sheffield
    --The Yankees having a Japanese media advisor
    --A discussion of writers’ access to players during Spring Training, and why so many of the stories seem to be the same across different newspapers on the same day.
    --A discussion on whether any young players could surprisingly make the team, ala Cano and Wang
    --Cano and the WBC
    --The Arod/Jeter relationship
    --A discussion of how Jim uses the nighttime to catch up on non-baseball news (we had joked that we were keeping him from Larry King Live). Jim said that one unnamed Yankee thought that Dick Cheney was a Congressman.
    --The weather in Tampa


    As always, I hope you enjoy. Happy downloading!

    Pavano's out for awhile, right? (his back?)

    Well, Pavano's back injury should only keep him out for a week to 10 days, which means that he's probably out until August.

    Exactly. And, if you've ever heard any of our interviews with Jim Baumbach, it would seem that his teammates are not big fans of his.

    Understandably so. I don't think his teammates respect the fact that he took half a year off when no doctor could find out what was wrong with Mrs. Pavano.
