    Audio of Interview with Yankees Beat Reporter Jim Baumbach

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

    Jim was kind enough to give us a plug in his Blog:
    http://weblogs.newsday.com/sports/ba.../yankees/blog/

    It was a late booking, so I didn’t have the chance to solicit questions here as I usually would.

    The interview is 19+ commercial-free minutes of nothing but Yankees talk, and it’s in MP3 format. I hope you enjoy.

    Here is the link to the interview:

    As always, thanks.

    Here is a little write-up of what was discussed (in chronological order):

    --Trade Talk
    --Nationals Assistant GM Bob Boone was scouting the Trenton Thunder game (Phillip Hughes did not pitch in that game)
    --Melky and Wang as trade chips
    --Is Cano an untouchable?
    --JB Cox and Brett Gardner more likely the trade chips
    --Pittsburgh GM is asking the world for Craig Wilson
    --Last year’s Shawn Chacon deal a blueprint
    --All things ARod (in the clutch, whether the booing is deserved, his psyche, is he a symbol of failure until he wins a Championship?)
    --Derek Jeter’s silence on the booing
    --Randy Johnson
    --The Bullpen
    --Ron Villone
    --Octavio Dotel
    --Is Eric Duncan still a prospect?

    good interview, but how come no talk about arod coming through in the clutch on 6/17, 6/18, and 6/20??? also, imo, cano and wang are untouchables. cano has been on an absolute tear and wang seems to have found his rythm from last year, dominating his last three starts. the bullpen needs a major overhaul as well. again, very enjoyable interview, seemed a lot shorter than 19 minutes

    I think the fact that they lost on 6/17 and 6/18 negated the clutch part (at least in terms of public perception).

    With Stienbrenner no one is really safe from being traded. If he wants a certain player he'll go through hell and high water to get him.

    that's true. it seems like people look for an excuse to put down arod. and then when he comes through, it's ignored. i can't understand the hatred people have for arod. not just met and red sox fans but even yankee fans seem to ignore when he comes through.
