On this week’s episode of the Daily News Sports Talk Podcast we welcome baseball columnist Anthony McCarron to the show to help make sense of the bizzaro world we live in now where the Mets continue to be trade-deadline buyers while the Yankees are the sellers.
With Bombers GM Brian Cashman getting so much praise for dealing away Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller and Carlos Beltran to re-stock the farm system, we ask Anthony if Cashman also deserves heat for building a team that had the Yankees in this position to begin with.
McCarron also gives us his scouting report on the top new prospects in the organization (Clint Frazier, Justus Sheffield and Gleyber Torres) and how ready the Yankee faithful are to embrace watching a bunch of youngsters at the Stadium.
We also get McCarron’s take on what the Yankees should do with A-Rod given all the speculation the slumping slugger might be handed his walking papers soon.
Switching gears, McCarron breaks down the Mets acquisition of slugging outfielder Jay Bruce and answers the question did Sandy Alderson do enough to spark the dismal offense in Flushing for the stretch drive.
