The Yankees have announced their probable rotation for the ALCS and to Boomer and Craig’s surprise (Craig’s disgust) the much maligned AJ Burnett is scheduled to pitch Game 4 in the Bronx.  As a ‘Yankee Fan’ himself, Craig does not like this news one little bit.  He and Boomer broke down the pros and cons of having Burnett pitch rather than giving the ball to CC Sabathia on short rest.  Then Craig voiced his displeasure with the Knicks, who saw their super-star free-agent pick-up Amare Stoudemire make his Madison Square Garden debut last night in a preseason game against the Celtics.  The Knicks lost, which is a mere footnote to the story, Craig was not happy that Mike D’Antoni opted not to play Stoudemire in the 4th quarter despite scoring 30 points, mind you it was a preseason game.  Then Boomer filled us in on the strange dream he had last night that did not involve a naked Craig feeding him grapes, but rather a speech from talking to from Rex Ryan…

Boomer has jumped on the Yankee Bandwagon with two feet; he is part of the ‘Thank God for the Yankees Church’ and is even wearing his TGFTY bracelet with pride.  Today he took it one step further and was wearing New York Yankees Mickey Mantle jersey, which Craig mocked him for.  After that was over Jerry tried to deliver an update but was routinely interrupted by Boomer telling us all about nipples…

It looks like our boy Fo Onassis has a little competition in the Yankees song game, because today we gave a listen to another song sent to us by a listener that pays homage to the Bronx Bombers.  The artist goes by the name of G-Fella, give a listen below to hear what he brings to the table…

After hearing a sound bite from AJ Burnett, Craig thought he sounded an awful lot like Sylvester Stallone.  With the Italian Stallion on his mind, Craig broke into character…

Bernie Williams played for the Yankees his entire 16 year career (he has not technically retired yet) and these days he is a critically acclaimed musician.  He joined the guys in-studio this morning to talk a little baseball and play a little music.  Craig helped out on the bongos and Al with the vocals…’Radio Gold’ my friends, ‘Radio Gold’…

With the MLB playoffs in full swing, Al booked Ron Darling to join the guys to break it all down.  Darling of course calls regular season Mets games SNY and for the playoffs he is working as an analyst for TBS.  The guys asked him about the Yankees scheduled pitching rotation among other things and Craig even got Ron to allude to the fact that the TBS pitch-track is useless…

Jerry looked a little outside of the box if you will, when he selected today’s highly anticipated Moment of the Day.  Jerry generally does not select live commercial reads, but when Bernie Williams is providing the music and Craig is adlibbing a YES tune, I’d say the folks over at Pine Belt Chevy didn’t mind…
