Yankees Talk from Tampa with Beat Writer Jim Baumbach

Postby patchyfogg » Wed Feb 22, 2006 5:01 pm

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
