The Yankees are sticking around in the AL East.

There’s lot of sticky substances to discuss as MLB’s crackdown has been a big storyline in baseball this week. It could be helping the Yankees bats, which seem to have come alive. It comes at the perfect time with a pivotal series in Boston against the first-place Red Sox looming this weekend.

To talk about the series ahead, the bats and everything Yankees, we bring you a new episode of the “Pinstripe Pod” with Chris Shearn and Jeff Nelson, featuring a chat with The Post’s Ken Davidoff.

Pinstripe Pod Opening Segment with Chris, Jeff & Jake:

  • YANKEES BATS: Sticky stuff banned, Yankees bats coming alive. Nellie dives into what substances pitchers used back when he played. Batters need to learn to shorten their swing and not swing from their butts. Gleyber Torres is really struggling and is not good at shortstop. Gary Sanchez is hot and needs to be out there every day and not on the bench.
  • CHAPMAN’S STRUGGLES: Crackdown on sticky stuff and his struggles could coincide. Could this just be a slump? Big series ahead against the Red Sox.



Ken Davidoff Interview:
NY Post baseball columnist

  • STICKY STUFF: Umpires checking pitchers, MLB needs a synthetic baseball. Can’t stand writing about the baseball itself.
  • GARY SANCHEZ: Credit to the Yankees for giving him another chance this year.
  • TRADES: Thinks they will add pieces before deadline.
