Podcast 238: Yankees Opener Plan Backfires in Game 2 Loss To Rays

On this episode of the Pinstriped Prospects Podcast, Ricky Keeler and James O’ Connell dissect the New York Yankees’ 7-5 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays that evens the series at one game apiece. They give their thoughts on the plan to use Deivi Garcia as an opener and not J.A. Happ, talk great things about Giancarlo Stanton, review the bad strike zone by C.B. Bucknor behind the plate, and discuss some key lineup changes going into Game 3 on Wednesday involving Gary Sanchez and who should start in left field between Clint Frazier and Brett Gardner?

Plus, they breakdown the pitching matchup that will be Charlie Morton for the Rays against Masahiro Tanaka for the Yankees (7:10 p.m ET, TBS).
