Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. issued a letter to MLB, Nike and the Yankees’ front office last week after he learned of a stipulation in the new Nike/MLB apparel deal that could severely impact small businesses on River Ave. BP Diaz Jr. calls in to the podcast this week to explain his letter, respond to the Yankees’ letter and reveal his hopes for both the outcome and the team’s relationship with the borough.
Yankees Universe was a bit up-in-arms over recent light-hearted comments from TV host, comedian and Mets fan John Oliver during a recent Mets game on PIX11. We’ll run back those comments, plus explain Oliver’s recent history with the Yankees (and yours truly) in this episode.
Also, I sold a ticket on the Gametime app for the first time this past weekend – we’ll chat about that and some of the new merchandise hitting the field over the next few weeks.
Finally – a few thoughts this week on the Fanatics acquisition of Steiner Sports’ inventory and what it means for Yankee collectors moving forward.
