The Yankees are getting Juan Soto but he will be a free agent at the end of next season. Mets fans think they will sign him after his one year with the Yankees. This also means Steve Cohen will have to go all in on Yamamoto as he can’t lose out to the Yankees on this one. He can’t have the Yankees signing Soto and Yamamoto in the same offseason. Soto is only 25 years old and he played in every single game last season. C-Lo is in for Jerry and is here for his first update but first we talked about the Holiday party Audacy had in the cafeteria yesterday. C-Lo has audio from the Padres GM commenting on the Yankees deal saying they were ‘aggressive’. The Mets met with Yamamoto last week and the Yankees will meet with him Monday. Rob Saleh talked about why they’re going back to Zach Wilson on Sunday. In the final segment of the hour, Gio said there can’t be a single Yankees fan who thinks they gave up too much for Soto. If the Mets don’t get Yamamoto, Steve Cohen is going to look like the little brother. Boomer said it smells like stinky cheese in the break room where the party was yesterday. Even the Cashman haters have to love this deal.
Gio thinks Rob Saleh did a good job of deflecting for the first time this season. He said he likes Benigno and wouldn’t give any more details and he just moved on. At least he didn’t create any extra controversy in a week full of Jets controversy. C-Lo returns for an update and starts with all the details on the Juan Soto trade to the Yankees. The Padres had to cut salary and they did just that. Rob Saleh talked about going back to Zach Wilson. Boomer hopes Zach comes out with a chip on his shoulder and plays pissed off. Saleh also said he ‘loves Joe B’ and he’s moving on. In the final segment of the hour, Mike McCarthy had his appendix removed yesterday, but he’ll be coaching Sunday against the Eagles. Being an NFL Head Coach is not a healthy lifestyle, which is why Saleh runs the stairs at the stadium. A caller wants Saleh fired as a ‘Christmas miracle’, but the only thing that will get you is Nathaniel Hackett as Head Coach.
The over/under for tonight’s Patriots/Steelers game is 30.5, the lowest in the NFL in 30 years. A caller said Tommy DeVito took his shot with Dua Lipa and Gio is all for it. A caller said DeVito isn’t man enough for Dua Lipa since he lives at home. C-Lo returns for an update and talks about potential Yankees lineups with Juan Soto in the mix. A caller wonders if Soto will be able to grab his crotch while on the Yankees. Shaun Morash had some suggestions for John Sterling’s HR call for Soto. C-Lo has audio from Shannon Sharpe and Ochocinco’s podcast. Ocho thinks hotels charge for using the heat. A Jaguars employee in the finance department ripped them off for $22 million. Jerry Recco slipped during the Rutgers game and said ‘dick’ instead of ‘deck’. In the final segment of the hour, there’s a french coffee shop near the station that is always packed. Bars are now reserving seats at the bar. That’s not right.
The Yankees landed Juan Soto yesterday. Is Yomamoto next? Gio thinks the Yankees offer will get it done. Judge and Soto can be what Judge and Stanton were supposed to be. The Yankees better deliver after this trade, as we’ve seen too many local teams sign a big name and do nothing. A caller said Boomer’s rookie card is on Ebay for $10K. That card only goes for $600 so that person is crazy. C-Lo returns for his final update and starts with the Juan Soto deal for the Yankees. Boomer wonders if Aaron Judge and Gerrit Cole were involved with the dealings. Yanks will meet with Yamamoto on Monday. The Moment of The Day involves Joe Benigno and ‘new fangled smartphones’. Gio wonders why we lose the hair on our heads but then grow hair in all odd places like our ears and shoulders. Adult porn star Dillion Harper corrects us on the pronunciation of her name on Twitter.
