Erik Malinowski (@erikmal) joined Kenny Ducey and Anthony Pucik on this week's edition of One on One to discuss the Yankees and Mets at the trade deadline, Derek Jeter's final All-Star Game, and more.
Days after the NHL trade deadline, Nolan and Anthony talked with MSG's Sam Rosen, the television voice of the New York Rangers.
First, Sam discussed the what the loss of Ryan Callahan meant to the Rangers and why exactly a deal was not reached. He also talked about Martin St. Louis, what he brings to the Rangers from the Lightning and how New York's offense has improved as a result of him being in the lineup.
Anthony Pucik, Kris Venezia and Marelle Cerven talk all the deals from Wednesday's NHL trade deadline and what they mean for teams in the playoff hunt. Also, Anthony talks with Kenny Albert, the radio voice of the New York Rangers, about one of the biggest trades on deadline day: Martin St. Louis to the Rangers in exchange for Ryan Callahan.
The guys take your calls on the Yankees recent trouble and their trade for Casey McGehee, and also hear from disappointed Mets fans. They also discuss other trades made at Monday's deadline, including the firesale of the Miami Marlins and the state of the Diamondbacks after they kept Justin Upton.
On Tuesday morning, it seemed unlikely the Yankees would pull the trigger on a deal before the 4 PM non-waiver deadline. However as 3:56 rolled around, it looked like they were about to make a trade - for Ryan Dempster. However when the dust had settled at 4:01, it was Casey McGehee of the Pirates who was sent to the Bombers - for reliever Chad Qualls. Texas, instead, landed Dempster.
Would the Yankees have been better off trading for Dempster and sticking with Nix and Chavez at 3B? Or does the fact that McGehee plays 1B and 3B give the Yankees much-needed depth?
The venerable Tim Kurkjian took a little chunk out of his busy day to talk to WFUV hosts Ricky Cibrano and Mack Rosenberg about the biggest winners and losers in the wake of the trade deadline.
