Growing up during the most recent Yankees’ dynasty made it seem like dominating the regular season, reaching the postseason and winning the World Series were easy. From 1998 up until Luis Gonzalez’s World Series-winning hit in Game 7 of the 2001 World Series, everything was perfect for the Yankees and a lot of that had to do with the success

Former Yankee and three-time World Series champion Shane Spencer joined me to talk about September 1998, the 1998 World Series against his hometown Padres, Gary Denbo and the Yankees’ minor league staff, the 2001 World Series, playing after 9/11, his success against Curt Schilling, the breakdown of the Flip Play, his relationship with Paul O’Neill, coming up through the minors with the Core Four and how the team changed in 2002.
