Yankees/Mets/MLB Pennant Races, NFL News & Notes, US Open
Closing out the month of August in grand style on the latest episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The Yankees broke out the brooms in Baltimore as they swept a four game series vs. the Orioles. In the process, they've made strides in the AL East as they're currently six games back (five in the loss column) of the first place Boston Red Sox. Can the Yankees continue to climb in the standings and catch their archrivals? I'll break down their chances as the Bombers look to inch closer to the top of their division. The Mets have been playing out the string for the last two months, but there are a couple of developing storylines to look out for. Is Jeff McNeil the second baseman of the future? Will Zack Wheeler continue his dominance over the course of the final five weeks of the season? Is the front office 'sold' on these two players? You'll get my thoughts on this and the rest of the MLB landscape as the pennant races heat up as we approach September. I'll also take a look at both the Jets and Giants as they head into their preseason finales on Thursday. Is it a lock that Sam Darnold has won the starting job as Jets QB? Will Saquon Barkley be ready for the season opener against Jacksonville? Those questions and much more about what's taking place throughout the NFL Training Camps. Plus, tennis's final major of the year, the US Open, Urban Meyer's suspension and college football kicks off this weekend. Lots to get into on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 26)
