Bryce's 13 Year Marriage with Philadelphia, MLB's Remaining Free Agents, Witten's 'Un'-Retirement, Tavares Long Island Nightmare. Plus, Lakers/Celtics Misery
We move full steam ahead into the month of March with all that’s going on in the world of sports on the latest edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The Philadelphia Phillies have won the Bryce Harper sweepstakes with a record setting 13 year, $330 million dollar contract, but is this REALLY the place he wanted to play? I’ll get into every nook and cranny about what his signing means for the Phillies, the NL East and his legacy that you won’t want to miss. I’ll also talk about some other key free agents that are out there for the taking as we’re one week into spring training throughout the MLB. Jason Witten has made news by coming back to play for the only organization that he’s known in the Dallas Cowboys, leaving his Monday Night Football gig at ESPN. Has the year off reinvigorated the former All-Pro tight end? I’ll share my thoughts on what his return to the ‘Boys means and if the bad press of becoming a commentator was one of the reasons for ‘un-retiring’. I’ll also have more on the Antonio Brown fallout in Pittsburgh in regards to recent comments on ESPN. Is he not to blame for what went on in the final weeks of the season? What teams are rumored to be in the running for the soon to be former Steelers WR. Lots to discuss regarding those questions and others around the NFL. Former Islander captain, John Tavares was Public Enemy #1 this past Thursday on Long Island. More importantly, the Islanders are in the midst of a big five game homestand against their toughest competitors in the East, in which they let down the last couple of games including to the surging Washington Capitals. I’ll recap what was a wild scene at the old barn and take the pulse of the blue and orange as they head into the final month of the NHL season with the slimmest of margins at the top of the standings. Including, calling out an old Ranger (Sean Avery) who had some not so nice things to say about the Islanders in the wake of Tavares’s homecoming. Plus, all that’s happening throughout the NBA, College Basketball and much more on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 57)
