The Overthinking Of October Baseball, Mets Next Manager Is? Two Unbeaten Teams Left & Other NFL Week 5 Storylines

CORRECTION: The NHL Carolina Hurricanes are off to an 3-0 start, not the Columbus Blue Jackets. My apologies for the faux pas.

The first podcast of October (Episode 94) will be sure to whet your sports appetite. Here’s what’s on deck:

The MLB postseason has been littered with highly questionable moves by managers when it comes to their starters and bullpen. I’ll discuss why overthinking has ruined some of these playoff games to date. I’ll also delve into these Division Series games in the AL/NL and my experience at Yankee Stadium as I was present for Game 1 vs. Minnesota. My beloved Mets made an unsurprising move as they’ve fired now former skipper, Mickey Callaway. What’s the plan for the front office as they’re looking to make a ‘splash’ in searching for their man to lead this team to the promised land? You know I’ll put in my two cents on this topic.

NFL Week 5 was pretty ho-hum, although you got an upset in Kansas City which now leaves us with only two unbeaten teams in the league (maybe one, after tonight’s Monday night matchup in San Francisco) I’ll check in on some of the big storylines of this past week and recap a tough loss for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

I’ll also chime in on the latest in college football, the NHL, my Hero and Zero of the Week and a programming note that you won’t want to miss.

The Hunt For Red October/MLB Postseason Preview, Trolling Yankee Fans. Mets: Is Mickey Out? NFL WK 4 Takeaways. NHL '19-'20, Kyrie's 'I Failed' Comment

Closing out the month of September in grand fashion as Episode 93 will not disappoint when it comes what I have to say about what’s happening in the world of sports. On deck:

The MLB Postseason begins with the NL & AL Wild Card games on Tuesday and Wednesday. I’ll tell you who’ll move on to face the Dodgers and Astros respectively. I’ll also take an early look into the Division Series to preview what lies ahead for the Cardinals-Braves and Twins-Yankees. Plus, I have a message for Yankee fans out there, who had a few things to say about Pete Alonso breaking Aaron Judge’s rookie home run record from two years ago. You WON’T want to miss that! I’ll share a couple of thoughts about the Mets closing out their season in dramatic fashion and the future of Mickey Callaway as manager of the team.

NFL Week 4 was another crazy, unpredictable week if you’re in Tampa or LA (Rams), Cleveland, Oakland and Carolina. I’ll get into the top storylines of the week, look ahead to Week 5 and I’m still alive in my knockout pool as I’ll have a prediction for you as well.

The NHL & NBA seasons are upon us. The puck drops around the league on Wednesday as I’ll chime in on a few things, including my Stanley Cup prediction. And media day took place last week, with Brooklyn Nets G Kyrie Irving had a few interesting things to say about his former club in Boston.

I’ll have all of that and my Hero and Zero of the Week.

MLB Homestretch (AL/NL Wild Card Update) Yanks Prepare For Playoffs, NFL WK 3 Storylines (Daniel Jones, Minkah To PIT, 3-0 vs. 0-3, NBA Envy for NFL Players?) NBA Tampering Measures

Autumn has arrived! With that, a new episode (#92) that's chock full of sports talk. On deck:

We’re down to the final week of the baseball season. I’ll recap what’s happening in both the AL/NL Wild Card races. Will there be a play in game for CLE/TB? What happened to the Cubs? Mets still alive…barely. Also, has Mickey Callaway saved his job for 2020? What about expectations for next year regarding the Amazins? Then there are the Yankees, as they  have clinched their first division in seven years. Upon their celebration, word came down that a key contributor will not be on the team come October. I'll discuss what affect that may have on the team and the roster as they complete the final week of the regular season. I’ll add in a CC Sabathia for the Hall of Fame debate in there as well.

NFL Week 3 was so-so, but there are a couple of storylines to sink your teeth into.  The Daniel Jones era is off to a resounding start with the Giants. How I compare this first game to, dare I say, Michael Jordan’s NCAA Championship win at North Carolina. I’ll explore the career of Eli Manning and whether or not he’s destined for Canton, OH at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I’ll discuss the big trade in Pittsburgh as Minkah Fitzpatrick comes north as a #1 pick for next year goes south to Miami. The 3-0 teams vs. the 0-3 teams. As well as, are NFL players adopting the 'NBA player empowerment' mentality as a way to get their demands met?

Speaking of the NBA, I’ll share my thoughts on the latest measures to stop tampering from running rampant throughout the league moving forward. Plus, my Hero and Zero of the Week.

NFL Week 2 Storylines (Officiating, Bold Two Pt. Conversions) Big Ben Done for '19, Mets On Life Support AGAIN, Pete Alonso's Ascent, MLB Wild Card Update, US Men's Basketball Disappointment

From last weeks' angry podcast to a somber one this week on Episode 91. On deck is the following:

Another wild and wacky NFL as Week 2 delivers lots of juicy storylines, including: The officiating throughout the league (another bad call for the Saints, Broncos hit with penalties in loss to the Bears) Losses at QB in New Orleans and Pittsburgh. Bold two point conversions. Ben Roethlisberger done for the season. How will his backup, Mason Rudolph, fare in getting a ton of the playing time? And much more as I go around the league.

The Mets playoff hopes are hanging by a thread with 13 games to go as they trail by four games in the NL Wild Card race. Can they pull off a miracle and make it to October? I'll explain why Pete Alonso is the future of this team and what should've been for a former Met who received early accolades, but never panned out to what we thought he'd become. Also, an up to the minute AL/NL Wild Card update and the hunt for baseballs' best record is on the line between the Yankees, Astros and Dodgers.

The US Men's Basketball team took a big hit in the FIBA World Cup as they finished in seventh place for the tournament. Is this cause for concern with the Olympics slated for next summer? I'll get into that, plus my Hero and Zero of the Week.

The 'Not Too High or Too Low' Theme From NFL Week 1, Except? Steelers 'Not Ready For Primetime', Mets 'Not Ready For Postseason' Tirades, MLB Wild Card Latest, Rafa Wins, Serena Loses AGAIN at US Open

I'm in a feisty, awful sports mood, so hide the women and children, because Episode 90 promises to be full of smoke and fire. On deck:

In fourteen NFL cities this morning, either they're setting up the Super Bowl parade route or ready to draft for the number one pick. But there are two excpetions. I'll explain. I'll also go around the league and assess the damage up in Foxborough as the Steelers no showed vs. the Patriots.

The Mets have put their postseason hopes in the trash after a brutal loss in Washington and losing two out of three vs. Philadelphia. Mickey Callaway may have seen his managerial position go out the window with some very questionable moves this week. I have plenty of ammunition on this and I'll also recap the latest in the AL & NL Wild Card races.

Rafael Nadal has inched closer in his quest to catch Roger Federer for most Mens' Grand Slam titles. Serena Williams has now lost back to back Wimbledon and US Open Finals as she's stuck on 23 Grand Slam victories. Hear my take on both legendary figures and what may lie ahead in 2020 now that the Tennis Slams are done for the year.

Plus, my Hero and Zero of the Week.

September has arrived, new beginnings on the horizon as we sink our teeth into Episode 88 of this latest sports talk party. On deck:

Episode 85 packs a short but powerful punch on the latest edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast.

The Mets are riding high after a successful homestand, capped by two unlikely wins vs. the Nationals.

The NFL has completed their first go round of exhibition games. Hear what I have to say about certain happenings going on throughout the league.

The NBA has adopted a new rule preventing unqualified agents to represent players coming into the league.

I have a couple of thoughts on this and what could this mean for long term for aspiring agents working with players who are looking for representation.

'Am I Sucked In?' The Life Of Being A Met Fan & The NL Wild Card Chase In 2019

115 down. 47 to go. Three weeks ago, no Met fan could ever imagine this. Tomorrow (Friday) night, the race for the NL Wild Card commences as the Mets host the #1 WC seeded (at the moment) Washington Nationals in a three game series. If you're a baseball fan, a tortured, diehard fan of any team, but especially a Met fan, this is a podcast you won't want to miss.

On this special edition (Episode 84) of The JAYREELZ Podcast, I'll preview the upcoming series and ask the question, 'Are you sucked in?' The rallying cry for this franchise from famed Met closer of the 1973 team, Tug McGraw, is 'Ya Gotta Believe!' I'm not speaking for the fan base, but I have a good grasp of what the majority thinks. More importantly, I’ll provide in-depth analysis of whether or not this team will be one of the last two wild card teams standing in the NL? Or it'll end in bitter disappointment, which more often than not, is usually the case.

Episode 82 puts the lid on July as summer and the MLB Trade Deadline has lots of sizzle!

Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving sign with the Brooklyn Nets. What does this mean for this upcoming season minus KD? The 2020-21 season? Also, I leave a small verbal note to the newly minted Nets fan.

The Knicks fall short of their pursuit of the two big guns. Why that’s not a bad thing? And why the contracts of the recent players they signed benefits for the short and long term? Also, James Dolan’s impact on why the Garden isn’t the ‘Mecca’ like it once was.

Sports 'Dead Zone' Pt. 2, Mets Unraveling in Wrigley, Yanks Soaring with London On Deck, Celtics Re-tooling?

Episode 77 welcomes in summer, closes out June and prepares us for another sports talk podcast party for the masses. On tap:

The second sports 'Dead Zone' of the year has arrived. I'll explain.

An eventful week that was for the Mets included, the firing of their pitching coach and bullpen coach. Pete Alonso’s record breaking rookie season, not securing a road series win since the beginning of April at Wrigley Field, leading up to some salty post game comments by manager, Mickey Callaway, at a Newsday reporter AND pitcher Jason Vargas intervening. Is Mickey Callaway on his way out? My biggest fear for Pete Alonso in 2019?  I have LOTS to say about this, as you might expect!

The Yankees weren't able to pay back the Astros with a sweep at home, but come off of an eight game winning streak as their big guns (i.e. Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge) are back in the starting lineup. They have a trip across the pond at the end of the week in London vs. the Red Sox. You'll get my take on why I don't like these games being played overseas?

I'll recap the NBA Draft, get into some NBA free agency stuff as we're exactly a week away. Plus, my thoughts on the Celtics this offseason. Are they looking to re-tool? Re-load?

I'll touch on the Devils and Rangers going 1-2 in the draft and what that means for the rivalry and organizations moving forward. Also, my Hero and Zero of the Week.
