March Madness Begins, NFL Free Agency Fallout, MLB Rule Changes, Clyde Frazier's Comments About LeBron

CORRECTION: During the March Madness segment of the podcast, I mentioned that Tennessee won the SEC Championship. It was Auburn. My apologies for the erroneous information.

Let the Madness begin as March starts to scorch the sports universe on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. Get your brackets ready because we’re going full throttle on the NCAA Tournament as I dissect the regions, who’ll be this years Cinderella and which four teams will represent in Minneapolis to play for the National Championship. The NFL offseason did not disappoint (unless you’re a fan of the football Giants). So much to dive into whether it’s the fallout of the Odell Beckham Jr. trade, the Browns already punching their ticket to the Super Bowl, Le’Veon Bell to the Jets and all of the craziness that ensued during this free agency period. Plus, what players are left standing as teams will now gear up for the NFL Draft. There are some rule changes coming to MLB, two of them happening in this coming year. I’ll deliver what they are and share my thoughts on whether or not it’s good for baseball. Also, will the Yankees not having P Luis Severino in their starting rotation be a major, minor or no problem at all? I’ll have all of that, including the latest in the NBA (Clyde Frazier’s comments about LeBron, playoff seeds in East & West), NHL (Islanders hanging on to first place) and much more on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast.

Chris Pflum of Big Blue View from SB Nation on the NY Giants/NFL Draft

NY Giants and their fans...you're on the clock! It's a little premature, but you get my drift! NFL Draft week has arrived. Joining me on the podcast is Chris Pflum, who writes for Big Blue View on SB Nation. I'll get his take on the quarterback class of 2018. What will the Giants do with the #2 overall pick? Will they trade down? Should they draft a QB? A running back? A pass rusher? Offensive lineman? If they draft a QB, what does that mean for Eli Manning? Fascinating talk leading up to one of the most anticipated Giants drafts ever! Later, you'll hear my two cents on demoted NY Mets pitcher, Matt Harvey. Plus, a thought on the Washington Capitals. You'll get all of the above, and then some, on the latest episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 9)
