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.

Yankees Rolling, MLB Pennant Races, Tiger Woods/PGA, Sam Darnold Starting Week 1? Saquon's Impact

Back at it with another fast paced sports talk party on this edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The Yankees bounce back with a 6-1 week after losing five in a row, including four against their hated rivals, the Red Sox. I'll get on the Yankee fans who booed Giancarlo Stanton as he's carrying the team without Aaron Judge or Gary Sanchez in the lineup, the vast improvement of Aaron Hicks and the one similarity between Aaron Boone and Mets manager, Mickey Callaway. I'll also go around the horn to check out the MLB landscape, what pennant races are heating up and how four divisions may come down to the last weekend of the baseball season to capture a division title. You'll get my thoughts on Tiger Woods's close call of winning his 15th major championship this past weekend at the PGA. Plus, will this recent stretch of success carry over into 2019 into The Masters? Finally, you'll hear what I have to say about Sam Darnold's chance of winning the starting QB job for the Jets. And Saquon Barkley's impact on this Giants offense. All of that, and then some on this weeks' episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 24)
