NCAA's Sweet 16/Duke Escapes, Gronk Retires, Big Ben Awaits, MLB Over/Unders, deGrom's Contract Clock, NBA & NHL Homestretch

It’s officially spring! The Madness is in full effect! A baseball season is about to begin! And we’re into the homestretch of the NBA & NHL regular season. Chock full of sports chatter for your earbuds as I deliver all of that and then some on the latest edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. We are down to sixteen teams in the NCAA Tournament. I’ll recap what took place over the weekend, including a miraculous outcome for the Duke Blue Devils, and review what lies ahead as we set our sights on the Final Four. I’ll touch on a couple of NFL tidbits. The retirement of Rob Gronkowski. Is he a Hall of Famer? What’s on the mind of Ben Roethlisberger as he has some questions to answer regarding his relationship with two of his former teammates in particular. And a couple of free agent signings throughout the league. The MLB season has begun (with the two games in Japan where Seattle sweeps Oakland), but it commences state side on Thursday as we usher in another year of baseball. I’ll set the table as I delve into the over/under win totals, the status of Jacob deGrom’s contract as Opening Day is just a few days away and tip my hand on the MLB Preview that I’ll have in store later in the week. I’ll also get into these last couple of weeks with the Celtics and Islanders as they head into the homestretch of a long, grueling season. Closing out the first quarter of 2019 in grand style with nothing but informative, entertaining and credible sports talk on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 60)

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.
