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.

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.

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.
