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)

2018 NY Mets Preview with Scott & Jerome

On this weeks' podcast, I get the fans involved. Not only are they good friends of mine, but they are true, diehard New York Mets fans in Scott and Jerome. Scott is a long time season ticket holder. He and Jerome are best buddies going as far back as high school, at the very least. Their love and passion for the Amazin's is without a doubt, unquestionable. What we cover dates back to the firing of Terry Collins, the hiring of new manager, Mickey Callaway and their offseason acquisitions. We also get into a heated debate about GM Sandy Alderson on whether he has the flexibility and autonomy to add payroll in light of the Madoff scandal earlier this decade. We dive into the current roster as it's built and whether it can be sustained through a 162 game schedule. Plus, expectations, predictions and even a trip down memory lane through some of the teams' toughest moments. It's a complete breakdown/therapy session of the upcoming campaign for the NY Mets. If you're a casual or rabid Met fan, this will resonate as you get to sink your teeth into this podcast. Even if you're not a fan of the blue and orange, but are a fan of baseball in general, this is a discussion that you'll truly enjoy. Prepare for interesting, in-depth commentary, plenty of disagreement and frustration, which makes this a great listen. Like the great Mets announcer, Bob Murphy, used to say, "Fasten your seatbelt!" This is going to be a fun ride. (Episode 5)
