Mets Mess. Who's To Blame? Jets Adam 'Gase Of Thrones', GSW On Cusp, Bruins Cup Bound, Koepka Hangs On & More

Get ready for some serious heat as Episode 70 is going to deliver a knockout punch. On tap:

The Mets are in crisis mode as we’re a week away from MEMORIAL DAY! Who’s to blame for this mess? Is Mickey Callaway dead man walking? Where’s Brodie Van Wagenen? I have lots to get off my chest about this.

Jets coach, Adam Gase, has the Throne as his power play over the departed GM Mike Maccagnan was successful. Hear why this has disaster written all over it? What will owner Chris Johnson do down the road if this experiment doesn’t work? And you won’t believe who’s rumored to become the possible GM!

Golden State on the verge on another Finals trip. Toronto going down in a fight with Milwaukee. Also, the Knicks lose out on the Zion Williamson Sweepstakes. Does that mean the #3 overall pick will be dangled as trade bait?

The Boston Bruins are back in the Stanley Cup Finals, but is Brad Marchand bringing the NHL back to the Dark Ages?

Plus, Brooks Koepka hangs on to win the PGA, War Of Will wins the Preakness, Deontay Wilder’s first round KO and much more!

GS-HOU Round 2, Celtics Dominate, Isles Uphill Climb, Giants Draft Blunder, Yanks Rolling, Mets Pitching Woes. Plus, Hero & Zero of the Week

We’re on the verge of saying goodbye to an action packed sports month, but there’s still plenty to get into on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. Both the NBA & NHL have moved on to the Conference Semi-finals. We’ll start off with the NBA as the juicy second round match-ups (in particular, Houston-Golden State) is off to a wild start. I’ll get into the officiating in Game 1, what this could mean for the rest of series and who’ll come out on top and advance to the Conference Finals. I’ll get into the Celtics dominating GM 1 in Milwaukee, the Raptors win over the 76ers and the Nuggets prevailing over the Spurs as they prepare to face the Trail Blazers in Round 2. On the ice, the Islanders have dug themselves an 0-2 hole and now have to go on the road to play the Hurricanes and get back in this series. I’ll explain why this series is far from over, despite having the odds against them, as well as, surveying the rest of the Stanley Cup Playoff landscape with the other three series taking place.. The 2019 NFL Draft is officially in the books. I’ll discuss the Giants surprise first of three first round picks, all of the comings and goings of another wild weekend in Nashville and the latest surrounding Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill. The Yankees continue their hot streak out West as they’ve won six of seven in Anaheim and San Francisco. Should the Yankee fan expect this team to play stellar ball without their key guys in the lineup? I’ll have the answer to that, plus, what’s going on with Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard as the Mets pitching staff has underperformed here in the first month of the season. Lastly, I’m experimenting with a new close out segment at the very end of the pod called ‘The Hero and Zero of the Week’. It’s a jam packed sports podcast that you won’t want to miss as I’ll satiate your sports appetite and then some on the latest episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 67)

Nets On The Brink, Embiid's Clown Act, Celtics Sweep, NBA First Round Snooze. Islanders Waiting, NFL Draft Week, Yankees Surviving, Mets Stumbling

The best sports month of the year never disappoints as I’ll zip through the sports landscape in fast and furious fashion on this edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The Brooklyn Nets have hung tough but have fallen short against the heavily favored Philadelphia 76ers. I’ll revisit their last three games, do they have a shot at bringing this series back to Brooklyn? And I must get into the antics of a one, Joel Embiid, whose postgame comments and in game behavior is starting to wear on me. This is one segment you won’t want to miss out on as I believe this will catch up to him in the long run. I’ll take a look back on how the Celtics had a rough go of it for a four game sweep vs. the Indiana Pacers and breeze through the rest of the NBA playoff brackets as there’s very little drama surrounding the first round of the tournament. The Islanders have secured their first four game sweep of a playoff series since they’ve won the Stanley Cup back in 1983. Up next, is either Washington or Carolina as they Capitals are currently up 3-2 in their series. Will the long layoff help or hurt the Islanders in the second round? I’ll have that, plus a more drama filled postseason on the ice than the hardwood as we have two, and a potential three, Game 7’s on the horizon. The NFL Draft is days away. Both the Jets and Giants have prominent roles as they respectively have the 3rd and 6th picks overall. What will they do? What should they do? I’ll deliver my take on who they should draft as we inch closer to the first round on Thursday. I’ll also share a bit on the upcoming NFL schedules of the locals, the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Cleveland Browns and their FOUR primetime games and much more. The Yankees have suffered another key injury, this time to their best player, Aaron Judge, but the beat goes on as they win five of their last six at home as they embark on a West Coast trip. Will they continue to tread water? Fall deeper in the AL East standings? As for the Mets, they limp home losing four of five and six of ten on their ten game road trip. What are biggest problem for the Amazins’ early season failures? You’ll be surprised at who are some of the culprits as to the Mets stumbling over the past week. Are there reinforcements coming? You’ll definitely want to listen to what I have to say regarding these issues, and a whole lot more on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 66)

Tiger's Redemption, Isles/CBJ Domination, Nets/ORL Surprises, Yankees Panic Button? Mets Lose Series Win in ATL

April continues to sizzle as there is much to cover in the sports world on this edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The unthinkable has happened! Eldrick ‘Tiger’ Woods has made it back to golf’s mountaintop with a cool, calm and collected final round to win his fifth green jacket at The Masters and his 15th major tournament overall. I’ll detail Tiger’s historic Sunday, what this means moving forward and is there another major title on the horizon in 2019? The New York Islanders are one win away from sweeping the Pittsburgh Penguins out of the playoffs. I’ll recap how effective and dominant they’ve been against their division rivals and can they break out the brooms? Or will it go back to the Island for a Game 5? Speaking of sweeps, who would’ve thought the Tampa Bay Lightning would be one game away from being sent home after their 62 win/128 point regular season? I’ll discuss that and the rest of what’s going on in the NHL as we get deeper into round one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. How about the Brooklyn Nets? They went into Philadelphia and stole Game 1, with Game 2 looming this evening. Do they have a shot to win this series? Or was that just a fluke? You’ll get my take on their chances, the Orlando Magic making a statement in Game 1 vs. Toronto,  the Celtics ugly but effective win and the rest of the opening playoff weekend in the NBA. Is it time to panic in the Bronx if you’re the Yankees? They’re sure underachieving, but the injuries continue to mount, especially with their top players. I’ll review the week that was and what lies ahead for the Bombers as the defending champion Red Sox come to town this week. Also, the Mets started off with a bang in Atlanta only to cool off by losing the back two games of their four game series to the Braves. Now it’s onto Philadelphia as they’ll face Bryce Harper & company for the first time this year. I’ll check in on the good (Pete Alonso), the bad (Jacob deGrom’s last two starts) and the ugly (the bullpen, minus Edwin Diaz)  on the Amazins’ as their ten game road trip continues. I’ll chirp in on all of the above and then some, on a jam packed mid-April show you won’t want to miss on this weeks installment of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 65)
