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)
