Sunday night, I hosted The 5th Quarter in New York Sports solo on AM1240-WGBB. In what was the most entertaining show I have done in my two years of sports talk radio, I gave out the declaration of New York sports. The Jets playoff hopes came to an end. The Giants are playing for nothing. The Knicks and Nets have been pitiful. The Islanders and Rangers have had awful starts to the season. I also ranted on the Mets and Yankees offseasons thus far. I also made some bold statements including “running the streets of West Babylon naked if the Jets make the playoffs.”
We opened up hour 2 of the show with Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com and Baseball America. Jerry gave us his take on the Robinson Cano signing. What else do the Yankees need? Whose next on the Red Sox radar? When will David Price get traded? Can the Mets get a shortstop? Red Sox Senior VP Adam Grossman then joined us to talk Red Sox offseason, next season, and tickets going on sale. Is David Ortiz a Hall of Famer? Will Jackie Bradley be the Red Sox center fielder in 2014? Will Jacoby Ellsbury get booed in his return?
We finished the show talking Celtics and how good of a coach Brad Stevens is and how bad the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference has been. Can the Celtics make the playoffs? When will Rajon Rondo come back?
Dolphins left tackle Bryant McKinnie joined us to open up the show. How did the Incognito/Martin drama affect them? Is he thinking playoffs? Who is there to watch out for on the Patriots defense? We previewed Patriots-Dolphins and gave out our NFL week 15 picks.
