Brodie Van Wagenen made a splash in his first move as Mets GM. He acquired All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano and 2018’s best closer Edwin Diaz from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for Jay Bruce, Anthony Swarzak, outfield prospect Jarred Kelenic, pitching prospect Justin Dunn, and pitcher Gerson Bautista. I wrote a column for WFAN below explaining why Mets fans should be thrilled with the trade.
This has been about as much of a nightmare and dysfunctional season as you can get. The New York Mets have been absolute trainwreck. I take a look back at the abundance of moments and decisions that have made this team a sideshow in my latest WFAN column.
The Mets trade pieces are not getting them much back in return. Check out my latest WFAN column explaining who may get dealt and why the Mets aren’t getting back huge pieces in return.
I was a guest on my former station where it all started, AM1240-WGBB. I joined the SportsTalk1240 crew to talk about the Mets awful turnaround, their recent two-game win streak, and what has gone wrong for the 2018 team. (6/17/18)
I wrote a column for WFAN on Jose Reyes and the Mets and how its time for him to go, and for the Mets to give Peter Alonso a shot in the big leagues this season.
I had the chance to cover the David Wells Perfect Game 20th Anniversary in May for WFAN.com. I spoke with Wells, David Cone, Bernie Williams, and other Yankees about that 1998 team vs. this 2018 Yankees team as we draw parallels, talk about the event, and take a trip down memory lane.
From an Emmy-winning MLB reporter to a chef…Jen Royle has had quite the journey. She joined me on The Jake Brown Show to discuss the journey, what happened, how she responds to hate, including from a famous lady who was not so nice at a tow truck place.
1986 Mets World Series Champion, 3-time Phillies All Star Lenny ‘Nails’ Dykstra in studio on The Jake Brown Show for a third, final time (3/21/18)
It’s always an adventure when Nails is in studio. 1986 Mets world Series champion, three-time Phillies All Star, and one of the most wild interviews guaranteed every time Lenny Dykstra joined me for a third and final time in studio on The Jake Brown Show.
The conversation went everywhere: Charlie Sheen and their fallout, his alleged videos out there, Sheen being bisexual, Mets, Phillies, women, how he tries to still bang, his financial situation, a reality show he’s working on, and a whole lot more shenanigans.
Well, I was not expecting a chat with former MLB utility man Desi Relaford to have the entire city of Philadelphia talking about it. When I asked Relaford if he affiliated himself most with the Phillies since he played the longest amount of time there (five seasons), he said no. After that, calling Philly fans ‘trash’ and why he didn’t like Phillies coach John Vukovich came up. I didn’t send the interview to anyone, besides posting it on social media. Someone saw it and then it hit the headlines on NBC Sports Philadelphia and NBC Philly 10. It became the talk of sports radio in Philly on Thursday on 94.1 WIP and 97.5 The Fanatic.
First off, Relaford wanted it to be known that he wasn’t referring to all the fans, just a small percentage of them. Second, I had him on the show because he had a great 2001 season with the Mets. I was 10 years old at the time and he was one of my favorite players on that team. I always will remember when he came in to pitch in a game the Mets were down 15-3 and threw a scoreless inning with a strikeout against the Padres. Unfortunately, the Mets traded him along with Shinjo for Shawn Estes, and Relaford didn’t see as much success after that. Relaford didn’t have an incredible career by any means, but playing in the big leagues for 11 years is no easy task.
Relaford struggled offensively and defensively with the Phillies…but the whole team stunk and the fan base was not happy at all. Boos were heard daily in that old ballpark that needed to be done with. Right now, Philly is a completely different sports city than it was back in 2000. They got a Phillies title in 2008 and the Eagles just won a Super Bowl. I am more amazed at how mad Philly fans got because of what Relaford said. I understand defending your city and fan base, but everyone says how bad he was, yet still manage to want to attack the guy.
Sure, I will take the pub for the show, but the guy said something that maybe he shouldn’t have. Let the man live. It wasn’t a good time for any of the Phillies then, and Relaford isn’t the only player that has said something bad about Philly fans. He seems to have hit a sensitive spot. The interview audio is below along with the pieces that picked it up. Thanks for the support.
Former MLB infielder and super utility player Desi Relaford joined me on The Jake Brown Show. We talked about coaching the Reds now, his career, time with Mets, his managers, why he hated playing with the Phillies and how bad their manager and fans treated him, how his career ended, and much more.
