The Weekend with Jake & Drew with Red Sox PxP voice Dave O’Brien-5/18/14

In the second to last edition of The Weekend with Jake & Drew on ESPN Radio NH, we were glad to be joined by the voice of the Red Sox on WEEI, Dave O’Brien.  We discussed the first quarter of the season and the question marks surrounding the Red Sox.  We discuss Red Sox youth, Clay Buchholz and his awful start, Stephen Drew, Jackie Bradley Jr. and his afro, and more.

We also gave out or MLB report cards.  Which teams have been the most surprising and which teams have been the most disappointing?

The NHL playoffs have had the flare for dramatics.  The Kings and Canadiens face off in the West Finals and the Rangers and Canadiens in the East.  Who moves on to the Stanley Cup Finals?

In what has been one of the best NBA playoffs ever, we got the matchups we expected with the top teams in both conferences facing off.  Will the Pacers de-throne the Heat?  Will the Thunder stand a chance without Ibaka?  We give out our NBA Finals picks.

4/27/14 – The 5th Quarter in New York Sports

Tune into my sports talk radio show from Sunday on AM1240-WGBB.

I opened the show with my rant on the whole Donald Sterling saga, and what penalty Adam Silver should hand down to the Clippers owner. I then shifted focus to the NBA playoffs.  Did this affect the Clippers and their NBA Finals chances?  Who wins out of the West? Should the Thunder trade Russell Westbrook?
Also, the Nets lost Game 4 to the Raptors, but will they lose the series?  Are the Nets bound to go to the Finals? Who wins out of the East? Also, I guaranteed on the show that Steve Kerr will be the next Knicks head coach and why it is a perfect fit.

Next up was baseball as the Mets are three games over .500 through 25 games.  Can they keep it going?  Should Dice-K become the new closer?
The Yankees are in first place, but do they need to trade for a pitcher? Will their bullpen survive?

The New York Rangers took a 3-2 series lead Sunday.  Is this a cup year for the Blueshirts?

The Jets get Chris Johnson, but is their offseason done?  What do the jets and Giants need in the upcoming NFL Draft?
