SportsTalk1240 with Tommy John – 3/22/15

It felt good to be back behind the mic in the vintage AM1240-WGBB studios Sunday for SportsTalk1240. I brought in James Flippin aka “Jimmy Flippin” to co-host the show with me. Jimmy hosts Mets on the Air on SNY.tv, which I produce. We were joined by 288-game winner and one of the great southpaws in MLB history, Tommy John. We focused on the Tommy John Surgery epidemic, how it changes pitchers, the state of Mets pitching, and what he’s doing now.

We previewed the Mets and Yankees season, and also did it through a freestyle rap. We gave our win predictions for both teams. We also analyzed March Madness and how our brackets have been busted.

Isles Ready to Compete With NHL’s Best

I had the chance to cover the New York Islanders Saturday as they took on the Chicago Blackhawks. The Isles prevailed with a 3-2 victory, ending their three-game losing streak and ending the Blackhawks eight-game win streak. The 20-10 Isles have proved to the rest of the league to take them for real. This team can compete with the best. Here’s my story on the game, featuring quotes from head coach Jack Capuano as well as Josh Bailey and Kyle Okposo.
