07/06/2014 – The 5th Quarter in New York Sports on AM1240-WGBB

I opened up The 5th Quarter in New York Sports on Long Island’s AM1240-WGBB with Carmelo Anthony talk. I strongly believe the Knicks superstar remains in New York. I gave out many reasons why he will, including Phil Jackson’s trade with the Mavericks.

Where will LeBron goes? I believe he stays in Miami and for several reasons.

Then came my all-time great Jason Kidd rant. The future Hall of Fame point guard disgraced the Nets organization by bolting Brooklyn for Milwaukee after just one year on the sidelines. How idiotic was Kidd? I give out Kidd’s career timeline and all the mistakes he’s made over the years.

In the second half of the show, it was all baseball. The Yankees acquired Brandon McCarthy and designated Alfonso Soriano for assignment. What moves do they need to make to stay alive in the AL East? Can they still win this mediocre division this season? What players can they get before the deadline?

I close out the show talking Mets and their horrid first half of the season. What player do the Mets need to get that they are saying they don’t want right now? What moves can they make that turn them into a playoff team in 2015? Also, how bad has the atmosphere gotten at Citi Field.

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?

3/2/14-The 5th Quarter in New York Sports on AM1240-WGBB

Check out Sunday night’s edition of The 5th Quarter in New York Sports on AM1240-WGBB. Former Yankees great and two-time World Champion Jim Leyritz joined us. We talked about his clutch home runs in the playoffs, playing with Derek Jeter, the current state of the Yankees, and PED use in MLB.

We also discussed the sorry state of the New York Knicks. When will Mike Woodson go? Is Carmelo Anthony going to leave in the offseason? Can the Brooklyn Nets surprise people in the playoffs?

We closed out the show giving our predictions for the 2014 season for the Mets and Yankees.
