Matsuyama 'Master'ful! Run Support For Mets deGrom? HA! An NBA Budding Rivalry Out West? Kyrie On Leave AGAIN! NHL Wheeling & Dealing! Jets Send Darnold To Carolina For What In Return?
Taking you through the sports universe with fast-paced, non-stop, unapologetic opinions and analysis like no other as Episode 189 is primed and ready to be heard. On deck: (5:07) A rather ho-hum Masters golf tournament became historic as Hideki Matsuyama is the first Japanese man to win a major! I’ll get into specifics on the weekend overall. Huge names not making the cut (i.e. Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy to name a couple). Players coming out of the woodwork (i.e. Will Zalatoris and Marc Leishman) and others trying to make a run at the top of the leaderboard (i.e. Xander Schauffele and Jordan Spieth). Even Bryson DeChambeau wasn’t a threat throughout the weekend as I recap all that went down in Augusta. (22:21) The MLB season is about 11 days old (seven if you’re a Met fan like myself) and there’s already a few things to gripe about. From the lack of run support AGAIN for ace Jacob deGrom, to the controversial opening day win with Michael Conforto sticking his elbow out for a walk off hit by pitch RBI, to why did they Mets play when it was raining while foiling Marcus Stroman’s start. UGH! You know I have lots to say on this. Also, the Yankees pitching woes, the missed call at home plate which cost the Braves a possible win against the Phillies and an NCAA Division I women’s softball player makes history. (38:32) The NBA is starting to heat up a little bit on the court as the Suns take care of the Jazz at home last week. Only to follow up with a tough loss against the Clippers the next night. The story there that’s building is a budding rivalry as tensions flare and some comments were made by Clipper forward, Paul George. I’ll get into that, as well as, an update on the return of Anthony Davis and LeBron James, Kyrie Irving is out of the lineup for personal reasons AGAIN and A-Rod to become a minority owner of the T-Wolves? (51:37) The trade deadline has come and gone in the NHL and the Eastern Conference has done most of the damage. The Islanders make a big trade to acquire two former New Jersey Devils, but the biggest trade may be the final piece in the puzzle for the team with the longest Stanley Cup drought north of the border. I’ll delve into the deals that may impact the division races as we head into the homestretch of the regular season. (1:01:12) The Jets send Sam Darnold packing to Carolina. Why did they get so little in return? Why were they enamored with potential pick in BYU QB, Zack Wilson? Plus, the real reason why they jettisoned the former Jet QB. And the ongoing saga of Deshaun Watson as accusation pile up against him. Will he play this year? Is a suspension from the league looming? A thought as to why Watson wanted out of Houston? I’ll have all of that… (1:10:15) …and my Hero and Zero of the Week!
