SNDP 288: Summer Time For New York Sports

With the Isles, unfortunately, bounced from the playoffs the schedule conflicts are back to normal. We have all three guys on the pod tonight with loads to talk about. 

The leadoff topic tonight was a what-if trade proposal from SNY that would Send Dame Lillard from the Blazers to the Knicks for a huge return that made us relive the Melo deal. We all agreed that the NBA is the only sport you can make those kinds of deals and not get burned by it because it’s such a star-driven league that you can wipe away all the draft capital and young talent for one player and still be able to be in the thick of the playoffs each and every year.   

After getting swept in Boston last week the Yankees are still in that season-long lull. When is it time to think they might just be a mediocre team at best?  They are starting to show life again this week vs the Angels just in time to face off vs the Mets this weekend. 

The gang from Queens somehow is still holding on to the first place for dear life. The pitching is still carrying the team. While the bats are approaching the epically bad territory. What will it take for the bats to show any sort of life to help the pitching out just a little bit would just take the Mets to higher and new heights with this core of players? What will the Mets bats do when they head into the Bronx this weekend?

With the Isles season wrapped up. Steve gave his preview to his season-long side projects and is excited for what’s to come next season in the new arena in Belmont.  We also touch base on what to look for in the off-season and that starts off in a few weeks with the Seattle Kraken’s expansion draft and who will be unprotected for a chance to be selected by them.

Lastly, they go down the list to see who would most likely have the HBO cameras in their training camp for “Hard Knocks” we have a feeling it should be the Cardinals because they have an interesting team to preview going into the 2021 season and would be an enjoyable watch. 

As always, thank you for listening.  Please rant and review our page and follow us on all social media platforms. Until next time.
