JJ opens with the Mets’ disappointing weekend against the Pirates and how they somehow salvaged a win on Sunday (01:17). Then, he breaks down why he’s not fully ready to buy in just yet on the Yankees despite their big series wins against the Red Sox (06:05). Next, JJ chats with former Yankee catcher Jim Leyritz about whether this weekend’s series win over Boston can be a turning point, comparisons to the ’95 team, and some George Steinbrenner stories (13:14). Finally, he reacts to some listener voicemails (35:30) before closing it out with a pick for Game 6 of the Finals (51:25).

We always want to hear from you! Leave JJ a message on the Listener Line at 917-382-1151.
