JJ opens with the Mets somehow finding a new low by getting swept by the Phillies and blowing the division lead. Can they save their season (0:44)? Then, he discusses the Yankees surging up the standing but also Anthony Rizzo testing positive for COVID (9:02). Next, JJ reacts to a bunch of listener voicemails (15:15) before chatting with JackO about the Yankees revival and Bill Simmons’s Red Sox imploding (36:50). Finally, in Part 1 of a weeklong feature, he ranks the best athletes in New York right now. Today he reveals no. 15 through no. 11 (56:35).
We always want to hear from you! Leave JJ a message on the Listener Line at 917-382-1151.
