SPORTSNITE BLOW


>>>HOW WAS THE METS’ RESPONDING SUNDAY AFTER A HEART- BREAKING LOSS ON SATURDAY? HELLO AND WELCOME INTO GEICO “SPORTSNITE.” I’M MARIA MANINO. CHRIS IS ON HAND TO TALK METS AS WELL AS THE YANKEES AND PRIMETIME. HOPING TO STAY PERFECT AGAINST THE RED SOX THIS SEASON. WE’LL ALSO GET YOU SOME INJURY UPDATES FOR BOTH NEW YORK TEAMS. LET’S GET RIGHT TO THE METS’ HIGHLIGHTS. THE METS AND STEVEN MATZ LOOKING TO TAKE THE RUBBER GAME VERSUS THE DIAMONDBACKS. BOTTOM 1st. D-BACKS LEAD OFF BATTER IS MARTE AND HE CRUSHES THIS OFFERING TO LEFT CENTER AND INTO THE CONCOURSE. A 482-FOOT BLAST GETS ADS ADS ON THE BOARD — ARIZONA ON THE BOARD FIRST. TWO BATTERS LATER IT’S EDUARDO ESCOBAR BATTING WITH A MAN ON. HE LIFTS A CURVEBALL DOWN THE LEFT FIELD LINE. STAYS FAIR FOR THE TWO RUN HOMER. ANOTHER ROUGH 1st INNING FOR MATZ. IT’S 3-0 ARIZONA. MEANWHILE, NEW YORK STRUGGLED TO FIGURE OUT ROOKIE MERYL KELLY IN THE 5th 3-1 DIAMONDBACKS. STRUCK OUT SWINGING THEN AARON ALTER WHIFFING ON THE CURVE. IN THE 8th. HE SWINGS AND MISSES AND NEXT UP, TODD FRAZIER TAKE A SEAT. KELLY FANS TEN AS THE METS FALL 7-1 AND DROP THE SERIES. HERE’S A TICKED OFF MICKEY CALLOWAY AFTER THE GAME.>>WE GOT TO GO OUT THERE AND CONSISTENTLY GET IT DONE YOU KNOW. YOU BEAT YOU WANT ON AGAIN KEY A LITTLE — GREINKE A LITTLE BIT WHO’S ONE OF THE BETTER PITCHERS IN THE LEAGUE AND THEN YOU HAVE A NIGHT LIKE TONIGHT. THAT KIND OF INCONSISTENCY JUST IS NOT GOING TO WIN YOU GAMES AND THAT IS WHY WE ARE WHERE WE ARE IN THE STANDINGS AND WHAT OUR RECORD LOOKS LIKE RIGHT NOW BECAUSE IT’S — WE’RE JUST TOO INCONSISTENT. WE’LL CONTINUE TO WORK AND WE’LL CONTINUE TO COME EVERY DAY. READY TO GO. AND LEARN AND GET BETTER. AND SEE IF WE CAN’T YOU KNOW, WE JUST — WE HAVE TO DO BETTERFUL YOU KNOW I’M TRYING TO — BETTER. YOU KNOW I’M KIND OF GETTING SICK OF SAYING WE HAVE TO RIGHT THIS SHIP. WE HAVE TO GET IT DONE. >>THE METS’ PITCHING STAFF A TOUCH TIME ON THE ROAD TRIP PRESENTED BY GEICO. THE STARTERS HAD A 3.71 E.R.A. AND THE BULLPEN WORST WITH AN E.R.A. OVER 11 ON THIS TRIP. FOR MORE ON THE METS, HERE’S EAMON McENEANEY AND HER MLB INSIDER ANDY MARTINO. >>Reporter: THANKS AND ANDY THE ROLLER COASTER RIDE FOR THE TEAM CONTINUES. TWO SUNDAYS AGO, WE’RE TALKING ABOUT MICKEY AFTER THE SWEET SOUND IN MIAMI. THEY GETTING TRAN WITH THE WILL — ON TRACK WITH THE 6-1 HOME STAND. WITH SOME DEMORALIZING LOSSES NOW. WITH THE TEAM NOW IS EARLY JUNE, WHAT IS ITS IDENTITY? >>THEY DON’T HAVE ONE YET AND THAT’S A PROBLEM. OBVIOUSLY THE METS WITH THE NEW GENERAL MANAGER CAME INTO THE SEASON WITH THE WIN NOW AND WIN LATER MESSAGE AND THAT’S A GREAT MESSAGE. IT’S CULTURE CHANGING AND WHICH IS WHAT HE WAS TRYING TO DO WHEN HE CAME IN. MADE SOME AGGRESSIVE ACQUISITIONS BUT OBVIOUSLY IT’S RESULTS BUSINESS AND THE TEAM IS 28-31. THEY’RE NOT READY TO GIVE UP ON THE SEASON. BUT THEY’RE STILL HOPING TO WIN AND THEY’RE STILL HOPING TO BE BUYERS RATHER THAN SELLERS AT THE DEADLINE AND ALL THAT BUT PERCEPTION AROUND THE LEAGUE IS WHO ARE THEY? ARE THEY GOING TO WIN AND GET THE WHEELER OR SYNDERGAARD IN JULY VIA TRADE? NOBODY REALLY KNOWS WHO THE METS ARE AND THE METS AREN’T PLAYING LIKE THAT EITHER. IT’S A FRUSTRATING PLACE FOR THE THEM TO BE. GOING BACK AND FORTH AND GOING BACK AND FORTH. BE AT SOME POINT THE TEAM IS GOING TO HAVE TO EITHER PICK A LANE OR ACKNOWLEDGE IT’S NOT THEIR YEAR. >>NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR ABOUT WOULD HAVE COULD HAVE SHOULD HAVE IN PRO SPORTS. BUT A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ROAD TRIP IF THE BULLPEN DOESN’T IMPLODE WITH THE LEADS AGAINST THE DODGERS AND DIAMONDBACK. HOW DOES CALLOWAY AND VAN WAGGENNEN FIX THIS? >>HAS NOT WORKED OUT SO FAR. HE HAS E.R.A. OVER 6. WE HAVE A KEY GUY, HE WAS RUNNING ON FUMES AND HE HAD NOTHING FOR THE LAST PART OF THE ROAD TRIP. HE HAS DIAZ WHO THEY’RE TRYING TO PROTECT. SO REALLY THERE’S NOT A LOT OF — THE BRIDGE TO DIAZ ISN’T GREAT AND YOU CAN’T OVERUSE HIM. IT’S REALLY TOUGH TO SAY EVEN A GUY LIKE JUSTIN WILSON WITH THE FREE AGENT SIGNING THAT I FOR ONE PRAISED. HE IS HURT AND HE HASN’T BEEN EFFECTIVE. WITH THE PERSONNEL THAT THEY HAVE UNLESS SOME GUYS JUST GET RIGHT. IT IS WHAT IT IS. AND TERMS OF WHO’S OUT THERE. AND IT’S ON DAVE EILAND AND TO A LESSER EXTENT MICKEY CALLOWAY TO WORK WITH THE GUYS TO FIGURE IT OUT. >>TOUGH TRIP HOME FOR THE METS. NOW BACK TO YOU.>>>THANKS SO MUCH GUYS. SO THE METS COME HOME AND PLAY THREE WITH THE GIANTS AND THREE WITH THE ROCKIES. BEFORE THEY HEAD TO THE BRONX FOR THE TWO GAMES WITH THE YANKEES. SO WITH MORE ON THE METS, LET’S BRING IN CHRIS WILLIAMSON NOW AND THE BASEBALL NICE IN NEW YORK CREW — NIGHT IN NEW YORK CREW. >>TIME NOW FOR BASEBALL NIGHT IN NEW YORK. WE SAW STEVEN MATZ STRUGGLE IN THE 1st INNING YET AGAIN. HE GIVES UP THREE RUNS, WHAT WENT WRONG THIS TIME? >>IT’S A SLOW START. I MEAN MATZ HAS DONE A FANTASTIC JOB WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THE WAY HE’S PITCHED FOR THE TEAM. GONE DEEP GOO GAMES BUT THE FIRST INNINGS — INTO GAMES BUT 1st INNING STRUGGLES. HE GOT KNOCKED OUT WITH SEVEN OR EIGHT RUNS IN PHILADELPHIA. BUT ONE OF THE STARTS WHERE AFTER WHAT THE PULL BEN GAVE YOU — BULLPEN GAVE YOU. YOU ALMOST NEED TO GIVE A 0 TO GET THAT GAME. YOU KNOW WITHIN A COLD FRONT ZONE. HE DIDN’T DO IT AND IT WAS ONE OF THOSE DAYS FOR THE METS. THIS ONE ISN’T GOING TO BOTHER YOU AS MUCH AS WEDNESDAY’S DEBACLE AGAINST THE DODGERS OR SATURDAY’S DEBACLE AGAINST THE DIAMONDBACKS. BUT WHEN YOU HAVE THOSE GAMES ON A ROAD TRIP YOU DON’T WANT TO BE STARING AT 1st INNING DEFICIT RIGHT IN THE FACE.>>NO ESPECIALLY AS YOU SAID YOU NEEDED — THIS IS WHEN YOU NEED THE STARTER TO COME OUT. IF HE GETS TO DO THE FIRST FEW INNINGS THAT SEEMS MORE LIKELY AND KELLY IS NOT SHUTTING HIM DOWN THE WAY HE PROBABLY DID. IT SPEAKS TO MATZ’S INCONSISTENCY. LOOK THE FIRST HOME RUN YOU CAN UNDERSTAND BEHIND THE COUNT. 2-0. HE THROWS A FASTBALL AND GETS HIT. 0-2 TO EDUARDO ESCOBAR. YOU CAN’T THROW A DROP AND 0-2 CURVEBALL THERE AND A HANGER. HE LOOKED LICK HIGHWAY HAD TURNED THE CORNER — LIKE HE HAD TURNED THE CORNER AND EVERYBODY ELSE AGAINST THE DODGERS. THE PITCHING YOU HEARD MARTINO SAY THEY DON’T HAVE THE IDENTITY. IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE THE STARTING PITCHING. IT’S NOT BEEN GOOD ENOUGH. THE STARTING PITCHING HAS TO LEAD THE WAY. >>OF COURSE CALLOWAY WAS VERY FRUSTRATED WITH MATZ BUT YOU KNOW THE GAMES ARE GOING TO HAPPEN. AFTER WE HEARD THE GAME WE HEARD MICKEY BE VERY VOCAL SAYING WE CAN’T HAVE GUYS HAVE THE CAREER GAMES WHEN THEY’RE PITCHING AGAINST US AND OUR PLAYERS ARE NOT WHERE THEY NEED TO BE. MORE VOCAL HARP?>>I THINK — I SHOWED A LITTLE BIT OF FIRE TOO BECAUSE HE NEVER SAYS ANYTHING YOU KNOW. HE IS THE BY THE WE’RE GOING TO LOVE THESE GUYS LIKE THEY’VE NEVER BEEN LOVED BEFORE. LOOK HE SOUNDED LIKE A GUY THAT WAS SICK OF WATCHING THE TEAM AND I DON’T BLAME HIM. HE MADE IT CLEAR HE DIDN’T THINK THIS GUY KELLY WAS THAT –>>I’M NOT SURE. I WAS TRYING TO — COME UP WITH THE RIGHT GUY.>>BUT YOU ARE RIGHT. SO I DO, I THINK IT’S GOOD. LOOK, THIS TRIP COULD HAVE BEEN A WHOLE LOT DIFFERENT IF THE BULLPEN HAD — SAFED THE GAMES THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO SAFETY BUT CALLOWAY IS I THINK, HE IS SEES SOMETHING THERE. THIS IS AS CLOSE AS WE’VE COME TO SEEING AN OLD KIND OF OLD FASHIONED TERRY COLLINS MELTDOWN. I THINK MAYBE YOU WILL GET A MESSAGE A LITTLE BIT TO THE PLAYERS EVEN THOUGH HE DIDN’T CALL ANYBODY OUT PERSONALLY. IT’S GOOD TO SEE. >>BEYOND REFRESHING I MEAN YOU THINK ABOUT THE WAY THIS ROAD TRIP IS GONE. YOU LOSE A GAME ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT THE WAY THEY DID AND YOU LOSE A GAME ON SATURDAY THE WAY THEY DID AND I’M SICK AND TIRED OF THE CODDLING. I MEAN AT THE END OF THE DAY THE METS ARE A COUPLE OF GAMES UNDER THE .500 MARK. THEY’RE NOT ONE OF THE NATIONAL LEAGUE’S ELITE LEVEL TEAMS. BUT I THINK BECAUSE OF THAT SECOND WILD CARD, YOU ARE GOING TO BE IN THIS LIMBO OF ARE THE METS IN IT OR A TEAM LIKE ANDY WAS TALKING ABOUT, ABOUT 15 MINUTES AGO, LOOKING TO SELL AND LOOKING TO TRADE OFF PIECES? I DON’T KNOW BUT AS THEY RETURN HOME SAN FRANCISCO IS A LOU SEAY TEAM. GOT TO WINSTON GAMES. COLORADO, THEY’RE RIGHT THERE FOR THE SECOND WILD CARD. GOT TO WIN SOME GAMES. AND WE’LL SEE GUYS IF THE METS CAN SHOW A PULSE AGAINST THE YANKEES. AND YOU WOULD HOPE ONE OF THE BEST TEAMS IN BASEBALL YOU ARE GOING TO SHOW A PULSE.>>BETTER BECAUSE IF YOU DON’T IT’S GOING TO GET REAL UGLY. THE METS 4-17 OVER THE LAST 21 ROAD GAMES. THE GOOD NEWS THOUGH, IS THAT THEY HAVE A DAY OFF AND THEN THEY TAKE ON THE GIANTS WHO HAVE NOT BEEN THAT IMPRESSIVE THIS YEAR. J.J. HARP, THANKS SO MUCH FOR STOPPING BY. MARIA BACK TO YOU.>>>THANKS A BUNCH CHRIS. WE’RE JUST GETTING STARTED HERE ON GEICO “SPORTSNITE.” A FIERCELY COMPETITIVE RIVALRY WAS LAST NIGHT IN THE YANKEES’ FAVOR HEADING INTO SUNDAY. COULD THE RED SOX MAKE A DENT? HIGHLIGHTS NEXT.>>>PLUS AN UNFAMILIAR POSITION FOR THE WARRIORS BEING DOWN ONE GAME TO NONE IN THE NBA FINALS. HOW WOULD THEY HANDLE IT?

IT IS FAR, IT IS GONE! GARY SANCHEZ GOES THE OPPOSITE WAY AND THE YANKEES’ OPEN AND THE YANKEES TAKE A 5-3 LEAD.>>FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 2012, THE YANKEES WERE 4-0 TO START THEIR SEASON SERIES WITH THE RED SOX. MEANWHILE, THE YANKS’ NINE AND A HALF GAME LEAD WAS ALSO THE RED SOX BIGGEST DEFICIT IN THE A. L. EAST SINCE 2015. IT WAS ALREADY NINE STRAIGHT SERIES WINS FOR THE YANKS BUT COULD THEY WIN THE FOURTH STRAIGHT GAME? THE YANKEES LOOKING TO BUST OUT THE BROOMS AGAINST THE RED SOX. CC SABATHIA MAKING HIS FLUSH THE GIRARDI LIST. TOM — RETURN FROM THE INJURED LIST. TOP OF THE 1st. MARTINEZ TAKES SABATHIA DEEP TO LEFT FOR A HOME RUN. MARTINEZ’S 12th OF THE YEAR, THE YANKEES TRAIL 1 WILL HAVE 0. TOP OF THE — 1-0. TOP OF THE 4th. BOGAERTS TO LEFT FOR ANOTHER HOME RUN. 12th OF THE YEAR MAKES IT 3 OF 0 RED SOX. — 3-0 RED SOX. TOP OF THE 7th YANKEES TRAIL 3 2. EDUARDO NUNEZ SINGLES TO RIGHT. HAY VIS SCORES FROM THIRST — HAY INVESTIGATION SCORES FROM FIRST AND RED SOX ADDED TWO MORE RUNS TO MAKE IT 6-2. THE YANKEES THREATENING IN THE 7th. TWO ON TWO OUT. BRET GARDNER HOT SHOT TO FIRST. SNAGGED BY CHAVEZ WHO RACES TO THE BAG FOR THE OUT. THE YANKEES LOSE 8-5. HERE’S AARON BOONE ON CC.>>FELT PRETTY GOOD. REALLY GOOD COMPETE. MADE PITCHES MISTAKE TO BOGAERTS YOU KNOW WHERE HE DIDN’T OBVIOUSLY GET THAT PITCH WHERE HE WANTED. I THOUGHT JD ACTUALLY HIT A GOOD PITCH. LOOKED LIKE HE JUST PUT A GREAT SWING WHERE HE PULLED HIS HAND AND WAS ABLE TO KEEP THAT BALL FAIR YOU KNOW. WAS EFFICIENT. YOU KNOW, GOT US THROUGH SIX INNINGS WITH A CHANCE THERE. SO GOOD TO SEE HIM BACK OUT THERE. AND COMPETING THE WAY HE DID. I THOUGHT HE MADE A LOT OF PITCHES.>>A CLOSER LOOK AT THE A. L. EAST STANDINGS HERE. AND THE YANKEES NOW HAVE AN EIGHT AND A HALF GAME LEAD ON THE RED SOX. AND ARE UP TWO AND A HALF GAMES ON THE RAYS FOR THE DIVISION LEAD. FOR MORE TALK BACK OVER TO CHRIS AND THE BASEBALL NIGHT IN NEW YORK CREW.>>THANKS MARIA. TIME NOW FOR MORE BASEBALL NIGHT IN NEW YORK WITH J.J. AND JOHN HARPER. SO FELLAS, CC — DIDN’T STRUGGLE BUT IT WAS NOT HIS BEST OUTING. IS CC HARPER, SOMEBODY THE YANKEES CAN COUNT ON? >>I THINK HE IS. I MEAN I THINK IT’S — ALL THE THINGS CONSIDERED, HIS FIRST TIME BACK NOT BAD. I THINK THEY’LL TAKE SIX INNINGS AND THREE RUNS FROM HIM JUST ABOUT ANYTIME. HE’S NOT GOING TO GIVE — BE A GUY THAT GIVES YOU LENGTH ANYMORE AND LISTEN HE’S A GUY SOMEHOW WITH THE CUTTER AND THE SLIDER HE — HE INDUCES A LOT OF SOFT CONTACT. NOT A LOT OF BALLS HIT HARD. A COUPLE OF HOME RUNS YOU SAW IN THIS GAME. BUT HE DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THE RACE. HE’S JUST A DEPTH GUY NOW FOR THEM IN THE ROTATION. HE’S FIN I THINK. FOR THEM IT’S A MATTER OF IN OCTOBER DO THEY HAVE THE ACES LINED UP TO WIN A PLAYOFF SERIES? >>THAT’S IT HARP. THE REGULAR SEASON, CC SABATHIA IS PERFECT. HE’S GOING TO GO OUT AND HE’S GOING TO COMPETE AND YOU ARE GOING TO TAKE SIX INNINGS OF THREE RUN BASEBALL ANYTIME HE TOES THE RUBBER. MORE OFTEN THAN NOT AND YOU THINK ABOUT THE YANKEES’ BATS AND BULLPEN. WHEN IT COMES TO CC SABATHIA AND YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT OCTOBER I THINK THIS IS NO LONGER THE GUY WE SAW IN 2009 OR SAW IN 2012. EVEN THINK BACK THE LAST YEAR — TO LAST YEAR AND CC STARTING A GAME IN THE POSTSEASON. THAT’S SOMETHING I WOULD NOT DO AND THAT’S WHY YOU WILL SEE THE YANKEES I THINK AT SOME POINT IN TIME ADDRESS THE STARTING PITCHING WHEN IT COMES TO A TRADE. OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS. BUT LOOK FOR CC HARPER, YOU REMEMBER THIS WELL. DAVID COHN COMING OUT AND WHAT WAS IT GAME FOUR OF THE 2000 WORLD SERIES? WOULD IT SURPRISE YOU IF CC CAME OUT OF THE BULLPEN AND HAD A BIG MOMENT? >>THEY DIDN’T HAVE THE TYPE OF PEN THINK NOW. THAT WOULD — THEY HAVE NOW. THAT WOULD SURPRISE ME. MAYBE COME OUT AND GET A LEFTY. >>BIG PICTURE NOW. THE — PICTURE NOW. THE YANKEES DO FALL TO THE RED SOX. THAT WAS KIND OF EXPECTED. ARE THE YANKEES THE TEAM TO BEAT IN THE A. L. EAST RIGHT NOW J.J.? >>JUST THE COMPLETE COMPLETE TEAM WITHIN THE DIVISION. THE BULLPEN IS JUST UNBELIEVABLE TALENTED. AND THINK ABOUT HOW RELENTLESS THIS LINEUP IS. WITH LeMAHIEU WITH BOYD WHO’S PLYING LIKE THE ALL-STAR FIRST BASEMAN. THE RESURGENCE OF GARY SANCHEZ. AND OH BY THE WAY THEY HAVE GUYS BY THE NAME OF JUDGE. STANTON. AND GREGORIUS IS COMING BACK. THIS IS THE TEAM TO BEAT IN THE A. L. EAST. >>AT LEAST WINS NOW WITH GUYS THAT HAVE COME UP AND YOU KNOW FILLED IN FOR THE INJURED PLAYERS. YOU SAID IT. JUST THE MOST COMPLETE TEAM. THE BULLPEN GIVES THEM THE HUGE ADVANTAGE ON THE RED SOX. I THINK THE RED SOX HAVE A RUN IN THEM AND LISTEN THE RAYS ARE FOR TALE. I THINK — REAL. I THINK THE YANKEES, THERE’S SO MANY BAD TEAMS IN THE AMERICAN LEAGUE. NO EXTENDED SLUMP WHICH IS WHAT I THINK IT WOULD TAKE FOR THE LED SOX TO CATCH THEM.>>FOR THE YANKEES WHEN THEY GET BACK DD AND STANTON AND JUDGE, IT’S GOING TO BE ONE OF A SCARY LINEUP. DON’T YOU GUYS AGREE? >>OH FOR SURE. >>VERY GOOD PROBLEMS. J.J., HARPER, ALWAYS GREAT STUFF. MARIA, BACK TO YOU MY FRIEND. >>>THANK YOU MY FRIEND. A LOT STILL TO DO ON GEICO SPORT NITE. HAS THE — “SPORTSNITE.” HAS THE JETS’ INTERIM GM PINPOINTED WHO THE NEXT PERMANENT GM SHOULD BE. >>>AND WE’LL HEAD NORTH OF THE BORDER WITH THE WARRIORS TRYING TO EVEN THINGS UP WITH THE RAP FORS IN THE NBA FINALS. — RAPTORS IN THE NBA FINALS.

SECOND QUARTER RAPTORS UP NINE LEONARD WITH THE NICE REVERSE LAYUP AND GETTING THE FOUL. TORONTO LED BY AS MANY AS 12 IN THE FIRST HALF BUT THE WARRIORS CAME TO PLAY IN THE THIRD QUARTER. CUSS SINS FINDS THE CUTTING CLAYTONSON FOR THE LAYUP. PART OF — KLAY THOMPSON FOR THE LAYUP. PART OF THE 18-0 RUN. WHAT? CURRY FINISHED WITH 23 POINTS AND 30 SECONDS LEFT, RAPTORS DOWN 106-101. DANNY GREENE KNOCKS DOWN THE THREE. TORONTO WITHIN TWO. WARRIORS USING SOME CLOCK ON THE NEXT POSSESSION. SHAUN LIVINGSTON PASSES TO ANDRE IGUODALA. HE DRAINS THE THREE WITH SEVEN SECONDS LEFT. WARRIORS WIN 109-104. TIE THAT SERIES UP AT ONE APIECE. >>>OVER TO FOOTBALL. EAGLES’ VP OF PLAYER PERSONNEL JOE DOUGLAS HAD DINNER WITH THE JETS SATURDAY FOLLOWED BY THE INTERVIEW FOR THEIR GENERAL MANAGER VACANCY SUNDAY. FOR MORE ON THE CANDIDACY, HERE’S OUR NFL INSIDER RAFFLE OF ADVANTAGE YEA — RALPH VACCHIANO.>>Reporter: JOE DOUGLAS THE EAGLES’ VICE PRESIDENT OF PLAYERS PERSONNEL REMAINS THE FAVORITE TO BECOME THE NEW GENERAL MANAGER OF THE JETS WHEN THEIR SEARCH IS COMPLETED POSSIBLY SOMETIME BY THE END OF THIS WEEK. NOW THERE’S STILL A LOT OF CONCERN AROUND THE LEAGUE ABOUT HOW THE JETS HAVE HANDLED THIS MESS. THEIR CLUMSY FIRING. THE APPARENT POWER PLAY BY NEW COACH ADAM GASE, BUT THERE’S ALSO A FEELING FROM A LOT OF THE SOURCES I’VE TALKED TO THAT WHEN THIS IS OVER, IF THE JETS DO LAND ON DOUGLAS, THEY CAN ACTUALLY STUMBLE INTO A REALLY GOOD SITUATION. IT IS A COUPLE OF REASONS FOR THAT. ONE IS THAT DOUGLAS HAS BEEN THOUGHT OF FOR A LONG TIME AS A YOUNG UP AND COMING GENERAL MANAGER CANDIDATE. HE’S DONE WONDERS WORKING WITH THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES OBVIOUSLY WHO HAVE WHO BEEN UP NEAR THE TOP OF THE LEAGUE OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS. AND HE’S SOMEONE THAT EVERYBODY EXPECTED WOULD BE A TOP CANDIDATE IN THE NEXT HIRING CYCLE OF GENERAL MANAGERS. THE OTHER REASON WHY THIS COULD BE A GOOD THING IS HE OBVIOUSLY HAS A RELATIONSHIP WITH GASE WHICH IS WHY HE’S THE FAVORITE TO LAND THIS JOB. AND THAT’S A HUGE THING. THE JETS OVER THE LAST DECADE OR SO HAVE REALLY HAD DYSFUNCTIONAL FORCED MARRIAGES BETWEEN THEIR GENERAL MANAGER AND THEIR COACH. THEY HAVEN’T HAD TWO GUYS WHO WERE ABSOLUTELY ON THE SAME PAGE THINKING ALIKE WHERE THE GM KNEW WHAT PLAYERS THE COACH LIKED WHERE THE COACH COMPLETELY TRUSTED THE GM TO DO HIS JOB. THIS COULD BE THAT SITUATION. GASE AND DOUGLAS ARE CLOSE. THAT’S THE WHOLE POINT OF THIS. IF THE JETS CAN GET THEIR FRONT OFFICE WORKING WITH THEIR COACHING STAFF AND IF DOUGLAS IS THE GUY, IT REALLY CONE UP IN A — COULD END UP IN A BETTER SITUATION THAN THEY’VE HAD IN MANY YEARS, THE METS WILL BE SEEING JAY BRUCE IN THEIR FUTURE. THE MARRIERS AND PHILLIES A– MARINERS AND PHILLIES AGREE TO A TRADE. ONLY BATTING .212. EXPECTED TO JOIN THE PHILLIES IN SAN DIEGO ON MONDAY. >>>PHILLIES AND DODGERS FROM L. A.. SCORELESS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 7th. DAVID FREES AT THE PLATE. HE — FRESE OVER THE PLATE. IT GETS THE DODGERS ON THE BOARD FIRST. THEN IN THE 8th. DODGERS WITH RUNNERS ON THE CORNERS. SINGLES THROUGH THE RIGHT SIDE SCORINGS MAX MUNCIE. 2-0 LOS ANGELES. IN THE INNER LATER, NOW 6-0 DODGERS. JOSH PETERSON ADDS TO IT WITH A DEEP SHOT TO LEFT CENTER FOR A TWO RUN HOMER. DODGERS SCORE SEVEN IN THE FRAME. AND GET THE 8-0 VICTORY.>>>LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE NL EAST STANDINGS. AND AFTER THE METS WENT 2-5 ON THIS ROAD TRIP, THEY STILL ONLY FIND THEMSELVES FIVE GAMES OUT OF THE DIVISION LEAD. TRAILING BOTH THE PHILLIES AND BRAVES. >>>STILL TO COME ON GEICO “SPORTSNITE,” WE’LL GET YOU THE LATEST ON THE INJURY FRONT FOR THE METS, ROBINSON CANO THE YANKS’ AARON JUDGE AND MORE. STICK AROUND. Thanks for the

THE YANKEES HAVE BEEN RUMORED TO BE THE FAVORITE TO LAND DALLAS KEUCHEL. THE METS COULD USE THE HELP FROM SOMEONE LIKE DRAKE KEM BILL. THE MANAGER SAID THE — CRAIG KIMBREL. THE MANAGER SAID THEY WILL NOT GET CANO UNTIL MONDAY AT THE EARLIEST. HE HAS BEEN ON THE IL SINCE MAY 22nd WITH AN INJURY HE SUFFERED RUNNING OUT A GROUND BALL. SPEAKING OF PLAYERS INCHING CLOSER TO A RETURN, AARON JUDGE TOOK THE NEXT STEP IN HIS REHAB AND HIT IN THE INDOOR CAGES AT YANKEES STADIUM SUNDAY. HEAD TO TAMPA AS HE RAMPS UP HIS BASEBALL ACTIVITIES IN ANTICIPATION OF EVENTUAL REHAB GAMES.>>>JOINING JUDGE IN TAMPA WILL BE RIGHT-HANDER DYLAN BETANCES. BUT HAS BEEN RUNNING ON AN ANTIGRAVITY TREADMILL AND HITTING OFF THE TEE. AARON BOONE ALSO SAID TROY TULOWITZKI IS QUOTE PRETTY MUCH OVER HIS INJURY.>>>THE MLB DRAFT STARTS MONDAY NIGHT AS THE YANKEES AND METS WILL LOOK FOR THE NEXT AARON JUDGE OR PETE ALONZO. BUT ONE FORMER MET PITCHER AND CURRENT FRONT OFFICE EXEC WILL BE PAYING EXTRA ATTENTION THIS YEAR. AS AL LIGHTER’S SON JACK LIGHTER IS PROJECTED TO GO IN THE FIRST ROUND. JACK LIGHTER WHO’S CURRENTLY A STAR PITCHER AT DELL BARTON HIGH SCHOOL IN NEW JERSEY IS A PROJECTED FIRST ROUND TALENT AND BOTH THE METS AND YANKEES WOULD LOVE TO HAVE HIM. THAT’S ALL FOR GEICO “SPORTSNITE.”
