SBNY Podcast: Girardi & MLB Managers, Knicks Competing, & Giants Didn’t Lose This Week

Sports Blog New York Podcast

Today’s Sports Blog New York Podcast episode features a conversation about Joe Girardi and what to expect with the next Yankees manager. The manager position in baseball is clearly changing, what can we learn from the Mets hiring of Mickey Callaway. Also, the Knicks have won two games in a row, including a convincing win over the Cavaliers. The Cavs seem to have a real problem playing defense, but could it be that they just aren’t that good.

In other news, the Giants didn’t lose in week 8. But, the Jets didn’t fail to compete for three or so quarters before blowing a win they seemed to have in the bag. But, is this what the Jets and Todd Bowles want and need? Strong competition while still not winning might be a win-win scenario. Especially for saving Todd Bowles job.

“If you didn’t like ‘Binder Joe’, this next Yankees Manager will be worse” with following analytics.

Host Peter Kennedy and guest Alec Argento are confident the next Yankees manager will be equal, if not more, analytics driven then Joe Girardi. So if Binder Joe drove you crazy, it may be more of the same come 2018. ALso, do the Mets even spend money on analytics? Will Mickey Callaway partake?

Can the Knicks be fun this season? It seems they are competing at a higher level then years past. Plus, we hear inspiring words from Steve Mills about organizational direction.

Jets fans, are you happy watching Josh McCown lead the Jets on Sundays? Do you want or expect to see the young Quarterback this season? Josh McCown has never played 16 games in a season but it looks like he might in 2017-18. Is that good or bad for the Jets franchise and should they let the young guys get a chance later in the year?
