Yankees soar as Javier Baez, Mets players clap back at Mets fans, college football's return
Jack welcomes back Jonathan "JJ" Jaggard to the show as JJ's Yankees are playing baseball beter than anybody right now.
Prior to Saturday's loss in Oakland, the Bronx Bombers had won 13 straight, and the Red Sox have jumped back in to the AL's second Wild Card spot, potentially laying the groundwork for a Red Sox-Yankees Wild Card game for the ages if the standings hold through September. JJ, a diehard Yankees fan, explains how the Yankees have been able to flip the switch in the second half and reemerge as one of the AL's best teams after a disappointing first half of the season. They also touch on the NL MVP race, the Padres' nosedive out of the NL Wild Card and the latest drama from the New York Mets. Unhappy with receiving boos from the fans, Javier Baez, Francisco Lindor and Kevin Pillar have taken to signaling "thumbs down" towards the fans as their new celebration, after receiving boos from the fans. It's their way of "doing the same" to the fans. Meanwhile, the Mets went 2-11 vs. the Giants and Dodgers over the past two weeks and now stand 7.5 games back of the Braves' division lead. Jack and JJ provide an update on the latest news from across the sport, as well as an update on the league's standings heading into the month of September. Later, they briefly recap Week Zero of college football action and look ahead to Week 1, coming later this week.
