A Mets win, Harvey's shot at redemption, Ryan Fitzpatrick's future, an impressive Raptors win, Tom Brady's legal battle rages on and much more.
Jerry Recco has the update game pretty much all figured out, which he made clear Tuesday morning when he began with the Mets after their 7-1 win over the Nationals down in Washington. Bartolo Colon earned the victory and made it crystal clear that he had no intentions of contributing offensively. Plus, more news & notes from MLB as Clayton Kershaw dazzles and the Cubs lose again, Ryan Fitzpatrick has no plans to retire, the Raptors even things up with the Cavs after a 105-99 win, Draymond Green avoids a suspension for Game 4 and much more.
Colon, Harvey, Fitzpatrick And Brady - A Lot To Talk About
Thanks in large-part to Bartolo Colon, Tuesday was a good day to wake up a Mets fan. That's because Terry Collins took his show on the road down to Washington for a three-game set and the 'Amazins' proceeded to throttle the Nationals by a score of 7-1. Boomer is a dyed in the wool Mets fan, so he was pretty much grinning from ear-to-ear and Craig fancies himself a Mets fan as well, so he too had a certain glow if you will. Tonight down in our Nation's capital Matt Harvey will be looking to get on track and will be opposed by Stephen Strasburg. The aforementioned Dynamic Radio Duo discussed the Mets of course, as well as the latest news surrounding Ryan Fitzpatrick - who isn't ready to retire just yet - and Tom Brady, who if he gets his way, will be headed back to court.

A proud papa named Joe called in from Brooklyn Monday morning to tell Boomer & Craig all about the time his son had a catch with Nats' super-star pitcher Max Scherzer - which took place last Wednesday (May 17th) at Citi Field.
When Monday rolls around it's up to Jerry to flex his update muscles and for that we thank him. Today the 'update maven' was all over the winning ways of both the Yankees and the Mets, a Thunder blowout of the Warriors gives them a 2-1 series advantage, the Lightening go up 3-2 on the Penguins and much more.
It was a weekend full of winning with regard to the baseball locals, as both the Mets and the Yankees got it done in their respective series. The Mets hosted the Brewers over the weekend for a three-game set and with Noah Syndergaard on the mound Sunday afternoon, proceeded to finish off the series sweep. A little later Sunday afternoon the Yankees were in-action out in Oakland, and like their NL counterpart, they too completed a sweep, only their's was a four game sweep and the Bombers have now won five in-a-row. So between all of that baseball goodness and the Thunder's blowout of the Warriors, it was a Monday worth waking-up for.

The Yankees stuck to the blue-print and beat the A's in Oakland, Maury Povich and Under Armour founder Kevin Plank check-in, the 'deke play' and much more.
Maury Povich joined Boomer & Craig Friday morning and during their spirited chat, Mr. Povich unknowingly became a featured player in Friday's highly anticipated 'Moment of the Day'. - Which we heard shortly after Craig shared his admiration for the 'deke', after Daniel Murphy did some 'deking' against the Mets.
Boomer arranged to have his buddy Kevin Plank call in Friday morning. Plank is the CEO and founder of Under Armour and despite Craig's claim that Plank himself, sent him the brand new pair of Stephen Curry sneakers he was wearing, it turns out Boomer was behind it - which we really knew all along. Plank talked about landing the aforementioned Steph Curry, his relationship with Boomer, his love for horse racing and much more.
Maury Povich was in town Friday, so he made it a point to stop by the Allstate Studio so that he could visit with his old buddies, Boomer & Craig. From putting Mets' fans minds at ease with regard to Matt Harvey's struggles, to playing golf with Tiger Woods a couple of times, this conversation is certainly worth your time.
A Power Loss, Stiffness, Boiling Blood, Confusion and More
As the title indicates, this Jerry Recco update was well-rounded, getting you up to speed on all important happenings in the world of sports. A loss by the Mets led the way as Matt Harvey gets further humbled by Daniel Murphy and the Nats and Ron Darling didn't sound too thrilled with the former Mets' second baseman's defensive antics. The Yanks prevailed in Oakland as Ivan Nova paves the way for the Bombers' three-headed monster and john Sterling has a little difficulty in the radio booth. Plus, the Cavs roll over the Raptors to take a commanding 2-0 in the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals and much more.
Harvey Gets Hit Hard (Again), Now What? Yanks Prevail
Thursday night was supposed to be a Matt Harvey night at Citi Field, but the Mets 27 year-old starter failed to answer the bell and the now 3rd place Mets fell to Daniel Murphy and the 1st place Nationals by the lopsided score of 9-1. With speculation that he might be skipped for his next start and could even be headed to the DL, Boomer & Craig were all over the Harvey situation while getting this Friday edition of the Morning Extravaganza underway. You know the drill folks - it a Friday, now start actin' like it.

While filling in f.or Craigie Thursday morning, Phil Simms wasted little time making himself comfortable, so comfortable in fact, an early exchange between Mr. Simms and Boomer was Jerry Recco's highly anticipated 'Moment of the Day'.
Garth Brooks is a a country music super-star and he will be putting his talent on display this July 9th, at Yankee Stadium. With that said, the 54 year-old sure sounded like a fan while talking to the likes of Boomer Esiason & Phil Simms early Thursday morning. Mr. Brooks called the guys to promote his upcoming show in the Bronx and as it turns out, let the two former NFL quarterbacks know all about his admiration for both of them.
Wally Szczerbiak Thinks Hornacek Will Fit-In Just Fine
Wally Szczerbiak set his alarm early Thursday morning and made his way into the Allstate Studio so that he could sit-down with Boomer & Phil Simms - who was in for Craig all morning - and ease their collective angst with regards to reports that the Knicks will hire Jeff Hornacek to be their next head coach.
After our guy C-Lo did a more than admirable job filling in for the 'update maven' that is Jerry Recco on Wednesday's radio program, Jerry himself returned Thursday morning and was greeted by the Duo of Boomer & Phil Simms - who was sitting in for Craigie. Jerry got started with the story surrounding the Knicks, as reports have them hiring Jeff Hornacek to be their next head coach. Plus, the Warriors evened things-up with the Thunder in convincing fashion, the Yankees won in Arizona, the Mets took one on the chin courtesy of the Nats, the Penguins prevailed over the Lightening and we learned that Mr. Phil Simms - who was filling-in for Craigie - pays pretty close attention to the bodies of male athletes.
Phil Simms Makes Himself Pretty Comfortable While Talking About The Knicks
The great Phil Simms was sitting alongside Boomer Thursday morning, as the Giants legend agreed to fill-in for Craigie and the topic of the Knicks was at the forefront, as reports are circulating that Jeff Hornacek will be their next head coach. The two Blonde Bombers discussed all the moving parts that come along with coaching in the Big Apple, wondered what this move might mean for Phil Jackson's beloved 'Triangle Offense' and tried to figure out why Patrick Ewing continues to end-up on the outside looking in.

Plus, a call from a fella named Pete who had some questions about Craigie, LeBron and the Cavs thrash the Raptors, the Sixers win the NBA's Draft Lottery and much more.
Syndergaard The Stopper, The Yanks Lose Again And Cortisone Concerns
Boomer & Craig were thrilled to get things started with the Mets Wednesday morning, more specifically Noah Syndergaard, who continues to make it pretty clear that he is the Mets' best pitcher, just ask Bryce Harper. Syndergaard spearheaded a 2-0 Mets win over the Nationals and that had the Dynamic Radio Duo feeling pretty good. The Yankees on the other-hand are providing anything but good vibrations as of late and that trend continued last night in Arizona where the Yanks lost 5-3 to the Diamondbacks. All of that, the Cavs made easy work of the Raptors in Game One of the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals and Boomer expresses his dislike for cortisone shots after Mets young lefty Steven Matz gets one in his ailing left elbow.

The Dynamic Radio were busy Monday morning after an action-packed weekend of baseball that has Mets and Yankees fans talkin'.

A throw-down in Texas proves to be pretty one-sided, a gal named Kelly is having a baby and much more.
Jerry was out Friday as he was attending the wedding of a friend down in Florida and by design, he wasn't missed. With that said, when Monday rolls around, you know where to come in-order to get your sports update fix and this Monday morning the update maven was raring to go, looking to prove his worth
Yanks Continue To Make Strides, While The Mets Continue To Raise Concerns
It was a mixed bag for the Dynamic Radio Duo Monday morning as they could be heard discussing the suddenly struggling Mets, who got swept in Colorado over the weekend and have now lost four in-a-row. A team that has been touted for the starting pitching, seems to have three big question marks and they are Matt Harvey, Steven Matz and Jacob deGrom. Then we have the Yanks, who despite winning another series - their third straight series win - still find themselves seven games out of first place in the AL East. All of that, some fisticuffs in Texas between Rougned Odor and Jose Bautista and of course plenty of Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton. You're all very welcome.
You can listen to — and download — all of the memorable audio from Friday’s edition of the Boomer & Carton Morning Extravaganza in one nice little package for your convenience. This action-packed Friday edition of your favorite source of entertainment featured a lot of good stuff, including the latest news surrounding the Yanks and Mets, the NBA Playoffs, gender reveal parties, a visit from Bart Scott and much more.
Gary Myers is a columnist for the New York Daily News and in a recent piece thought it would be a good idea to take a few shots at Bart Scott, after the former NFL linebacker turned analyst - Scott can be seen weekly during the football season on CBS's 'The NFL Today' - shared his thoughts on Ryan Fitzpatrick's on-going negotiations with the Jets. With that said, Mr. Scott himself made his way into the Allstate Studio Friday morning to sit down with Boomer & Craig and address the unprovoked slights - without mentioning Myers by name - and it proved to be a very entertaining segment. In hindsight, it may not have been all that entertaining for the aforementioned Myers, but I think it served it's purpose.
With Jerry Recco waking up in sunny Florida Friday morning, the ever-capable Chris Lopresti was filling in for the 'update maven' and filling-in admirable. C-Lo covered the story surrounding the Yanks 7-3 win over the Royals, which was highlighted by Chase Headley's first home run and the Mets, who didn't provide any highlights in their 5-0 loss to the Dodgers in LA. Plus, the Thunder sent the Spurs home unhappy and will now start preparing to take on the Warriors in the NBA's Western Conference Finals, while the Sharks downed the Predators to advance to the NHL Western Conference Finals. All of that and poor C-Lo, the proud new father, had his gender reveal party put under the microscope.
Mets & Yanks Stick To The Script, Thunder Send The Spurs Home And Everybody Loves The Gronk
So the Yankees just keep winning series, taking out the Royals in the Bronx Thursday night by a score of 7-3. Don't look now, but the Yanks have won five of their last seven and will host the White Sox for a three-game set this weekend. The Mets were up against it in LA and by 'it' we mean Clayton Kershaw, who pitched his Dodgers to a 5-0 win and to Craig's dismay, Chase Utley not only went 3-4 with a home run, he also finished the game unscathed. The Thunder beat the Spurs convincingly, sending the 67 win team home unhappy and writing their own ticket to a match-up with the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals in the process. Finally, Rob Gronkowski will go from the cover of GQ to the cover of 'Madden NFL 17' and according to Craig, everybody - even Jets fans - loves the Gronk. You know the drill folks, it's a Friday, now start actin' like it...
You can listen to — and download — all of the memorable audio from Thursday’s edition of the Boomer & Carton Morning Extravaganza in one nice little package for your convenience. The Dynamic Radio Duo were on their game today, as they could be heard fawning over Noah Syndergaard for his heroics out in LA and for good reason. The Yankees lost to the Royals in the Bronx, Michael Pineda's struggles continue, the Warriors win and advance, Boomer has some things to say and much more.
After Craig got through sharing some words of wisdom that he lives his life by - one nugget coming courtesy of the late George Steinbrenner and the other from 'some 80 year old man who is sill alive' - Boomer got to wondering if perhaps anything he has said over the years resonated with his radio partner/BFF??? From there, all hell pretty much broke lose and lots of laughter could be hard bellowing from the Allstate Studio.
Jerry Recco got after it Thursday morning, updating us on a loss by the Yanks, as well as a win by the Mets. The Yanks pitchers had a tough night, starting with starter Michael Pineda right on down to reliever Nick Goody - who was prominently featured in this action-packed segment. As for the Mets, it was all about Noah Syndergaard, who lead by example - belting two home runs and earning the win. All of that, the Warriors are moving on and Seattle Seahawks wide-receiver Ricardo Lockette will retire at the age of 29 due to a neck injury.
Syndergaard Stars, Pineda's Struggles And Much More
Noah Syndergaard did it all for the Mets in LA. Not only did the young fire-baller hurl eight innings of two run-ball, but the one they appropriately call 'Thor' also went deep twice, providing all of the offense in the first place Mets' 4-3 win. The Yankees hosted the Royals in the Bronx, but thanks in large-part to another sub-par performance courtesy of Michael Pineda, the Bombers lost 7-3. Boomer & Craig began this Morning Extravaganza by talking some baseball and a little basketball, as Steph Curry & the Warriors win and advance.
You can listen to — and download — all of the memorable audio from Wednesday’s edition of the Boomer & Carton Morning Extravaganza in one nice little package for your convenience. What a Wednesday we had thanks to the Dynamic Radio Duo. Boomer & Craig were all over both the Mets - who lost late in LA - and the Yanks - after the Bombers put up a 10 spot to beat the Royals in the Bronx. Steph Curry won another MVP, Russell Westbrook is pretty damn good in his own right, shame on Mike Piazza, Joe Montana stopped-by and much more.
Based on their past, it's hard to say if Boomer was happy to see Joe Montana Wednesday morning when the legendary signal-caller stopped-by the Allstate Studio to visit with him and Craigie. Montana himself didn't help matters either by taking a shot at Boomer's ever escalating cholesterol shortly after sitting down. Give a listen to hear how the rest of this spirited conversation played out.
After taking issue with the Mets back in March for profiting from the sale of the post 9/11 Mike Piazza jersey, Wednesday morning Craig called out Piazza himself for also, apparently profiting off of the terrible tragedy with the sale of some personalized autographed baseballs.
Jerry Recco had a tough time keeping to the script Wednesday while delivering his first update of the morning and it's safe to say Boomer & Craig were to blame - 'the' Eddie Scozzare didn't help matters much either. So after he updated everything that needed updating, Jerry locked horns with Boomer about the idea that the Mets are too reliant on the home run.
Yanks Are Rollin', Mets Stumble, NBA Greatness And A Jet Size Problem
Boomer & Craig did their very best to get you over the hump on Wednesday and they were assisted by a whole host of discussion worthy topics, the least being the NHL Playoffs, which is a fact lost of on the hockey lovin' Blonde Bomber. So after the Booms was through boring everyone nearly to death, it was time to talk hoops after Steph Curry took home his second straight NBA MVP Award and Russell Westbrook led the Thunder to a big time win in San Antonio. As for the baseball locals, the Yanks prevailed in the Bronx, topping the defending World Champion Royals 10-7. The Mets were out in LA and lost it late, falling 3-2 to the Dodgers. Additionally, Craig is a little troubled by the latest news on the Jets' quarterback front because it sure sounds as if Brandon Marshall is preparing for life with out Ryan Fitzpatrick. Cragie calls that 'problematic'.

The Yankees and Mets both won, providing plenty of story lines in the process, as Aroldis Chapman made his debut in Pinstripes and Steve Matz continues to make a claim to be the Mets ace. Al Dukes recalled his prom night, Maureen offered Craig some advice on a possible case of herpes in his eye and much more.
Boomer & Craig took a call from a lovely gal named Maureen and she sounded very concerned about Craig's eye problem. Maureen once had a similar situation that turned out to be a form of herpes - so there's that.
Jerry Recco is responsible for delivering informative and entertaining updates when called upon and sometimes while doing so, he'll offer up his own commentary on certain stories, Tuesday was one of those times. We heard all about wins by the Yankees and the Mets, as well as Steph Curry's historic return and much more. As for Jerry's take, he believes the first place Mets are way too dependent on the long-ball. And there you have it.
Chapman Debuts, Mets Roll, Curry Shines And Craig Struggles To See
Aroldis Chapman made his debut for the Yankees in the Bronx last night, was greeted warmly by the fans, hit triple-digits on the radar gun and the Bombers beat the Royals 6-3. The Mets played a little later out in LA, had Steven Matz on the mound and beat the Dodgers by a score of 4-2. From the baseball locals to Steph Curry's historic return on the hardwood, Boomer & Craig had plenty to discuss early-on Tuesday morning and Craigie was doing so while less than 100%, as Boomer's radio partner/BFF was dealing with could be a pretty serious eye issue.

Boomer & Craig wasted no time getting things rolling Monday morning, beginning with the baseball after Matt Harvey got himself back on track with a 10 K performance and the Mets now sit all alone atop the NL East. The Yankees took one on the chin in the Bronx on Sunday night, but did manage to take two of three from the Red Sox over the weekend. All of that and Craig proved that he had ice-water in his veins Friday night, draining nine of 10 free-throws in-front of a raucous crowd at Carnesecca Arena. While doing so, Craigie also learned something about Super Bowl winning head coach Bill Cowher, which was sure to share. All in all, a solid pretty start to the week.
