With the weekend so close you could taste it, the guys delivered yet another memorable performance, putting on display their unparalleled radio chops. We heard a lot about the dysfunctional Mets, Steven Matz's sore shoulder and pitch counts. We also heard some more about the embarrassment that is Ryan Lochte, Giants punter Jeff Brown will be suspended for Week 1, Thursday night's softball game in New Rochelle, concern for Dwight Gooden and much more.
Mets Dysfunction, 'Pitch Counts Matter', And Much More
The Mets began their four game series out in San Francisco with a 10-7 loss to the Giants Thursday, on a night that Jacob deGrom was not himself and Asdrubal Cabrera didn't make it to California in time to play in the game. Adding to the Mets despair, following the game we got word that Steven Matz will miss his start tonight due to shoulder soreness. In his last start, Matz - who has been battling bone spurs in his left elbow - flirted with a no-hitter and threw a total of 106 pitches, prompting Boomer to point out that, 'pitch counts matter'. So Boomer & Craig had a lot to get to on the Mets' front and with the Yankees having not played, the majority of the focus was on the defending NL Champs as they got this edition of the Morning Extravaganza underway. You know the drill folks, it's a Friday, now start actin' like it.

The guys had a lot to talk about during this action-packed edition of their wildly popular radio program, in addition to the Mets and Yankees, we heard a lot on the developing Ryan Lochte robbery story, Victor Cruz's football future, Devils great Ken Daneyko calls in and much more.
Boomer sure loves talking hockey, even if it's with a former Devil. Well Thursday morning, legendary Devils defenseman Ken Daneyko called to spread the word about this Saturday's (8/20) 'Devils Beach Bash'. As you could have probably predicted, Boomer took the opportunity to get all 'inside hockey' with Daneyko, before saying goodbye..
Did Lochte Lie? The Mets And Yankees Inadequacies And More
Boomer & Craig provided some reaction to losses by both the Mets and the Yankees, but the majority of Thursday's show open was focused on a few U.S. swimmers, namely Ryan Lochte, who may or not have robbed at gunpoint in Rio.

The guys were certainly on their radio game, for this the latest edition of the wildly popular radio program they co-host together. We heard about an encouraging Mets win, a brutal Yankees loss, the lovely Claudette called in a revealed she sleep on the sofa, Craig questions Carmelo Anthony's sincerity and much more.
While representing the United States over in Rio, Carmelo Antony has continued to make strides towards change, paying a visit to Rio's favelas, the city's poorest neighborhoods, on the team's day off. Craig is as big of a Carmelo supporter you'll find, but he his having a tough time buying that the Knicks star is being 100% genuine, while Boomer applauds Melo's efforts.
Noah Syndergaard belted his third home run, in his 10th win of the season Tuesday night, as the Mets got back on track in Arizona, with a 7-5 win. The Yankees on the other hand, they hosted the Blue Jays in the Bronx and were done in by a rain delay, blowing a six run lead and eventually losing to the high-powered Jays. So, Boomer & Craig had their talking points for the start of this action-packed, radio program.

A fella calling himself Mark - a lifelong Giants fan - called in Tuesday morning with the idea to talk about some Big Blue Football with Boomer & Craig, specifically first year Head Coach Ben McAdoo. As it turns out, the conversation was predominately between Craig and Mark and it was entertaining, if nothing else.
Yanks Getting Younger, While The Mets Are Getting Worse
It had been quite some time since Boomer & Craig found themselves in the cozy confines of the Allstate Studio, but Tuesday morning the boys reconvened, ready to roll. We heard about the new look Yankees, who seem to have a new energy and excitement surrounding the team. As for the Mets, despite their recent struggles, Boomer is still confident his 'Amazins' will make the playoffs. In the same breath, if they don't make the Postseason, the Booms believes Terry Collins should lose his job.
Lenny Dykstra Spends Some Quality Time With The Guys
Lenny Dykstra has had quite a life in and out of baseball, so he joined Boomer & Craig Tuesday morning to talk about it. Dykstra actually wrote a book, 'House of Nails: A Memoir of Life on the Edge' - which he was more than happy to talk about. We heard about his climb to stardom, losing all his teeth, his two regrets and much, much more.

With Boomer out and Chris Simms filling in again, Craig is ecstatic that the Yankees and Mets are even in record. Not only that but Craig show us his rock skills. Olympics are in full swing and Jets, thats right the gang green, are in action tonight. Craig and the gang will surely not disappoint with today's show.
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. Today it took the power of two to replace the vacationing Boomer, as Craigie was joined by both Chris Christie and Chris Simms. As has been the case all week thus-far, it was a whole lot of talk about Alex Rodriguez, despite the once feared slugger not even getting an at-bat in the Yanks 5-3 loss in Boston. Like Boomer, Jerry Recco was also absent, so update duties were left to Chris Lopresti, the NJ Governor's lovely wife called in and much more.
With Jerry taking a 'Recco' day, it was up to the ever-capable Chris Lopresti to update the masses Wednesday morning, during which it was clear that the 'update maven' had prepared his young, understudy well.
It's been said that 'two is company, but threes a crowd', so make of that what you will. I tell you this because with Boomer out once again, it was up to the trio of Craig, NJ Gov. Chris Christie and Chris Simms to hold things down Wednesday morning. Give a listen to how that went, as the guys discussed the latest on the ever-evolving Alex Rodriguez retirement finale, which kicked off with a 5-3, Yankee loss in Boston and A-Rod himself, not even getting off the bench.
You can listen to — and download — all of the memorable audio from Tuesday’s edition of the Boomer & Carton Morning Extravaganza in one nice little package for your convenience. Early on it was Craig and Chris Simms breaking things down Tuesday morning and then Mr. Bart Scott stopped by and made himself rather comfortable.
During this action-packed and informative segment we heard a candid conversation between Chris Simms and Bart Scott on PED's in the NFL and Chris revealed that Grandma Simms' had some rather large paws.
As will be the case for the rest of the week, Craig had Chris Simms by his side once again Tuesday morning and the two of them got after it early-on, beginning with the indelible career of one, Alex Rodriguez - which I'm sure you know by now, will come to an end Friday night in the Bronx. And away we go.
You can listen to — and download — all of the memorable audio from Monday’s edition of the Boomer & Carton Morning Extravaganza in one nice little package for your convenience. Craig had Chris Simms riding shotgun Monday and a 'retiring' Alex Rodriguez was on their minds. We also heard about the inconsistent Mets, the NFL's was forced to cancel the Hall of Fame, why Simms no longer considers Tom Brady a Top 5 NFL quarterback and much more.
For Simms' Money, Tom Brady Is No Longer A Top 5 QB
Chris Simms filled in for Boomer Monday morning and while doing so, was forced to defend his comments regarding Tom Brady. According to Simms, at the age of 39, Brady is no longer a top 5 QB in the NFL, putting Aaron Rodgers, Cam Newton, Russell Wilson, Ben Roethlisberger and Andrew Luck ahead of him.
Craig and Chris Simms got the ball rolling early Monday morning, as Boomer is off this week doing what ever a man of his stature does when not saddled with the responsibility of co-hosting this wildly popular radio program. The topic up for discussion was Alex Rodriguez's departure from the New York Yankees, as the once revered slugger will play his last game in pinstripes this Friday night in the Bronx.
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. With Governor Christie by his side, Craig tackled Friday's radio program, which was a good one, despite the absence of the Booms.
After a couple of road shows covering the football locals, Friday morning Craig found himself back in the Allstate Studio, but instead of having Boomer by his side, it was his old buddy Chris Christie helping his move things along. The Mets beat the Yankees 4-1 in the final game of this year's Subway Series - the two teams split the four game set - but it was all about Yoenis Cespedes as far as Craig and the NJ Governor were concerned, after the ripple effect of his golfing habit and DL stint reached a head prior to last night's game in the Bronx. You know the drill folks, it's a Friday, now start acting like it.
Boomer and Craig are joined by New York Jets GM Mike Maccagnan. The guys look forward to the upcoming season, while discussing the Jets offseason moves and finding out how the GM feels about the depth of the team.
