Boomer and Craig spent a good chunk of the morning talking about the struggling Yankees but made time for a visit from Donnie Wahlberg and a call from Jets GM Mike Maccagnan.
The General Manager of the Jets, Mike Maccagnan, called Boomer and Craig to recap the draft and the conversation began, of course, with second-round pick Christian Hackenberg. The guys asked Maccagnan what the Jets saw in the former Penn State quarterback and Maccagnan reiterated that they like his upside and potential. Maccagnan also discussed attempts to trade down at points and revealed that the Jets had some interest Paxton Lynch and still like Bryce Petty. Maccagnan then gave an update on the Ryan Fitzpatrick and Muhammad Wilkerson contract negotiations. Finally, "Mikey Macc" touched on the Laremy Tunsil situation and provided some insight on first-round pick Darron Lee. The bottom line with Maccagnan? He likes Hackenberg. And Fitzpatrick. And Geno. And Petty. And just about everyone else the guys named.
Donnie Wahlberg Is A New Kid On The Block Turned Middle-Aged Man on NYC Streets
"Blue Bloods" star Donnie Wahlberg joined Boomer and Craig live in the Allstate Studio to talk about his hit CBS show and his legendary band New Kids On The Block. Wahlberg talked about life as both a TV star and member of a beloved boy band. The Patriots fan also discussed Tom Brady's suspension and his burger chain Wahlburgers.
Jerry starts things off with the Mets, who took care of the Braves 4-1 behind three first-inning home runs and eight scoreless IP from Bartolo Colon. After a quick detour into the origins of names, Jerry brings us back to baseball. The Yankees keep losing and Brian Cashman isn't very happy. The guys ponder what Cashman can do to fix the Yanks and wonder when it is no longer considered early in the season. Finally, the Thunder and Spurs game ended with a controversial no-call and the Cavaliers won.
Boomer and Craig start the morning off with Yankees talk after Brian Cashman addressed the media and put the team on notice. Is it time to panic in the Bronx?
The Mets continue to hit home runs and win as they get another stellar performance from the ageless wonder Bartolo Colon.
Plus, later in the show Craig plans to tell Jets GM Mike Maccagnan that they shouldn't be excited about Geno Smith because he can't play QB.
The guys were live from Boomer Esiason's Golf Outing to raise funds to fight and beat CF. Along with stories about CF and how Boomer became involved, the guys talk NFL Draft, the Yankees disaster weekend in Boston and the Giants snapping the Mets 8 game winning streak. All that, plus NBA and NHL playoff updates!
Jerry was on his game to begin the work week, recapping a busy sports Sunday.
The Yankees got swept up in Boston, with Recco eventually sparking a conversation about the eyesight of radio announcers John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.
The Mets got beat by Madison Bumgarner and the Giants to put an end to their eight-game winning streak.
Jerry also had the latest on the NBA playoffs.
Boomer and Craig were live Monday morning from the Long Island Golf Club in Glen Oaks for Boomer's charity golf tournament to raise funds and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis.
The guys recapped a busy sports weekend, including all the goings-on at the NFL Draft, including the Jets selecting another quarterback. Both the Yankees and the Mets lost on Sunday, with the lowly Bombers getting swept in Boston.
As a result, there were a lot of unhappy baseball fans listening in.

With Boomer out of the country, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie filled in admirably, as he and Craig tacked a whole host of subjects, including the NFL Draft and Al Dukes' quirks. The guys got a visit from Baron Davis, shared countless laughs throughout the morning and it's safe to say that fun was had by all.
Baron Davis Was Not Abducted By Aliens (At Least He Doesn't Remember)
Craig and Governor Christie were happy to welcome former NBA'er Baron Davis, who stopped by to promote his documentary, 'The Drew: No Excuse, Just Produce' - which premieres tonight (4/29) on Showtime @ 8pm - and share a few laughs with Craig and Governor Christie. From playing for the Knicks, to not being abducted by aliens, a lot was covered in this spirited conversation.
With both the Mets and the Yanks idle Thursday night, Jerry Recco delivered the goods on the first round of the NFL Draft - focused primarily on the locals - during the majority of this installment of his wildly popular update series.
As the Blonde Bomber paraded up to Canada with his hockey playing buddies - Craig was joined by his old friend, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in the Allstate Studio Friday morning and the two of them got things started by offering their reaction following the first round of the NFL Draft. The Giants drafted Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple with the 10th pick, while the Jets used the 20th selection to take Apple's Buckeye teammate, linebacker Darron Lee. Craig advised the Governor to treat the four hours as a tryout, perhaps a career after politics awaits Mr. Christie. Well, there ya' have it folks. You know the drill, it's a Friday, now start actin' like it.

Today's installment is almost certain to bring a smile to your face as we heard the Dynamic Radio Duo discuss a lot of baseball, as the Mets and the Yankees appear to be heading in opposite directions. The Islanders beat the Lightening, so that came-up. NFL Draft talk, NBA Playoffs, it's all here folks.
The Islanders got a win in Game One of their second round series with the Lightening, and their radio play-by-play guy Chris King is making a name for himself, so much so Mr. King was featured in Thursday's highly anticipated 'Moment of the Day'.
It's been said that an update by Jerry Recco is an update like no other and this latest installment of this on-going series was further proof of the claim. Thursday morning the 'update maven' had a lot to get to and the know how to do so, so he began with the low-hanging fruit that is the New York Mets, winners of six in-a-row after last night's 5-2 win over the Reds. Plus, the Yanks fell to the Rangers 3-2 in Texas, the Islanders won the first game of their second round series with the Lightening by a score of 5-3, the NFL Draft gets underway tonight, the Warriors win and advance and much more.
Harvey Deals, Walker Hits, Mets Win (Again) And More
As has been the case as of late, Boomer & Craig started their wildly popular radio program Thursday morning by discussing a win for their beloved New York Mets. Technically the Islanders were the first subject talked about at length, but Craig didn't bother to participate in that portion of the show - and for good reason I might add. Anyway, Wednesday night at Citi Field - with Matt Harvey on the hill - those Amazin' Mets finished off a sweep of the Reds with a 5-2 win, improving to 13-7 in the process. Additionally, we heard about Al Dukes' morning routine - which consists primarily of eating oatmeal and complaining. Finally Misss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach (Hellooooo!!!!) threw out the first pitch last night in Flushing, how 'bout that?!?!
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. The guys got after it early and often on this action-packed edition of the Morning Extravaganza, beginning with the Mets and Yoenis Cespedes, who made the most of his one at-bat in the Mets 4-3 win over the Reds. Additionally, the Yanks continue to underwhelm, frustrated Ranger Dan Boyle has some things to say to a couple reporters, a visit from the wife of a real American hero, NFL Draft talk and much more.
With the idea of the Jets trading Mo Wilkerson to the Saints for Drew Brees and the movie 'Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory' running through his head, Craig did some singing, which was magically turned into Wednesday's 'Moment of the Day'.
With the NFL Draft right around the corner, Booemr & Craig found themselves discussing some possible personal moves, specifically the idea of the Jets, who are in the market for QB trading Muhammad Wilkerson for Drew Brees.
Christina Lemm Fondly Remembers Her Heroic Husband Joseph
Boomer & Craig welcomed Christina Lemm into the Allstate Studio Wednesday morning so that she could let everyone know the kind of hero she married. Christina's husband Joseph was a decorated NYPD detective, known affectionately as 'Superman', who died while serving his country in Afghanistan. For more information on 'The Joe Lemm Memorial Celebrity Basketball Game' - which will take place Friday May 6, at Carnesecca Arena beginning at 7 p.m. - you can click here.
The Mets prevail thanks to Yoenis Cespedes and David Wright's work with their respective bats, leading to a 4-3 win over the Reds. The Yankees got a less than stellar performance from Luis Serevino, leading to a 10-1 beat down courtesy of the Rangers. Jerry Recco updated all of that, the NBA playoffs, Dan Boyle's breakdown and much more.
Yoenis Delights, Yanks Tread Water, Dogs At The Ballpark And More
Yoenis Cespedes delighted Mets fans Tuesday night at Citi Field when he belted a 7th inning, pinch-hit, three-run homer to help the Mets to a 4-3 win over the Reds. David Wright followed-up Cespedes' heroics with, what proved to be, a game-winning single in that same 7th frame. Boomer & Craig were all over the red hot Mets while starting things up Wednesday morning, who will turn to Matt Harvey tonight in Flushing, looking to complete the three-game sweep and win their sixth in-a-row overall. Craig was at the game and was not thrilled that he had to deal with the effects of the promotional 'bring your dog' night at the stadium. According to Craigie, the ballpark is no place for a four-legged friend, Boomer on the other-hand loves the idea. As for the Yankees, they took one on the chin in Texas, falling to the Rangers by the lopsided score of 10-1, falling to 8-11 on the season and appear to be treading water. Furthermore with regards to the Bombers, word is Joe Girardi is not a fan of the shift, going as far as to says he thinks it should be illegal in baseball. All of that, a Ranger named Dan Boyle gets a little boisterous with a couple of reporters and much more.
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. It was all about Tom Brady's four game suspension early on, as the guys looked at the disciplinary act for the Pats' QB from just about every angle. We also heard the guys discuss the Mets, power-driven 5-3 victory over the Reds and the Yankees well-pitched victory over the Rangers. An informative conversation on survival, Phil Simms call-in and much more.
Phil Simms - that's Mr. Phil Simms to you and me - called in Tuesday morning for what supposed to be a brief chat with the Dynamic radio Duo that is Boomer Esiason & Craig Carton. This brief chat turned into a close to 20 minute conversation during which the upcoming NFL Draft was discussed at length. Mr. Simms sees a possible scenario that has the Jets trading up to draft Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch. We also heard all about how much things have changed since the days when Simms and Boomer were drafted way back when and got an idea what it's like to be Phil Simms these days.
Jerry Recco flexed his update muscles Tuesday morning, getting us all up to speed with the latest from the on-going 'Deflategate' nonsense, wins by both the Mets and the Yankees, some NBA news & notes and much more.
It was an excellent night for the baseball locals, as both the Mets and the Yankees prevailed on the diamond. Neil Walker continued his April power-surge with what proved to be a game-winner in the 8th, while Nathan Evoldi flirted with a no-hitter until the 7th. That's all well and good, but while getting things started Tuesday morning Boomer & Craig set all of that aside and focused in on the four-game suspension Tom Brady will presumably serve to start the season as a result of his involvement in the 'Deflategate' judicial odyssey. Round and round we go. As a Jets fan (and someone who predicted the Pats' golden boy would eventually serve said suspension) Craig was beyond thrilled. Boomer on the other-hand, he is a football analyst and for the sake of the sport he is not all that happy to hear the news, despite believing justice has been served. And there you have it, we call it talkin' it up on a Tuesday.
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. Today you'll get to hear Boomer vent about the Rangers and pretend that he is pulling for the Islanders, a lot of reaction to the baseball locals, the Jets covet a QB that may not be named Ryan Fitzpatrick, Cris Collinsworth calls in, so does Ralph Macchio. All of that and much more.
Ralph Macchio Runs Into Al Dukes In A Public Place
Ralph Macchiao is a dear friend of the show and after running into Al Dukes and his lovely girlfriend Gina at a Bruce Springsteen concert Saturday night, he called into to talk about the awkwardness that accompanied he run-in with Al. Ralph also happens to be a life-long Islanders fan, so he was sure to bring that up and the Mets were discussed as well. A real well-rounded conversation.
Boomer's good buddy Cris Collinsworth woke up early to call in Monday morning and when he did, a lot of football was discussed, specifically the upcoming NFL Draft and how it might play out for the Jets and the Giants.
After a restful weekend, Jerry Recco was at it again Monday morning, delivering an action-packed, informative and entertaining sports update. Jerry got started right after Al Dukes was airing his grievance with the length of Saturday night's Bruce Springsteen concert in Brooklyn. We heard about the Islanders ending their 23 year drought by winning a playoff series, Prince tributes were certainly plentiful over the weekend, the Yankees lost, the Mets won, Steph Curry's status is uncertain, Byron Scott is no longer the Lakers' head coach and much more.
After spending the majority of his weekend licking his wounds after the Rangers had their season ended abruptly, Boomer took his seat along side he Islanders jersey wearing (pictured) radio partner/BFF Monday morning prepared to discuss the latest developments in the world of New York sports. The Rangers of course made the cut, as did the Islanders - who actually advanced to the second round thanks to an OT winner, courtesy of Jonathan Tavares. We also heard about the Redskins inking Josh Norman to a deal, the Jets tried to trade-up to #1 (what's that say about Fitzpatrick?), Steph Curry suffers another injury to a lower-extremity, the Mets' road trip proved to be a good one, the Yanks win the series but lose a game (and A-Rod). And there you have it. It's a Monday, so make the most of it.
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. From a radio standpoint, this edition of the Boomer & Carton Morning Extravaganza was a good one. If you're a fan of the Rangers, or the Yankees for that matter, your take may be a little different. With that said, the guys covered all of that and then some. On top of that it's Friday, so that's good too.
Boomer was not thrilled Friday morning because of the Rangers brutal, 5-0 loss to the Penguins and because of that he did some lashing out, which we heard during this highly anticipated 'Moment of the day'.
Poor Jerry Recco found himself between a rock & a hard place Friday morning when it came to delivering his informative and entertaining update. The reason behind the no-win situation Jerry found himself in was a combination of an embarrassing effort courtesy from the New York Rangers and Boomer's love for the Blue Shirts. In addition to the Rangers 5-0 loss to the Penguins - which Jerry eventually got to - we also heard about another loss for the Yankees, Jake Arrieta throws a no-hitter, an NBA playoff roundup was included and much more.
An Embarrassing Rangers' Effort Has The Booms Feeling Blue
It was inevitable, after his beloved Blue Shirts got thumped by the Penguins 5-0 at the Garden, Boomer was not going to be denied in his desire to talk about the Rangers, who now trail Pittsburgh 3-1 in the series. Fully understanding what he was up against, Craig allowed his radio partner/BFF to get it all off of his chest and the Blonde Bomber did just that, babbling on and on, and on. Craig did manage to mention the sad news of Prince's passing, the Yankees inability to win a baseball game, as well as the no-hitter thrown by Cubs' ace Jake Arrieta. Other than that, 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 Duo were all over it, and by 'it' we're talking of course about what could only be described as a brutal night of results for the sports locals. Not to worry though, the Dynamic Radio Duo are here for you and for that, you should be collectively grateful.
An update from Jerry Recco is really an update like no other. With that said, even after a night that saw the Mets, Yankees and Islanders all lost, the 'update maven' still found a way to entertain, while Craig shows signs of warming up to baseball's 'stat cast' way of thinking, or at least he was very impressed by the velocity with which the Yankees Aaron Hicks threw the baseball from his outfield position.
Thursday's action-packed start to the Boomer & Carton Morning Extravaganza was focused on a bunch of losing, after the Mets, Yanks and Islanders all lost their respective athletic endeavors. We also got to hear about all of the NFL movin' n shakin' as the Eagles trade up and the Panthers call Josh Norman's bluff, making the standout defensive-back an unrestricted free-agent. The Knicks coaching search continues after the Timberwolves hire Tom Thibodeau to run things in Minnesota. So we had all of that and then some, how 'bout that.

We heard about the Mets' power-surge after they put up an 11 spot in Philly, the Yanks struggles continue after a 3-2 loss in 11 innings to the A's, the Rangers lose game 3 at MSG, Boomer doesn't plan on leaving Craig's side anytime soon and much more.
After listening to his radio partner/BFF Craigie spit a little free-style rap, Boomer decided to join the rhyming game. Jerry Recco heard the Blonde Bomber's effort and turned it into his highly anticipated 'Moment of the Day' - which should tell you all that you need to know.
Mets Overwhelm The Phils, Yanks Underwhelm In The Bronx And The Booms Is Staying Put
As is generally the case this time of year, Craig was forced to sit through a brief period at the start of the show when Boomer babbles on about the Rangers - blah-blah-blah- - who went down 2-1 to the Penguins after losing 3-1 at MSG Tuesday night. With that painfully behind us, Craig took the lead and made a much needed shift in focus, pushing the oh-so powerful Mets to the forefront after they overwhelmed the Phillies down at Citizens Bank Park, belting six home runs in their 11-1 win. Logan Verrett impressed once again on the mound and Craig thinks he deserves a spot in the rotation, going as far as to call Matt Harvey the weakest link in the rotation. The Mets have now won five of their last six games. Conversely, the Mets' A.L. counterpart have lost five of their last six. Last night in the Bronx it took 11 innings before the Yankees were declared a 3-2 loser, as the A's emerged victorious in the first game of a three-game set. Additionally we were assured by Boomer that he has no plans to shun the Morning Extravaganza in favor of joining Kelly Ripa after her co-host Michael Strahan, announced his plans to leave Live with Kelly and Michael to join Good Morning America.

Once again, when called upon the boys delivered, and did so in a big way. Thanks to their focus and commitment to excellence, you the fan will be treated to all sorts of goodness, beginning with the Knicks as Phil Jackson is preparing to host a 'triangle camp', the 'Viking' that is Noah Syndergaard once again put forth a 'Herculean' effort in improving to 2-0 on the young season and because of that the Mets beat the Phillies 5-2, the Jets are waiting for a visit from Brian Hoyer, the Rangers are preparing to host a Game 3 and much more.
Noah Syndergaard is currently all the rage in New York and for good reason. The strapping young right-hander once again made the case for being the Mets' 'ace' among 'aces' Monday night in Philadelphia, improving to 2-0 and looking dominant while doing so. Jerry Recco was sure to update the Mets 5-2 win down the Turnpike, but he didn't stop there as the update maven including some Rex Ryan audio, as the Bills' head coach shared an interesting anecdote while introducing Presidential hopeful Donald Trump at a rally up in Buffalo. We heard all about Phil Jackson's forthcoming 'triangle seminar', Tom Thibodeau and Jeff Van Gundy reportedly set to interview for Timberwolves' head coaching vacancy, Kevin Durant's forgettable night against the Mavs and much more.
Tuesday morning brought us a brought us a broad range of topics for Boomer & Craig to discuss, as Phil Jackson is making plans to host a 'triangle camp' - which Carmelo Anthony will reportedly not attend - and the Mets won down in Philly thanks too another great Noah Syndergaard performance and David Wright's first two home runs of the season. We also heard the great news that the deGrom baby is home safe & sound, Boomer says Brian Hoyer has plans to visit with the Jets regarding their uncertainty at quarterback and his eagerness to play the position and the Rangers set to host the Penguins tonight at MSG, looking to taker a 2-1 series lead.

Clearly you know how to get your week off on the right foot, as today youre being rewarded with the Dynamic Duo's latest takes on such topics as the suddenly streakin' New York Metropolitans, as well as Yankees after they got a long-ball courtesy of Alex Rodriguez. Boomer was sure to bring-up the NHL playoffs as the Islanders and the Rangers are winning some games, the Nets hired a new coach, Phil Jackson is busy being Phil Jackson, a history and geography lesson of sorts and much more.
From time to time on the Boomer & Carton Morning Extravaganza things can get a little off the rails, which was the case Monday morning while the ever-capable Jerry Recco did his best to provide the details associated with the Yankees 4-3 win over the Blue Jays, Craig's mind had a different agenda. Well because of that, we learned what direction one might want to travel if they are interested in going to Japan and a whole bunch about Moses.
Jerry Recco is in the sports update business and Monday morning, business was good. So after Craig was through talking about Axel Rose's latest gig, it was up to Jerry to get down to business. We heard about wins for the Islanders, Mets and Yankees, an impromptu discussion about 'internal controls', the Nets hire local guy Kenny Atkinson to be their next head coach and much more.
Boomer & Craig got after it early-on Monday morning, discussing the weekend for the locals on the baseball diamond, as the Mets took two of three from the Indians out in Cleveland - the only setback occurring Saturday night when Matt Harvey was toeing the rubber (the now 0-3 Matt Harvey) - and the Yankees salvaged one of three out in Seattle, but did get a long-ball courtesy of Alex Rodriguez in Sunday's 4-3 win. Boomer was also sure to bring up the sport of hockey, as both the Islanders and the Rangers experienced some success on the ice - if you care about that sort of thing, the Booms sure does. The NBA Playoff are also underway, so it's kind of a busy time in the wide-world of sports.
