The Corner Booth Episode 3: Super Bowl, Mookie Trade, Mets and Knicks

Editors Note: Scors and I did this podcast last night and about twelve minutes after we hung up the Mookie Betts deal had been completed. Our live reaction to this stunning and league altering trade can be found on our Instagram account @procrastination_sports. Scors wrote this blog on the trade last night after it had been announced.

Episode 3 of the Corner Booth is out on both this here website and Spotify. In this week’s episode we discuss the Super Bowl. From the game to the commercials and Shakira and J-Lo we break down all of the action from last Sunday’s big game.

The Boston Red Sox have traded their star five-tool player Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Scors and I discuss the ramifications of the deal for both the National League West and the American League East. We also review the road to the World Series for the Dodgers and how the Red Sox move opens the door for the Yankees to continue to own and operate the East.

The show moves on to the New York Mets and the report that Steve Cohen, a minority owner of the team, has walked away from a deal that would have made him the majority owner. Rumors are circulating that the current owners, Fred and Jeff Wilpon have altered the deal and did so in such a way that Cohen grabbed his ball and went home.

Scors and I talk about our favorite basketball team, the New York Knicks, and their decision to fire/promote President of Basketball Operations Steve Mills 48 hours from the trade deadline. With rumors circulating about the team pursuing D’Angelo Russell and selling at the trade deadline, what will the team do?
