There's no bigger topic surrounding the defending NL champion Mets than the baffling downward spiral of Matt Harvey. The Dark Knight's pitching has fans and media alike scratching their heads.

We brought back Daily News Mets beat writer Kristie Ackert on Friday to discuss what's going on with Harvey and all the other key topics surrounding the Mets heading into Memorial Day Weekend.

Ackert weighed in on Harvey's decreased velocity, his fight to stay in the rotation and his no-show performance with the media earlier this week. She also gave us her take on what would serve Harvey best going forward. 

We also spend time talking about if Steven Matz is actually benefitting from Harvey stealing the spotlight as the Long Islander quietly is putting up an Amazin' season.

Ackert filled us in on what it was like to cover Bartolo Colon's home run, how David Wright's new routine is going, if anything can slow down Yoenis Cespedes and the too-long list of injured players. 

Oh, yeah, and we also talked about the '86 Mets who are being celebrated this weekend at Citi Field.

Anthony McCarron made  the case earlier this week that the 1996 Yankees were better than the ‘86 Mets. Grit. Guts and Glory, he argued.

This club and this season had everything, from drama and heartache to redemption and timeless tales and over all that loomed a fiery George Steinbrenner. Great baseball, too.

Coming on the heels of our ‘That’s Debatable’ topic, we invited the Daily News’ veteran baseball reporter to the podcast to dive deeper into what made that Bombers team so special ... even likeable.

We also get McCarron’s take on whether  Joe Girardi’s job is safe, what Derek Jeter’s future in baseball holds and whether A-Rod will ever get his day in the sun in Cooperstown.

We then switch gears and move across town and talk about the Mets’ current rotation concerns and the Amazin’ NL East battle with the Nationals.

Finally, McCarron gives us his take on Bryce Harper’s “Make Baseball Fun Again” campaign and talks about his concern for the future of the sport (let’s pick up the pace!).

It’s been a Giant offseason for Big Blue. Lots to talk about.

 DaWith that in mind, we welcomed Daily News Giants columnist Ralph Vacchiano back to the podcast for a spooky ‘Friday the 13th’ episode.

In this week’s “Daily News Sports Talk Podcast” we ask Vacchiano to grade GM Jerry Reese’s draft-night performance after he was outmaneuvered for his top two targets, plus he gives us a scouting report on the guys they did pick: CB Eli Apple and WR Sterling Shepard.

Vacchiano also weighs in on if the Giants were smart to pass up on Laremy Tunsil and gives us his take on Big Blue’s offseason free-agent spending spree.

We also quiz the News’ Giants guy about the over-stocked roster of running backs and the fans’ panic about the right side of the offensive line.

Plus, we give you bonus talk about horror movies, the Islanders and Mets.

Bongs, gas masks, plummeting draft stock, oh my!

Daily News NFL columnist Gary Myers makes a return to the podcast this week to take a look back at the wild, bizarre NFL Draft that we witnessed last week.

Myers recaps the drama that played out with top prospect Laremy Tunsil after a compromising video of him smoking weed using a gas mask was released minutes before the start of Thursday’s draft in Chicago.

We also discuss the Jets’ head-scratching decision to draft Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg in the second round, Giants GM Jerry Reese’s performance during the draft and Jared Goff or Carson Wentz as the better NFL QB.

Myers also weighs in on what’s the scarier scenario for our society ... Donald Trump as president or the Supreme Court hearing the Deflategate case.
