It's always a fun Yankees-Red Sox debate when Jarred Carrabis hops on the airwaves with John Jastremski. Add in Mets fan Evan Roberts and you got yourselves some terrific radio. 

Listen to your team news NOW.

Barstool Sports' Carrabis discussed the Mets chances of keeping their run going and making the playoffs. 

"There's too many teams in front of them that are arguably better than them," Carrabis said on WFAN Tuesday. "They had to have this herculean effort just to get to this point. What's the sustainability here? Are they going to play .700 ball the rest of the way? Probably not. But I hope that they make it interesting because I love Conforto. That's a guy I want to see on the big stage again. I want to see Marcus Stroman maybe pitching in a do or die Wild Card game." 

Who has the better chance of making the playoffs ...the Mets or Red Sox? 

"At this point, I think it is the Mets," said Carrabis. "I think that's just a numbers thing. I think statistically they do have a better shot of making the playoffs than the Red Sox." 

You would think that being a diehard Red Sox fan means that Carrabis hates the Yankees ...right? 

"I don't hate the Yankees. A guy that hates the Yankees would vomit at the sight of a Yankee coming up to me and giving me a hug. I can hug them. I have them on my phone. When Gio Urshela fouled two baseballs off his leg and fell to the ground, I felt physical pain for him."

Does that mean that Carrabis is a phony?

"How does that make me a phony? I have many, many friends in Major League Baseball who are incredibly more talented than the Yankees players I'm friends with on that team," he said. "I don't need to be friends with them. Have you heard of the name Christian Yelich? The MVP of the National League ... dear friend of mine. We caught up today. They're good guys. They're easy guys to root for. Luke Voit. Gio Urshela ... easy guys to root for."
