First up, Chris McShane and Brian Salvatore talk about the recent string of injuries and the lack of Mets' depth in the corner infield positions (2:06), and then Steve Schreiber—courtesy of Ron Darling and Gary Cohen—brings us a culinary delight in Pittsburgh as part of "This Week in SNY" (34:39).

Lukas Vlahos next introduces a new segment (36:58), before freelance sportswriter Mike Vorkunov (@Mike_Vorkunov) joins Chris for a chat about the Mets and beyond (45:04). Mike recently wrote a piece on velocity—using Noah Syndergaard as a case study—for Vice Sports, and profiled Adam Eaton and Julio Urias for USA Today. He also has a personal blog, where he's been interviewing reporters about their lives and jobs.

We then get a discussion of Hansel Robles from Aaron Yorke (1:06:57), Bryan Renzi takes a look at two forgotten Mets who were picked in the first round of the draft (1:11:56), and a weekly check-in with the Panic City Meter, courtesy of Kate Feldman (1:22:00).
