SORT BY Relevancy
In the "Jenrry Mejia's hair deserves its own edition" edition, Rob and Jeffrey talk about Jenrry Mejia's hair, natch'. We also preview the 2014 Mets infield, which mostly devolves into a discussion of David Wright's future Hall of Fame case. Chris McShane helps out too, sitting down with Mike Vorkunov of the Star-Ledger to see where the Mets shortstop and first base situation currently stand. Then we continue our NL East preview with the Atlanta Braves, and Talking Chop's Ben Duronio. It's a cast of thousands on Amazin' Avenue Audio! Finally, we wrap up with your e-mails, and Jeffrey's most recent failure at Mets Trivia.
In the "You should all feel bad for telling Jon Rauch to kill himself on twitter" edition, Rob and Jeffrey wrap up our 2014 preview with the bullpen, which we are not excited about (the preview that is, but also, probably the bullpen). So that leaves plenty of time to discuss the fifth starter situation, just how many first basemen the Mets are going to carry, and to check in on our sister podcast, Shortstop Avenue. We wrap up with some college baseball talk, a couple of e-mails, and the beginning of a triumphant winning streak at Mets trivia.
In the "It would be convenient if they gave #56 to an interesting prospect this Spring, but I forgot that it's Scott Rice's number" edition. Rob and Jeffrey finally sit down to talk about the Amazin' Avenue Top 25 Mets prospect list, but first they spend ten minutes talking about the 2008 Mets bullpen for some reason. #blameAyala. We also answer your e-mails about...shortstops...again.
In the "[redacted] is the only Met to wear #59" edition. Rob and Jeffrey (and Chris and Marc Carig) preview the 2014 Mets rotation. Will Jon Niese every be healthy and above-average at the same time? How fat can Bartolo Colon get? Do we have anything to say about Dillon Gee? Who exactly is going to be the Mets fifth starter? (Jeffrey makes a sad face) All these questions will at least be discussed. Plus, we debut the Shortstop Avenue Audio jingle, because of course we have shortstop e-mails to answer, and Jeffrey and Rob completely forget to do Mets trivia, which means Jeffrey doesn't get Mets trivia wrong.
In the "Tonight, Boss" edition, Rob and Jeffrey share their Santana no-hitter stories before launching into the 2014 Mets preview with the triumphant return of Outfield Avenue Audio (yes, we know we said we'd start with the infield, but we rarely stick to plans). Jeffrey says mean things about Eric Young despite his plans to only say nice things about Eric Young. Meanwhile, Rob is bullish on Curtis Granderson. Then, Liz Roscher of The Good Phight joins the show and has to put up with Jeffrey's merciless trolling of the Phillies offseason. Finally, we wrap up with your e-mail (singular) about playing for 2014, and whether Terry Collins can get the extra 2% out of the Mets. We hope Jonah Keri appreciates the free plug.
In the "The Assassination of Oliver Perez by the Coward Jerry Manuel" edition, Jeffrey and Aaron discuss all the new left-handed relievers the Mets have acquired. We break down both deals and discuss Steve Schreiber's MS Paintz skills, Alex Torres' haberdashery, and what the Mets gave up to shore up the 2015 pen. We also wonder if this is a precursor to a Dillon Gee trade (so far, not so much). We'll be back later in the week with your e-mails and our take on the Juan Lagares extension.
In the "Grand Slam Single" edition, imagine that, we're talking about a potential shortstop AND a trade the Alderson front office hasn't made. Yes, the Mets were (are) rumored to be interested in Ian Desmond, so Jeffrey and Greg bemoan having to still talk about shortstops, and then proceed to break down the pros and cons of a potential Desmond deal. That still leaves plenty of time to go over the 2015 Mets ZiPS projections and answer potentially incriminating e-mails. All in a week's work on Amazin' Avenue Audio.
In the "Live at Foley's 2: Podcast Harder" edition, Jeffrey, Chris, and Greg are Live at Foley's. And podcasting (harder). After a brief soujorn into terrible 90's music, it's time to preview the Mets minor league affiliates, or at least drool over the St. Lucie roster. Next, Ted Berg from USA Today (?!) joins the show to discuss the magic of small sample sizes, Jeff Francoeur, and Taco Bell breakfast. Then, Jeffrey butchers the Shortstop Avenue Audio theme after three beers, but we discuss Wilmer Flores' woes and reconsider some recent e-mails. That should be it, but the Mets played an incredibly weird baseball game last night, so look for the hidden track where Greg and Jeff discuss weird defense, weird pitch selection, and weird baseball.
In the “I guess apparently this is the Mel Rojas edition” edition, it’s slim pickings for both Mets news and Mets uniform numbers. That’s never stopped Rob and Jeffrey before though. On the agenda for this week: disparaging the Dice-K … Continue reading →
In Episode 54, Jason Parks of Baseball Prospectus stops by the show to chat about his Mets Top 10 prospect list. Unsurprisingly, Jeffrey and he spend almost the entire time talking about Dominican teenagers, or prospects that were at one time Dominican teenagers.
In the "“The Podcast is also cursed. That’s bad, but it comes with your choice of shortstops. That’s good! The shortstops contain potassium benzoate. Uh… That’s bad” edition, after a series of calamities befell our hosts (including a dead cell phone during the Rule 5 draft), Greg and Jeffrey finally get around to recording a podcast. There isn't much more to talk about than there was last week, but there is the John Mayberry, jr signing, a Rule 5 draft recap, and the final Shortstop Avenue Audio of 2014 to cover. There is also a terrible cocktail of the week and a whole bunch of your e-mails. See you in 2015! (unless the Mets do something big in 2014, so see you in 2015)
In the Ralph Kiner edition, Jeffrey and Matt reminisce about Ralph, Sunday afternoon baseball, and WWOR. We also answer your emails on Mets prospects and potential TRAIDs the Mets should consider in 2014 before wrapping up with our take on … Continue reading →
