SORT BY Relevancy
Gather round our large metal pole, one and all, as we discuss strength-to-weight ratios, Mets dinner companions, air a whole lot of grievances and perform feats of strength on Amazin' Avenue Audio. There is only one way to wrap up a wacky, weird, 2015 year on the pod, and that is with a Festivus (though probably not a Cespedes) for the rest of us.
P.S. We also answer your e-mails, because Jeffrey was not letting them sit until 2016, and anyway the whole thing didn't take as long as he thought it would.
In Episode 170 of Amazin' Avenue Audio, Jeffrey and Brian banter about books and bad Binghamton promotions before answering your e-mails on the value of a compensation pick, the Mets contention window, a potential Matt Harvey extension, a potential Matt Harvey trade, re-signing Juan Uribe, the 2016 Mets lineup (those last five are all one e-mail, le sigh), old Latin pitchers, and our annual game of guess the minor league rosters. There is also news on the IFK Goteborg front, and Jeffrey plugs the Baseball Prospectus Annual a few times.
In Episode one-hundred-and-nice of Amazin' Avenue Audio, Jeffrey and Greg discuss Sandy's sense of humor, how good the 2016 Mets might be, who is the best shortstop prospect in the organization, and answer your e-mails on prospects, Cespedes, the DH, and whether the Mets are the best team in baseball. We wrap things up with another IFK Goteborg update and a list of all the mediocre European and Canadian detective procedurals Jeffrey has been watching lately.
In Episode 168 of Amazin' Avenue Audio, Jeffrey, Kate, Chris, Kate Morrison of Baseball Prospectus and the mysterious prospect hate man (he lost a bet) knock back a few and discuss the Mets re-signing Yoenis Cespedes. We prefer that they would have leaked this out two drinks ago, but we can't complain too vehemently because the Mets look like a legitimate mid-market team and have had a pretty good offseason? We are confused as the rest of you.
Four friends enter the drug trade in Boston in the late 1970s: Tristan (Allen Payne), Money (Aaron D. Spears), E-Bone and Simon. With the consent of a South End crime boss, Benny (Clarence Williams III), they quickly rise in the drug game, while the leader of the group, Tristan, keeps his double life a secret from his clueless parents. However, as the 1970s pass to the 2000s, a police investigation threatens to ignite a violent feud among the tight-knit friends.
Allen Payne: Tristan
Angelle Brooks: Martine
Michael Taliferro: Simon
William L. Johnson: E. Bone
Aaron D. Spears: Money
Andrew Divoff: Det. Tyler
Richard Lawson: Uncle Rob
Marlon Young: Twinkie
Dee Freeman: Violet
Angelle Brooks: Martin
William Forsythe: Det. Torrance
It is that time of the year again. The time when we spend two hours arguing over the minutia of the Mets player development system. Are you excited yet? You should be. In Episode 167, Jeffrey, Greg, Lukas, and Steve argue about the Mets minor league system. We start off with a system overview before diving into breakout candidates, who we are higher and lower on than the others, postulate some sleepers, and list our guys. There is plenty of trolling, some spilled pizza, and a lot of John Mora talk for some reason. Then we answer your e-mails on future Mets hall of famers, future Mets minor league managers, and the 1976 NL Cy Young race. And you wonder why it went two hours?
