    Ep. 96 - Another Elbow Down to Tommy John

    in Sports

    The Rising Apple Report returns with it's 96th episode! Sam Maxwell hosts, with Staff Writers Rich Sparago and Mike Lecolant joining him on a fantastic spring afternoon post-snow to talk all things Mets!

    Well, another pitcher down to Tommy John Surgery after Zack Wheeler's elbow MRI revealed a full UCL tear. We'll discuss the situation, what it means for his career and what it means for the Mets rotation.

    The lefties seem to be doing better lately, but nothing overwhelming, causing the Mets to possibly explore the end-of-spring waiver wire for southpaw bullpen help. We'll discuss some of those candidates and talk about our own preferences.

    And of course, with no Mets number to discuss, we will talk about the 1996 Metsian season.

    So, join us at 2pm ET for the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report!

    Episode 108: This is a sad podcast

    in Baseball

    In the "YARD GOATS!" edition, Jeffrey and Chris actually recorded before the announcement of YARD GOATS, so this podcast is mostly full of sad things (unless you are a Swedish soccer fan). We touch on Zack Wheeler's torn UCL, discuss our most gut-punching moments as a Mets fan, and consider Wilmer Flores, Mets Opening Day shortstop (again). There are some happy things, we suppose. David Wright hit a big dong, Lucas Duda will probably be good again, and Ronny is an Amazin' Avenue reader apparently (and has some damn stylish glasses). Oh, and definitely stick around for a discussion of Aderlin Rodriguez batting practice laser shows.

    Ep. 95 - Where's a Southpaw When You Need One?!

    in Sports

    The Rising Apple Report rolls in on a weekend to discuss all things New York Mets! Sam Maxwell hosts, with Site Editor Danny Abriano joining him for the 95th Episode!

    The lefty situation, or lack thereof, has dominated the chatter the last few days, with Josh Edgin having to decide between rehab and Tommy John Surgery and the rest of the options in camp now performing up to par. Many Mets fans believe this could have been avoided, though Sandy claims there was not "right fit" out there. We'll discuss whether or not he could have done more to shore this issue up.

    Zack Wheeler has been scratched from his next start with elbow tendonitis. We'll talk about how concerned we should be regarding the right-handed pitcher, whose success is such a key to this next Mets era.

    Players have been singing the praises of new hitting coach Kevin Long, especially his old Yankee partner Curtis Granderson. We'll discuss his impact so far, and whether we can really tell how positive of an impact he has had this early in the year.

    So, join us for the newest edition of the Rising Apple Report!
