Welcome back to A Pod of Their Own, a show by the women of Amazin’ Avenue where we talk all things Mets, social justice issues in baseball, and normalize female voices in the sports podcasting space.  This week, we begin by discussing the Mets’ thrilling victory earlier in the day led by Francisco Lindor and how well he has played so far this season. We remain concerned about the bullpen but the offense and starting pitching have been carrying the team. Next, we talk about the new sensory nook the Mets installed in Citi Field in an effort to be more inclusive to fans.  Finally, we wrap things up with Walk-off Wins, where each of us talks about what’s making us happy this week, baseball-related or otherwise.  You can listen or subscribe to all of our wonderful Amazin’ Avenue Audio podcasts through Apple Podcasts, where we encourage you to leave a review if you enjoy the show.

 UnforMETable, Episode 76: Randy Tate | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1607

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin’ Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. Randy Tate was a young left-handed starter in the Mets’ organization with a strong arm but a lack of control. Tate had one large and key supporter in the organization—manager Yogi Berra. Going into the 1975 season, Berra saw the 22 year old Tate as a perfect fit for the rotation behind his incredible top three of Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman, and Jon Matlack. Tate had the type of up-and-down season one might expect from a young hurler, perfectly encapsulated in one game on August 4, 1975, when Tate took a no-hitter into the eighth at Shea, only to lose it—and the game—in quick succession. The game seemed to mark the end of Berra’s reign as manager, as he was fired after the next day’s doubleheader sweep.

 A Pod of Their Own, Episode 119: METSCON 1 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5500

Welcome back to A Pod of Their Own, a show by the women of Amazin’ Avenue where we talk all things Mets, social justice issues in baseball, and normalize female voices in the sports podcasting space.  This week, we begin with the bad news: the stress reaction in Jacob deGrom’s scapula that’s going to cost him about two months of his season. It’s a huge blow to the Mets and we discuss whether the team will be able to weather the storm. Next, we talk about the trade that almost was (Dominic Smith to the Padres for Eric Hosmer, Chris Paddack, and Emilio Pagan) and the trade that actually was (Miguel Castro to the Yankees for Joely Rodríguez). We note what a travesty it is that Miguel Castro had to shave his beard and dreadlocks due to the Yankees’ archaic (and discriminatory) hair policy. We also discuss the more minor, but still potentially concerning injuries in camp (Nimmo’s neck, Scherzer’s hamstring, etc.) and name Our Dudes for the 2022 season. In our baseball segment this week, we discuss improving conditions for minor leaguers and areas that still need improvement. We also talk about Trevor Bauer’s defamation lawsuit against Molly Knight and The Athletic and how it indicates that he is more interested in painting his accuser as a liar than he is in returning to the mound for the Dodgers. Finally, we wrap things up with Walk-off Wins, where each of us talks about what’s making us happy this week, baseball-related or otherwise.  You can listen or subscribe to all of our wonderful Amazin’ Avenue Audio podcasts through Apple Podcasts, where we encourage you to leave a review if you enjoy the show.

 From Complex To Queens, Episode 161: 2022 Predictions | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4265

Welcome to From Complex to Queens, the Amazin’ Avenue podcast focusing on the Mets’ minor league system. In honor of Ponce De Leon and the Fountain of Youth, the team discusses players who had incredible careers on the wrong side of 40 in Promote, Extend, Trade. Next, Steve, Lukas, Ken, and Thomas give updates on their Way-Too-Early Draft Special players of interest. After that, the team reviews their predictions for the 2021 season made last year. Following that, the team gives their predictions for the 2022 minor league season, split into mild, medium, and spicy takes. Steve thinks that Jake Mangum will be a top 10 prospect in the system, the 2022 Brooklyn Cyclones will have the best rotation since the legendary 2012 rotation, and that Matthew Allan will drop out of the top 10 prospect list in 2023. Lukas thinks that Nick Plummer will have 150+ league average or better at-bats in 2022, Dominic Hamel will be an elite RP prospect by the end of the season, and Joel Diaz will be a top-100 prospect in baseball by the end of the season. Ken thinks that the Mets will draft at least 3 top 10 2023 prospects in the 2022 MLB Draft, Francisco Alvarez is a top 5 prospect in baseball heading into the 2023 season, and Brett Baty hits 35 homers across all levels in 2022. Thomas thinks that Brett Baty will hit more fly balls, Eric Orze becomes an important member of the 2022 Mets’ bullpen, and that Francisco Alvarez will be the third catcher on the Mets’ depth chart by 2023.
