 Episode 137: Matt Harvey Omnibus | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 7167

In the "Well, guess we are re-recording on Saturday" edition, Jeffrey and Steve discuss the sound and fury around Matt Harvey's innings limit, and then a probably anti-climactic bit about the Brooklyn Cyclones, because Jeffrey saw them this week. Next, Chris talks to Marc Carig of Newsday about the Mets hot August and what the future may hold for the 2015 Mets. Nothing about Matt Harvey though, because that was recorded on Thursday. Then, Joe Sheehan of Sports Illustrated is here to discuss if the Mets are actually good, if it matters, and why the Nats haven't been good. There is some more Matt Harvey talk here too. Finally we wrap up with your e-mails, and a brief IFK Goteborg update. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 136: So you had some questions for us | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5909

In the "We will probably not do an e-mail show ever again" edition, Jeffrey and Steve answer seventeen of your e-mails. There's a bullpen tryptich, a duo of Matt Harvey, and we officially end our hiatus from discussing Daniel Murphy's contract status. Oh, there's also a trilogy of Wilmer Flores questions, a prospect pronunciation guide, an anecdote about Jeffrey's college pro wrestling days, and of course, a query about an obsccure short-season player. The Mets also made a trade, so I guess we have to talk about that too. Sigh.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 135: The Mets are really socking the ball | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3044

In the "Mostly hypothetical discussion" edition, Jeffrey and Chris discuss what Mets they would like to have a late night snack with, try to figure out what is going on with the Mets offense (and for the first time in the podcast's history, the incredulity is positive!), revel in the Summer of Flores, consider the near-term futures of Logan Verrett and Noah Syndergaard, and question the Nationals current PR strategy. Normally we would answer your e-mails next, but there are too many, and Jeffrey has no internet set up in his new apartment. So instead we just wrap things up with an IFK Goteborg update. (We will be back this weekend for all of your e-mails, which are now stretching into the double digits). Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 134: It's always the bullpen | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3925

In the "The return of the LOLpen" edition, Jeffrey and Greg repatriate to Panic City as we discuss the Mets recent bullpen issues, upcoming rotation "issues," and a host of other topics helpfully sent in by our listeners and not in any way curated by us. You will be happy to know that there is zero wrestling talk apparently, and that IFK Goteborg is still top of the Allsvenskenliga, since no one every complains about the Swedish soccer talk.

 Episode 133: Matz and the Nats | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 6364

In the "Let's all agree to not make the Rallykeet happen" edition, Jeffrey and Steve planned a nice, short, podcast. Then we ended up perusing Atlantic League statistical leaders. Before that though, we check in with Steven Matz and David Wright's rehab and marvel at Jeurys Familia's new change-up. Next, Mike Ferrin, host of MLB Power Alley on SiriusXM comes on the show to discuss the Nationals 2015 woes and if they can pull it together down the stretch. Then, we head to your e-mails which is just an endless series of digressions mixed in with some very big talk about Luis Carpio. Finally, Jeffrey is happy about one soccer team, concerned about another, and coming on your podcast probably. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 132: Meaningful games in August | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5842

In the "Yoenis Cespedes is gritty" edition, Jeffrey and Greg are in good moods about the Mets. That makes two straight weeks for Jeffrey and is a podcast record. We wonder if it is playoffs or bust now, and who might help (Yoenis Cespedes) or hurt (the bullpen) those aspirations. Next we do a quick minor league news round-up, mostly so we can talk about glow-in-the-dark hats. Then it is onto your e-mails. It's a light week, only eight e-mails, and only two with pro wrestling content. Finally it's a whole bunch of soccer updates, a plug for our next live show, and a possible farewell to an Amazin' Avenue Audio icon. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 131: The Agony and the Ecstacy | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5948

In the "Wilmer Flores punches his ticket to Cooperstown" edition, Jeffrey and Steve cover one of the wildest weeks in recent Mets history. There are trades, almost trades, crying over the Mets from fans and players, walkoffs, blown saves, torrential rain, pure misery, and Dionysian revelry. You know, the usual. We also answer eleven of your e-mails.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 130: #PROMOAT and #TRAID | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2437

In the "Probably should have uploaded this Sunday" edition, Bryan and Jeffrey sit down for a brief discussion of recent Mets moves. The Mets keep making moves though, so if you want hot Tyler Clippard takes, you will have to wait until later this week (or just read Keith Law). We do discuss the Michael Conforto promotion and the acquisition of Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson. Next we try to figure out what Terry Collins will do with this new lineup flexibility, and answer an e-mail that Jeffrey forgot to answer in Episode 129. Finally we wrap things up with an IFK Goteborg update, and Jefrey tries to discern the reasons for the Blavitt's struggles after the long international break. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 129: #PROMOAT or #TRAID | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4465

In the "Da Mets ah a disgrace. Back aftah dis" edition, Jeffrey and Steve convene a town council meeting for the residents of Panic City. First there is the old business, as we discuss the state and fate of Bobby Parnell, and try valiantly once again to fix the Mets offense. Next is new business, as we tackle the Amazin' Avenue Midseason Prospect List, which we both already hate. Finally, it is correspondence from the citizens, as we answer your e-mails on sandwiches, wrestling themes, twitter bots, and Lucas Duda.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 128: Defending your Lagares | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4422

In the "And his hair was perfect" edition, Greg and Jeffrey are obligated to do the usual midseason review stuff we guess. But first Greg sings the praises of Kevin McReynolds, while Jeffrey sings the praises of fringy Jewish platoon dudes. Then we talk about the Mets first half and Jeffrey takes on Greg and the internet on the subject of Juan Lagares. Then we answer you e-mails about...uh, Juan Lagares, the fringiest of  fringy prospects, and shirseys. But hey, at least it isn't as long as an MTV Alternative music video show this week.

 Episode 127: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 9060

In the "Mets need to get some of those Thai Tuna bucks" edition, we present a, uh, long podcast. Jeffrey and Greg start off by figuring out what we will be talking about on the pod. Next we consider what the Mets should do at the upcoming trade deadline and wonder why #MetsTwitter is so ready to trade Matt Harvey. After that we discuss the Steven Matz injury that Jeffrey just found out about. Then it is time for some All-Star Game talk, because that is a thing that is about to happen, and Jeffrey kind of wanted a Jeurys Familia all-star shirsey. And we can't skip Jeffrey's recent minors road trip, because Greg has some questions. That would be a pretty full show, but oh yeah, there's more. Alex Nelson comes on the show to recap the 2015 Mets draft and of course there are your e-mails. Finally we wrap things up with various soccer updates, both Swedish and second division.

 Episode 126: Paul DePodesta talks international signings, draft, Mets farm | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1828

As you hit the road for the holiday weekend, we have a bonus episode of the podcast for you this week. Jeff is out on the road seeing plenty of Mets minor league action, and on Thursday afternoon, he spoke to Paul DePodesta about the team's international signings and what the Mets' two biggest probably-soon-to-be-official signings in that class this year bring to the table. Then they touch on the draft, including strategy without a first-round pick this year, and how the Mets zoned in on second-round pick Desmond Lindsay. And given the nature of the Mets' offense right now, Jeff and Paul touch upon what it would be like to ask one of the team's current minor league hitter to make the jump to the major league level and make a difference there. And Jeff gets greedy with a question about the Mets' next best pitching prospect now that all of the biggest names have graduated to the big leagues. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 125: The ever-streaking New York Mets | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4973

Jeff is out of town, which means "Podcast Positivity" is back. The Mets have won four games in a row, which is a nice way to rebound from a seven-game losing streak. Greg and I talk about the good times, the Mets' excellent stretch of pitching by young starters, and the nearly-complete lack of offense. We delve into Michael Cuddyer's brutal stretch ever since I purchased a Cuddyer shirsey, Jon Niese's trade value, and plenty more before turning it over to Jeff for an audio update on what he saw in Kingsport—we're calling that the Kingsport Report. And then we return to answer your emails and go off on a few other tangents. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 124: If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5641

in the "Podcast Positivity is over" edition, apathy may be starting to descend on the podcast. Jeffrey and Aaron do their best to soldier through, covering the recent (bad) news. There's more bad news with Marc Carig of Newday. Then we answer your e-mails about Michael Conforto (getting better), the Mets shortstop situation (not getting better), scouting the stat line (okay, now you have Jeffrey's attention), and the Yankees (#blameBeltran). Jeffrey can't even summon much enthusiasm for the IFK Goteborg update (although he does probably butcher Eastern European football team names). Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 123: Podcast Positivity | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5909

In the "Steve Schreiber stole our opening question" edition, Jeffrey and Greg deal with some constructive feedback from the listeners with some constructive feedback for the Mets. More Jacob deGrom and Travis d'Arnaud, less Wilmer Flores at shortstop and bench at-bats for starters. Next we discuss the Dillon Gee DFA and Jeffrey's (last?!) trip to Binghamton. Then it is time for your e-mails on bourbon, the Mets first round pick, the low offensive environement, and (sigh) a potential Daniel Murphy extension. Finally, we wrap things up with Jeffrey grousing about the goings on in South Yorkshire. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
