 A Pod of Their Own, Episode 115: At least Guy Fieri isn’t bad for the environment | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4319

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 only good baseball news that has happened of late: the two historic hires made by the Mets.  But next, we talk about the thing everyone else is talking about: the second time the start of the MLB season has been delayed in the course of three years. This time, it’s because there is not a new collective bargaining agreement. Like most of you, we are angry. And we are sad. Because we love baseball, even if Rob Manfred does not. Finally, we wrap things up with a desperately needed 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 75: Rick Cerone | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1785

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin’ Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. A New Jersey native who starred at Seton Hall, Rick Cerone seemed perfectly suited to play baseball in New York. It just took him a little while to get there.  Drafted in the first round by Cleveland, Cerone was traded to the expansion Toronto Blue Jays, where he caught the first game in franchise history and established himself.  Cerone was traded home to the Yankees in 1980 following Thurman Munson’s tragic death. He had a career year in 1980 before clashing with George Steinbrenner and getting exiled—and brought back again.  After his third departure from the Yankees, the 37 year old was anxious to stay close to home and play for a contender. The 1991 Mets would seem to fill both bills. But while Cerone would have a solid season in orange and blue, the 1991 Mets decidedly would not.   As always, you can listen or subscribe to this and 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 157: School spirit! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3396

Steve, Ken, and Thomas discuss who the next inductee should be in Promote, Extend, Trade. After that, they give updates on their Way-Too-Early Draft Special players of interest. Following that, they spend a little more time discussing college baseball.
