 Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), Episode 15: The Wheelers on the trade rumors go round and round | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3358

Welcome to Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), the new/old favorite, which this week is co-hosted by Chris McShane and Linda Surovich as we wrap up the week of mixing up the hosts on our podcasts for some midseason fun. The show opens with discussion of the red-hot Mets’ four-game winning streak, which leaves them seven games under .500—and Mets fans maybe dreaming on something more, even though we fully realize it’s probably not going to happen. From there, we talk about the Zack Wheeler situation, the Mets’ hot hitters, and more before the break. Coming out of the break, we run down the list of TRAID candidates, which includes Wheeler, Todd Frazier, Jason Vargas, and maybe Dominic Smith, Wilson Ramos, or Noah Syndergaard. And we wrap up by answering the questions we got for the show from folks on Twitter.

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. We are back in your feeds after our brief hiatus last week. It’s a shake-up week at Amazin’ Avenue Audio and we welcome Lukas Vlahos and Ken Lavin as guest hosts while lending Allison out to From Complex to Queens and Linda to Amazin’ Avenue The Show. This week, Maggie, Ken, and Lukas bemoan the Mets’ botched communications around Amed Rosario’s benching, as well as the classic Mets melange of bad process and bad luck that has landed Zack Wheeler on the injured list at the worst possible moment. Then, we take a broad look at the state of labor issues in the minor leagues. The current system leaves the youngest and most vulnerable professional players open to sub-minimum wage, poor working conditions, and potentially dangerous experimentation. What will it take to get MLB to invest in their human resources? And finally, we wrap things up as usual with our walk-off wins - one thing that made each of us happy this week!

 UnforMETable, Episode 16: Richard Hidalgo | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1196

Welcome to UnforMETable, a new show from Amazin’ Avenue that looks back on less heralded, more obscure, but quintessential Mets players from the past. This week, guest host Brian Salvatore traces the career of former Met Richard Hidalgo. Hildalgo came up with the Astros, had an amazing year in 2000, and a very good year in 2003 before coming over to the Mets in a trade in June of 2004. He hit 21 home runs in the summer of 2004, only to depart the team in the off-season. Some of the things discussed in this episode: his connection to Bobby Abreau, his son signing with the Marlins, his abandoned ‘field of dreams,’ and the time the dude was shot during a carjacking, but played profession baseball just a few months later.

 UnforMETable, Episode 15: Joel Youngblood | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1607

Welcome to UnforMETable, a new show from Amazin’ Avenue that looks back on less heralded, more obscure, but quintessential Mets players from the past With the All-Star Break upon us, Rob Wolff travels back to take a look at the Mets tenure—and unlikely All-Star selection—of outfielder/super-utility player Joel Youngblood. Youngblood arrived in New York on an infamous day in Mets’ history—June 15, 1977—in a smaller trade on the day the Midnight Massacre saw Tom Seaver depart Flushing. Pegged as a utility player, Youngblood became a solid contributor for the Mets—primarily as an outfielder—as he struggled to shed his image as a supersub. Youngblood was the Mets’ lone All-Star representative in 1981 before making baseball history on August 4, 1982 thanks to the unique timing of his trade from the Mets to the Montreal Expos.

A veteran of many years in the Korean and Japanese leagues, the 35 year-old was brought to New York to serve as a LOOGY, and had never recorded an at-bat in his professional career. But his most memorable moment as a Met would come in the Subway Series in an unbelievable at-bat against future Hall of Famer Randy Johnson—and his daring baserunning thereafter.

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 try to wrap our minds around the cavalcade of Mets drama, from the Sunday’s locker room throwdown to leaks about Brodie’s backseat managing to bullpen meltdowns. For more reading on this circus, check out former Mets beat writer Marc Carig’s takedown of team leadership and the Post’s brutal take on Callaway’s standing as manager. Next, we look at a related topic: MLB discipline. Both umpires and the league have standards that seem variable and unpredictable and it’s a real problem. Finally, we wrap things up as we always do with Walk-off Wins, where each of us talks about what’s making us happy this week, baseball-related or otherwise. And a quick update to an earlier show: the brilliant and talented Dr. Meredith Wills has published a follow-up to her work last year on the difference in the baseballs resulting in the home run surge.

Welcome to UnforMETable, a new show from Amazin’ Avenue that looks back on less heralded, more obscure, but quintessential Mets players from the past As the Mets prepare to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Miracle Mets’ World Championship, this week, Rob Wolff travels back to take a look at Amos Otis’s brief tenure with the franchise. Considered an untouchable prospect prior to that season, Otis struggled to find a role or get in the good graces of manager Gil Hodges. Fresh off of their miraculous championship run, Otis was deemed quite touchable as the Mets tried to plug their seemingly ever-present third base hole by sending the prospect. to the Kansas City Royals in exchange for Joe Foy, in what would come to be regarded as one of the worst trades in franchise history.    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.
