 Episode 107: Practice Games, Phillies, Pizza | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 6218

In the "Jeffrey will tell the story of how he named his dog again" edition, we are already tired of spring training, so Jeffrey and Steve meander about discussing dog names, Yusmeiro Petit bobbleheads, and teams full of Lucas Dudas, rather than discussing all the stuff Terry Collins is saying. We do find time to discuss what Matt Harvey and Noah Syndergaard have been doing though, and it's very good. Then we preview the 2015 Mets outfield, tackling, well, things that Terry Collins is saying. Like Juan Lagares will bat leadoff, and Curtis Granderson will stay in right field. Next, Liz Roscher of The Good Phight joins the show to discuss the sad state of the 2015 Phillies, and why FanGraphs writers all hate Cole Hamels. Finally, Brian Renzi makes his podcast debut and helps Jeffrey answer your e-mails while he makes a pizza. We wrap things up with your weekly IFK Goteborg update and the announcement of our next live show. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 105: Spring training preview | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5297

In the “Jeffrey promises not to tell the Shingo Takatsu story again” edition, Jeffrey and Chris talk about all the things that aren’t really happening even though there are in fact baseball players in Port St. Lucie doing baseball things. We discuss Dillon Gee’s uncertain future, Jenrry Mejia’s unbelievable hair, and Eric Campbell’s unassailable roster spot. And of course there is shortstop talk as well. We also kick off our positional previews with the Mets bullpen (#blameMcShane). Jeffrey isn’t sold on Bobby Parnell, closer of the (near) future, and neither of us are sure he 2015 Mets pen will be good (though we suppose this is an improvement from years past when we were pretty sure they weren’t). We wrap things up with your e-mails, which include Chris’s pro wrestling history and a serious consideration of Robinson Cancel, and the podcast adopts a soccer team (no, it’s not who you think).  Learn more about your ad choices.

 Episode 104: Prospect list in podcast form | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 7994

In the "Jeffrey has had a weird twenty-four hours" edition, Jeffrey, Greg, and Steve talk about the 2015 Amazin' Avenue Prospect List, which you can conveniently check out at Amazin' Avenue proper. On the podcast version, we take an overview of the Mets system and revisit the 2011 Baseball America Mets prospect list for some reason (probably it's the first one we thought to google). Next, we dive a bit deeper into Noah Syndergaard, our #1 prospect, since we weirdly haven't talked about him that much on the show. Then, we get into the kvetching about who had guys ranked too high or low and wrap up the prospect portion with a list of "our guys." Finally it's your e-mails of course, and Jeffrey wraps up the show with a now-outdated, but still shameless plug for his MLB Now appearance and a less-outdated, but no less shameless plug for his wife's concert series.

 Episode 103: James Shields is not a Met | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 7916

In the "Michael Cuddyer: Mindfreak" edition, Jeffrey and Greg discuss the films of Werner Herzog, Jeffrey and David Roth discuss the films of Ron Howard, and then Jeffrey and Greg discuss the merits of the TV show, "Sliders." This has been the worst offseason ever, you guys. There is also kvetching about James Shields, an in-depth analysis of the playoff odds of our two favorite second-division sports teams, and a lot of discussion about the 2003 Mets.

 Episode 102: Listener-generated content | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4188

In the "non-live snow day edition," Jeffrey and Greg indulge in a little listener-generated content. Yes, that's just a fancy way of saying it is an e-mail show. We talk about where we would play in a hypothetical Amazin' Avenue charity baseball game, debate the merits of the "Warthen slider," and issue a plea for more neutral minor league parks. Then, Steve Sypa joins the show to talk about this weekend's Amazin' Aveunue Regional Gathering Here (AARGH) in Manhattan, but mostly we just end up talking about the WWE's recent Royal Rumble. Consider yourself forewarned. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 101: Snow day live! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3290

In the "I hereby declare this day to be Snow Day, the funnest day in the history of the podcast" edition. Jeffrey had an idea to try out Blog Talk's live studio feature while he is snowed in his apartment. So we'll talk Mets baseball and the usual other stuff assuming he can figure out how this works.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 100: Max Scherzer is not a Met | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3922

In the "Armando Bleepin' Benitez" edition, since we've spent the last 99 of these talking about the Mets, we decide to mix things up and talk about the Nationals. Also, the Mets didn't do anything last week. The Nationals did sign Max Scherzer, so Greg and Jeffrey discuss if it's a good deal for the Nats, and what it might mean for the 2015 (and beyond) Mets. We also have your e-mails on Matz vs. Syndergaard, Beane vs. Alderson, why the Wilpons are still here, and we'll try to talk you off the ledge so you are around for the next 100 (or 104?) of these. Cheers! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

 Episode 99: This has been...Shortstop Avenue Audio | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 7010

In the "Grand Slam Single" edition, imagine that, we're talking about a potential shortstop AND a trade the Alderson front office hasn't made. Yes, the Mets were (are) rumored to be interested in Ian Desmond, so Jeffrey and Greg bemoan having to still talk about shortstops, and then proceed to break down the pros and cons of a potential Desmond deal. That still leaves plenty of time to go over the 2015 Mets ZiPS projections and answer potentially incriminating e-mails. All in a week's work on Amazin' Avenue Audio.
