 A Pod of Their Own, Episode 108: This is not a true crime podcast | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3768

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’ new general manager Billy Eppler and the work he has cut out for him this offseason, especially now that Noah Syndergaard has signed with the Angels. We talk about the Mets’ strategy of not pursuing any free agents with a QO attached and also discuss all the latest Mets-adjacent rumors—Steven Matz, Javy Báez, Seiya Suzuki, and more. Next, we briefly cover the lengthy profile written about Dave Portnoy in New York Magazine and Trevor Bauer’s controversial tweet and encourage you to engage with neither.  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. It really helps! And you can find us on the Stitcher app, Spotify, or listen wherever you get podcasts.

 From Complex To Queens, Episode 143: Winter is Coming | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3626

Welcome to From Complex to Queens, the Amazin’ Avenue podcast focusing on the Mets’ minor league system. In honor of Lukas and Thomas being a pair of sickos, the team picks internet memes in Promote, Extend, Trade. Next, with the Arizona Fall League concluded, the team reviews how the Mets players who participated did. Following that, they take a look at the 40-man roster and moves that were made in preparation for the upcoming Rule 5 Draft. Did the Mets unnnecessarily add anybody to the 40-man roster? Did the Mets leave any glaring omissions and fail to add anybody to the 40-man roster that should’ve been? Finally, the Wilponery of the Week. Got questions? Comments? Concerns?

 From Complex To Queens, Episode 142: 2021 St. Lucie Mets review | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2669

Welcome to From Complex to Queens, the Amazin’ Avenue podcast focusing on the Mets’ minor league system. With the fifth week of Arizona Fall League action done and in the books, Steve reviews how the Mets’ contingent did. After, the team discusses the 2021 St. Lucie Mets season. The St. Lucie Mets ended the season with a 60-5 record, the only non-complex, full-season team to post a record above .500 in 2021. Despite ending the season atop the standings in the Low-A Southeast East, narrowly edging out the Jupiter Hammerheads, who had more wins but an inferior win-loss record, the St. Lucie Mets missed the playoffs due to coronavirus-inspired postseason rule changes that hopefully will be temporary and not continue into 2022 and beyond.

 A Pod of Their Own, Episode 107: Sandy, can’t you see I’m in misery? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4043

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 debacle that is the Mets’ front office search and how it is becoming increasingly clear that it is not “the pressures of New York” that are deterring candidates, but rather the New York Mets. We also talk about Zack Scott’s dismissal and the latest that has come out about the circumstances surrounding his firing. We also pay tribute to the late Pedro Feliciano in the aftermath of his sudden passing. Next, we talk about a report from Business Insider that details sexual misconduct by Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy and discuss the toxic culture built by Barstool that continues to uphold men like Portnoy and Trevor Bauer. We also discuss MLB’s requirement that teams cover housing for minor leaguers starting in 2022—a victory for minor league players and their advocates, but something that should be the beginning of change, and not the end. 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 141: 2021 Brooklyn Cyclones review | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2335

Welcome to From Complex to Queens, the Amazin’ Avenue podcast focusing on the Mets’ minor league system. With the fourth week of Arizona Fall League action done and in the books, Steve reviews how the Mets’ contingent did. After, the team discusses the 2021 Brooklyn Cyclones season. The Cyclones ended the season with a 48-70 record, dead last in the High-A Northeast East, 22.0 games behind the first place Hudson Valley Renegades. While the team itself might not have racked up the wins, several individual players lived up to expectations and several more outperformed how we thought they would perform. On the flip side, sadly, some did not exactly live up to expectations. Still, good or bad, who can’t appreciate Brooklyn baseball? Got questions? Comments? Concerns?

 Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), Episode 81: Maybe use LinkedIn? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4396

Welcome to Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), the new/old favorite from Amazin’ Avenue editors Chris McShane and Brian Salvatore. With Chris taking a well deserved vacation, Brian recruited former Amazin’ Avenue writer Jack McLoone to join him in discussing the Mets’ continued struggles to fill a front office. After a brief diversion into the (now failed) mayoral run of Bobby Valentine, they look to the Mets 2022 roster and offer some suggestions/theories as for how to proceed.

 UnforMETable, Episode 73: Joe Sambito | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2187

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin’ Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. The Brooklyn-born Joe Sambito had a dominant stretch as a reliever for the Houston Astros in the late 70s and early 80s. While he had great personal success—making an appearance in the All-Star Game in 1979—his team couldn’t quite get over the hump in the playoffs, suffering heartbreaking playoff defeats in 1980 and 1981. Sambito’s career was derailed in 1982 by Tommy John surgery. He wouldn’t make it back to the majors until 1984, and could never quite regain his previous form. He hoped to get back to form with his hometown team, but struggled mightily for the 1985 Mets. As fate would have it, he would latch on with Boston in 1986, where he would assume a role in the bullpen for a team that would finally see some playoff success—only to fall short in the World Series against the Mets. If you’ve got an idea for a player to be featured on UnforMETable, let us know in the comments. Make sure to follow Rob on Twitter (@WolffRR), and you can now follow the show, too (@unformetable).

 From Complex To Queens, Episode 140: 2021 Binghamton Rumble Ponies review | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2899

Welcome to From Complex to Queens, the Amazin’ Avenue podcast focusing on the Mets’ minor league system. With the third week of Arizona Fall League action done and in the books, Steve reviews how the Mets’ contingent did. After, the team discusses the 2021 Binghamton Rumble Ponies season. The Ponies ended the season with a 47-60 record, third place in the Double-A Northeast Northeast, 19.0 games behind the first place Somerset Patriots. While the team itself might not have racked up the wins (thought had it not been for a COVID-19 outbreak, they might have won a few more and might have even made at run at .500 for the season), several individual players on the team lived up to expectations and several more outperformed how we thought they would perform.

 A Pod of Their Own, Episode 106: A conversation with Devin Gordon | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 6013

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 have Devin Gordon—author of a new book about the Mets and a recent (fantastic) ESPN piece about the 2021 season—on the show to talk about what went wrong with the 2021 Mets, where the Mets go from here with their front office, and his writing process and capturing the unique psychology of Mets fandom.  We wrap up the show this week 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.

Welcome to From Complex to Queens, the Amazin’ Avenue podcast focusing on the Mets’ minor league system. With the second week of Arizona Fall League action done and in the books, Steve reviews how the Mets’ contingent did. Following that, the team discusses the 2021 Syracuse Mets, who ended the season with a 47-69 record, tied for worst in the Triple-A East Northeast along with the Rochester Red Wings, and one of the worst records in the entire all of Triple-A baseball (East and West) period. Suffice to say, it was not the type of season that we expected going into the beginning of the year. Got questions? Comments? Concerns?

 Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), Episode 81: Please don’t order the Alderson Sandwich | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3127

Welcome to Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), the new/old favorite from Amazin’ Avenue editors Chris McShane and Brian Salvatore. The Mets cannot seem to land the front office personnel that they want, and so they find themselves in the same place they’ve been for three of the last four postseasons: without the proper resources to put together an on-field team. Also discussed are the potential qualifying offers the Mets may consider and how much of a full tear down this team needs.

 UnforMETable, Episode 72: Timo Perez | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1770

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin’ Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. Timo Perez began his professional baseball career over in Japan before the Mets scouted him and took a flyer on him prior to the 2000 season. A strong minor league campaign earned him a September call up, and his speed and versatility helped him find a place on the Mets’ postseason roster. When regular right fielder Derek Bell went down with an ankle sprain in the first game of the playoffs, manager Bobby Valentine somewhat surprisingly turned to Perez to take over for him. Perez immediately provided the desired spark and seemed destined to put himself in the lore of unlikely baseball postseason heroes, until an unfortunate base running mistake cost the Mets a run in a World Series Game 1 they would lose in extra innings.

 From Complex To Queens, Episode 138: All-Organization Teams | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3827

Welcome to From Complex to Queens, the Amazin’ Avenue podcast focusing on the Mets’ minor league system. First up, Lukas, Ken, and Thomas tackle a Promote, Extend, Trade. Lukas is in charge this week, so you just know he has to make it about Mass Effect. Next, the team goes over the Mets’ performances in the AFL. Are they meaningless? Probably! Thankfully our discussion got interrupted by some great breaking news, as MLB announced that they will provide minor leaguers with housing starting next season. We’ll discuss that in more detail on next week’s pod. After that, we go over our all-organization teams. Suffice it to say, filling out a full second team from this system is a bleak proposition.
