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 handing out grades to each Mets player, as well as the front office and Luis Rojas. We also discuss Luis Rojas’ firing and the latest front office rumors. Next, we talk about a piece from Michael Rosenberg of Sports Illustrated bringing in BDSM experts to discuss the Trevor Bauer situation.  We also talk about two prominent pieces in ESPN and The Athletic about the mental health crisis in the minor leagues and the poor conditions players face—an issue that is thankfully receiving more national attention as we head into CBA negotiations in the offseason. We would like to thank each of our Dollars for Dingers pledgers, who helped us raise over $12,000 for the National Domestic Violence Hotline this year. 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.

 UnforMETable, Episode 71: D.J. Dozier | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1603

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin’ Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. D.J. Dozier was a three sport star in high school, excelling in baseball as well as football and basketball. While he was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the 18th round out of high school, his future seemed to lie in football, as Dozier accepted a scholarship to—and starred at running back for—Penn State. Dozier won a National Championship in college and was a first round draft pick in the NFL for the Minnesota Vikings, But he never quite abandoned his interest in baseball. He would sign a free agent contract with the Mets and work his way up through the minors in 1990-91—while continuing his football career over the winter. In 1992, Dozier would make it to the majors with the Mets for 47 at bats, making him one of the rare athletes to play in two professional sport leagues.

 UnforMETable, Episode 70: Kenny Greer | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1528

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin’ Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. Kenny Greer is a member of a somewhat exclusive club—one of the few players involved in a rare trade between the Mets and Yankees. The career minor leaguer toiled for six years in the Yankees organization before coming to the Mets for Frank Tanana in an also rare September trade in 1993. Thanks to a confluence of expanded September rosters and an incredibly long 17 inning game, Greer got an opportunity to make his MLB debut—and throw one of his 13 career MLB innings—as a New York Met, hurling a perfect 17th inning and recording a win—his only career victory, and one of only 59 in a painful 1993 season for the Mets.

 From Complex To Queens, Episode 134: Put 2021 in the books (kinda) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1065

Welcome to From Complex to Queens, the Amazin’ Avenue podcast focusing on the Mets’ minor league system. We knew this moment would come eventually. It always does. The 2021 minor league season has come to a conclusion, for the most part. The Syracuse Mets season will continue, but 2021 is over for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, Brooklyn Cyclones, St. Lucie Mets, and FCL Mets.

 UnforMETable, Episode 69: Kevin Collins | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1766

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin’ Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. The Mets signed Kevin Collins as a 17 year old in 1964. The infielder was rushed to the majors due to combination of baseball’s pre-draft era waiver rules and the young team’s many needs, and injuries and a lack of proper development time would soon stunt any opportunity for Collins to flourish. Passed on the organizational depth chart by other youngsters such as Bud Harrelson, Collins transitioned to a role as a utility infielder. After missing out on an opportunity to claim a platoon role at third base in early 1969, the still young infielder would soon miss out on experiencing the Miracle Mets’ run, as he became a key component in the trade that brought eventual 1969 World Series MVP Donn Clendenon to New York.

 UnforMETable, Episode 68: Mike Scott | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1763

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin’ Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. The Mets drafted Mike Scott in the second round of the 1976 draft, hoping the hard-throwing right-hander would develop into a future pitching star. Unfortunately, Scott never developed a secondary pitch and his Mets career would fizzle out. After some mixed success in his first couple of years in Houston, Scott would learn how to throw the split-fingered fastball from Roger Craig. With this new pitch—or perhaps some illegal doctoring of the ball—Scott would find sudden and massive success. And would make himself the biggest potential obstacle in his former team’s dramatic and treacherous path to the 1986 World Championship.

 Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), Episode 78: Bad Play, Bad Tweets | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2067

Welcome to Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), the new/old favorite from Amazin’ Avenue editors Chris McShane and Brian Salvatore. The Mets took two of three games from the Yankees over the weekend, giving one last injection of hope into this maddening season. But then the Cardinals came to town, and the Mets’ season looks more lost than ever. Plus, Steve Cohen continues to tweet, and no one seems particularly happy about that.
