    Hit the Road, Rojas

    Hit the Road, Rojas

    Welcome to Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), the new/old favorite from Amazin’ Avenue editors Chris McShane and Brian Salvatore.
    With the end of the 2021 season just passed, Chris and Brian look at the possible outcomes of the Mets’ failure to make the playoffs. The dismissal of Luis Rojas, which was absolutely expected, happened on Monday, and so the off-season strategy for populating both the front office and the coaching staff is discussed, as well as a playoff preview.
    Chris’s Music Pick:
    Kevin Morby - Sundowner
    Brian’s Music Pick:
    Ween - Live in Chicago

    Mets report card

    Mets report card

    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.

    D.J. Dozier

    D.J. Dozier

    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.
    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). Tune in next week for another tale from the Mets’ past.

    Next, the team goes big for the last Oh Yeah, That Guy! of the year and reminiscences about the teenage hitting machine himself, Fernando Martinez.
    Wrapping things up, the Wilponery of the Week.

Secret Mets fan ,

A Pod of Their Own

I recently discovered A Pod of Their Own and it’s exceptional! A great change of pace from the normal woeful Mets media.

Misterjoshua77 ,

APOTO Used to be great

I don’t know what happened. It’s devolved into yelling and looking for things just to yell about. Facts are frequently forgotten or glossed over to get to the yelling. The Mets are a terrible organization, everyone knows that. But 75 minutes a week of feeling terrible because you root for them isn’t productive for anyone.

It’s just gotten so negative. As a father of two toddler girls, I loved the different perspective and learned a lot about how others think and feel, things I had never thought of in certain ways. But that message has become lost to the point where it’s almost offensive.

The tipping point was when they laughed through talking about Zack Scott’s arrest. Scott is an alcoholic. There was no empathy for the man. For a podcast that preaches open minded thinking and understanding. There was none. Brian and Chris gave a nice little into about Zack Scott and alcoholism before they addressed the arrest. APOTO laughed at him. That’s where the pod has devolved to.

APOTO and vocal fry

The virtue signaling is at an all time high. The last thing I heard was these women assert that the only reason Baez and Lindor caught more heat for the thumbs down controversy was because of their race. They spend a lot of time thinking about people’s skin color.
