    Next, we spend the bulk of the show talking about David Wright’s memoir The Captain, written by Anthony DiComo of MLB.com in conjunction with Wright.

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.

xSneakerhead ,

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.
