    Episode 23 - 2020 Predictions!

    It's taken longer than anybody would've imagined at the start of the year, but the 2020 baseball season is finally upon us! So what's going to happen?

    Andrew is joined by Tracey and David to talk through the Mets' chances of success, if their bullpen has improved, who will be the team's MVP, and which teams will make the World Series.

    But more importantly, David gives us his countdown of the top five MLB uniforms. These are the issues which matter in baseball.

    Episode 22 - UK Mets meet James Wagner (Part Two)

    Episode 22 - UK Mets meet James Wagner (Part Two)

    Tracey, Jo and David are delighted to welcome the New York Times' James Wagner (@ByJamesWagner) to Mets Across The Pod.

    Part two of the hour long conversation begins with imagining how it would be to spend your time on Isolation Island with Terry Collins. Not boring!

    What does James prefer, National League or American League? What chance does he think there is of the team being sold? What are his favourite team uniforms, and is it - as John Oliver suggested - immoral to support the Yankees? (Hint: Yes it is. But never mind what we think, see what James says). 

    James also recounts his trip to the London Series last year, his sister's obsession with Pride and Prejudice, and his own fledgling rugby career! 

    Plenty for you to get your teeth into, in other words. LETS. GO. METS. #LGM #LGFM

    Episode 21 - James Wagner Joins The Show (Part One)

    Tracey, Jo and David are delighted to welcome the New York Times' James Wagner (@ByJamesWagner) to Mets Across The Pod.

    In part one of their hour long conversation, we learn about James' early life and career, and what it's like to have covered both teams in New York. And are they even rivals? James gives his view.

    We also find out who he thinks had the better rookie season out of Aaron Judge and Pete Alonso (no contest, surely?), as well as learning how he deals with players in the lockeroom, and the interesting musical recommendations the players make for each other!

    Finally, and most importantly, who would everyone want to take to Isolation Island?

    We'll be back with part two later in the week. LETS. GO. METS. #LGM #LGFM

    Episode 20 - Talkin' to Tim Ryder

    Episode 20 - Talkin' to Tim Ryder

    It's a very special episode of Mets Across The Pod, as Tracey, Les and David welcome Tim Ryder of Metsmerized and the Simply Amazin' podcast to the show.

    Who is his dream podcast guest? Will there be baseball in 2020 and a realignment of the leagues? Who are his favourite Mets past and present, and which current player might make the best manager? Most importantly, which soccer team does his grandmother support? We get the big answers to the biggest of questions.

    Tim asks us about baseball in the UK, and we find out the best bar near him to watch a game in. It's even English themed, apparently.

    Tim can be found at @TimothyRRyder on Twitter, and at @Metsmerized and @SimplyAmazinPod.

    Episode 19 - Beer, Books, Hugs and Hasselhoff

    For the first time ever, all five of the gang are on the pod! No idea what has caused them all to be at home at the same time, but they've managed it somehow.

    Tracey, Jo, Les, David and Andrew talk about how they're coping without baseball... it turns out it's mostly via alcohol. There's recommendations for beer and Mets books, plus a shout out for the excellent @CosellPA . And should the Metropolitans go back to wearing black jerseys? All this and all the usual nonsense is covered.

    Episode 18 - Jed The Unicorn

    Tracey, Jo and Andrew are back to discuss all things New York Mets. Do Spring Training results matter? What's up with Jed Lowrie? What about Yoenis Cespedes' love/hate relationship with the media? Should Pete Alonso be the Mets' next captain? 

    Andrew also tells the tale of his and David's trip to Home Run House in Stratford, and find out what songs the UK Mets Online team would choose to sum up their Mets fandom! You can listen to their choices in full here:

They love David Wright and that’s enough for me

St3C ,

I’m impressed

These guys know their stuff! I love hearing people with these accents talking about the Mets. It’s other worldly.
