Mets Add to Bullpen, Potential Francisco Álvarez Extension, and our Top 10 Mets Prospects | 261
Big week everyone. The Mets added Jake Diekman and Shintaro Fujinami to their bullpen. I don't think any podcasters on earth are more excited about these two then us and we tell you everything you need to know about the Mets new relievers. Afterwards, we talk about whether or not an extension for Francisco Álvarez is realistic and what it would look like before lots of prospect talk. Each of our Top 10s for the Mets system and some shots at Keith Law's Top 100 that came out last week. Drew Gilbert at 100 GTFO Keith.
Mets Re-Sign Ottavino, Justin Turner is a Blue Jay, and Why This Offseason Sucks | 260
Packed episode today everyone. Adam Ottavino is back and we tell you what we think. Justin Turner went to the Blue Jays and we're breathing a sigh of relief. Then we break down the new MLB Pipeline Top 100 Prospects and where some Mets rank. Briefly, James talks about The Bat X and ATC projection systems that have come out and what they can tell us about the Mets season. Afterwards, a long discussion about why this offseason has sucked so far and end with a hilarious survey of Mets fans Tim Britton did over at the Athletic. Good fun.

Love it all, but especially esti-met
I've been listening from the beginning, and you guys know how to put out entertaining content even when I've given up on the team itself. I love the Estimet, particularly the ones where you opened the competition to followers on social media, but I have a suggestion for the 2024 season: rather than Jon coming up with all of the questions and only Marc and James answering, it might be more fun to have a three way competition. Maybe have a rotation in each episode, so that everyone gets an equal shot of picking the questions and there's no advantage, and all three make predictions (still whoever is closest gets the points).
I love this podcast it’s my go to podcast and I like giraffe neck Marc on YouTube as well. #LGM!
