The Amazin' Avenue Audio Podcast: Episode 20

Hooo boy, settle in young Mets fans, pour yourself a refreshing beverage, take your shoes off, and carve out some time to listen to Rob's three-point plan to salvage the 2013 Mets season. Then hear Jeffrey argue that maybe the Mets shouldn't try too hard to play .500 ball the rest of the way. After that, FanGraphs' Carson Cistulli joins the podcast to talk Harvey GIFs, Wilmer Flores, and Werner Herzog. Finally, we get lost down a baseball-reference rabbit hole while answering your e-mails. And after all that, somehow it will be two hours and fifteen minutes later, and you will be well into your fourth drink. Love the Mets #Love the Mets.

Run Time: 2:16:15
