The Amazin' Avenue Audio Podcast: Episode 33

In the "How do you say no to Matt Harvey" edition, Chris and Jeffrey show some #slack and spend an hour answering your sb_emails. On the agenda: Another discussion about Wally Backman's managerial bonafides, a consideration of the Mets first base situation, ruminations on Rafael Montero, why you should never go in against a Beane when prospects are on the line, and some yelling about Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran.
