The Amazin' Avenue Audio Podcast: Episode 38

In the "Rick Aguilera looks suspiciously like the other Dad from 'My Two Dads'" edition, Rob and Jeffrey are back after a week off (#BlamePaternostro). This week, we grade the Mets 2013 starters, debate Zack Wheeler's future, and talk about the bullpen as little as possible. After that there is a sneak preview of our AAOPs, as we discuss who should take Matt Harvey's innings in 2014. Then, it's time to talk about Josh Satin, you guys! Finally, we wrap up with your e-mails, which we manage to answer in a relatively brisk manner. Well, for us.
