The Amazin' Avenue Audio Podcast: Episode 40

In the "Hire Brian Bannister for the SNY post-game show already" edition, we are forced to record after Rob's bedtime. So Greg Karam joins Jeffrey to appreciate Carlos Beltran and get in-depth on just how obnoxious the Mets budget constraints are. Then they discuss who might take a step forward this year from within the system to help the 2014 Mets. After that, Alex Nelson joins the show to talk about why the Mets didn't pick Michael Wacha and discuss the 2013 draft. We have no idea how this went two hours either, since the biggest news of the week is Daniel Murphy watching a Tottenham Hotspur game.
