The Amazin' Avenue Audio Podcast: Episode 41

In the milestone Tom Seaver edition, Jeffrey and Rob take on the hot stove rumor mill. First, we discuss the Phillies signing Marlon Byrd, before moving on to some TRAID thought experiments (which Rob manages to ruin). Then it's e-mail time, and you sent us nine goddamn emails. On the docket: Ike Davis vs. Lucas Duda, part 75, our feelings on trading for Nori Aoki and a potential Curtis Granderson deal, some wacky roster talk, some depressing ownership talk, an analysis of the 1971 Cy Young ballot, and whether or not just taking walks is an actual indicator of plate discipline. Phew, that's a lot.

Run Time: 1:53:19
