The Amazin' Avenue Audio Podcast: Episode 44

In the "Blastings Thrilledge" edition, Jeffrey and Rob spend twenty minutes talking about a player who was non-tendered by the New York Mets five minutes after they finished recording. They are good at podcasting (also, prognosticating). Before that though, Rob bids a fond farewell to JV1 for some reason, while Jeffrey rants about Edgardo Alfonzo being left off the Hall of Fame ballot again. Then the hosts discuss potential holiday bargains for Sandy and co. and answer an e-mail about MLB farm systems. Somewhere in there Jeffrey says that there's no way the Mets will non-tender Justin Turner because he was in their Christmas card this year. Ah well, it was one of those shows.
