The Amazin' Avenue Audio Podcast: Episode 47

Rumors of the podcast's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Yes, we are back with the "Tak2: Electric Boogaloo" edition. After a kind of unscheduled holiday break (#blameComcast), Rob and Jeffrey have a lot of news to catch up on. First, the hosts sing the praises of fat pitchers and wonder what the Mets might actually get for Ike Davis. Next, it's time to breakdown the Rule 5 draft results! Then we discuss what we are looking forward to in Metsland in 2014 before switching over to our sister broadcast, Shorstop Avenue Audio, to answer your e-mails.
