The Amazin' Avenue Audio Podcast: Episode 13

In Episode 13, Chris and Jeffrey catch up on all the news coming out of camp in the last week. We share our favorite David Wright memories in honor of his captaincy, consider why Zack Wheeler and Travis d'Arnaud will be spending a month in Vegas, and try and predict how the 40-man roster crunch will shake out. Then we discuss who we are looking forward to watching on the 2013 Mets. Finally, Infield Avenue Audio answers all your Mets infield e-mails. Wait, that doesn't sound right.
