The Amazin' Avenue Audio Podcast: Episode 17

For Episode 17, Jeffrey decided to leave his main microphone in New York City, thus it sounds like he is on location in a small tile bathtub or something. Undeterred, he and Chris talk about the Harvey/Strasburg clash last week and muse about the Mets 25-man roster with the recent promotion of Juan Lagares. Then, Jeffrey discusses his no-good, very bad, horrible day on the Garden State Parkway before giving you the lowdown on Steve Matz, Gabriel Ynoa, and Brandon Nimmo. Finally, we wrap things up with your e-mails.
