The Amazin' Avenue Audio Podcast: Episode 18

Poooooodddddddcast! Pooooodddddcast! Yes, it's episode 18, the Darryl Strawberry edition. Jeffrey has his good mic back, but unfortunately he has to use it to talk the bad Marlins series with Mike Donato. They also touch on what's up with Zack Wheeler, and whether Jordany Valdespin's clubhouse reputation should matter to Mets fans. Next, Rob Castellano interviews Mets pitching prospect Adam Kolarek about his whirlwind week in Las Vegas. Finally, we wrap up with your e-mails about the glut of major league outfielders, timetables for some Savannah prospects, and the definitive version of "Meet the Mets."
