The Amazin' Avenue Audio Podcast: Episode 19

This is the Screamin' Bobby O edition of the podcast, but it should probably be the Matt Harvey edition. In fact all future episodes should be the Matt Harvey edition. Anyway, when Jeffrey is not interrupting Rob with intensely erotic remarks about Matt Harvey's stuff, they discuss why everyone needs to let Duda be Duda, why the Mets bullpen just isn't working out again, and preview potential prospect promotions in the coming weeks. Then, an in-depth discussion of Zack Wheeler's mechanics and injury risk with an assist from Amazin' Avenue Rule 4 draftnik Alex Nelson. And finally, we answer all your e-mails, and Jeffrey publicly apologizes to Yo La Tengo.
