The Amazin' Avenue Audio Podcast: Episode 32

It's a rather funereal installment of Amazin' Avenue Audio this week. In the Jon Matlack edition, Rob and Jeffrey break down the breakdown of Mets ace, Matt Harvey and what it means for the Mets (and their young pitching prospects) going forward. Then, Jason Parks of Baseball Prospectus joins the podcast to give us the lowdown on the newest Mets prospect, Dilson Herrera. Finally, it's email time of course. Jeffrey auditions for a role as WFAN drive-time caller #11, Rob #haslobby for Bruce Chen, and we talk about Robert Gsellman and other Brooklyn Cyclones of note in our prospect of the week segment.
