The Amazin' Avenue Audio Podcast: Episode 36

In the "Why exactly haven't the Mets retired Jerry Koosman's number yet?" editon, Jeffrey and Rob bring you the Amazin' Avenue Audio Playoff Preview! The Mets are not going to the playoffs this year (spoiler alert), but that doesn't mean we can't help you pick a team to root for in the month of October. After that, we consider who should have moved to shortstop if the Mets had forced a tenth inning against San Francisco last Thursday, and we wrap up, as usual, with your e-mails, during which, also as usual, Jeffrey completely loses the plot.
