The Amazin' Avenue Audio Podcast: Episode 49

In the " Hey, did you know Jon Niese was born the same day the Mets won the World Series?" edition, Rob and Jeffrey do their best to contrive a podcast out of a slow Mets news week. We talk #MetsTwitter (literally), the non-roster Spring Training invites, the 2014 Mets ZIPS projections, and English soccer for some reason. Then it is e-mail time, wherein Rob and Jeffrey have to make some hard decisions and confront their own mortality. We also discuss Dom Smith, small sample sizes, and declining offensive levels, before wrapping up with our picks for Mets players who should end up in the broadcast booth (and more soccer talk).
