Amazin' Avenue Audio, Episode 208: The Opt-Out Speculation Spectacular

We chat about the seemingly inevitable Yoenis Cespedes opt-out and other things facing the Mets this offseason.

Welcome back to Amazin' Avenue Audio. It is the World Series, and the Mets, sadly, are not in it.

First up, Brian and Chris talk about the likelihood that Yoenis Cespedes opts out of his deal with the Mets, whether we would make Neil Walker a Qualifying Offer, and answer listener questions. (1:08)

Steve Sypa and Greg Karam continue their discussion of the Arizona Fall League, and discuss the possibility of an international draft. (46:22)

New contributor Kaitlin McCabe looks at a forgotten Met from 2000 National League Championship team, Kurt Abbott. (1:01:12)

Aaron Yorke discusses Andrew Miller's postseason usage, and how the Mets may be able to learn from his success. (1:03:26)

And, finally, Kate Feldman checks in with the Panic City Meter now that the Mets are out of the postseason. (1:10:32)
