In Episode 177 of Amazin' Avenue Audio, Greg Karam and I review my notes on several minor league players after a week in Port St. Lucie and consider whether or not any of those observations are signs of things to come. If so, Luis Guillorme might take a big step forward at the plate this year. If not, well, it was a nice few days at spring training. From there, we get to Greg's take on the Mets' release of Ruben Tejada and wrap up the first half of the pod trying not to worry about Michael Conforto's back.
After that, we trade Gregs, as Greg Prince of Faith and Fear in Flushing joins me to discuss his book, Amazin' Again, the process of writing it, and the 2015 Mets in general. We learned that the book was almost not-to-be as the Mets fell short of winning the World Series, but we're glad that it happened anyway, as the team's pennant still made for quite a season.
And don't forget you can e-mail the show at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll be back next week as our hipster host Jeff Paternostro returns to the host's seat.
