Welcome to Episode 185 of Amazin’ Avenue Audio. We are still all on cloud nine from Bartolo Colon's big night on Saturday, but we promise to talk about more than just his big home run.
First up, Brian and Chris talk about Bartolo Colon, the bullpen's effectiveness, and whether or not the team is hitting "too many" home runs (1:00).
Next, Steve Schreiber shares the best moment from our friends at SNY in the past week—and we think you can guess what it is (25:30).
- Let's Invent a New Pitch
- Learning the Language of the Clubhouse
- Beergraphs (and be sure to keep an eye out for Eno's forthcoming book: A Craft Beer Lover's Guide to Baseball)
- Pitch grips (plenty of them on Eno's page at Fangraphs here)
Plus, Noel Purcell outlines Met prospect P.J. Conlon (1:01:01), Aaron Yorke discusses two Met hitters (1:03:48), Kate Feldman discusses forgotten Met Eddie Bressoud (1:12:19), Steve Sypa gives us our first Nippon Ham Fighters update (1:15:45), and Nic Tatano shares a poem with us (1:21:01).
