Welcome to Episode 184 of Amazin’ Avenue Audio. This is Brian Salvatore’s first show in the hosting chair, and so hopefully you’ll enjoy the new format of Amazin’ Avenue Audio.
First up, Chris McShane talks with Newsday’s Marc Carig (2:29) about his Californian roots, ballparks, and pitcher velocity. Note: Marc was calling in from a rental car, so forgive the sound quality being less than stellar for our interview.
Next, (21:45) Steve Schreiber brings us an audio installment of ‘This Week in SNY,’ followed by Kate Feldman’s look at this week’s forgotten Met, Desi Relaford (23:27).
Aaron Yoke then examines the Mets’ recent struggles against left-handed pitching, and what that means for the team going forward (26:52).
Brian and Chris then talk about the last week in Mets news and games, and answer your one email for the week (34:58).
Noel Purcell takes a look at prospect David Thompson (1:15:00), Steve Sypa introduces us to our new foreign rooting interest (1:18:22), and then Brian wraps up the show with our contact information (1:20:38).
