Welcome back to Amazin' Avenue Audio. This week, we dig into the trade deadline, talk about some surprising Met success stories, and more.
First up, Brian Salvatore and Chris McShane discuss the two trades the team made ahead of the non-waiver trade deadline, Jacob deGrom’s recent success, and debate the next former Met to have his number to be retired by the team (1:18).
Next up, Bryan Renzi joins the show for a Piazza-centric Forgotten Mets segment, highlighting one of the pieces the Mets traded for Piazza (1:17:28). Lukas Vlahos then looks at the Jay Bruce trade in the Weekly Stat, and finds little consolation (1:22:44).
Chris then chats with Wick Terrell from the Red Reporter about the Jay Bruce for Dilson Herrera and Max Wotell trade (1:31:13). Wick can be found on Twitter (@wickterrell), read his piece on the trade for the Red Reporter here.
Aaron Yorke then looks into Alejandro de Aza’s remarkable July (1:56:09), Steve Schreiber shares a wonderful Keith moment for This Week in SNY (2:02:49), and Kate Feldman reminds us that loving the Mets means loving misery in the weekly Panic City Meter (2:06:51).
