Amazin’ Avenue Audio, Episode 286: Pessimism in Mountain Time

Welcome back to Amazin’ Avenue Audio, where we try to help Chris regain some hope about the Mets.

This week, Brian Salvatore and Chris McShane talk about the general pessimism surrounding this time, and lament the fact that Dominic Smith is playing in the outfield. (1:20)

Next up, Steve Sypa takes a look at the recent standout performances in the minor leagues. (32:01)

Aaron Yorke looks at the current state of the rotation. (37:14)

And finally, Allison McCague debuts our newest segment, the Nimmometer and the deGrometer, which focus on - you guessed it - Brandon Nimmo and Jacob deGrom. (45:51)
