Amazin’ Avenue Audio, Episode 289: All-Star Spectacular

We celebrate the Mets’ sole All-Star, as well as their should be All-Star.

Welcome back to Amazin’ Avenue Audio, where we (sort of) take a break from the misery that is the 2018 New York Mets.

This week, Brian Salvatore and Chris McShane talk about Jacob deGrom and his agent playing hardball, why Brandon Nimmo was snubbed from the All-Star Game, and some childhood memories of the mid-summer classic. (1:09)

Next up, Allison McCague updates the Nimmometer and the deGrometer. (41:22)

Finally, Steve Sypa takes a look at the minor league players of the week. (46:47)
