Amazin’ Avenue Audio, Episode 296: More Wins Than Walks with Bret Saberhagen

This week, a former Met joins the show.

Welcome back to Amazin’ Avenue Audio, where we talk about, of all things, Burning Man.

First up, former Met and Cy Young Award winner Bret Saberhagen joins the show to discuss his time in New York, the changes in the game since he played, and what he thinks of the Mets’ current starting pitching. (1:12)

Next, Steve Sypa goes over the final Minor League players of the week for 2018. (19:56)

Brian Salvatore and Rob Wolff discuss the recent run of great starting pitching, as well as the plan for David Wright. (34:45)

Finally, Allison McCague brings us an exceptionally pleasant version of the Nimmometer and the deGrometer, including a game where Brandon Nimmo and Jacob deGrom combined for practically the entire win. (1:18:41)
