Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), Episode 28: Wilpons, Wheeler, and Other Former Mets

The team lost a starter, gained a coaching staff, and are on the verge of a change in ownership.

Welcome to Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), the new/old favorite from Amazin’ Avenue editors Chris McShane and Brian Salvatore.

First up this week, Brian and Chris discuss the upcoming change in ownership, and the various aspects of that deal, including some wishful thinking and some, perhaps, some reluctance to acknowledge that the deal might not happen or, at very least, take a long time to work.

Next up, we discuss some of the Mets’ that fans didn’t acknowledge for their greatness at the time, and transition that into a discussion of the Mets’ new coaching staff.

We then discuss the trade for Jake Marisnick, and try to understand the seeming anger from certain corners of the fanbase over this trade.

Finally, we discuss the departure of Zack Wheeler, and the various aspects of this departure, from the price tag, to the avoidance of a trade at the deadline, to the lack of an extension a few years ago.

Chris’s Music Pick:

Altin Gün - Gece

Brian’s Music Pick:

75 Dollar Bill - I Was Real
