Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), Episode 2: Sweden, here we come!

This week, we discuss Pete Alonso, shaky pitching, and more.

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

This week, we look back at the Mets’ homestand and worry about the usage of the bullpen. (0:30)

Then, we (continue to) discuss the potential, or lack thereof, in signing Dallas Keuchel and/or Craig Kimbrel. (7:15)

Next, we talk about Pete Alonso, the Polar Bear himself, and his torrid start at the plate. (26:37)

Finally, we answer an email about Rim Jiggleman Jim RIggleman. (37:57)

Chris’s music picks for the week:

Jeff Tweedy - Warmer
The Replacements - For Sale: Live at Maxwell’s, 1986

Brian’s music picks for the week:

The Valiants - “Jack the Ripper”
Bob Mould - Sunshine Rock
