Welcome to UnforMETable, a new show from Amazin’ Avenue that looks back on less heralded, more obscure, but quintessential Mets players from the past

This week, Rob Wolff travels back to the 2001 season to take a look at the inexplicably productive season that a utility player claimed off of waivers the previous season had with the Mets. Hear about Desi Relaford’s impressive season with the Mets, his memorable mop-up pitching appearance that year, and his thoughts on the Phillies and their fans that just might make some Mets fans feel even more kinship with the former Met.

As always, you can listen or subscribe to this and all of our wonderful Amazin’ Avenue Audio podcasts through Apple Podcasts, where we encourage you to leave a review if you enjoy the show. It really helps! And you can find us on the Stitcher app, or listen through the embedded player below.
