Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), Episode 5: Catching Woes and Riggleman Hype

This week, we welcome a guest host and discuss the early season woes.

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

This week, Allison McCague (@PetitePhd) of A Pod of Their Own sits in for Chris, and she and Brian discuss the Mets’ catching situation, specifically the Travis d’Arnaud release, the Devin Mesoraco debacle, and the offensive prowess of Tomas Nido.

Then, we discuss the Mickey Callaway managerial technique, the inevitable rise of Jim Riggleman and, perhaps, some reasons for optimism.

Chris Allison’s music picks for the week:

Panic at the Disco - Death of a Bachelor
Panic at the Disco - Pray for the Wicked
Various Artists - The Prince of Egypt Soundtrack

Brian’s music picks:

The Mountain Goats - In League with Dragons
The Baseball Project - Volume One: Frozen Ropes and Dying Quails
