This week, we look at the Mets’ bullpen woes and discuss the sad state of women’s merchandise in MLB.

Welcome back to A Pod of Their Own, a show by the women of Amazin’ Avenue where we talk all things Mets, social justice issues in baseball, and normalize female voices in the sports podcasting space.

This week, we look at the Mets’ unfortunate west coast road trip, and the bullpen meltdowns that made it one to forget. We also welcome back Jeff McNeil and mull over upcoming roster decisions. And in the best update in a long time, we send the very best to Ron Darling in his much-anticipated return to the broadcast booth. (0:43)

Next, we look at the state of women’s merchandise in sports, and how leagues are falling short on design and quality. Why doesn’t MLB want our money? (25:10)

Then we dig into the mailbag and read some of your awesome emails in the Seventh Inning Stretch—keep ‘em coming! (45:23)

Finally, we wrap things up with Walk-off Wins, where each of us talks about what’s making us happy this week, baseball-related or otherwise. (56:30)
