From Complex to Queens Logo

Welcome to From Complex to Queens, the podcast from Amazin’ Avenue focusing on the Mets’ minor leagues.

This week, the team plays a speed-related Promote, Extend, Trade.

After, the team discusses the hitter and pitcher of the week, Travis Taijeron and Daison Acosta.

Next, Steve, Lukas, and Ken discuss the bread-and-butter of most pitchers: the fastball. The physics involved in how the ball travels, how hitters perceive it, and who has the best fastball in the Mets minor league system.

Finally, the team reminisces about a player that had success around this time in years past in Oh Yeah, That Guy.
