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

This week, Steve and Ken discuss the hitter and pitcher of the week, Sebastian Espino and Drew Gagnon.

After, they take a look back at a variety of minor leagues, both top prospects and organizational farmhands, who ended their careers prematurely and retired due to injuries.

Finally, the team reminisces about players that had success around this time in years past in “Oh Yeah, That Guy”: Champ Stuart and Michael Katz.
