A Pod of Their Own, Episode 24: The one where we try to figure out what Mickey Callaway is thinking

This week, we try to figure out what is going through Callaway’s brain plus booing your own players is bad.

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 begin by discussing if Jacob deGrom is the Cy Young front runner, the new drama surrounding the Mets, and whether Mickey Callaway’s decision making this past weekend made any sense. Finally, we wrapped up the Mets segment imploring Major League Baseball to allow the team to wear first responder caps on September 11. (0:47)

Next, we talk about why people boo their own players and why we disagree with the practice. (36:18)

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. (59:50)
