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

A bunch of New York sports legends share the same birthday, so the team sorts through them in Promote, Extend, Trade.

After, Steve gives an update on our adopted CPBL team, the Uni-President Lions, our adopted KBO team, the LG Twins, and our adopted NPB team, the Yakult Swallows. We focus on a former Mets player, Chris Flexen, and discuss why he has been so dominant for the Doosan Bears.

Next, the team goes over some Mets roster news and discuss how Marcus Stroman accepting his qualifying offer impacts the 2021 MLB Draft.

Finally, following Steve Cohen’s introductory press conference and some major news regarding the future of the Mets’ minor league system, the team discusses what things are going to look like for 2021 and beyond and how that will have an impact on the players in the system and minor league baseball as a whole.
