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 welcome Mark Simon of Sports Info Solutions and The Athletic, and we discuss the ins and outs of measuring defense (and how the Mets are doing - spoiler alert: not great) and Mark’s countdown of the greatest Mets home runs of all time.

Next, we each share who our favorite Mets player is, and share some listener responses as well - add yours in the comments below!

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. You can find out more about Mark’s walk-off win, Save with Stories, on Instagram and stream New York City Ballet’s Digital Spring Season along with Maggie here.
