A Pod of Their Own, Episode 58: We’re pro-fun

This week we chat about the Mets rotation challenges, the bright spots, and “unwritten rules.”

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 the house of cards that is the Mets’ rotation—the continued struggles of Steven Matz, along with Corey Oswalt having to fill in for David Peterson. But, the 2020 season has had bright spots, including Robinson Cano, Andres Gimenez, Luis Guillorme, J.D. Davis, and Michael Conforto.

Next, we talk about Fernando Tatis Jr. upsetting the “unwritten rules” crowd with the grand slam he hit 3-0. On this podcast, we support fun players being fun.

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.
