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 nothing really except for the fact that Francisco Lindor is now a New York Met! We share our excitement about the trade that brought him and Carlos Carrasco over from Cleveland and how we got two special players and two very good guys.
Next, we talk about the death of Tommy Lasorda and the complicated legacy he leaves behind.
We then remind everyone of our fundraiser currently taking place. If you donate any time or money to an organization that supports victims of domestic violence, you will be entered into a drawing that will take place on February 23.
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.
