Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), Episode 50: Lindor!

Chris and Brian convene for an emergency podcast to discuss the two newest Mets. 

Welcome to Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), the new/old favorite from Amazin’ Avenue editors Chris McShane and Brian Salvatore.

This week, Brian and Chris gather to discuss the blockbuster trade that the Mets pulled off on Wednesday. And while it is sad that Andres Gimenez and Amed Rosario now play in Cleveland, Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco now play in Queens. Let’s take that in for just a minute.

During the show, the Lindor/Carrasco trade is held up against other big Mets trades of the past, the critics of the trade - and yes there are some - are debated, and there’s generally a lot of disbelief that we are actually here, with one of the five best players in baseball manning shortstop for the Mets.

Chris’s Music Picks:

Mike Watt - Contemplating the Engine Room

Brian’s Music Pick:

Pixies - Bossanova
