Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), Episode 54: Cookie’s Hamstring and Met Dogs with Ted Berg

This week, an old friend stops by to discuss the rotation, 20% attendance at Opening Day, and 90s rock.

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

Friend of the pod and co-host of the Metrospectives podcast Ted Berg joins Brian and Chris for the show today, bringing wit, wisdom, and Cole Hamels goofs to the pod.

First up, the boys discuss Carlos Carrasco’s hamstring injury and what that may mean for the back-end of the rotation. A digression into the Joey Lucchesi and Jordan Yamamoto’s dogs ensues, before discussing the pitchers themselves.

Next, Jacob deGrom’s dominant spring has the hosts marveling at what is fast becoming a Hall of Fame career path for Jake.

Finally, the topic of attendance at baseball games in 2021 is discussed, with all three co-hosts expressing some hesitation about attending games this season.

Ted’s Music Pick:

The Mountain Goats - The Sunset Tree

Chris’s Music Pick:

Fuzz - III

Brian’s Music Pick:

Mad Season - Above (Deluxe Edition)
