A Pod of Their Own, Episode 89: A little sunscreen, as a treat

This week we have Sara Sanchez of Fangraphs and Bleed Cubbie Blue on to chat about all things Mets and Cubs. We also talk about the sticky stuff.

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, since the Mets are facing off against the Cubs, we have Sara Sanchez of Fangraphs and our sister site Bleed Cubbie Blue on to give Mets fans a primer on this hot Cubs team—the keys to their success, how they might be approaching the trading deadline, and more.

We also discuss vaccine hesitancy among the players on our respective teams and the details that have emerged about MLB’s policing of foreign substance use by pitchers and how it might backfire.

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.
