A Pod of Their Own, Episode 96: Dodgers Least

This week on the show, we talk about the Mets’ trading deadline and the Kumar Rocker debacle.

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 Mets’ trading deadline acquisitions, Javier Báez and Trevor Williams, who we are happy about, but the Mets should have done more.

Next, we delve into the Kumar Rocker situation—why it was a disaster that the Mets didn’t sign him, the organizations lack of a backup plan, and how the whole situation is illustrative of how fans are constantly conditioned to side against players and with management.

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.
