A Pod of Their Own, Episode 145: The Mets are ghosting like it’s Tinder

This week, we discuss the future of the Mets’ front office, the ghosting of J.T. Realmuto, and the troubling rise of anti-semitic sentiment among prominent public figures, including athletes.

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 David Stearns stepping down as president of baseball operations with the Brewers and whether the Mets may pursue him for their front office in the future.

Next, we talk about how the Mets expressed interest in J.T. Realmuto last offseason, but then never followed up—as J.T. Realmuto plays in the World Series for the Mets’ division rival.

Then, we discuss Marcus Stroman’s troubling tweets and Twitter likes containing anti-semitic dog whistles and the general rise of anti-semitic sentiments expressed by public figures.

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.
