A Pod of Their Own, Episode 122: The Mets are Good?!

This week, we talk about the Mets’ early run of strong play on the field, the strange nature of Jacob deGrom’s injury update, looming roster decisions, and more.

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 with a celebration of the Mets’ improbable comeback win against the Cardinals and the fact that the Mets very well may be a Good baseball team.

Next, we talk about the odd sequence of events that was the update on Jacob deGrom, which was very Metsy, but culminated in (mostly) good news.

We then discuss the tough choices the Mets will have to make with the roster come May 1 when rosters shrink from 28 to 26. We make the argument that Robinson Canó is not the answer for this team moving forward.

In a quick baseball segment this week, we talk about how the baseball is dead again; we will cover that in greater depth next week when we have Dr. Meredith Wills back on the show. We also provide a quick update on Trevor Bauer, who has now sued the woman who accused him of sexual assault.

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.
