A Pod of Their Own, Episode 125: In a world full Chase Utleys, be a Jesse Winker

This week, we talk about the injury bug catching up with the Mets, Mazeika Magic, and good and bad villains.

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 injuries to James McCann and Tylor Megill and how the Mets are already at the bottom of their depth in mid-May. But, at least yesterday’s update on Jacob deGrom was positive!

Next, we talk about the various narratives that emerged from the Mariners series—rehashing the Díaz/Canó trade and Jesse Winker being a fun Mets villain. We also discuss the weird grudge Paul Sewald seems to hold against the Mets and the fanbase.

We also briefly discuss Matt Harvey’s 60-game suspension for distributing oxycodone, which may end his career.

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.
