UnforMETable, Episode 81: Jose Offerman

A punch thrown, a bat swung, and a body slamming son in law.

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin’ Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past.

2005 was a year of big changes for the Mets: new GM, new manager, new superstars. One of the new additions who did not get the front page headlines - at least not while playing for the Mets - was Jose Offerman. His pre and post Mets careers are far more eventful than his time in Queens, but that’s why we are here, isn’t it?

As always, you can listen or subscribe to this and all of our wonderful Amazin’ Avenue Audio podcasts through Apple Podcasts, where we encourage you to leave a review if you enjoy the show. It really helps! And you can find us on the Stitcher app, or listen wherever you get podcasts.

If you’ve got an idea for a player to be featured on UnforMETable, let us know in the comments.

Make sure to follow Rob on Twitter (@WolffRR), and you can now follow the show, too (@unformetable). Tune in next week for another tale from the Mets’ past.
