A Pod of Their Own, Episode 184: Grownups In Charge 2024

This week, we talk about the latest reporting on Craig Counsell and the Mets’ front office, the World Series, and comments from Mookie Betts about Trevor Bauer.

Welcome back to A Pod of Their Own, an all-women led Home Run Applesauce podcast 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 latest on Craig Counsell, who is reportedly “serious” about his interest in the Mets’ managing job. We also talk about the latest reporting on the investigation into the Mets, potential front office hires, and the fact that Tommy Pham can’t seem to stop talking about the Mets.

Next, we talk about the World Series, the fireworks from the ALCS, and Dusty Baker’s retirement.

We also react live to Mookie Betts’ comments about Trevor Bauer, which emerged while we were recording the show.

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.
