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 Carlos Mendoza hire, the Craig Counsell saga, and the Brewersdown-bad reaction to the Craig Counsell saga. We also shout out Kodai Senga for coming in second in the NL Rookie of the Year voting and Francisco Lindor for winning a Silver Slugger.

Next, we talk about Metropolitan Park—Steve Cohen’s vision for the future of the area around Citi Field—and why we think it’s a positive for the Mets and the community.

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.
