A Pod of Their Own, Episode 187: “I never want to hear about Bobby Bonilla ever again”

This week we discuss the Mets’ rather underwhelming offseason so far, how a lot hinges on Yamamoto, the Ohtani contract (and the deferrals therein), the Soto trade, and more.

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 Mets’ offseason moves so far, which have mostly consisted of minor league signings and reclamation projects.

Next, we talk about Shohei Ohtani’s record-breaking contract with the Dodgers, its insane structure, and the frenzy leading up to his signing.

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.
