A Pod of Their Own, Episode 159: Brett Baty, sponsored by New York-Presbyterian

This week on the show, we discuss the past week in Mets baseball, which included a truly chaotic series against the A’s, Brett Baty’s callup, the horrendous patches on the Mets’ uniforms, 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 winning five out of six last week, including a sweep of the A’s which featured some historic badness from the A’s pitching staff. We also talked about the Mets’ latest roster moves, including the major one: the promotion of top prospect Brett Baty to the big leagues.

In our baseball segment this week, we talk about the horrendous new patches on the Mets’ uniform patches and the disturbing trend these ads represent, which Rich Staff recently wrote about for Amazin’ Avenue.

The craven greed of owners has also manifested itself in the new alcohol policies at stadiums, which have arisen as a result of the shorter games. We discuss this and Matt Strahm’s very thoughtful quote about it.

We also briefly talked about Mike Clevinger using “Gold Digger” by Kayne West as his warmup music because of course that’s his warmup music.

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.
