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 past week of Mets baseball, including the struggles of Carlos Carrasco, whose career may be over. We talk about all sorts of sad pitcher news, including Shohei Ohtani’s torn UCL, Noah Syndergaard’s DFA, and Stephen Strasburg’s retirement.
We also talk about the Pete Alonso trade rumors and the latest on Edwin Díaz’s progress toward game action.
In our baseball segment this week, we discuss other teams following the Athletics’ lead in threatening to relocate if they do not get the funds for renovated/new stadiums.
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.
