A Pod of Their Own, Episode 188: Florida himbo boys

In our first pod of 2024, we chat about the Bader and Manaea signings, the baseball media rehabbing Trevor Bauer’s image, and the latest in the Wander Franco investigation.

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 Harrison Bader and Sean Manaea signings, which are both good in theory, but still make for an underwhelming offseason, despite the excellent vibes of Bader and Pete Alonso being reunited. We also chat about the current state of the rotation and rumors that the Mets are still looking to add arms via trade.

Next, we talk about Trevor Bauer attempting to rehab his image as he tries to return to Major League Baseball and the baseball media lapping that right up. We also talk about the latest in the Wander Franco investigation.

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.
