Luis Rojas is GONE, Paul DePodesta Rumors, and how Valuable is Francisco Álvarez?
The boys are back from their quick hiatus with a jam-packed offseason episode! We start out with the news that Luis Rojas will not return to the Mets as manager. Sure, it happened a while ago but we haven't spoken since! Marc and James differ on who they would like to see as the next Mets manager and James breaks down what he thinks the modern baseball manager could look like. Really, this all comes down to our next President of Baseball Operations and GM, so we touch on that for a while and the CRAZY rumor that it could be Paul DePodesta. That discussion takes us to a conversation about where the Mets' roster stands and I have some bad news....it's not great. We close the show with a fun poll about Álvarez posted last week by Anthony DiComo and some listener shoutouts. No games can't slow down the Mets'd Up Boys.

The 2021 Mets Season is Officially Over...Now What?
The season has finally, mercifully come to an end. We tie up the loose ends of this Braves series. James talks about how Tylor Megill can be used most effectively in 2022 while Marc reminisces on his guy, Jeurys Familia, in what was probably his last outing as a Met. The games were the games, they happened, Thor looked bad, Pete didn't get to 40, whatever. We ramble about baseball for a little while before sharing our plans for the off-season. Tune it!

Noah Syndergaard Came Back, Michael Conforto Cried, Pete Alonso Got Closer to 40 Home Runs, and the Mets Handled the Marlins
Ah, bittersweet, bittersweet. This was weirdly an eventful week for the Mets because...well...they all are. We started out talking about Thursday's game here because we were in attendance and it was fresh on our minds. We had a great day and met so many of our amazing listeners which was an incredible experience! On top of that, the Mets smacked the Marlins around and Michael Conforto got emotional in what might have been his last home game as a Met. Afterwards, we broke down the first three games of this series. James gave some unbelievable double-header facts as the Mets played their final twin-bill of the season. Noah Syndergaard pitched the 2nd game and his return gives us a lot to think about. Lastly, we close with the Mets' disappointing loss on Wednesday where Seth Lugo blew the lead and James broke down why Lugo has not looked quite right all year. Packed episode, almost to the finish line!

The Mets are DEAD, Noah Syndergaard's Strange Rehab, and Kyle Boddy Rumors
So awful, just terrible. The Mets were swept by the Brewers this weekend and did not even make it competitive. They couldn't hit, field, or pitch in a brutal display of apathetic baseball. Such a shame to have seen this team fall so hard and so fast. Javy and Lindor are still hitting, same with Nimmo, but that's it. Gary and Keith let their opinion be known this weekend and we discuss that for a little bit. Also, Noah Syndergaard's weird rehab, the Kyle Boddy rumors, and number retirements. Woo

September 23, 2021
Brad Hand STINKS, Billy Beane Rumors, and the Mets Lose Two of Three to the Phillies
Lather, rinse, repeat. This Mets team cannot score any runs and their season has fallen by the wayside because of that tragic flaw. Zack Wheeler crushed us on Friday and Aaron Nola did it again on Saturday. Who could have ever seen that coming? Oh yeah, and Brad Hand found a way to botch an inning in each affair. Great series, just splendid. After dissecting the games, we talk about the increasing momentum of Billy Beane coming to the Mets and the litany of reports linking the two. Marc talks about what Bob Melvin could bring this bullpen while James talks about Beane's strengths and weaknesses before revealing a dark-horse candidate for the President of Baseball Operations who has not yet been publicized.

The Season is Over (Again), Luis Rojas is on the Hot Seat, Marcus Stroman is an Ace, and the Mets got Swept by the Cardinals
Bad series. Really bad series. One of the WORST series the Mets played all season. We break down every game and wallow in our sadness for the season probably finally being over. James breaks down Adam Wainwright and shares a hidden reason about how and why he is still able to pitch at such a high level. Marc let's Albert Almora have it and both of our patience with Luis Rojas is beginning to wear thin. One silver-lining, Marcus Stroman is a marvel and James describes how he has been so dominant and whether it can last through 2022 and beyond. More jokes this episode because we're sad. We're all just dust in the wind anyway.
September 16, 2021
Francisco Lindor is a Legend, the Subway Series was Awesome, the Yankees Love to Whistle, and the Mets are Back
Massive series this weekend. One of the most fun this season, no doubt about it. We break down all three games including Friday's wire-to-wire domination, Saturday's chaos, and Sunday's drama. James offers some reasons for optimism regarding Carlos Carrasco while Marc throws hate on the Yankees every chance he gets. Later, we gush over Francisco Lindor and hope everyone FINALLY realizes the type of player we have here. If you don't James' Bad Mets Take of the week revisits a June article from the Washington Post explaining why Francisco Lindor is worse than Chris Davis. No, really. The show ends with our Cardinals Preview and heaps of positivity. Lets go!
September 13, 2021
Edwin Diaz Blows Another Save, Luis Rojas is on the Hot Seat, Mets Season Might Be Over & Francisco Alvarez Interview
Well, that’s all folks. The Mets lost two of three to the Marlins and the season sure feels over. Marc definitely thinks so and tells you why right off the rip. We explain why the Mets are not on the same level as the best teams in baseball, how they can possibly get there, and who would maybe be around if they DO end up there. We yell, scream, rant, it’s a lot of fun so listen in. After the chaos, we FINALLY have the Francisco Alvarez interview ready to drop and you won’t want to miss it
September 10, 2021
Edwin Diaz Blows It, Francisco Lindor & Javy Baez are HOT and Mets Disappoint in Washington
Weird episode. Weird series. Five games are way too many to play against the same team and it showed with some sloppy baseball over the holiday weekend. The Mets lost two winnable games and we can't let that go. Also, James talks about a potentially important adjustment by Tylor Megill and Marc breaks down what is wrong with Jeff McNeil. Most importantly, Andrew Stevenson can legit kick rocks.
September 7, 2021

What a freakin' win that was and it set the Mets up for a SWEEEEEEEP. In between all these fun breakdowns, we have to talk about Zack Scott's DUI. It is clear the Mets current front office regime is not the right mix of executives and we tell you who can be better.

Marcus Stroman is an Ace, Brandon Nimmo is Elite, and the Mets Lost Three Winnable Games Against the Dodgers
Tough series in Los Angles. We knew it would be tough, but man was it tough. We break down every game for you because that's what we do. Every single frustrating at-bat, decision, strike call, and missed opportunity. This Dodgers team is full of great, underappreciated players from top to bottom and James gets deep on exactly why their roster construction is so brilliant and how it gives them a leg up with in-season transactions. Of course, we pull some positives like the play of Pete Alonso, Carlos Carrasco, Marcus Stroman, and Brandon Nimmo. More so, we break down what contract negotiations will look like for those last two guys. After the games, we answer some of YOUR questions that were sent on Twitter. We discuss playing time for our fringe starters once Lindor is activated (sorry Dom Smith), what the Mets should do with Michael Conforto, whether or not we still have a shot in the division, and what the Mets' offseason might look like. James is positive, Marc is negative, and fun is had by all.
August 23, 2021
Steve Cohen Tweets, Ronny Mauricio Interview, and the Mets Salvage their Series with the Giants
These west coast games are downright BRUTAL. We take you through all three and get deep into the nitty-gritty because, well, a lot of really interesting things happened. James describes what makes the Giants so good and how they are better to strategize better than any other team in baseball while Marc takes shots at Gabe Kapler. We heap praise on Marcus Stroman and Tylor Megill because those two studs deserve our gratitude. Bad Take of the Week comes back because we have a lot to say about Tim Healey. What a nerd loser. We also talk about what Steve Cohen tweeted on Thursday because that was a huge deal. After the Giants recap, we have our interview with Ronny Mauricio. It was amazing to talk to such a talented prospect and he shares some insight into life in Brooklyn, his game, and what position he sees himself playing in the future. Lastly, we have our Dodgers preview and James tells everyone where to get the best sandwich in Brooklyn. This is a PACKED episode!
August 19, 2021
Luis Rojas Questionable Decision-Making, Taijuan Walker Almost Throws a No-Hitter & Mets get Swept by Dodgers
Yikes, rough series against the Dodgers. James was in the ballpark on Friday and had a whole lot to say about the lineup, laser pointer, atmosphere and result. We are also totally done with James McCann and tell you why. It wasn’t all bad though. The bullpen was great and Taijuan Walker stepped up, we just still can’t hit at all. Sunday was a joke. The Giants series may not be better
August 16, 2021
Pete Alonso Saves the Mets, Brandon Nimmo is on Fire, Jaylen Palmer Interview, Prospect Report, and the Mets Swept the Nationals
What a crazy series against the Nationals. There was SO MUCH to talk about between the rain, Rich Hill running, Brandon Nimmo hitting ropes, more rain, Edwin Diaz's heroics, more rain, Marcus Stroman's strong start, and Pete Alonso's HUGE home run. We break it down from beginning to end. Later, we bring on our first guest ever, Jaylen Palmer from the Cyclones! We talked to Jaylen in Brooklyn last week and he shared a little bit about himself, his game, and what it's like to be a minor leaguer. Afterward, we dive into our weekly Prospect Report and talk about the Mets' most exciting prospects. We close the show with a preview of the Dodgers Series and our honest expectations for the rest of the season. James also killed ANOTHER mosquito mid recording.
August 13, 2021
Michael Conforto is Broken, Javy Baez Might be Injured, Pete Alonso Said Something Positive, and the Mets are a Disaster
Yikes....if you thought the last episode was bad get ready for a whole new level. We scrapped our normal game-by-game format to just vent about the awful weekend in Mets Land. Marc ripped Michael Conforto, James ripped Dom Smith, and AJ Pollock was mentioned more than a few times for some reason. We really ask the question of whether or not this team has enough to make the Postseason and hope everyone can see just how important Francisco Lindor is/was to this team. We close out the show by answering some questions you guys tweeted at us, give a few fun shoutouts, and we take a quiz that a listener sent in.
August 9, 2021
The Javy Baez Experience is Fully Underway, Taijuan Walker is Shot, and the Mets Season is Spiraling FAST

Javy Baez and Trevor Williams are Mets while Pete Crow-Armstrong is headed to Chicago. There were tons of strange and unexpected things that happened on deadline day and we break it all down for you. Then, the games. The guys were in attendance Friday and Sunday and might have just whole jinxed the team (really James is the jinx but you'll hear more about that). This series was so bad it broke our brains and you will listen to us try and figure out who the Mets played last weekend. No, really. After we rant about Anthony Banda, Geoff Hartleib, Michael Conforto, and Luis Rojas, we break down the Kumar Rocker situation. What went wrong here, and why WE think the Mets may have made the right call. The episode ends with our Marlins Preview and a teaser for potentially the FIRST EVER METS'D UP GUEST NEXT WEEK. Packed episode!

Mets Trade Deadline Predictions, Trouble with Kumar Rocker, Struggles with the Braves, and the Black Jerseys Return

Kyle Muller and Austin Riley are officially Rat F*cks, Tylor Megill stayed hot, and Jeff McNeil has finally turned a corner. That's all great, but we cannot think about anything but WHO the Mets are going to get before Friday's deadline. We spend some talking about Kumar Rocker's contract dispute and whether we think a deal will actually get done with the 10th overall pick and just how we have gotten to this point. The episode closes with a preview of the Reds series and we are BEYOND excited for Carlos Carrasco and the black jerseys to return on Friday night!

James, being a man formerly of Ohio, has a hilarious anecdote about Skyline Chili that you won't want to miss. We get into the rest of the series afterward, giving Marcus Stroman his due credit for stepping up on Wednesday and Luis Guillorme props for responding after a brutal game Monday. You will accidentally meet James' loud roommates later on, sorry about that, while we do our weekly prospect report and talk about some guys who could be on the move this week with the trade deadline rapidly approaching. We close the show with our Blue Jays preview and Marc shares some not-so-kind words about Steven Matz before James confuses himself tremendously while sharing his Blue Jay to Watch.

Jose Alvarado FIGHT, Who is Donnie Stevenson & Rhys Hoskins Hits a Double
The Mets vs Phillies series was one for the ages. Jose Alvarado woke up the sleeping Mets after taunting them profusely for seemingly no reason. We learned about a new hire in the Mets organization by the name of "Donnie Stevenson", who is this mystery man who has apparently fixed the Mets hitting. Of course we end it with the crazy roller coaster game 3 where Rhys Hoskins cried about ground rules at his own park and ended up hitting a meaningless double in the 9th to still lose the game and the series. LETS GO METS!
May 3, 2021

The Mets can't hit. The Mets can't field. The Mets can't beat the Cubs. We don't know what is going on and we need to vent. Safe to say Marc & James got a little hot in this episode!

Mets Pitching is Nasty. Mets Hitting is Ice Cold.
Marc and James talk about the Mets vs Rockies series in which the pitching carried us big time. The hitting has been about as cold as it was in Colorado this past weekend but it doesn't matter when you have Jacob deGrom and Marcus Stroman pitching incredibly well. Pete Alonso, Brandon Nimmo and even Edwin Diaz look really sharp and the Mets have a big series against the Cubs starting tomorrow!

Mets got OWNED by the Phillies but it can be FIXED
The New York Mets go 1-2 against the Philadelphia Phillies in their opening series to start the 2021 MLB Season. The Mets had a lot of things go wrong, a lot of weird problems but all of them can be fixed. Weird lineups, ineffective bullpen usage and management, sloppy play and a lack of hits with RISP, it was a tough series for the Mets. The Phillies were just better and beat the Mets. Disappointing start to the year but we have things to look forward too!
