In this week’s episode, I was joined by Allison McCague. Allison covers the Mets over at SB Nation’s Amazin’ Avenue and is a legit scientist. We talked about, you guessed it, the Mets (and some science!) and the general incompetence of the owners of the team.
We discussed the moves made (and not made) at the trade deadline and how that sets the Mets up for the future and the present. The Mets are in a similar position as the Giants with regards to the hunt for the Wild Card and we talked about whether they have what it takes to make a run at it.
We touched briefly on the Giants’ moves, but you should really listen to last week’s Chroncast for more on that. Bryan and Doug broke it all down for you there. Speaking of which, you should subscribe to the Chroncast feed to make sure you get every new episode of all of our podcasts! We’re also on iTunes, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, and brand new for this season — Spotify.
Also, if you’d like to read the piece from Baseball Prospectus that Allison references on the podcast, you can do so here.
After this episode, Happy Hour is going on a brief hiatus, but we’ll be back soon!
