Episode 15: Commiserating (with special guest Nicholas Brandt)

We sent Will out to uncover some more of the AA relief pitchers Sandy Alderson is so fond of. So Nicholas Brandt stops by to talk about how being a Mets fan in Buffalo is not that different from being one in New York City, the importance of grandmothers, and the universal antipathy towards Chase Utley. Also, a very special scouting report. Special Guest: Nicholas Brandt.

Episode 14: Dog Days of September

FTA Special Bonus Episode: Equal Time with Ally Eastland

Jay is no longer on assignment but this came up last minute so Will faces off with Ally Eastland, an angry Cards fan looking to defend her team. Will and Ally talk about why someone would like a team that is not the Mets and how to choose a team when there's no MLB team in your home state. There is also talk of rally animals and a cat with a lawyer. This one is a delight. We had some audio issues in the first half but bear with us because this is a great chat. Special Guest: Ally Eastland.

Episode 13: Goodbye Curtis

Curtis Granderson is an angel sent from heaven and life is meaningless but we soldier on just like The Mets are in this hopeless season. In this episode Jay reveals the nature of his travels. We talk a lot about that other team in NY and a debate erupts over the definition of "upstate." Jay has a dream about The Marlins. It's a jam packed episode with more wins than the Mets have had recently.
