Episode 41: Say Orange Back And Forth

by Kevin Goldstein

After an undesired one week layoff, Jason and I return with all sorts of stuff.  We have email, we have draft talk, we have Manny Banuelos talk and we have Adam Rubin from ESPN New York explaining the financial pickle that the Mets find themselves in. And of course, we have music, we have beverages, and we have arguments about Wal-Mart. Viva la Revolución my good people.

Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language. Don't say we didn't warn you.

awesome, if short episode. Kevin - can you post the link for that scorebook you were discussing during the emails? Very intriguing, but was driving at the time, couldn't write it down. Thanks!
