For All You Kids Out There

In May 2016, Jeffrey Paternostro and Jarrett Seidler recorded a three-hour, rambling podcast about the first month of Mets baseball and an improbable Bartolo Colon home run. Thus, For All You Kids Out There, an overly intellectual, late night cocktail lounge conversation between two lifelong Mets fans was born. With thirteen years of prospect writing (and sixty years of pulling out hair out watching Mets baseball) combined, we cover everything from the low minors to the majors, trades and free agent signings, and other assorted weird Metropolitan ephemera.

Episode 246: "I am once again asking for you to talk about the Mets"

October 26th, 2020

In Episode 246 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett discuss the playoffs (after announcing they won’t talk about the playoffs), NYC mayoral politics, and instructional league video. In the second half of the show, they talk…well, more about the playoffs with Editor-in-Chief Craig Goldstein. And in the third half of the show we answer questions on different varieties of baseball cheating and what to do with BVW.

Episode 245: Can we please talk about the Mets?

October 19th, 2020

In Episode 245 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey would like a brisk discussion of the playoffs and the Mets ownership scuttlebutt, but Jarrett takes us on a whirlwind tour of personal pref lists and poker stories from the 00s. We do eventually get to the latest in Mets news such as it is, and then handle a four-part email in the third half of the show. That e-mail does not include G1 thoughts, but we toss those in anyway.

Episode 244: "Listener-Supported Radio"

October 13th, 2020

With the Mets…uh…not in the playoffs according to our notes, it’s going to be a sparse news week for Episode 244 of For All You Kids Out There, so Jeffrey and Jarrett turn the agenda over to the listeners. We do have to employ Rob Mains for a particularly complicated financial question, although Jarrett is far more qualified to handle that one than the one about bands of the 2010s.

Episode 243: "Literally a Phillies podcast"

October 5th, 2020

In Episode 243 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett break down where it all went wrong for the Phillies and Matt Klentak. I think we tie it back into the Mets around the 30-minute mark. We also discuss what a Lindor trade might look like, because there’s a low of down time for a Mets podcast now, so might as well speculate on Francisco Lindor in orange and blue. In the second half of the show we answer your correspondence and delve deep on the changes to scouting and player development in the as of yet unknown new PBA. And in the third half of the show we go over the WON Hall of Fame ballot with Brady.

Episode 242: "Yeah, I guess the end is here"

September 28th, 2020

In Episode 242 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett spend the first half of the show on our end-of-season podcast tradition, spending 30 seconds* on each 2020 Met. Then in the second half of the show we chat about what Sandy Alderson as Team President might bring in the near future to Queens baseball. Finally in the third half of the show we answer some e-mails and name several dirt sheets.

*There were 47 Mets in 2020 and this segment is over an hour, you can do the math.

Episode 241: "Editor/Flannel Doofus"

September 21st, 2020

In Episode 241 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett preview the 2020Jets season, lay the 2020 Mets to rest again, and review new PTBNL and old prospect lists. In the second half of the show, David Roth of Defector Media sums up 20 years of the Wilpon Mets in one Simpsons reference, and Jarrett goes deep into the annals of Mets ownership history. In the third half of the show we answer your correspondence and try to figure out what to do with the Mets corner bat logjam.

Episode

Episode 240: "They say if they had got the victory / Well, I guess we’ll never know"

September 14th, 2020

In Episode 240 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett have a nice short first half of the show planned out that gets derailed by a half hour on bullpen construction thoughts. We also have some more Mets Kremlinology, some breaking ownership news, and another Michael Conforto extension question to answer.

Episode

Episode 237: "Do you really want to be Craig?"

August 31st, 2020

In Episode 237 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett discuss the weirdest Mets Kremlinology yet, Steve Cohen closing in on ownership of the team, potential deadline moves, the current state of the Mets rotation, and well a whole lot of other stuff we’ve already forgotten after watching two dire Mets losses from record to post.

Episode

Episode 236: "I made the classic mistake of bringing up Sixto Sánchez"

August 24th, 2020

In Episode 236 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and (mostly) Jarrett chat about the Mets Covid issues, the latest in ownership rumors, the current state of the Mets rotation as we approach the trade deadline, and Jeffrey makes the classic mistake of bringing up Sixto Sánchez, turning what he thought would be like a 75-minute podcast into a…longer one.

Episode

Episode 235: "I’m gonna say what’s on my mind, then I’ll walk out, then I’ll feel fine"

August 17th, 2020

In Episode 235 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett survey the Mets pitching landscape after another bad week of Mets baseball. We also return to one of our favorite topics, Luis Guillorme, and one of our least favorite topics, the Mets 40-man management. Then in the third half of the show we spend too much time considering the BVW era and Jarrett successfully predicts the J.D. Davis defensive regression that occurred immediately after we finished recording. And we wrap things up with Miocic/Cormier III thoughts, and whatever the fuck is happening in the WWE.

Episode

Episode 234: "Sorry old man but that’s just the way that it is, don’t bother none"

August 10th, 2020

In Episode 234 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett lean into the meandering barroom conversation vibe in the first half of the show, touching on Michael Wacha’s injury, the Cardinals continuing Covid shutdown, Andres Gimenez, Jacob deGrom, before bringing back the Panic City Index. In the second half of the show Howard Megdal joins to break down the Mets ownership situation, and then we wrap things up with a third half of the show long enough to make Jarrett late for empanadas.

Episode

Episode 233: "One must imagine Sisyphus happy"

August 3rd, 2020

In Episode 233 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett consider what it means to be a Mets fans in the face of a cruel and irrational universe, not to mention petty and incompetent ownership. So we chat about a very long day for both the Metropolitan baseball club and team media strategy, review a week of baffling transactions and frustrating baseball, and even answer your Facebook questions. We even get a little philosophical as Jeffrey has way more bourbon than he has had in recent months.

Episode

Episode 232: "Back in the New York (Metsssss) Groove"

July 26th, 2020

In Episode 232 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett have two really real Mets games to examine and boy were they Metsy. We wax about how good Jacob deGrom looks, delve into that fastball from Edwin Diaz, and consider Andres Giménez’s role on the 2020 Mets. We also chat a bit about other baseball we’ve watched, note more warning signs that there probably shouldn’t be baseball, and put the kibosh on a potential Johnny Cueto trade.
