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 254: "Lindor Avenue Audio"

November 30th, 2020

In Episode 254 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey is unable to steer Jarrett away from talking about football, and Jets football at that, for the first bit. Eventually we get onto Sandy’s press conference (yes that was only last week) and what to do about the front office. We also talk non-tenders and the mess that is minor league realignment. Then in the third half of the show, we answer your e-mails…about Francisco Lindor…and well…

Episode 253: "It’s Mets-adjacent, it counts"

November 22nd, 2020

In Episode 253 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett discuss the newest free agent Met, the fact that there are no new 40-man Mets, and even do an off the cuff Rule 5 draft preview. Then in the second half of the show, we chat with David Roth about Chris Flexen, bars at Citi Field, Steve Cohen’s posting energy, and the other Wilpon brother. Finally in the third half of the show we remember we were supposed to talk about the current front office search and get into politics instead of pro wrestling.

Episode

Episode 251: "Part three of three"

November 16th, 2020

In Episode 251 of For All You Kids Out There, the Mets stopped making news after our two midweek episodes, so you can just consider them an extended first half of the show. We do add some thoughts on Chris Flexen, Kim Ng, the Marlins Roster Resource page, and George Springer. Then we answer your questions on Mets Kremlinology (one last time?) and a potential Michael Conforto extension (definitely not the last time).

Episode 248: "Came all this way for hunger / May I be worthy of my reward"

November 9th, 2020

In Episode 248 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett have a very, very busy news week to cover. Off the top of one of our heads, well Harol Gonzalez has re-upped with the Mets as a MiLBFA. Oh, also Steve Cohen officially owns the team and has cleaned house in Player Dev and Analytics. We have thoughts. Minor League Baseball is changing a lot too. We have more thoughts. In the third half of the show, Jeffrey is finally Getting into Knives, and we have correspondence and a contentious AEW PPV review.

Episode

Episode 247: "That might be the subject of a new story, but our present story is ended"

November 2nd, 2020

In Episode 247 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett discuss the final approval of Steve Cohen, new Mets owner, and his forays into Mets Twitter. We also look ahead to what sure looks like a slow offseason (although perhaps not for the Mets). In the second half of the show we have some final playoffs thoughts. And in the third half of the show we answer a question about the future of LOLMets and preview AEW Full Gear.

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

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

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

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

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

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.
