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 9: "Big Spur, Little Spur"

July 4th, 2016

In Episode 9 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett tackle the most prominent issue in Metsland: that ridiculous Cespedes third tank home run. Okay, it’s all downhill from there, but man that was a lot of fun. We discuss balky elbows, the wild card race, and soft selling before welcoming on Kate Morrison and Russell Carlton to talk about major league front offices and Saving America’s Pastime. Then we revisit potential Mets All-Stars, investigate the curious case of Seth Lugo, get way off topic with a look at recent goings-on in the NYC baseball media, and wrap things up talking Nick Williams and false hustle. 



Episode 8: "This is fine dot jpeg"

June 26th, 2016

It feels like it has been weeks since our last episode, so there is a lot of ground to cover in Episode 8. We start with a discussion of new Met, Jose Reyes, before moving on to happier topics, like the Mets plethora of arm issues. We also talk about Michael Conforto being optioned for Brandon Nimmo before delving in deeper on Reyes with Sports Illustrated’s Emma Span. Then it is time for your e-mails, some well-earned praise for Hansel Robles, a long digression on the 2016 Brooklyn Cyclones, and finally some pro wrestling and PED chat. 


Episode 7: "And we’re waiting here in Allentown"

June 19th, 2016

Saturday is usually the day Jeffrey and Jarrett make their notes for the show. Instead, they recorded in a hotel room in Bethlehem, PA between games in a split International League doubleheader. On the plus side, this is the shortest episode yet, on the minus side, it is still as disorganized and bogged down in pro wrestling talk as usual. In the first half of the show we discuss Noah Syndergaard’s continued maturation into an ace generally, and his usage in the Pirates game specifically. We then chat about Travis d’Arnaud’s short term future with the Mets, and go in-depth on Jarrett’s BP Mets article last week on Jacob deGrom. Next, the BP Mets big boss Bryan Grosnick joins the show to talk David Wright and potential future third basemen for the Metropolitans. Finally we wrap things up with two(!) lists (one David Wright, one pro wrestling), and kibitz about Triple-A baseball.


Episode 6: "New draft, who dis?"

June 13th, 2016

Jeffrey and Jarrett talk the Mets floundering offense, curious closer, recent draft with Alex Nelson of Amazin’ Avenue, and then Jarrett talks about Japanese Pro Wrestling for the last twenty minutes until even Jeffrey completely checks out of the show.


Episode 5: "We are just, we are just, we are just teens of style"

June 6th, 2016

In Episode 5 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett debate the Mets infield alignment, check in on This Week in Matt Harvey, talk Mets prospects past, present, and future with Toby Hyde, and spend way too much time on Gilmore Girls and the UFC. This is probably an overly pithy summary of another three hour podcast, but it is getting late.


Episode 4: "Too Many Kates (Too Many Kates)"

May 30th, 2016

In Episode 4 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett had their agenda thrown into disarray with the Mets acquisition of James Loney. So we bring on Kate Feldman, Tampa Bay Rays expert, to discuss the new first baseman, and some old first baseman as well. We also chat about Matt Harvey, again, and tanking baseball teams. Next, Kate Morrison of BP and WFAA joins the show to talk about the new Texas stadium and their bumper crop of prospects. Finally we wrap things up with Jeffrey’s five favorite Mets, Jarrett’s five favorite pitches, and some babbling about Chase Utley and pro wrestling before our skype connection mercifully cuts out.


Episode 3: "The Court of Owls"

May 22nd, 2016

In Episode 3 of For All You Kids Out There, the BP Mets podcast, Jeffrey and Jarrett have a reasonable, sobering (but not sober) discussion about what ails Matt Harvey. Is it just a matter of physician, heal thyself, or does he need an, uh, actual physician. Fortunately the Mets bullpen has been good even as the starting pitching has underperformed a bit, but Jeffrey isn’t convinced this is going to last. Next, we chat with Erik Malinowski about recent Bartolo Colon news and recent David Wright walkoffs, Finally we wrap things up with your missives and a long discussion about David Ortiz and the Hall of Fame, because Jeffrey stupidly got Jarrett wound up about Mike Mussina.


Episode 2: "Half-way Between Misery and the Sun"

May 18th, 2016

Normally 33% shorter wouldn’t be a selling point, but when your first episode was three hours, it might be? In Episode 2, Jarrett and Jeffrey discuss how much to read into a bad road trip, how much Noah Syndergaard makes it move, and how much Eric Campbell we’ll be seeing in the coming weeks. Next Corinne Landrey of Crashburn Alley and The Hardball Times joins the show to talk about the second place (?!) Phillies and if any of this is remotely sustainable. Then we answer your e-mails and introduce a fun game called “How Well Do You Know Your Co-host” before wrapping up with the likely soon to be de riguer wrestling and soccer talk.


Episode 1: "What Kind of Month Has It Been"

May 8th, 2016

It’s the first episode of For All You Kids Out There, a baseball podcast from BP Mets. Hosts Jeffrey Paternostro and Jarrett Seidler talk about the first month of Mets baseball. Jarrett breaks down Noah Syndergaard, Jeffrey yells about dingers, David Roth of Vice Sports joins the show to talk about Bartolo, and much, much, (too much) more.
