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.

In Episode 270 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Thomas review Dom Smith’s Premiere League fandom and the early spring training games, before chatting about the 2021 Mets rotation with Baseball Prospectus’s Lucas Apostoleris. We also answer your correspondence, making some over/under bets and considering the Mets defense before wrapping things up with an AEW Revolution review. It’s like Jarrett never even left (he’ll be back next week).

March 1st, 2021

Then in the third half of the show we mostly preview AEW Revolution.

February 21st, 2021

February 14th, 2021

In Episode 266 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett look forward to the 2021 Mets season, such as it is. Who should replace Seth Lugo? (see title) Who will be the third basemen? Will they get into a bidding war for another pitcher? Does any of this matter since PECOTA thinks they are winning the division by ten games? Then in the third half of the show Jeffrey tries out a new cocktail while we answer your correspondence and discuss the 2020 Daves.


Episode 265: "What good can drinkin’ do?"

February 8th, 2021

February 1st, 2021

January 19th, 2021

In Episode 262 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett chat about the new Jets coach, the new Mets coaches, a Jose Martinez signing, and otherwise meander about through the first half. In the second half of the show we welcome on Randy Wilkins from Views from 314 ft to chat about the Yankees, the Rockies(?), and Manchester United. Then in the third half of the show we answer some correspondence and one of us complains about Newcastle.


Episode 261: "No, I never wanted to change the world, but I’m looking for a new New Jersey"

January 11th, 2021

In Episode 261, Jeffrey and Jarrett really shouldn’t have much more to talk about. The news of the week has been sufficiently covered. One would think. There’s Mets Prospect List chat, sure. Then in the second half of the show we are joined by Michael Baumann of the Ringer to talk Hulk Hogan’s restaurant, New Jersey geography, Phillies Twitter, and probably some former South Carolina outfielders. Finally there’s correspondence about the Mets depth and Jacob deGrom’s fastball. So as it turns out there was a lot to talk about.

December 22nd, 2020

In Episode 257 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett discuss various press conferences, available Reds starting pitchers, and former Mets players in new spots. In the second half of the show we are joined by Andrew Koo from the BP stats team to chat about what a modern analytics department does, the public/private gap on prospects, and what the Mets first steps should be to build out their baseball operations. Then in the third half of the show we have some very long emails.


Episode 256: "Listen for the prophecy somewhere in the static"

December 13th, 2020
