    In Episode 303 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett hope you have a long commute. In the first half of the show, we discuss another (at least final) week of Mets baseball and all the "fun" stories around a grumpy Mets ace and a ponderous executive search. In the second half of the show we do our traditional roster wrap up. It's, uh, a very large roster this year. And in the third half of the show we answer your correspondence and try to keep up with the goings on in Game 162.
