Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin' Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. D.J. Dozier was a three sport star in high school, excelling in baseball as well as football and basketball. While he was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the 18th round out of high school, his future seemed to lie in football, as Dozier accepted a scholarship to—and starred at running back for—Penn State. Dozier won a National Championship in college and was a first round draft pick in the NFL for the Minnesota Vikings, But he never quite abandoned his interest in baseball. He would sign a free agent contract with the Mets and work his way up through the minors in 1990-91—while continuing his football career over the winter. In 1992, Dozier would make it to the majors with the Mets for 47 at bats, making him one of the rare athletes to play in two professional sport leagues.

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin' Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. Kenny Greer is a member of a somewhat exclusive club—one of the few players involved in a rare trade between the Mets and Yankees. The career minor leaguer toiled for six years in the Yankees organization before coming to the Mets for Frank Tanana in an also rare September trade in 1993. Thanks to a confluence of expanded September rosters and an incredibly long 17 inning game, Greer got an opportunity to make his MLB debut—and throw one of his 13 career MLB innings—as a New York Met, hurling a perfect 17th inning and recording a win—his only career victory, and one of only 59 in a painful 1993 season for the Mets.

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin' Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. The Mets signed Kevin Collins as a 17 year old in 1964. The infielder was rushed to the majors due to combination of baseball's pre-draft era waiver rules and the young team's many needs, and injuries and a lack of proper development time would soon stunt any opportunity for Collins to flourish. Passed on the organizational depth chart by other youngsters such as Bud Harrelson, Collins transitioned to a role as a utility infielder. After missing out on an opportunity to claim a platoon role at third base in early 1969, the still young infielder would soon miss out on experiencing the Miracle Mets' run, as he became a key component in the trade that brought eventual 1969 World Series MVP Donn Clendenon to New York.

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin' Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. The Mets drafted Mike Scott in the second round of the 1976 draft, hoping the hard-throwing right-hander would develop into a future pitching star. Unfortunately, Scott never developed a secondary pitch and his Mets career would fizzle out. After some mixed success in his first couple of years in Houston, Scott would learn how to throw the split-fingered fastball from Roger Craig. With this new pitch—or perhaps some illegal doctoring of the ball—Scott would find sudden and massive success. And would make himself the biggest potential obstacle in his former team's dramatic and treacherous path to the 1986 World Championship.

In his media availability yesterday, Sandy Alderson characterized all of the “unbecoming” behavior on the part of Mets front office personnel as “unrelated” incidents, not necessarily indicative of a single flaw in the Mets' hiring process. We discuss the wrongheadedness of this characterization and the fact that even when Alderson knew about bad behavior on the part of his employees in the past, he chose not to act. We also talk about Alderson's update on Jacob deGrom's injury, in which apparently deGrom's elbow magically healed itself! In our baseball segment this week, we talk about speculation around the industry that Trevor Bauer will be suspended for “at least one year” by the league under its domestic violence policy, which would at least match the longest suspension ever handed down under the policy. We also discuss an ill-advised tweet on the part of former MLB (and Mets) reliever Kyle Farnsworth about Trey Mancini and how it reflects the toxic masculinity ubiquitous in the game.

Welcome to Amazin' Avenue Audio (The Show), the new/old favorite from Amazin' Avenue editors Chris McShane and Brian Salvatore. When Brian and Chris last podcasted, things looked incredibly different for the Mets than they did when they recorded on Wednesday night. After a four-game winning streak (three if you're being pedantic and don't consider the suspended game victory as part of the win streak), the Mets looked poised to capitalize on a big win. The ‘thumbs' scandal was behind them, and despite a rainout, things looked sunnier than they have in weeks. And then, Interim General Manager Zack Scott was arrested for a DUI early on Wednesday morning, and the reality of the Mets' management situation came back into clear display.

Welcome back to A Pod of Their Own, a show by the women of Amazin' Avenue where we talk all things Mets, social justice issues in baseball, and normalize female voices in the sports podcasting space.  This week, we begin by discussing the Mets' “thumbs down” gesture and the ensuing media circus and what it says about the relationship between players and fans. Next, we tell our Mets origin stories—how we all became Mets fans, how we started at Amazin' Avenue, and the story of how the podcast was born.  Then, we answer questions from our listeners about the future of the Mets, our ideal Citi Field experience, favorite away ballparks, and more. Finally, we launch #Dollars4Dingers2021! Our in-person #Dollars4Dingers raffle event will be on September 25th at 5:00pm at Katch in Astoria, Queens. We hope to see you all there! In the meantime, we will be raising money to benefit the National Domestic Violence Hotline for every Mets home run hit from September 3 through the end of the season on October 3.

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin' Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. Randy Milligan spent parts of seven seasons working his way up through the Mets minor league system. Buried on the depth chart behind the powerful, star-studded 1980s Mets, Milligan had an MVP season in AAA Tidewater and was a personal favorite of a very young Norfolk child named David Wright. Milligan would go on to have a solid and unappreciated MLB career, toiling mostly for some poor teams and flashing one particular skill—an incredible batting eye—that wasn't quite as appreciated in the pre-Moneyball era. Milligan would make his most important contribution to the Mets' organization after his playing days were over, as his path would intersect again with Wright when Milligan became the scout to help sign Wright for the Mets.

Jack Fisher had already established a reputation as a workhorse before the Mets acquired him in a special draft for the recent expansion teams prior to the 1964 season. His tenure in Baltimore was solid, even if he is primarily remembered there for surrendering historic home runs to Ted Williams and Roger Maris. With the Mets, Fisher would make 133 starts over four seasons—most notably taking the hill and throwing the first pitch in Shea Stadium history.

Davis' return from the injured list, Francisco Lindor's injury, the acquisition of Rich Hill, and the need for still more pitching help.  Next, we talk about the Mets' needs ahead of the trade deadline and potential trade targets.  We also discuss Simone Biles dropping out of the team gymnastics competition at the Olympics and how it harkens back to discussions we've had previously on the podcast about the importance of mental health and recognizing the humanity of athletes. Finally, we wrap things up with Walk-off Wins, where each of us talks about what's making us happy this week, baseball-related or otherwise.  In this week's Walk-off Win, Allison shouted out an amazing artist named Elise Dodoles, who received a grant from the Russell J. Efros foundation to paint a series of paintings of women playing baseball.

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin' Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. The 1988 Mets seemed poised to cruise into their second World Series in three seasons and a glamorous matchup with the Oakland A's. That was before they ran into the force that was Orel Hershiser that season. The Cy Young winner battled through a lengthy recovery from labrum surgery in the early 1990s to remain a viable major league pitcher. He was a solid veteran presence for a Cleveland team that won two American League pennants in three seasons before coming to the team he once denied to try to do the same in 1999. In the twilight of his career, Hershiser nevertheless lived up to his Bulldog nickname, battling and having some memorable moments in his sole Mets season—winning his 200th game, donning the ill-fated uniform of the Mercury Mets, and providing crucial innings in the Grand Slam Single game.

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin' Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. With the 2021 MLB Draft in the rearview mirror, we take a look back to June 1984, when the resurgent Mets were in first place—and held the first overall pick in the draft. The team would use that pick on Shawn Abner, a “can't miss” high school outfielder the team envisioned in a future outfield with Darryl Strawberry. As the organization quickly transitioned from rebuilding to contending to World Champions, the prospect quickly became trade fodder, as the team packaged him to acquire Kevin McReynolds. Abner would struggle in the majors; ultimately ending his career back in the minors with the Mets' organization.
