Listen: Last Night’s Podcast – the Apodcastalypse

Last night, Rising Apple writers Sam Maxwell and Dan Haefeli had a candid discussion on the current state of the Mets: the floundering offense, the poor bullpen performance, and the (at times) poorer decisions coming from the dugout. It was a spirited discussion that explored what moves the team could make and who has been and needs to perform to get the team back on the right track.

Interestingly enough, the players we primarily discussed (David Wright, Lucas Duda, Daniel Murphy, and Marlon Byrd) combined for all of the Mets’ offense, going 6-14 with a double, three home runs, and all five RBI as Dillon Gee cruised to his third straight victory.

Outside of that, we discussed the prospects of Terry Collins future – specifically the rumors and clamoring for Las Vegas 51′s manager Wally Backman – and the prospects of the future – Domonic Smith and the 2013 draft results. The draft class, as has been Sandy Alderson’s wont, was loaded with high-upside young talent as the team’s best-player-available focus led to largely positive reviews this year.

But enough about that, you can catch up on the podcast right here!
