Ep. 46 – Your Foot Stays on the Ground, Wilpon & Jeff Jahelka of SMS; Tonight at 6:30PM ET

By Sam Maxwell

The Rising Apple Report trucks onwards and upwards, presenting our 46th all-time episode! Rich Sparago will join me for all the latest news, rumors and speculation coming out of Metsville, USA.

Also joining the program is Jeff Jehelka, a Mets fan from Quogue, NY in Suffolk County and the host of a weekly podcast called The Saturday Morning Spectacular, where he and a co-host discuss different topics each week regarding the history of baseball. We will talk to Jeff about his Metsian roots and how he got into podcasting.

And there goes Jeff Wilpon again. First, Wilpon is quoted as saying “maybe something will be cooking later,” then Sandy Alderson is geniunely surprised to hear of this development. We will continue our ever-evolving discussion on whether Jeff Wilpon should just keep his mouth shut, or whether he and us fans are just victims of the new-age Hot Stove landscape.

With it being the 46th episode, we will discuss the “All-Time Greats” in Mets history to wear the #46, a lackluster list that includes Neil Allen, Jermaine Allensworth…and Oliver Perez (cue lightning and over-dramatic music!)

And of course, the most up-to-the-minute news from the rumor mill.

So, join us at 6:30PM ET for the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report!
