Rising Apple Report, Ep. 56: Pitchers & Catchers in 18, 17, 16…

By Sam Maxwell

The Rising Apple Report returns for its 56th episode!  I’ll be in the hosting chair once again this week, with Rich Sparago joining me from the Rising Apple writing team!

Also joining us this week is a man who is becoming a regular here and a podcast veteran in his own right, Mr. Gary Mack of Mets Musings!

Well, there are 17 days till pitchers and catchers, and that is lovely to write. The Mets could still add some talent when all is said and done, though Stephen Drew is becoming more “unlikely” according to Sandy Alderson. Reliever Fernando Rodney, however, remains on the Mets radar. We’ll discuss the options they have left and what direction we would like them to go.

Also, Keith Law of ESPN has 5 Mets crack his 100 top prospects list. We’ll discuss the players, and how far the farm system has come in the last few years.

And of course, we’ll discuss the greats to wear number 56 in Mets history.

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