The Rising Apple Report Ep. 71: There are no off days in Flushing

By Michael Lecolant

Although the Mets are idle, we at Rising Apple does not believe in days off.  With much to discuss this evening, Sam Maxwell and I will co-host the 71st episode of the Rising Apple Report.

The Mets latest road trip has them heading to Philadelphia, where they will begin a short two game series on Tuesday.  Phillies season ticket holder Ted Matey will help us preview the series.  Once done in the City of Brotherly Love, the Flushing Nine will visit Colorado, then square off against the Marlins again in Miami.

The Amazin’s left home with a 14-11 record, and are looking to improve upon their 6-3 mark on the road. Their recent success is attributable to their entire pitching staff, as well as the defense that has cleaned up its act.  Travis d’Arnaud additionally appears to be coming around at the plate, but, because of Terry Collins‘ line-up changes, Lucas Duda has yet to settle into the clean-up role.

Joining Rising Apple tonight in their greater Mets musings will be John Pielli, author of Passed Ball Show.

Discussion of these topics, and many more Mets matters commences tonight at 9:00pm EST.  You can join in by calling 646-929-0337.
