The New York Mets continue trudging on 1 step forward, 2 steps back. Since we last met on the Rising Apple Report, they impressively split a series at home with the Mighty Oakland A’s, but then lost 3 of 4 in Pittsburgh and got swept out of Atlanta.

Everything that has been successful and plagued the team has been front and center over this last miserable stretch (other than Curtis Granderson), and one can only look at the youth and the farm system to have the feeling it is always darkest before the dawn, as the clichè goes.
Rich Sparago will host with myself lending plenty of support on this “day game” edition of the podcast. We’l talk about all the happenings in the current Metsian world, as well as the life and death of Frank Cashen, while comparing and contrasting the two eras.
So, join us at 2pm ET for the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report!
