For All You Kids Out There

In May 2016, Jeffrey Paternostro and Jarrett Seidler recorded a three-hour, rambling podcast about the first month of Mets baseball and an improbable Bartolo Colon home run. Thus, For All You Kids Out There, an overly intellectual, late night cocktail lounge conversation between two lifelong Mets fans was born. With thirteen years of prospect writing (and sixty years of pulling out hair out watching Mets baseball) combined, we cover everything from the low minors to the majors, trades and free agent signings, and other assorted weird Metropolitan ephemera.

Episode 242: "Yeah, I guess the end is here"

September 28th, 2020

In Episode 242 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett spend the first half of the show on our end-of-season podcast tradition, spending 30 seconds* on each 2020 Met. Then in the second half of the show we chat about what Sandy Alderson as Team President might bring in the near future to Queens baseball. Finally in the third half of the show we answer some e-mails and name several dirt sheets.

*There were 47 Mets in 2020 and this segment is over an hour, you can do the math.

September 14th, 2020

In Episode 240 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett have a nice short first half of the show planned out that gets derailed by a half hour on bullpen construction thoughts. We also have some more Mets Kremlinology, some breaking ownership news, and another Michael Conforto extension question to answer.

Episode 237: "Do you really want to be Craig?"

August 31st, 2020

In Episode 237 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett discuss the weirdest Mets Kremlinology yet, Steve Cohen closing in on ownership of the team, potential deadline moves, the current state of the Mets rotation, and well a whole lot of other stuff we’ve already forgotten after watching two dire Mets losses from record to post.

Episode 236: "I made the classic mistake of bringing up Sixto Sánchez"

August 24th, 2020

In Episode 236 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and (mostly) Jarrett chat about the Mets Covid issues, the latest in ownership rumors, the current state of the Mets rotation as we approach the trade deadline, and Jeffrey makes the classic mistake of bringing up Sixto Sánchez, turning what he thought would be like a 75-minute podcast into a…longer one.

Episode

Episode 235: "I’m gonna say what’s on my mind, then I’ll walk out, then I’ll feel fine"

August 17th, 2020

In Episode 235 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett survey the Mets pitching landscape after another bad week of Mets baseball. We also return to one of our favorite topics, Luis Guillorme, and one of our least favorite topics, the Mets 40-man management. Then in the third half of the show we spend too much time considering the BVW era and Jarrett successfully predicts the J.D. Davis defensive regression that occurred immediately after we finished recording. And we wrap things up with Miocic/Cormier III thoughts, and whatever the fuck is happening in the WWE.

August 10th, 2020

In Episode 234 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett lean into the meandering barroom conversation vibe in the first half of the show, touching on Michael Wacha’s injury, the Cardinals continuing Covid shutdown, Andres Gimenez, Jacob deGrom, before bringing back the Panic City Index. In the second half of the show Howard Megdal joins to break down the Mets ownership situation, and then we wrap things up with a third half of the show long enough to make Jarrett late for empanadas.

Episode

Episode 233: "One must imagine Sisyphus happy"

August 3rd, 2020

In Episode 233 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett consider what it means to be a Mets fans in the face of a cruel and irrational universe, not to mention petty and incompetent ownership. So we chat about a very long day for both the Metropolitan baseball club and team media strategy, review a week of baffling transactions and frustrating baseball, and even answer your Facebook questions. We even get a little philosophical as Jeffrey has way more bourbon than he has had in recent months.

Episode 232: "Back in the New York (Metsssss) Groove"

July 26th, 2020

In Episode 232 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett have two really real Mets games to examine and boy were they Metsy. We wax about how good Jacob deGrom looks, delve into that fastball from Edwin Diaz, and consider Andres Giménez’s role on the 2020 Mets. We also chat a bit about other baseball we’ve watched, note more warning signs that there probably shouldn’t be baseball, and put the kibosh on a potential Johnny Cueto trade.

Episode

Episode 231: "My resistance is crushed / I’m just here about some tangerines"

July 18th, 2020

In Episode 231 of For All You Kids Out There, we are hurtling towards actual Mets baseball in 2020, so naturally it was time to have David Roth on to talk mostly about Ty Bashlor.

Episode

Episode 230: "It’s a show about nothing"

July 12th, 2020

In Episode 230, Jeffrey and Jarrett are in midseason form as it takes eleven minutes to introduce the show, and neither of us have any idea how the first half is over an hour, or what we even talked about. We suspect there is a fair bit on the latest Mets ownership news, how the Mets are handling “absences” from Summer Camp, and some Jacob Rhame chat. We also take a wider look at the baseball landscape and whether the season should happen (Spoiler Alert: Still no). In the third half of the show we cover Fyter Fest, the New Japan Cup and Dominion, and Remember Some 90s Puroresu Guys.

Episode 229: "This is Craig"

July 5th, 2020

In Episode 229 of For All You Kids Out There, Craig and Jarrett discuss the Mets almost-60-man roster, some new pool players, and what that might all mean for Johneshwy Fargas. There’s also chat about intake testing, if baseball really knows what they are doing w/r/t the health of the players, and the first round of opt-outs from some big veteran names. Then Craig answers all your non-Rays, non-wrestling questions in the third half of the show.

Episode 228: "Welp"

June 24th, 2020

There’s going to be a baseball season. Well, they’re going to try and play a baseball season.
