You can email us questions, comments, and beer recs at podcast@barleyprose.com.

After a little noisy check-in with Michael from Citi Field, Jason, Jake and Chris discuss all manner of happy Mets stuff, from cats, to pools, to why Chip Ambres won’t return Chris’ calls.

They also discuss Dominic Smith’s demotion, the lingering injuries of some various Mets players, and try to find something to be grumpy about.

Here are some shots of the Citi Field scoreboard Michael was talking about.

Mark Canha’s instagram is awash with great food photos.

Which other mascots have families? I remember a “Billy the Kid” Marlin kid, but I can’t seem to find him, but it does appear that Mr. Redlegs has a wife named Rosie and dog named Gapper.

I also stumbled upon Francisco Lindor lightsaber dueling the Astro’s mascot Orbit, so obviously gotta share that.
