Jake Brown and Nelson Figueroa open Season 2 of the podcast talking about what the Mets did in the offseason. They get into missing out on signing George Springer and Trevor Bauer, the bullpen being a question mark, the starting pitching being a strength and some defensive concerns. It’s then time for the debut of the “Nelson Figueroa Spanish Academy,” where Figgie teaches Jake how to say “spring training” and “good morning, my neighbors” in Spanish. Mets legend and 1986 World Series champion outfielder Mookie Wilson then joins the show. Wilson talks about his stepson Preston Wilson being traded for Mike Piazza and the strange way he learned of the deal, the bond he had built with Bill Buckner, the ground ball in Game 6, his gospel album and being an ordained minister, coaching, the ’86 Mets, Lenny Dykstra as a teammate and his thoughts on Brandon Nimmo.
