Connor Rogers and Joe DeMayo clinch Episode 25 of The Mets Pod, in honor of the Mets clinching a postseason spot for the first time since 2016. The guys look back at a muted but special night in Milwaukee, as the Mets punched their ticket to the 2022 playoffs by clinching at least a wild card berth, with their sights now set on bigger goals ahead. Connor and Joe look back at the team’s celebration, six perfect innings from Max Scherzer, unsung heroes of the season so far, and then debate who they would pick to start Game 1 of the first playoff series. Later in the show, the guys discuss the return of Tylor Megill, what the bullpen will look like moving forward, and bold predictions for the regular season stretch run. The guys wrap the episode with the Mailbag, featuring questions about the Mets postseason roster, and how this year’s team compares to the 2015 edition.
