Ep 35: Hurricane Harvey, live calls, David Wright shut down and more Mets talk
Hurricane Harvey put a damper on the group's plans to get to Minute Maid Park, but the guys are sending their love to the city of Houston, and filling everyone in on how you can help the relief efforts. Plus, Darren and Brian break down the last week in Mets land, gear up for Labor Day, and take all your calls. Crack some cold ones and ease into the weekend with the boys.
OABT is co-hosted by Darren Meenan and Brian Erni and we're a pretty visual show. Try to catch the live episode next week at 6pm on Facebook.com/The7Line. An "Orange and Blue Thing" is something that Mets fans can relate to, so that's what we talk about. The comments section turns in to a live chat room, and the fan engagement is super cool to see. Join us next week.
We also post the audio after the live broadcast, so if you're more of a listener, check us out on iTunes. Subscribe to the podcastHEREand make sure to leave a review. 5 stars if you think we're worth it.
This Mets legend is just a couple years removed from the ball field. He leads the team all time offensively in numerous categories, should have his number retired soon enough, and has a book titled The Captain about to drop on October 13th. He's our friend, and yours. The one, the only, number 5, and soon to be father of 3, David Wright.
The Mets are in the home stretch, and with these wacky MLB postseason rules for 2020, the boys still aren't out of it. Jacob deGrom's Cy Young 3 peat might be in jeopardy. The Mets were granted permission to wear the first responders caps on 9/11, but was is for genuine reasons? The 2021 Spring Training schedule is already out. Steve Cohen is inches away from owning the team, and more. Mets talk mixed in with the usual randomness you'd expect from Julia Quadrino and Darren Meenan.
It looks like the ink is about to dry on Steve Cohen's deal to purchase the Mets. Conforto is having a career year, and somehow still gets hate. Gsellman broke a rib while pitching. Darren wants to pay the Mets to let him work at Citi Field, and more from this week in Mets baseball.
