OABT S2 E29: See Yo Later, Noah has a disease, Familia is gone, and more
What a week. Darren Meenan and guest co-host Tim Reilly chat about the latest sad state of affairs in Mets land. Jeurys Familia has been traded, Yoenis Cespedes is having season ending surgery, Noah Syndergaard has hand, foot and mouth disease, Michael Conforto hits home runs whenever The 7 Line Army is there, live calls, and more.
Part time T7L blogger and our go to trade deadline guy, Joe DeMayo calls in to give us his 2 cents on the latest rumblings around the Mets. Who's gonna be next out the door? He's thinking Wilmer Flores, Zack Wheeler, and Asdrubal Cabera are goners. Who else?
Hosted by Darren Meenan, our episodes are usually taped live each Thursday at 6pm Eastern (it occasionally varies). We're a pretty visual show, so if you can, try to catch the live stream (or replay) on Facebook or Twitter. For now give a listen and if you're in to it, share with your friends, subscribe and leave a review.
An "Orange and Blue Thing" is something that Mets fans can relate to, so that's what we talk about. The comments section during the live stream turns in to a chat room, and the fan engagement is cool to see.
This might also be curtains for OABT. It's been a fun 7 years, but this might very well be the final episode. We've had a lot of laughs along the way and we thank you for joining us each week. With that, we chat about our favorite moments running this show, and look to a few important things coming up for Mets fans.
The Mets announced that they're creating a tenured system for their season ticket holders, and a lot of fans are pretty upset about it. Even after this disappointing season, some prices are going up, while some special perks (like Opening Day tickets and postseason strips), are going away for select plans.
We're back from Minnesota after hanging an L on T7LA's calendar. An unnamed Mets staffer said to Darren in Starbucks after the game "hope you had a good time before we shit the bed". We're borrowing a segment from SNY's Off Day Live show and Joe DeMayo joins us. Plus, who snubbed Darren for a selfie at the airport?
