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.
Pete Alonso continues to impress, Chase Utley still sucks, SNY's Andy Martino still has some of the coldest takes in NY, the Mets split the Subway Series double header, Lion's Head Tavern is awesome, Pete doesn't believe in aliens, The 7 Line Army's 100th outing is just a couple weeks away, a couple live calls, and more from this week in Mets baseball.
Jason Vargas pulled off the surprise of the season with the most unlikely complete game 5 hit shutout, Pete Alonso keeps mashing baseballs, Todd Frazier is heating up, Jeff "McHits" McNeil is back from the IL, Robinson Cano is still hurt, Mickey Callaway continues to make questionable decisions, and more.
The Mets have been teetering around the .500 mark with 2/3 of the season left to play, Pete Alonso is hitting bombs at a record pace and has become a leader of the Mets, Noah Syndergaard can't find consistency, Edwin Diaz has the "worst day" of his career out in LA, The 7 Line bought a mobile merch truck, and more.
