OABT S2 E31: A final farewell to Harvey, deGrom finally won a game, Live calls, Mets talk and more
Jacob deGrom finally notched a W, Matt Harvey was back in Queens and we asked some fans for their reactions, Ed Kranepool tossed out the first pitch on Monday, Josh Lewin is battling depression/anxiety and launched a new website, it ends up the Reds bullpen are great sports, The 7 Line Army is about to roll through Miami, Darren invites Jeff Wilpon to come on the show, and we take a bunch of live calls.
Hosted by Darren Meenan (with guest co-host Tim Reilly this week) , our episodes are usually taped live each Thursday at 6pm Eastern (it occasionally varies, next week will be 1pm EDT). 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.
Shout out to our beer sponsor OYSTER BAY BREWING COMPANY! Nothing better than supporting a local business, and cracking open a cold one over some baseball. Check them out at http://oysterbaybrewing.com/ and hit up their brewery during any Mets game for $5 pints when you mention OABT. Also, get $1 off pints anytime by mentioning the show as well. CHEERS!
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.
The Mets director for SNY, John DeMarsico joins the show to give us a look behind the curtain on the game broadcasts. There's a new "Speakeasy" opening at Citi Field, but odds are you won't ever watch a game from there. We found out about a much less expensive alternative to the new $40 parking at Citi Field.
The WBC is in full swing, but do you care? A lot do, but the majority of baseball fans don't. Nimmo and Scherzer both explain why they're not representing for team USA. Unfortunately it's going to be more expensive to tailgate this season at Citi Field.
The new scoreboard is nearly complete at Citi Field, further proving that Steve Cohen can pretty much get whatever he wants. Funds are no object for the new F U Money Mets. Buck held a closed door team building Talent Show down at camp. What hidden talents might Julia and Darren have?
