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.
