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.
We close out the year with a special live show in Patchogue at The Cliffton Bar. Gregg Giannotti from WFAN pops on, Lizy and Darren recap some highlights from the year, we gave fans the chance to send thank you messages to David Wright, give away some free stuff, a look towards 2019, and a champagne toast for The Captain.
Recapping The 7 Line Army's epic trip to Boston, the Red Sox owner John Henry came over to meet Darren at the outing, the Mets are moving from WOR to WCBS next season, we check in with WOR's Pete McCarthy about the current state of the team, toss out a hypothetical David Wright HR question, two jabroni's stole a banner from the Red Sox, live calls, free stuff, and more.
David Wright will suit up and start one last game for the Mets on Saturday September 29th at Citi Field. The somber news just broke and we discuss the latest from his press conference, take live calls from grieving fans, and talk about the Captains career.
