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.
With 10 games left, everyone is just going through the motions at this point. The 7 Line Army's Boston outing was fun minus the game, Barnie the Bull is about to live a good life, dog poop tampons, Darren might have to be "Loyal Til The Last Tailgate", Pete Alonso is hosting a Home Run Derby event on Monday in Brooklyn for his Homers For Heroes charity, and a whole mash of other randomness.
Mr. Smile had his first breakout Mets game, an emotional 9/11 pre-game ceremony, The 7 Line Army being booed over the wave, we're heading back to Coney Island next summer, should the Mets sign Javier Baez this offseason, Pete Alonso shaved in the middle of the game, Boston pre-game plans, Once Upon A Time In Queens 30 for 30 drops this week, and a special round of Francisco Lindor themed BIG APPLE TRIVIA!
With just a few weeks left, the Mets are still not out of this thing. Do you believe they have a shot? The Yankees are coming to Citi Field this weekend, and for the first time in a while, both teams have postseason hopes on the line during the Subway Series. The 7 Line Army Holiday Party is almost a go, Pete Alonso broke the 100 homers mark, and everyone will know your name in Boston with T7LA.
