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 announced that they're creating a tenured system for their season ticket holders, and a lot of fans are pretty upset about it. Even after this disappointing season, some prices are going up, while some special perks (like Opening Day tickets and postseason strips), are going away for select plans.
We're back from Minnesota after hanging an L on T7LA's calendar. An unnamed Mets staffer said to Darren in Starbucks after the game "hope you had a good time before we shit the bed". We're borrowing a segment from SNY's Off Day Live show and Joe DeMayo joins us. Plus, who snubbed Darren for a selfie at the airport?
Pete Alonso, who isn't toxic, hit his 40th and 41st home run of the season. Lindor, who doesn't get enough credit, hit his 25th home run and stole his 25th base. Ronnie Mauricio, who is finally in the Bigs, went 5-11 in his first series. We're hitting Minnesota this Saturday with 700 die hard Mets fans.
