OABT S2 E33: McNeil is for real, Reyes claps back, the 2019 Mets schedule is out, live calls and more
The 2019 Mets schedule was released and we already picked The 7 Line Army's road games, our Boston pre-game is now set for next month, we're planning a big post party after the last game of the year in Flushing, give away some fee stuff, take live calls, and more.
Joe DeMayo also checks in to talk Jeff McNeil, Jose Reyes, David Wright, and Peter Alonso.
Hosted by Darren Meenan (with guest co-host Lizy Saroyan this week) , our episodes are taped live each Thursday on FB and Periscope. 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 baseball season is 11 days old, and the Mets have only played 5 games. The start has been rough, and some fans are restless. Take a chill pill, there's a ridiculous amount of baseball left. The boys will be just fine.
The man himself, Mike Piazza joins the show! His feelings about the season, relationship with Steve Cohen, coaching with team Italy, his new True Vodka Piazza 31 Club at Citi Field, Mets Old Timers Day, the boy band BTS, blonde hair don't care, being on Baywatch with Pamela Anderson, NYC Italian food recommendations, and more.
Chicken parm and raviolis! Are the Mets about to land their three hundred million dollar man? Steve Cohen keeps tweeting about it, so it seems likely. A special Mike Piazza announcement. A cap tip to OG Mets superfan Bo Field and more.
