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.
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.
