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. An unfortunately sad edition of Orange and Blue Thing.
Hosted by Darren Meenan (with guest co-host Tim Reilly 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.
Pete Alonso is LOCKED IN, and seems to have traded Donnie Stevenson for a dugout pony. Speaking of trades, the deadline is Friday. Who will the Mets land? SNY's Joe DeMayo checks in with the latest rumors. The Mets are inducting Matlack, Darling, and Alfonzo in to their HOF this weekend, but nobody seems to know about it. Word is the Mets are making changes to step up for their minor leaguers, Julia got pooped on by a bird while dog walking, Johnny Stranger took his love to the Long Island Expressway to win back Courtney, and more from T7LHQ with Darren and Julia.
