OABT S2 E36: "Pour one out for the Captain" David Wright will play one more game for the Mets
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!
CATCH THE SHOW THURSDAY NIGHTS AT 6PM (SOMETIMES AT 1PM) EASTERN ON FB LIVE OR PERISCOPE!
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 boys are hanging on with just 10 left to play in the regular season. Every game is huge down the stretch, and at this point you can throw a MUST WIN stamp on all of them. This week in baseball with Pete McCarthy and Darren Meenan live from T7LHQ.
The boys are closing in on the second wild card spot, but with under 20 games left to play they're up against the clock. The Mets again can't wear first responder caps during the game on 9/11, but Pete Alonso gifted all his teammates custom cleats to honor the day, and more from this week in Mets baseball.
