S2 E7: SNY’s Steve Gelbsy joins the boys. Mets talk and more.
Mets camp is about to be in full swing, so the boys welcome in SNY's Steve Gelbs to get a firsthand account of the feel of Mickey Callaway's first managerial Spring Training. Plus, Darren and Brian ask Steve about what made him want to break into the broadcasting business, what stood out the most from the 2015 pennant run, and how many games he envisions this team winning in 2018. All that, and live calls, voicemails, and everything from the last week in Mets land. Grab a chair and lend an ear to another episode of Orange and Blue Thing.
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 FB Live turns in to a live chat room, and the fan engagement is cool to see.
Co-hosted by Darren Meenan and Brian Erni, our episodes are taped live each Thursday at 6pm Eastern. We're a pretty visual show, and give away prizes each week to live viewers. If you can, try to catch the live stream on Facebook.com/The7Line.

This might also be curtains for OABT. It's been a fun 7 years, but this might very well be the final episode. We've had a lot of laughs along the way and we thank you for joining us each week. With that, we chat about our favorite moments running this show, and look to a few important things coming up for Mets fans.
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?
