If you like a structured format, this is not the week for you. Pete McCarthy and Darren Meenan catch up on all the latest with the Mets and sprinkle in a ton of randomness. Brooklyn Councilman Justin Brannan is mad at the weather and how MLB handles rain delays, Michael Conforto has a concussion, Seinfeld night is coming to Citi Field and Jerry will be in the house, Jeff McNeil is battling some abdominal pain, you can't bring backpacks to Citi Field anymore, competitive eating is awesome, and much more. Off the rails on this one. Always fun. OFF TO MIAMI!

For now check out the replay. If you're feeling it, share with your friends, subscribe to the podcast, and rate/review.
