OABT S3 E14: Being A Fan Of The Mets Is A Damn Rollercoaster
Being a fan of this team is a damn rollercoaster. After being swept in Miami, the Mets come home to take 4 straight from the Nationals. Pete McCarthy and Darren Meenan broadcast this weeks show live from Mikkeller NYC. Special thanks to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo for stopping by to chat about all the latest on the Mets beat. It seemed as though Mickey Callaway was about to lose his job, and just a few days later the Mets are back to a game below .500. Baseball is the best and worst all at once. LGM!

An "Orange and Blue Thing" is something that Mets fans can relate to, so that's what we talk about.
With 10 games left, everyone is just going through the motions at this point. The 7 Line Army's Boston outing was fun minus the game, Barnie the Bull is about to live a good life, dog poop tampons, Darren might have to be "Loyal Til The Last Tailgate", Pete Alonso is hosting a Home Run Derby event on Monday in Brooklyn for his Homers For Heroes charity, and a whole mash of other randomness.
Mr. Smile had his first breakout Mets game, an emotional 9/11 pre-game ceremony, The 7 Line Army being booed over the wave, we're heading back to Coney Island next summer, should the Mets sign Javier Baez this offseason, Pete Alonso shaved in the middle of the game, Boston pre-game plans, Once Upon A Time In Queens 30 for 30 drops this week, and a special round of Francisco Lindor themed BIG APPLE TRIVIA!
With just a few weeks left, the Mets are still not out of this thing. Do you believe they have a shot? The Yankees are coming to Citi Field this weekend, and for the first time in a while, both teams have postseason hopes on the line during the Subway Series. The 7 Line Army Holiday Party is almost a go, Pete Alonso broke the 100 homers mark, and everyone will know your name in Boston with T7LA.
