OABT S3 E17: It's time! 18 Straight Days Of Games On Deck For The Mets
June is in full swing, and the Mets are still hovering around the .500 mark. With 18 straight days of games on deck, the boys have a shot to get back in the mix in the NL East race. Pete Alonso continues to impress, Chase Utley still sucks, SNY's Andy Martino still has some of the coldest takes in NY, the Mets split the Subway Series double header, Lion's Head Tavern is awesome, Pete doesn't believe in aliens, The 7 Line Army's 100th outing is just a couple weeks away, a couple live calls, and more from this week in Mets baseball with Pete McCarthy and Darren Meenan.
Check back each week for a new episode throughout the baseball season. We stream on FB Live and Periscope/Twitter usually on Thursday nights at 6pm ET, and then post the audio after as a podcast. For now check out the replay. If you're feeling it, share with your friends, subscribe to the podcast, and rate/review.

An "Orange and Blue Thing" is something that Mets fans can relate to, so that's what we talk about.
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?
