OABT S3 E2: Brodie Van Wagenen joins the show, Mets talk and more
Spring Training is in full swing, and Brodie Van Wagenen joined the show from Hop Life Brewing Company down in Port Saint Lucie. Darren and BVW chat about a variety of topics like his Yoenis Cespedes expectations, a potential Tom Seaver statue, his social media presence, trading Kelenic, the Mets bullpen cart, David Wright's new role with the organization, and a few questions from twitter.
Darren also caught up with Darryl Strawberry at the QBC at Katch in Astoria back in January. Always great to chat with Straw.

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.
This Mets legend is just a couple years removed from the ball field. He leads the team all time offensively in numerous categories, should have his number retired soon enough, and has a book titled The Captain about to drop on October 13th. He's our friend, and yours. The one, the only, number 5, and soon to be father of 3, David Wright.
The Mets are in the home stretch, and with these wacky MLB postseason rules for 2020, the boys still aren't out of it. Jacob deGrom's Cy Young 3 peat might be in jeopardy. The Mets were granted permission to wear the first responders caps on 9/11, but was is for genuine reasons? The 2021 Spring Training schedule is already out. Steve Cohen is inches away from owning the team, and more. Mets talk mixed in with the usual randomness you'd expect from Julia Quadrino and Darren Meenan.
It looks like the ink is about to dry on Steve Cohen's deal to purchase the Mets. Conforto is having a career year, and somehow still gets hate. Gsellman broke a rib while pitching. Darren wants to pay the Mets to let him work at Citi Field, and more from this week in Mets baseball.
