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.
Diesel Donnie has the boys ripping heaters, and getting the bats back on track, the Mets caught an extremely lucky break in Philly, Rhys Hoskins is still a whiny bitch, Governor Cuomo says restrictions are being lifted, Conforto is heating up, Jess McCann learned that Twitter is a cesspool, The Indart's finally tied the knot, we're ramping up our Little League sponsorships for 2022, and more.
Governor Andrew Cuomo says Citi Field's capacity can be raised to 33% in May, but will it? Jacob deGrom somehow keeps getting better, the Mets are still in first place even after their Chicago shit sandwiches, The 7 Line Army is in MLB The Show again, and more from this week in Mets baseball.
The Mets are in first place, but can't stay out of the news for all the wrong reasons. The boys are off to Chicago, and hopefully get their series in versus the Cubs without more weather hiccups. Our starting pitching from deGrom and Stroman has been elite, Howie Rose should be back in the booth tomorrow after some time off with a medical issue, the Mets front office is unfortunately in the news again, Conforto is starting to come around, Nimmo can't stay off base, and more.
