The Mets just won their first road series since April 3rd. Yes, it's mid July. The boys are somehow just 6 games back in the wild card race, and some fans are still holding out hope for a miracle run. Robinson Cano is heating up, a million people are planning to storm Area 51 in September and Darren is all in on it, Doc Gooden is unfortunately in the news, BVW broke his silence "they came and got us", more confusion between Mickey his players and the media, the Bagel Boss guy is trying to stretch out his 15 minutes of fame, Pete Alonso is becoming a household name, Sports Illustrated released their version of Mets Bingo, and more on this weeks show.

An "Orange and Blue Thing" is something that Mets fans can relate to, so that's what we talk about.
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?
Pete Alonso, who isn't toxic, hit his 40th and 41st home run of the season. Lindor, who doesn't get enough credit, hit his 25th home run and stole his 25th base. Ronnie Mauricio, who is finally in the Bigs, went 5-11 in his first series. We're hitting Minnesota this Saturday with 700 die hard Mets fans.
