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.
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.
