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.
A storm knocked out most power and cell service in the area, but the show goes on. Darren Meenan and Julia Quadrino live from T7LHQ. The Mets are off to a slow start with no time to spare. Cespedes opts out, more playing time for Dom Smith, Pete Alonso needs to get back on track, Billy Hamilton is now a Met, we play a couple rounds of Big Apple Trivia, and more.
With just 6 games in the books, the Mets regular season is already 10% over. The boys are playing .500 ball so far, more than half the teams are making the playoffs in 2020, Jose Reyes officially retired, Cespedes hit a couple bombs so far, David Peterson had a stellar big league debut, and more.
It didn't feel like this day would come in 2020, but MLB is set to kick off their season, and the Mets 60 game sprint is finally upon us. Stroman is hurt, Lagares is back, Matt Harvey won't be, are we actually cheering for the Yankees now?, and more. LET'S GO!
