The season is underway, and the Mets are battling for the top spot in the NL East. The Mets are winning more often than not, but there is already some cause for concern over the pitching. Specifically Vargas, and the bullpen. Home runs have been flying out of Citi Field, Jacob deGrom shows he's human, Pete Alonso absolutely murders baseballs, Michael Conforto is swinging a hot bat, Travis d'Arnaud is back with the ballclub, and more. Big stretch of games coming up.
Plus, a special interview with Barstool Sports' Kevin "KFC" Clancy. Super laid back conversation between Kevin and Darren from the upper deck seats at Citi Field. The guys chat about the Mets, Barstool Sports haters/lovers, what CUNCEL DA SAESON is all about, the origin of Big Sexy, and more. If you're on the fence about Kevin or Barstool in general, you may have a different perception after this interview.

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.

Pete Alonso is LOCKED IN, and seems to have traded Donnie Stevenson for a dugout pony. Speaking of trades, the deadline is Friday. Who will the Mets land? SNY's Joe DeMayo checks in with the latest rumors. The Mets are inducting Matlack, Darling, and Alfonzo in to their HOF this weekend, but nobody seems to know about it. Word is the Mets are making changes to step up for their minor leaguers, Julia got pooped on by a bird while dog walking, Johnny Stranger took his love to the Long Island Expressway to win back Courtney, and more from T7LHQ with Darren and Julia.
