Events are being cancelled left and right, the coronavirus is spreading more by the day, and some schools are shut down. Opening Day is just 17 days away. What does this all mean for the Mets? Mets fans have been keeping the Astros Shame Tour going down in Florida, Pete Alonso is pushing for more mic'd up aspects to the broadcast, Joe DeMayo calls in to state his case for Amed Rosario's 2020 ASG campaign, and more. Catch up on the week with Pete McCarthy and Darren Meenan.

An "Orange and Blue Thing" is something that Mets fans can relate to, so that's what we talk about.
This might also be curtains for OABT. It's been a fun 7 years, but this might very well be the final episode. We've had a lot of laughs along the way and we thank you for joining us each week. With that, we chat about our favorite moments running this show, and look to a few important things coming up for Mets fans.
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?
