An "Orange and Blue Thing" is something that Mets fans can relate to, so that's what we talk about.
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.
Mets legend and Hall Of Fame pitcher, Tom Seaver has passed away at the age of 75. Tom Terrific was THE Franchise, and put up astronomical numbers over his 20 year career in the big leagues. Darren Meenan and Julia Quadrino weren't able to witness Tom's greatness on the mound, but took a few calls from fans that had fond memories to share. A Seaver statue should be coming, but is it too little too late?
