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. Unfortunately the black cloud of Flushing has already started raining on Citi Field as Marcus Stroman is injured, and our rotation is looking thin right out of the gate. Is it a big deal? Who knows, but any missed time is huge in this abbreviated season. This will be the first Opening Day in history where fans won't be in attendance, but the cutouts are waterproof, Juan Lagares is back, Matt Harvey won't be, it's #WomenInBaseballWeek, and more. Catch up with Pete McCarthy and Darren Meenan from the Citi Field parking lot.

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.
