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.
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.
The boys are back at Citi Field for another week of Orange And Blue Thing. Jacob deGrom had a little scare but should be ok, Cano is back in camp, how will the 2020 climate change the overall experience for fans, Gary/Keith/Ron will be working both home and away games from Flushing, ESPN's 30 for 30 is rolling out a 1986 Mets documentary series, and more. Darren Meenan and Pete McCarthy live at the ballpark.
