S4 E16: With The Captain, 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.

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. Don't...



It looks like the ink is about to dry on Steve Cohen's deal to purchase the Mets. What does this mean for the team, and fans going forward? Michael Conforto is having a career year, and somehow still gets hate. Robert Gsellman broke a rib while pitching. Darren wants to pay the Mets to let him work at the ballpark. Bartolo Colon is still mashing home runs. Besides Jacob deGrom the rotation is a gigantic question mark. With just 15 games left in this weird regular season, time is running out...



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.

S4 E11: Dom Smith Is Thriving, and the Mets weekly tea
