OABT S5 E30: Let's Get This Over With

Yup, this season is toast. What an absolute disastrous collapse for our New York Mets. Like you, even though they rip our hearts out more often than not, we still love this team to no end. With 10 games left, everyone is just going through the motions at this point. The 7 Line Army's Boston outing was fun minus the game, Barnie the Bull is about to live a good life, dog poop tampons, Darren might have to be "Loyal Til The Last Tailgate", Pete Alonso is hosting a Home Run Derby event on...

With just a few weeks left, the Mets are still not out of this thing. Right now, Fangraphs has the boys sitting at a 8.7% chance to make the playoffs. Do you believe they have a shot? The Yankees are coming to Citi Field this weekend, and for the first time in a while, both teams have postseason hopes on the line during the Subway Series. The 7 Line Army Holiday Party is almost a go, Pete Alonso broke the 100 homers mark, everyone will know your name in Boston with T7LA, FREE Pit Viper...


OABT S5 E27: Mets Players Hit The Third Rail With Mets Fans

The hurricane that wasn't, Jerry Koosman's number will be retired by the Mets this weekend, we're rooting for the Yankees these next couple games, a first timer in first class, what big event would Julia hypothetically miss to be in attendance when David Wright's # makes it in the rafters, and more from T7LHQ with Darren...


OABT S5 E25: Bobby Valentine Joins The Show

It’s hard to stay positive about the Mets right now, but we found someone else who is and you may have heard of him. We finally got a hold of Bobby V, and it was worth the wait. Find out the true story behind him allegedly inventing the wrap sandwich, his plans for the city of Stamford if elected mayor, how he’d manage the Mets today, what it was like managing them after 9/11, and some exclusive breaking news on what his role will be for the 20 year anniversary game. And if you’re just plain...



Sorry, Pete Alonso.There's nothing to smile about right now. Our Bobby V interview went about as well as the Mets road trip. But, in the brief time we had with him, he assured us that every team goes through a bad 2-8 stretch, and this was ours. Much like the Mets, we’ll try again next week. We somewhat ease the pain talking The 7 Line Army's 2022 (tentative) schedule, new items dropping this week, and the Insomnia Cookies speakeasy. Mets are in third place, Baez is hurt, and no pitching...



August is here, and it's going to be a do or die month for the Mets. They've been all alone on the NL East's top step for 86 consecutive days, but it surely doesn't feel like it. The Mets were back in black on Friday, inducted 3 new members in to their HOF on Saturday, and lost the weekend series on Sunday. Baez is now a Met, but with another deGrom setback did the team really do enough before the deadline to set them up for the rest of the year? The Kumar Rocker draft deal fell through. Is...



The boys closed out their weekend with another series W in Flushing, and now own a 30-15 record at home. Pete Alonso is LOCKED IN, and seems to have traded Donnie Stevenson for a dugout pony. Speaking of trades, the deadline is Friday. Who will the Mets land? SNY's Joe DeMayo checks in with the latest rumors. The Mets are inducting Matlack, Darling, and Alfonzo in to their HOF this weekend, but nobody seems to know about it. Word is the Mets are making changes to step up for their minor...



We're back at T7LHQ after the Mets Saturday night disaster in Pittsburgh. There is a silver lining though, and it was the pre-game party. We never lose there. Francisco and deGrom are both on the IL, the Mets rotation is filled with question marks, and the NL East lead is now down to just 2 games. Josh Lewin is back in the mix with a daily Mets podcast, nudes for wins, black jerseys will return on Friday nights starting July 30th, a quick round of Big Apple Trivia, Philly T7LA event t-shirt...


S5 E20: YOWZERS! Tori and Daniel Murphy Join The Show

The All Star break is here, so we figured this would be a great time to catch up with 2014 Mets All Star Daniel Murphy and his wife Tori. Daniel recently retired from the game, and Tori is doing amazing things with the non profit organization Prom Series. We chat about the foundation and all the positivity they're giving foster girls across the country, Daniel going back to college, Gary Cohen's net negative comments on WFAN, what happened to The 7 Line Army flag he celebrated with during...


S5 E19: Fifty Shades Of Mets

Donnie Stevenson just won't go away, and was at the ballpark last night. Keith Hernandez is on the IL. The 7 Line Army is adding another home game to the 2021 schedule.
