Re-live the 2000 Mets postseason run in our first-ever watch-along. In this episode, we watch highlights from the run to the World Series (courtesy of YouTube!), including Benny Agbayani‘s game winning HR in Game 3 of the NLDS, Bobby Jones’ masterpiece to clinch the series and the Shea excitement of clinching the NL Pennant. As we watch, we remember members of the team no longer with us, such as Darryl Hamilton, and jam to the team’s song of choice this offseason.
Along the way, we drop tidbits and personal stories of where we were during these games, including JohnnyIce’s lonely WS Game 5 evening at an NYC bar, why Ray received a death stare from John Stearns a few years later and the great debate on where the 2000 Mets rank in team history. Topics addressed at the start of the episode include the week that was in Mets land, including the great heel turn by Trevor Bauer, and Ray’s bold prediction.
