On Wednesday, myself and a couple of the usual suspects, Dan Haefeli and Mike Lecolant, got together for the 49th episode of the Rising Apple Report, with a very special guest.
Phil Hartman, a die-hard Mets fan and the co-founder and owner of Two Boots Pizza, joined us to not only talk about the best pizza chain in all of New York City, but give his opinion on how he thinks the Mets offseason should go. He also got into his own personal fandom history, and how Two Boots came to exist out at Citi Field.
With the Curtis Granderson rumors heating up that day, we of course got into a lot of chatter regarding the outfielder (including Phil being leery to catching Yankee cast-offs) and discussed a bit of Erisbel Arruebarruena, a Cuban shortstop who recently defected that the Mets will send scouts to see.
Last but not least, we discussed the players who have worn number 49 over the course of Mets history.
Enough of me typing!!! Time for you to listen. Enjoy.
