Erik Malinowski (@erikmal) joined Kenny Ducey and Anthony Pucik on this week's edition of One on One to discuss the Yankees and Mets at the trade deadline, Derek Jeter's final All-Star Game, and more.
With the MLB All-Star break giving New York Mets fans a few days off from watching the Amazins’, WFUV’s Matt Moro and Kris Venezia decided to take a look at the highs, lows and the future of the ball club. The two also interviewed players and television play-by-play broadcaster Gary Cohen on Saturday.
Minneapolis, Minn.- The American League defeated the National League 5-3 in the 85th MLB All Star Game on Tuesday in Minnesota. However, Derek Jeter, playing in his 14th and final Midsummer Classic, was the real headline of the event as was expected. The expectations didn't necessarily include a 2 for 2 performance at the plate with a near incredible play up the middle though. But on a cool night in the Twin Cities that's exactly what the Yankees captain delivered.
It was a busy day for Kris Venezia, Nick Logerfo, and Matt Moro, hosting One on One live from Citi Field, but they had the chance to catch up with the legendary Gary Cohen. Cohen, currently the TV Voice of the Mets for SNY, has called the Mets games since 1989 on both TV and radio. He told the guys what it's like to broadcast the Mets through their ups and downs as well as his insights into their season this year.

Matt Moro caught up with OF Curtis Granderson, C Travis d'Arnaud, RP Vic Black, SP Zack Wheeler, and RP Jenrry Mejia. Outfielder Eric Young Jr. called into the show and joined Moro, Kris Venezia, Nick Logerfo as well.
Listen to the exclusive interviews below:
The Mets are used to sending a talented infielder to the summer classic in recent years, but time missed due to injury and a lengthy slump kept the team’s captain David Wright from being picked to the National League All-Star team this year. Instead, Mets second Baseman Daniel Murphy gets the honor of representing the New York Mets at the All-Star Game in Minnesota next week.
On Friday night against the Rangers, the Mets showed they had no problem exercising caution when it came to their left-hander starter Jonathan Neise.
The New York Mets received good news on Monday as third baseman David Wright will not go on the disabled list.
Manager Terry Collins said the seven time All-Star will miss the three game set with the Atlanta Braves, but should return soon after. Wright had missed the previous three games with a bruised rotator cuff in his left shoulder.
Since being placed on the disabled list on May 14 with a right lat strain, New York Mets opening day starter Dillon Gee has been rehabbing to rejoin the Amazins as soon as possible. He made his second rehab start with the Brooklyn Cyclones, the short season affiliate of the Mets, on Sunday night in Coney Island.
