Raissman: Bobby V. Coming To SNY?
Is Bobby Valentine about to bring his high-wire act to the Mets Pregame show on SNY this season? That’s what some sources are telling Bob Raissman of the Daily News.
MLB sources say SportsNet New York brass has reached out to Valentine to discuss a possible studio role on Mets telecasts.
Valentine, who managed the Mets (1996-2002), would be featured on about 20 games, mostly marquee matchups like the Subway Series. He would be seen on SNY’s new pre-pregame show. Valentine would also fill in for Bobby Ojeda, SNY’s No. 1 studio analyst, on his off days.
Sources said the fact SNY execs have already contacted Valentine means the Mets organization has approved the idea of giving their controversial former manager a TV platform.
Raissman says that the final hurdle to a deal between Valentine and SNY will come down to money.
Valentine recently signed a deal with NBC Sports Radio to become a part-time co-host and regular baseball contributor.
