He’s Keith Hernandez
There are few television analysts as knowledgeable and entertaining as Keith Hernandez, who, if you asked him the time would tell you how to build a watch.
Not only does he know baseball, but on Saturday showed he could work on Animal Planet, The Weather Channel and do QVC, which ironically has its corporate headquarters across the street from Tradition Field.
When the Mets are in Washington, always expect a history lesson.
After the starting pitcher leaves the game during spring training, writers wander in and out of the press room and clubhouse, where the televisions are always on.
Today, Hernandez was in mid-season form, talking about the spinner sharks gathering off the beaches on the Atlantic post; how to survive a tornado; and hawked Icky Poo, a product designed to eliminate pet odors.
When somebody in the press room asked: “What is Icky Poo?”
As if on cue, one writer said: `He’s coming into pitch.”
