It’s Nice To Have Fans As Announcers

Yesterday, WFAN’s Mike Francesa discussed how Mets broadcasters Howie Rose and Gary Cohen were “out of line” during this past weekend’s Subway Series. Francesa said that it’s great that the Mets have fans as announcers, but that they sometimes take it too far in rooting for their team, especially against the Yankees. Frankly, I love […]

No Ambulance Needed

One of the more light-hearted moments during yesterday’s SNY broadcast of the Mets 4-0 loss to the Nationals, came right after starter Stephen Strasburg threw pitch number 100 during the game. It was the first time Strasburg has hit the century mark in pitches thrown in his pro career with the Nats, said Gary Cohen. […]

Chin-lung “Boo”

The great thing in sports about having a first or last name that has two “o’s” next to each other or a “u” is that fans love cheering the name, even though it sounds like the player is getting booed. Carlos Boozer of the Chicago Bulls, Mets first base coach Mookie Wilson, Mets farmhand Lucas […]

Ron Darling Calls Out Fernando Martinez

One of the things that I love best about Gary, Keith and Ron, is that they can make their coverage of the Mets so entertaining and educating too, all while remaining objective at the same time. Their passion for the Mets is unquestioned and they do feel our pain. It’s their objectivity that puts them […]

Dillon Gee: Phenom Or Just More Mets Hype?

An article by posted on August 24, 2010 0 Comments

Some of you may have caught Monday night’s telecast of the Buffalo Bisons game on SNY. I wish they would broadcast minor league games more often, even if meant not broadcasting it live because of similar start times with the Mets. I’d rather watch a pre-recorded Bisons, B-Mets or Cyclones game over Beer Money and Daily News Live […]

During the mid 1980′s my niece and I went to Shea often during the summers – our schedules just worked out that way.  Sitting up in the third tier behind home plate, we had a great view of the whole field.  Hilary would take out her program and write the lineup in it so that […]

Would David Cone Be A Good Fit At SNY?

An article by posted on January 4, 2010 0 Comments

I thought this would be worth sharing with our readers. On Saturday, Bob Klapisch of The Record reported that the negotiations between David Cone and the YES Network have soured and that Coney may be looking for a new home. It appears Cone’s short but brilliant run in the YES broadcast booth may be over. […]
