Keith Hernandez was the heart and soul of the 1980s Mets teams that went from languishing at the bottom of the National League East to winning two division titles and a World Series championship. The former first baseman was a leader both on and off the field, and was given the captain’s “C” to honor his leadership on the team. However, despite numerous pleas by Mets fans to retire his number 17, the Mets have […]
According to the incomparable Marty Noble of Mets.com, SNY and Keith Hernandez have finally reached an agreement, and the most colorful color commentator (with apologies to Lindsay Nelson’s jackets) in Mets broadcast history will return in 2010 and 2011. A person familiar with the situation said on Monday that Hernandez and SNY, the Mets’ cable station, have agreed in principle on a contract that will extend the color commentator’s relationship with the club and the network through at least […]
Bob Raissman of the New York Daily News is reporting that there is some speculation going around that the SNY announce trio may not be back in full next season. Raissman, who always does a stellar job covering the network, reveals that there are some rumblings going around that Keith Hernandez may not be back in the booth next season. This speculation is fueled by comments made by the former All-Star first baseman following Sunday’s […]
With the Mets eliminated from playoff contention for what seems like months, it comes as no surprise that fans have been turning their interests to football and season premieres of awful reality shows. There are no personal milestones for Mets players to achieve, no spoiling of other teams’ playoff chances and no promising rookies to showcase. So why do I keep tuning in to watch the games? Am I such a Mets-ochist that I can’t […]
Newsday’s Neil Best was fortunate enough to meet with Keith Hernandez recently. Keith was gracious enough to allow his camera crew to film him and his lovely wife Kai in their beautiful Long Island home in Sag Harbor. I absolutely loved all the vintage bobblehead dolls that you could see everywhere, as well as all the hardware he accumulated throughout his career including two miniature versions of the 1986 and 1982 World Series trophies. You […]
As some of you may have noticed today, Zach Braff appeared on SNY’s telecast of the Mets/Cardinals game yesterday. During his interview with Kevin Burkhardt, Braff discussed how he was in the process of filming episodes for the popular sitcom, Scrubs, which is entering its ninth season. This sent me off on a random thought of which Mets players/announcers, both past and present, would play some of the show’s characters. I figured why not parlay […]
Before I begin, I’d like to thank my colleague, Rob (Tie Dyed) for writing an exceptional piece on Tom Seaver and for inspiring me to write this blog. I’d like to consider it a companion piece to his blog. Thanks, Rob! June 15. It’s a date that many Mets fans will remember as the day the Franchise was traded to the Cincinnati Reds. Tom Seaver’s trade was the beginning of a dark time for the […]
So now that we finally figured out where Dan Murphy should play defensively, how long before we start worrying about his lack of hitting this month? I mean it’s great that we found him a permanent position he can call his own, but will he hit enough to justify his hold on first base both now as well as the future? If I knew that Murphy was projected to be a 30-100 type slugger as […]
