The New York Yankees made it official and announced that they have reached a multi-year broadcast agreement with CBS Radio for Yankees games to be broadcast on WFAN beginning in 2014. Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon said Tuesday that the team is “negotiating with numerous parties” regarding its radio-broadcast rights for next season and beyond, but refused to speculate on where the Mets’ might land. Some are reporting that the Mets could end up airing on […]
According to SI.com, SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt will be adding to his already impressive resume. Beginning with the pre-season, Burkhardt will join former NFL Safety John Lynch in the booth to call games for the NFL on Fox. As many of you may know, Burkhardt has been calling games for the Dallas Cowboys radio network alongside Danny White since 2011 and has always had a passion for calling NFL games on TV. Now that dream becomes […]
I want to welcome our newest writer to the MMO family; Jacob Resnick. Jacob was the 2011 SNY Mets Kidcaster and in 2012 was a correspondent for the show Kid’s Clubhouse on SNY and has now brought his talents to the Mets blogosphere here on MMO. Be sure to say hello and give him a MetsMerized welcome as well as a follow at @Jacob_Resnick. Without further ado, here is Jacob’s post on the case for trading […]
Terry Collins announced to reporters in his pre-game press conference that Carlos Torres will start in place of Matt Harvey on Saturday against the Pirates. Going straight to my chief concern, Collins said it had partly to do with the team’s concern of innings pitched and that the team is now seeking to cut down Harvey’s workload for the second half as I have been clamoring for the last month. Harvey has accumulated 130 innings thus […]
As I mentioned in my previous post, Matt Harvey threw a season-high 121 pitches last night for the second time this season. Here’s some interesting data from ESPN on Harvey’s diminished effectiveness when he surpasses 100 pitches. There’s a clear case to be made to be wary of using Harvey after 100 pitches anyway: According to ESPN alumnus Steve Glasser, tonight marked the fifth time this season Harvey took the mound for an inning with his […]
Chris and Jenson bring you another edition of The Mets Weekly. In this episode they recap the week that was against the Diamondbacks and Brewers while weighing in on so many other Metsian storylines ranging from our two 2013 MLB All Stars as well Minor League All Stars Wilmer Flores and Brandon Nimmo. Of course, no weekly Mets recap of any kind would be worth its weight in salt without touching on the Josh Satin and […]
Michael G. Baron of SNY posted this info-graphic on Twitter after the game last night. Seeing his numbers jump out like that next to Justin Upton is mind boggling to say the least… Upton is owed $9.75M for 2013 by the Braves, and will earn an additional $14.25M next season and $14.5M in 2015. Meanwhile, Byrd is being paid $700K for this season by the Mets. Coming off that 50 game suspension after testing positive for performance enhancing […]
Wheeler’s debut should help SNY’s sagging ratings according to Neil Best of Newsday who writes: SNY is on pace for the lowest Mets ratings in its eight-season history, stuck with a team out of contention earlier than any other in that span, and suddenly has been gifted with a marquee attraction. “I think this team, fan base, organization, and maybe a little bit the announcers, need a jolt of excitement, and he provides that,” Ron Darling […]
In an article that was highly critical of the New York Mets, Bob Raissman of the Daily News pondered how challenging it must be for SNY to broadcast Mets games and still keep the viewers from tuning out. With no end to the Mets’ ineptitude and misery in sight, their broadcasters are the only entertaining element left. They won’t be able to stop the ratings from tanking, no set of voices can do that, but […]
