Jim Duquette and Others Auditioning To Call Mets Games In 2012

Mike Puma reports on some progress in the WFAN radio booth…

A source from the Wall Street Journal told me that the Mets will give the job as Howie Rose’s co-host to whom ever is willing to work for three hots (at Shake Shack) and a cot at the holding cell at Citi Field which has remained vacant since Francisco Rodriguez moved out.

I caught this in the NY Post this morning:

It’s doubtful Wayne Hagin will be back for a fifth year as Howie Rose’s partner in the Mets radio booth. Hagin’s contract has expired and WFAN has been interviewing possible replacements. Hagin previously called Rockies, Cardinals, Giants and A’s games.

I never really took to Hagin…

If they do replace him, I hope they give Howie a good co-pilot, but to be honest I wish they’d let Rose fly solo ala Vin Scully…
