Bobby Ojeda Out At SNY

Since 2009, Bobby Ojeda has been the lead Mets analyst on SNY's pre and post game coverage.Bob Ojeda is out at SNY, according to Andy Martino of the Daily News.

Ojeda, who joined SNY as a Mets pregame and postgame analyst in 2009, was very popular with fans because of his passion and fearlessness in calling things out.

You could always count on Ojeda to be refreshingly and brutally honest after a tough loss or a bad call from the dugout.

A source close to Ojeda told Martino that the former 1986 Met “absolutely” wanted to return, but the two sides could not reach an agreement on a new deal.

Former Met pitcher Nelson Figueroa is the frontrunner to replace Ojeda, Martino concludes.

Before Ojeda, the Mets had former players Lee Mazzilli and Darryl Strawberry doing the pre and post game shows, which actually was great for my insomnia.

Ojeda livened things up and even if you disagreed with his opinions, you respected his high energy and passion. He will be missed.
