Original Report

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reminds us that SNY color man and analyst Keith Hernandez still remains unsigned, but that contract negotiations to remain in the Mets broadcast booth are expected to begin shortly.

SNY has had some major turnover recently and parted company with analyst Bobby Ojeda and roving reporter Kevin Burkhardt last season, both of whom were replaced by Nelson Figueroa and Steve Gelbs respectively.

Hernandez, 62, has been a commentator on Mets telecasts on SNY for 10 seasons. He has been joined by play-by-play announcer Gary Cohen and fellow analyst Ron Darling to form one of the most beloved broadcast teams in sports.

Here is an excellent and entertaining interview of Keith Hernandez by sportscaster Dan Patrick.
