Apparently the Mets have not heard the gold old saying of, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.
They decided to take Lee Mazzilli and Matt Yallof out as hosts of the pre- and post-game shows. Their replacements? Mazz will be replaced by Bobby Ojeda and Yallof will be replaced by Loudmouth Chris Carlin.
This is not smart if you ask me. Plus, to be perfectly honest, I hate the fact that now the Mets have the attitude of, “Let’s give all of the ’86 Mets a job”.
I mean, really? Give me a break! I loved the ’86 Mets as much as any other Mets fan, but that does not mean they will be great as hosts or in any other part of the organization. They were good players and leave it at that.
As for Carlin, he should just stick with the Loudmouths. I love him on that show. I do not see him being great for a pre- or post-game host. Why not add Jason Schwartz, whom I loathe, while you are at it? I will go on record that if the Mets did do that, I will not watch it. I would boycott.
I am saying it now, this will not work!
