RON DARLING RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mets announcers critical of Nats fans for not supporting Max Scherzer enough

The New York Mets’ TV announcers were oddly critical of Washington Nationals fans for not applauding Max Scherzer enough during Wednesday’s game between the teams. The Nats won the contest 4-2 behind Scherzer’s 7.1 innings of two-hit scoreless ball.

Ron Darling Despises The Cracker Jack & Mac Dog

You’ll remember when the Pirates debuted the Cracker Jack & Mac Dog, which contains caramel sauce, jalapenos, cracker jacks, and macaroni and cheese at PNC Park this season. I had a feeling that this wasn’t going to be a rousing success, and now we have our focus group: Mets broadcaster Ron Darling. He wasn’t shy in his opinion. The Mets broadcast team is known for being...

Jerry Remy denies reports of Ron Darling replacing him in NESN booth

Who will be in the NESN Red Sox broadcast booth next season continues to be a soap opera. Drama already ensued when news broke that Don Orsillo was being pushed out as the play-by-play announcer after 15 years at the microphone, to be replaced by Dave O’Brien. Then the network clumsily handled the tribute that the Red Sox paid to Orsillo during his final home game at Fenway Park...

SNY Mets’ broadcaster Ron Darling calls Toronto’s CN Tower “The Sky Needle”

If you’re going to open a broadcast by referencing local landmarks, you might want to make sure you have their names correct. As Sean Fitz-Gerald of The National Post notes, Sportsnet New York’s Ron Darling didn’t do that Wednesday, opening the call of Wednesday’s Mets’ game in Toronto against the Blue Jays with “You’ve got the Rogers Centre, you’ve got the Sky Needle...

Mets broadcast team celebrates 10 years together in the SNY booth

The 2015 New York Mets season will represent the 10th year together for SNY’s (SportsNet New York) broadcast trio of Gary Cohen, Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez. It’s an impressive run, one not typically seen on regional team broadcasts. The success is even more notable, considering how rare three-man booths are on sports television these days.

Mets Card of the Week: 1991 Ron Darling

1991 LEAF RON DARLING I spent an idle post-holiday hour thumbing through a 3,000-count box of cards this past Sunday morning. It was a box of no special report, containing mostly early ’90s junk from a range of manufacturers, picked clean of any Jeter rookies or the like. But it can be so refreshing to spend time with a big brick of commons like this, as a quick portal back to...

Darling Regrets Not Reading Mets Loyalty Pledge Letter

In a harsh rebuke of the front office, New York Post columnist Mike Vaccaro points out how the Mets vowed in the spring of 2013 that this was going to be the year they blew the dust off their wallets and jumped back into the game, act like they own a team based in New York City, not Oklahoma City. “And, you know: act like True New Yorkers.” The Mets, who are 1-6 since asking...
