Darling Misses Plate On Latest Harvey Mess

Normally, I enjoy Ron Darling’s insight on baseball and the Mets. I think he’s one of the best in the business. However, this time we deserved better from him when it came to weighing in on the latest Matt Harvey fiasco. I thought Darling and his mates on SNY – Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez – let Harvey off easy during the innings limit drama by taking the path of least...

Minihane: NESN Eyeing Ron Darling As Sox Color Man

Darling (L); Remy (R)Kirk Minihane—of WEEI's Dennis & Callahan Morning Show—is reporting (from two sources) that NESN is 'interested' in pairing Ron Darling (as color man) with new play-by-play man Dave O'Brien.

Ron Darling called out Matt Harvey for 'barking about' 6 man rotation

There to promote TBS' playoff coverage, Ron Darling half heatedly agrees with Craig Carton that everyone (the Mets, et al.) knew that Matt Harvey had an innings limit. The Mets analyst quickly righted the direction of the conversation by stating, "Harvey barked the loudest about the 6 man rotation," which the organization had wanted to put in place to help limit the hypocrite's innings...

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...

Ron Darling on the Mets fan loyalty oath he signed: "I didn't read it."

Mets broadcaster Ron Darling joined WFAN's Joe & Evan to discuss that dopey New York Mets fan loyalty oath that he signed. Seems Darling (who said back in 1986 of the Mets crowd that showed up to games 1 and 2 of the World Series, "It's a wine sipping crowd, not our regular fans.") didn't read the letter before signing it. Ron went on to add, "It seems everything that comes out...
