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...

Ron Darling to join MLB Network team for the offseason

One of the things I greatly admire about MLB Network is their ability to see the offseason as a chance to rethink the way a baseball network should look. They don't just stand pat or go dark (like a certain league-owned network does, ahem NHL Network). They choose to find different ways to serve and superserve the baseball fan. Thursday, the network provided a perfect example...

Everyone might be fired up about the NFL Draft ... but that's not the case for ex-New York Mets pitcher and current broadcaster Ron Darling. During Thursday's Mets-Dodgers afternoon game -- hours before the NFL fun was to begin at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, Darling had a few choice words about the overhyped event.

How Ron Darling’s Career Ended

Ron Darling, of 1986 Mets and RBI Baseball (the original) fame; has shared the tale of how his career in the big leagues ended with Deadspin. It’s a great read, or it wouldn’t be getting a link from us. As I was leaving, the players were out at batting practice, so I dressed quickly.
