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.

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.

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...
