Well Figs, now look what you did. You provide really good no-bullshit analysis and we aren’t going to have that on our pre and post game show.
Todd Ziele will be taking over, per this report.
I can’t say I watch much pre, and even less post (coming up in 20 minutes, Mickey Hodges’ presser that we could have just shown you live!) so I don’t really care, but Figs deserved better. I think. Never met him.
Anyway, muzzling the guy who doesn’t toe the line is a tradition that goes all the way back to The Young Howie Rose. I know you kids only know Howie as the venerable Mets announcer – but The Young Howie Rose would call bullshit on this team on something called Mets Extra on WFAN…and eventually the Mets wouldn’t allow Howie on immediately after the game and brought in the awful Todd Kalas to do a buffer post-game show. THEN Howie killed the Mets. I miss that version of Howie.
