Sterling or Scully: was Gary Cohen’s Sunday Ford Frick Award worthy? No.

 

I hoped Gary had read my notes. This first Home Run of the Day was a nice enough call. Nice enough is fine.

Verdict: Scully

But here’s Gary Sterling mentioning the wall for no reason other than it’s a lazy call.

Verdict: Sterling.

Ford Frick Award Worthy: No

Gary seems content to be just OK. He’ll probably get his Ford Frick Award for longevity. He should strive for greatness.  Right now he’s the Mets’ third best play by play announcer behind Howie (the best in baseball) and young Wayne.  You heard the Wayne booths on TV lately – was it that much of a drop?  Was it a drop at all?  No and no.    Be better Gary.

The 20th Anniversary of The Mercury Mets - and the alternate design that wasn't!!!
Gil Must Go: Yeah if you use 5 pitchers the game is going to take three hours. Awful.
