Sterling or Scully: Gary Cohen’s terrible opening day HR call

Bottom of the 9th. Home opener. Fans in the stands for the first time in 16 months. Mets down one.  Jeff McNeil up….on his…birthday.   Now watch.  It’s CLEARLY gone off the bat.  It’s quite gone.  McNeil knows it, you know it and first of all Gary Cohen knows it.

So rather than give an honest call, Gary goes to his old stand by about the wall.  And of course I think some day he’s going to sell It’s Outta Here t-shirts.

This is a bad call.  It is a Sterling-eqsue “It Is High, It Is Far, It Is Gone” that does nothing to capture the moment.

Verdict: Sterling
