With the MLB All-Star break giving New York Mets fans a few days off from watching the Amazins’, WFUV’s Matt Moro and Kris Venezia decided to take a look at the highs, lows and the future of the ball club. The two also interviewed players and television play-by-play broadcaster Gary Cohen on Saturday.
Tim Kurkjian, ESPN baseball analyst, joined the show and immediately addressed Terry Collin’s decision-making in Fridaynight’s Mets game. He also discussed some Yankees worries concerning CC Sabathia’s early struggles, Pineda’s pine tar incident, and the lack of stadium attendance in April. Kurkjian added some unique anecdotes and personal thoughts about the influx of Tommy John Surgery amongst younger pitchers in today’s game, too.
