It has been stated that former Mets Nelson Figueroa, Marlon Anderson, and good ol’ Cliff Floyd are being considered to replace Ojeda. I know for a fact that Mr. Floyd has been on MLB Network as an analyst before, so he might be a perfect person to take that role, but people are leaning towards Figueroa.
More so, I also feel as if another piece of greatness is leaving the SNY family. The credibility of success Bobby O has as a 1986 World Series champion will leave, and has left, an indelible mark on Mets broadcasting. Combined with Kevin Burkardt becoming a nationwide success as a football broadcaster, true talents are going elsewhere for work. Say what you will, but when people say that the Mets have the best broadcast team in TV and radio, it’s 100% true. A plethora of talent have walked in and ultimately walked out as true professionals of their craft.
I’m just a guy that hates change. I just prefer things to stay as they were. I also think Jerry Seinfeld feels the same way…
I know, I know, lame line. But I think Mr. Seinfeld feels the same as I do. Bob Ojeda was a true pro at his craft. He will be missed.
