Mets should keep cutting to Steve Gelbs in blowout games

Watching a New York Mets game on television wouldn’t be the most enjoyable experience it is without the trio of Gary Cohen, Keith Hernandez, and Ron Darling’s commentary. Their chemistry is unmatched, being named the best broadcast booth trio in baseball last year in a survey conducted by The Athletic. The trio has been together for over 15 years and makes even the most uninteresting games entertaining. Already earlier this year the trio made headlines on April 7th when “Keith Hernandez’s cat emergency” took attention away from the Mets first home run of the season.
