Rubin: Mets broadcaster Keith Hernandez remains unsigned by SNY

Re-sign Mex! Never mind his entertainment value, someone’s needed to throw out runners attempting to score from third base on routine ground balls.

Popular SNY New York Mets analyst Keith Hernandez remains a free agent, but contract negotiations to remain with the Mets-oriented regional sports network are expected to begin shortly, now that the Christmas and New Year’s holidays have passed.

Hernandez, 62, has been a commentator on Mets telecasts on SNY for 10 seasons. He has been joined by play-by-play announcer Gary Cohen and fellow analyst Ron Darling to form one of the most beloved broadcast teams in sports.

Cleveland Indians
Texas Rangers
Detroit Tigers
Kansas City Royals
Los Angeles Angels
Miami Marlins
Milwaukee Brewers
Minnesota Twins
New York Yankees
Arizona Diamondbacks
San Diego Padres

On top of the 15 clubs that will get in-market, the Toronto Blue Jays have had in-market streaming in place already. With the Blue Jays calling all of Canada their home market, the deal was much easier to reach.
