“And the man on the radio won’t leave me alone…”
Now, apart from the occasional car ride which happens to coincide with a Mets game, I scarcely hear the sweet, dulcet tones of Howie Rose anymore.
All of this is a roundabout way of introducing Josh Lewin (@joshlewinstuff) as the Mets’ newest radio broadcast partner to Rose. Lewin replaces the nearly universally reviled Wayne Hagin, who himself superseded the unspectacular but decently cromulent Tom McCarthy. Regarding the new WFAN hire, Shannon Shark at Mets Police (@MetsPolice) has what I would consider a near perfect list of suggestions for Lewin. I’ll adumbrate them for you here, but please check out the original post for further descriptions of each.
1. Describe the plays.
2. You are allowed one catch phrase.
3. No “we.”
4. Don’t fake it about Mets history, just lean on Howie.
5. If the Mets suck be honest.
This is about as comprehensively succinct as you can make it, and it’s all you can really ask for in a broadcaster.
