The possibilites are now limitless. Jose Reyes dawdles coming out of the box in the first inning? Dial up Gary Cohen and rip the Mets shortsop. Willie Randolph makes a suspect late-game pitching change? Call Ron Darling and whine to him. Carlos Delgado looks like a stiff trying to get around on an inside pitch? Phone Keith Hernandez and ask him how it feels getting "old" in the batter's box.Considering the Mets were winning eleven to nothing at the time I guess it was a good idea, but I'm with Kirk on this one. There's no way I want a kid from the Bronx calling during a tie game in September. I think this could work as long as they don't over do it. Now if we can only get ESPN to do this so I can call and tell Joe Morgan he's lost his mind.
"You want to do this in a 5-4 game with the bases loaded and a 3-2 count on some hitter? Do you want to do it then?" an incredulous Hernandez asked Thursday. "That would get in the way (of the game). You don't want to do anything to interfere with a game that's remotely up in the air. ... (But) it's not going to be my decision to make whether we (take calls) during a game."
