TweetFollow @NYMetsLifeRon Darling has agreed to a contract extension with SNY to remain in the booth with Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez.

Ron Darling to join MLB Network team for the offseason

One of the things I greatly admire about MLB Network is their ability to see the offseason as a chance to rethink the way a baseball network should look. They don't just stand pat or go dark (like a certain league-owned network does, ahem NHL Network). They choose to find different ways to serve and superserve the baseball fan. Thursday, the network provided a perfect example...

Ron Darling no fan of NFL Draft

Everyone might be fired up about the NFL Draft ... but that's not the case for ex-New York Mets pitcher and current broadcaster Ron Darling. During Thursday's Mets-Dodgers afternoon game -- hours before the NFL fun was to begin at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, Darling had a few choice words about the overhyped event.

How Ron Darling’s Career Ended

Ron Darling, of 1986 Mets and RBI Baseball (the original) fame; has shared the tale of how his career in the big leagues ended with Deadspin. It’s a great read, or it wouldn’t be getting a link from us. As I was leaving, the players were out at batting practice, so I dressed quickly.
