Basically, the Mets really like the player, but are comfortable turning elsewhere if the market outpaces what they expect (this is an unsurprising public position).
Doesn't hurt that Choo would probably help attendance a bit.
Damn, Mets are going to get kicked out of WFAN next year.
OK, but why do you care what radio station they're on?
@1: are you saying he'd drive-up Mets attendance because there's a lot of Koreans in Queens?
Don't you think they'll take their announcers with them? I mean, I hope to God you're right, and somehow WFAN keeps the Mets' current announcers to do the Yankees and you guys go to WABC and get the dreadful duo of Stirling/Waldman, but I'm not going to hold my breath.
Hey, a TV deal with Kim Il-Sun-Jong-whatever will get you 100% share in the North Korean ratings
The Mets have very good radio announcers right now. Any change to that will likely make things worse.
Newsday reported the Yankees are close to moving to WFAN. The report added that ESPN New York 98.7 and Clear Channel Communications, which owns WOR, are among the parties vying for Mets rights.
I can't imagine Howie Rose doing radio for anyone but the Mets
But if it means no Suzie and John, well, I won't complain.
I'm going to guess yes. It wouldn't make sense for one of the first moves of the new carrier to antagonize the fan base. Rose is very popular and very closely associated with the Mets.
Just sell the team, Fred.
On good days I could get WFAN in Burlington VT.
