I can’t figure out for the life of me why Eddie Coleman wasn’t the obvious choice for the open radio position now that Wayne Hagin has moved on.
I actually know Eddie Coleman and he’s a terrific guy. Knows his baseball history and has been in the Met family for years.
I don’t claim to know him well enough to have any insight as to what he thinks about this situation, in fact I haven’t spoken to him in a couple of years but my impression was always that he would gladly take the radio gig.
I don’t know who the F Josh Lewin is but he was raised in Boston and has been doing sports radio in Texas recently so I have to wonder why he got the gig over Eddie.
Of course I have to wonder if the salary for this job has been reduced to an insultingly low level which wouodnt surprise me.
But after the midwestern Hagin didn’t quite fit here in NY why would they go to Texas to get the next guy especially when Eddie Coleman is already in the house???
