08:45 AM ET 09.15 | Jerry Seinfeld will join SNY's Emmy-winning Mets coverage on Tuesday. Beginning with SNY's pregame show at 6 p.m., Seinfeld will team with lead studio analyst Bob Ojeda and host Chris Carlin on "Mets First Pitch." Following the show, Seinfeld will head up to the SNY broadcast booth to join Keith Hernandez, Ron Darling and Gary Cohen to handle the play-by-play for the Mets-Giants game. "Four guys who love to talk, sharing one broadcast booth sounds like a bad idea on its face. I don't even know if the chairs will fit," said Seinfeld, creator and host of the Emmy-nominated web show "Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee." "But to spend an evening with Keith, Ron and Gary, I will stand if I have to. Those guys, and the incredible Bobby Ojeda, are the all-star team of baseball broadcasting." ???Jerry might be the world???s greatest Mets fan. He is certainly the funniest,??? Gary Cohen said. ???As before, we will be humbled by his presence.???

Good, invite more people. Anything to help shut up Ron Darling that softball throwing goof who's nearing Joe Morgan'esque booth territory.

Okay ** As long as he works on broadcasting and leaves his comedy routine at home. don,t need him using broadcast both to sell his comedy gigs.

Flying in from del Boca to do this gig , is Bania doing the color with him ?

Let's just pick 20 fans at random to join in booth also. I can see mets fans getting upset when you put 4 egos in the booth . mets fan will have to call game for themselves. on Reds games they have 2 pretty good announcers, until they bring in a guest and the three of them get talking. Next thing you know the camera goes to the field and there is a runner on second. How did he get there? a few seconds later one announcer speaks up . so and so doubled high off of centerfield wall. then back to guest. fortunately that guest is usually only there for1/2 to 1 inning. then it is back to doing there job calling the play by play.

WHO?!

September 15, 2013  02:43 PM ET

Yes it can get worse for The Mets!!!!

They tried to get Kramer to show up, but he said,
"I'M OUT!!!!"

I hope this makes better sense than putting Dennis Miller in the booth on ABC's Monday Night Football back in 2000.
