In case you haven't noticed, it's officially baseball season! The days of "pitchers and catchers report in ... " countdowns are behind us. Instead, we bask in the joy that is spring training. Players have been flocking to Arizona and Florida to knock off the rust, shed the winter weight and, most importantly this season, begin acclimating to all of the rules changes coming to MLB this year. Of course, it's not just the players and coaches who are getting their feet wet ahead of the new season. Grounds crews, stadium vendors, front office personnel and many more are preparing for March 30, when the shouts of "Play ball!" will be heard all around the country. But for Keith Hernandez, he's got to get his flirt game in midseason form
Some people don't necessarily need as much time as others to get "back in the swing of things." One such example is the following clip, courtesy of one of the best broadcast teams in baseball: Gary Cohen, Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling, the New York Mets SNY broadcast team. Or, more specifically, thanks to Keith and Mrs. Met.

All that clip needs is the iconic "I'm Keith Hernandez" line from "Seinfeld."
Full disclosure: I'm a die-hard New York Mets fan; and, as such, am completely biased when it comes to where they stand among the broadcast teams around MLB. As far as I am concerned, they are the cream of the crop. The trio provides the perfect mix of exciting commentary, in-depth insight and knowledge about the game, and comic relief during the broadcasts. Of course, when it comes to comedy, Keith reigns supreme.
While the players work out the kinks on the field -- during games that don't mean anything other than getting back into shape -- Keith is in midseason form during this exchange with Mrs. Met. Maybe the Baseball Writers' Association of America will finally welcome him to the Hall of Fame as a broadcaster, even though he's more than deserving as a player, in my opinion. No doubt that debate will rage on. But for now, let's all bask in the glory that is Keith Hernandez with a microphone.
