In the final portion of the 25th anniversary show, Mike Francesa featured the regulars of today’s current WFAN, along with some other very special guests.
The Subway Series is to be savored, like fine wine or food or film. Six games per season is overkill, particularly when the Mets are reduced to roadkill every time.
Pam Duquette, the wife of Jim and mother of Lindsey, said Monday night that the transplanted kidney is “working great.”
Long before they ever met, Howie Rose and Gary Cohen could well have heard each other cheering, as they roared along with the crowd.
Craig thought it was only right to play the extended version of the great Howie Rose’s play-by-play call of Johan Santana’s historic final out Friday night.
After a string of close calls in their 51-season history, Santana finally finished the job in the Mets’ 8,020nd game since the team was born in 1962.
Johan Santana will be back on the mound for the Mets today, so it was there that Jerry Recco began his very first update of the Show.

Carter could always be counted on for a smile, a timely hit — and in 1986, a championship. Those close to the catcher joined WFAN to remember “The Kid” shortly after his passing.
“It’s exciting to be part of the Mets’ broadcast team with Howie Rose, who is one of the best in the business,” Lewin said.
On this date, October 27, 1986, the Mets were tops. They owned the city like no team ever had in the history of New York sports.
Reyes has broken the baseball code of ethics? As if baseball has any ethics anymore?
Mike Francesa will join Howie Rose and Wayne Hagin in the booth tomorrow afternoon at Citi Field for the Mets final game of the season. During the broadcast listeners can tweet or email questions to Mike, Howie and Wayne.
During Saturday night’s Mets-Giants game the play-by-play duo of Howie Rose and Wayne Hagin took some time out to explain the origins of Jerry Recco’s nickname Jerry “Rello”.
Every now and then the real world and the sports world cross paths. And when they do it’s usually with chilling emotional resonance. Live broadcasts and documentaries will forever provide the connection.
