NEW YORK (WFAN) — Ron Darling says he has nobody to blame but himself for putting his name on a widely panned letter from the New York Mets to “True New Yorkers.”
The SNY analyst was one of 10 former Mets players to sign the email asking fans to pledge their support head of this month’s Subway Series.READ MORE: Metro-North Penn Station Access Project Allowed To Resume, 4 New Stations To Be Added In The Bronx
The letter wasn’t received well, with some calling it “dopey,” “beyond insulting” and “disgraceful.”
“I’ll tell you it this way, because if I explain completely how it went, I’m throwing someone else under the bus,” Darling said Wednesday on WFAN’s “Joe & Evan” show. “I was asked to put my likeness and name to something. I did not read what was going to be put out there. And I think for me to criticize it and to go after it, I’m going to put someone else in harm’s way. So I think I should just put myself in harm’s way.
“I didn’t do my due diligence to read what went out.”
