Matt Yallof says former role on SNY was his 'dream job'
I have nothing against Chris Carlin as the host of the Mets' studio shows this season, but then again I had nothing against the job Matt Yallof did in that role before SNY decided to replace him.
What did Yaloff - a distant cousin of mine - think of the move?
He took the high road:
"As a New York kid who lived for the Mets from the day I was born and worked my way up in the business and back to New York, this was a dream job.
"I believe that the fans knew I was one of them, because I did share the pain of the brutal losses and also enjoyed the amazing wins. It was fun."
Yallof's old boss, Curt Gowdy Jr.: "Matt Yallof and Lee Mazzili did a very good job establishing our pre and post. We just saw a window where we could try to improve it with Chris and Bob . . . I want to reiterate there was nothing lacking, but anytime we have an opportunity to improve you pursue that."
