SNY announcers criticize Omar Minaya's news conference

Omar Minaya has some work to do in

Omar Minaya has some work to do in 2010.

SNY again showed Monday that its on-air talent has more freedom to criticze the Mets organization than their counterparts at YES when it comes to the Yankees or MSG on the Knicks and Rangers.

(MSG, the Rangers, the Knicks and Newsday all are owned by Cablevision.)

Gary Cohen, Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling bluntly criticized Omar Minaya before the game. (Not ownership, though.)

Later, the SNY boys landed a more subtle jab.

The announcers are not big fans of their booth in Citi Field, which Gary Cohen seemed to hint at in the fourth inning when a popup by one of the Rockies landed in the stands.

After Keith Hernandez asked Cohen whether he had lost the ball in the overhang, Cohen muttered, "I'm not sayin'."

Pause. "Maybe we can get it on the blimp shot," he added.
