Our good friend and legendary broadcaster Jiggs McDonald has informed us the MSG has asked him to fill in for Howie Rose on the TV side to start the season if the New York Mets make the post-season. Like last year, Howie will be with the Mets during their playoff run and will re-join the Isles once the Mets wrap up their post-season play (and hopefully a World Series Championship). If the Mets miss the playoffs, you can expect Howie to join Billy Jaffe from the begining.
Last year when Jiggs filled in for the first handful of games, it was a great experience for him, us and the fans. We're sure it'll be another great experience this time around.
Jiggs: We look forward to hearing you call the Orange and Blue again.
