I have had a mustache since I was 20  and now I am 62.  Every once in awhile I shave it off but I start a new one almost that same day.  I feel naked without it. LOL

Loved seeing a little of Keith's preparation. The worst part of living in South Carolina is not being able to watch Mets games.

Keith, Ron & Gary are the best!!!!!

Absolutely needs to grow it back! Great ball player, very entertaining in the both. Love the Cardinal booth messing with him. Very funny.

I'd really rethink the purple sweater.  Keith is a delight in the booth. He's got a bit of Phil Rizzuto in him--especially during a blowout. You know the game is lost when he starts talking about team uniforms and sanitary socks. Best broadcasting crew in the business. No contest. Just wish the team would ask Keith to spend some time with Duda, who is positively glacial around the bag.

I loved watching Keith play 1st base.  He was really aggressive and I think he changed the way players played the position. With that said I think he deserves to be in the HOF on his defense alone. Look at how many Gold gloves he was awarded.  11 gold gloves. 


I do have one complaint though.  I wish he would stop calling the Mets the "Metsies" . Keith seems to be getting real soft in his old age with his Fur wearing, wine drinking and constant fashionista  statements coming from him. Hard to believe this is the same hard nosed player he was back then. I love the guy and some of the controversial things he says but some days he hard to listen to.  LOL

@stage52  "Metsies" was a term coined by Casey Stengel, so watch what you say, buddy. :-) You're messing with a legend!

@brian2740 Gary is the play by play. He's supposed to "control" the booth.

@brian2740 Both Keith and Ron seem to know what could happen next before it happens.

@nwmets @stage52 i remember Casey saying it  but he was really old and senile then  .  watched my 1st  Mets game at the Polo grounds.

@nwmets @stage52 My father was a NY Giants Fan and going to the Polo Grounds was a natural in my Family.  He always bought Mets tickets when they played SF Giants but I did not mind seeing McCovey and Mays hit them out with regularity.

@brian2740 @stage52 I think Keith likes his uncomplicated life too much to ever be a manager at this point.  I think Ron really likes his job as an announcer more too.
