NYDN: SNY has expressed interest in hiring Bobby V

Bobby Valentine 1 polaroidIn a report for the Daily News, Bob Raissman says SNY has reached out to Bobby Valentine to discuss a possible studio role on Mets telecasts.

“Valentine … would be featured on about 20 games, mostly marquee matchups like the Subway Series,” Raissman writes. “He would be seen on SNY’s new pre-pregame show. Valentine would also fill in for Bobby Ojeda, SNY’s No. 1 studio analyst, on his off days.”

Sources also told Raissman the fact SNY has reached out to Valentine means the Mets already approve the idea of hiring him.

Awesome. I’d love to see Bobby V in this role, and associated with the Mets again. I thought he was very good as an analyst on ESPN before he was hired by the Red Sox. He obviously knows the game and the city, he’s quirky and has a sense of humor, and would add a very positive element to an already excellent show. I also love the idea of linking another part of their history back to the club with Bobby V, even if he’s is in a television role and not direct involvement with the team.
