Josh Lewin Out From The Mets Booth

Josh Lewin Out From The Mets Booth

UPDATE 11/19: Josh is headed to the left coast. 

David Wright isn't the only loss for Mets fans after the 2018 season. It came out this weekend that the radio booth will be without Josh Lewin going forward. 

Early reports claimed this was a WFAN / Mark Chernoff / Mets decision, that had Mets fans, myself included, understandably pissed off.

Josh told the NY Post that this was not the case. 

“Earlier this week, I removed myself from consideration as part of the Mets’ radio team,” Lewin told The Post. “Instead I will be accepting an offer away from New York, with details coming as soon as the contracts get signed.”

While this stinks, you can't knock the guy for doing what's right for his career and family. I'm looking forward to see where he ends up. 

I loved Josh in the booth. He gelled great with Howie, and it was extra special to me that it wasn't just a job for him. Like Howie, Josh grew up a Mets fan, and genuinely loves the team. Fans connect with that stuff, and listening to the broadcast was always a treat.

I also gotta thank Josh for being as cool as he was with The 7 Line Army. He'd take time out of his day, when the schedule allowed, to swing by our tailgate parties, drop off pre-game notes, come on Orange and Blue Thing, etc. 

All the best Josh! I'll save a seat for you any time you wanna come cheer on our favorite team together.
