Newsday’s Neil Best is reporting everyone’s favorite huggable baseball analyst will be returning to television. Reynolds, who has been working for MLB.com, will appear as a studio analyst for SNY, the cable home of the New York Mets.
Most people remember and came to enjoy Reynolds for his work on Baseball Tonight. But an unfortunate incident of sexual harassment occurred and Reynolds was shown the door. While many questioned the whole episode and rallied behind the popular Reynolds, he found himself from the Worldwide Leader to the little used MLBtv. An unfortunate “fall from grace” so to speak. Reynolds did sue ESPN and, after a long process, it was settled last week.
So congrats and good luck to Reynolds, although if you’re outside the tri-state area, you probably won’t see him on a regular basis.
