NEW YORK, NEW YORK - JANUARY 25: Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez present Ron Darling with the Arthur and Milton Richman "You Gotta Have Heart" Award during the 97th annual New York Baseball Writers' Dinner on January 25, 2020 Sheraton New York in New York City.

MLB’s fans have spoken. The New York Mets and SNY have the best broadcast team in baseball. All hail Gary, Keith, and Ron.

The Athletic ran a fan survey to find the best broadcast team in MLB. Over 6,200 fans voted in the survey. Fans were asked to rank their local broadcast team on a scale of 1-5, which included play-by-play, color commentary, field reporting, pre and post-game shows, and technical quality. The Athletic tallied the results and the New York Mets‘ broadcast team was named the best in the majors.

Gary Cohen earned a 4.96 out of 5 from fans for his play-by-play work, a score that made him the best play-by-play man in baseball. The next closest were Duane Kuiper and Jon Miller from the San Francisco Giants, who earned a 4.94. No other play-by-play announcers topped 4.85.

Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling earned a 4.90 for their work as color commentators. Unsurprisingly, that made them the best in baseball in those regards. The next closest was Mike Krukow from the Giants, who earned a 4.88. No other team topped 4.75

Steve Gelbs earned a 4.42, a score that made him the third-best on-field reporter in baseball. Julia Morales of the Houston Astros beat him out with a score of 4.66. Alanna Rizzo of the Los Angeles Dodgers did the same by notching a 4.52 score.

Gary Apple and Todd Zeile earned a 4.01 for their work on the Mets’ pre and post-game shows, good enough for third in the rankings. The Giants’ post-game team earned a 4.17 grade to top the list, followed by the New York Yankees, who earned a 4.03.

Lastly, the Mets’ production team earned a 4.63, good enough for second in baseball. Only the Dodgers’ production team earned a better grade — 4.65.

The Mets’ overall grade of 4.91 sits atop MLB. The Giants were a close second at 4.88, but nobody else topped 4.75. It’s clear Mets fans appreciate their world-class broadcast squad.

Being a Mets fan can be hard, but having a top-notch broadcast team helps ease that pain on a daily basis.
