Ron Darling owes the taxman half a million bucks

Oct 14, 2009, 8:20 AM EDT

Anyone wondering why Ron Darling doesn’t simply decide that life is too short to spend three hours in a booth with a horrible broadcaster like Chip Caray and go about his merry way now has an answer: dude desperately needs the money:

Tax agencies in two states and the IRS have former New York Mets pitcher and TBS analyst Ron Darling caught in a squeeze play. Darling, who helped call the Yankees-Twins game Sunday, owes $544,197 in state and federal taxes, records show.

First Jerry Koosman, now Ron Darling. Tom Seaver: call your accountant.

    Dudes I played softball with played with Darling once. Said he was a hitting God, which just shows you that even a crappy big leaguer is 40 times the player you could ever be.

    I don’t usually reply to posts but I will in this case. WoW
