'Kiner's Korner' is back!

Aug 21, 2010, 2:11 PM EDT

From the moment SNY launched as the television home of the Mets in 2006, there has always been demand for vintage episodes of “Kiner’s Korner,” the former Mets postgame and rain delay show hosted by the venerable Ralph Kiner. Now those folks — including me — are finally getting their wish. Well, sort of.

According to Richard Sandomir of the New York Times, SNY.tv is set to begin showing weekly webisodes that combine clips from Kiner’s postgame interviews and new chats between him and Ted Berg of SNY. The first webisode is scheduled to air Tuesday, with eight more to follow.

Guests on the SNY webisodes, according to Sadomir, include Pete Rose, Bobby Valentine, Johnny
Bench, Richie Ashburn, Ed Kranepool (in two parts), Eric Davis, and
(Davey) Johnson and Tommy Lasorda (also in two parts).

Unfortunately most of the episodes are gone — tossed out or taped over by television networks — but this announcement is still enough for me to geek out a little bit.

    “Back in the day”, when I used to spend a fair amount of time in the NYC area on business, I always thought “Kiner’s Korner” to be a maybe-I’m-just-missing-the-charm thing. If not for his being with a GENUINE NEW YORK TEAM!!!, he’d probably be thought of as just another old ex-player, rambling on about how great he and his pals were and how “today’s players just don’t get it, don’t work hard enough, don’t know the fundamentals, blah blah blah…”
