It’s been a staple at 1 p.m. on the Moose and Maggie Show as of late, and today was no exception, as the Mystery Guest of the Day brought a former New York hurler back to the airwaves.
Today’s Mystery Guest was obviously a baseball player in this town, as well as Minneapolis and Boston, and it was a pitcher as correctly guessed by Maggie Gray. Maggie had first guessed Willie Randolph, but after the guest told Moose & Maggie he was managed in Boston by Butch Hobson, he was identified…
Yes, it was Viola, the Long Island native, St. John’s alum, and 15-year MLB veteran who joined Moose and Maggie to kick off their final hour, and he discussed his thoughts on whether he’d be working in MLB amidst the COVID-19 pandemic – Viola did serve as the pitching coach for High Point of the independent Atlantic League in 2019 – and how fans will respond to the resumption of sports.
Viola also talked, of course, about some Mets-related topics, including new manager Luis Rojas, Noah Syndergaard’s Tommy John surgery, and how former top prospect turned Mariners trade target Jarred Kelenic might now be on track to make Seattle’s opening day roster.
The Syndergaard clip can be heard by reloading the page and watching the video above, and you can listen to Viola’s whole segment below. And, of course, you can check out more on-demand audio from Moose & Maggie, or tune in every day to the WFAN.com livestream of the show!
