This Week In SNY, Featuring Kevin Burkhardt As Mary Poppins And Jason Bay: Weatherman

The Mets had a rough go at it last week, finishing just 1-5 against the Yankees, Cubs and Phillies. But the characters at SNY kept it entertaining. We'll start off with an older item, courtesy of Rob Castellano. Fernando Martinez hit a home run in Houston on May 13th, catching the SNY graphics master by surprise:

What a Misch-take. Someone Misch'ed the boat on that one. Your Misch-ion, should you choose to accept it, is to distinguish Fernando Martinez from Pat Misch. Etc.

Keith Hernandez demonstrated his tech-savvy, exclaiming "57,000 people responded?!" to this Toyota Text Poll, which was open for maybe five minutes:

Quoth Keith: "You look like Mary Poppins!"

I'm pretty sure tank top fan was the guy heckling Justin Turner all game with the very audible "You suck, you ginger!" taunt. Nothing like a dozen beers at Wrigley during a Cubbies loss in pouring rain:

We learned that Jason Bay prefers the bowl haircut and would be a weatherman if he didn't play baseball:

To that we say -- follow your dreams Jason! It's never too late. There's a Sam Champion resemblance there.
