The New York Mets' radio broadcast booth went through a shakeup this offseason after Wayne Randazzo signed a deal to cover the Los Angeles Angels through their TV booth. It's left an opening to partner with Howie Rose on WCBS.

Keith Raad, voice of the franchise's Single-A Brooklyn Cyclones, is expected to fill Randazzo's open role. But, the Mets will also need a third alternate for games that Rose does not travel.

The franchise is looking towards their rival Philadelphia Phillies to fill the gap.

According to Mets insider Mike Puma, Patrick McCarthy has emerged "among those under consideration" for this spot. McCarthy has deep ties to the Phillies organization. Not only does his father, Tom, the voice of the Phillies' television broadcast booth, but Mike currently works for their Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs affiliate.

The broadcast world is small, as pointed out by Puma. Tom, famously, was Howie Rose's former partner in the Mets' broadcast before heading to Philadelphia.
