Ron Darling's bobblehead looks so much like him, his fellow broadcasters can't tell them apart

The Mets gave away a Ron Darling bobblehead on Sunday and the likeness between the former starter and his bobbling miniature is startlingly uncanny. So much so, that the figurine has taken Darling's place as color analyst in New York's broadcast booth and no one has noticed.

As of this moment, Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez are totally unaware that the real Darling is relaxing at home. And he'd probably prefer it if you didn't let them know. The only question is whether Cohen and Hernandez notice their partner nodding a little more vigorously in agreement with them than usual.
