Jerry Seinfeld 'insanely furious' about release of Mets announcer: Report

A report that Bobby Ojeda will not return to SNY as part of the Mets broadcast team this season, and ex-Met Nelson Figueroa is in serious negotiations to succeed Ojeda, shook up Citi Field Thursday.

The popular Ojeda pitched five years for the Mets and was a part of SNY's pre and post-game shows for the team's broadcasts since 2009. Ojeda and SNY could not agree to a new deal after his contract ran out following the 2014 season, according to the N.Y. Daily News.

The news of Ojeda's abrupt exit didn't go unnoticed by some Mets fans — especially the Metsie who seemingly notices everything: Jerry Seinfeld.

The comic — and occasional Mets broadcaster — didn't take the news lightly and in his own inimitable style called for justice via Twitter:

Having Seinfeld on your side is like snagging the last marble rye but, where's Keith "Pretty Boy" Hernandez when you need him?
