Sorry, Michelle Beadle of ESPN. You’ll always be “Michelle Bradley” to World Series champion Keith Hernandez.
Beadle’s new “Get Up” weekday morning show with Mike Greenberg and Jalen Rose had one of its funniest moments Thursday morning after an appearance by Hernandez, the ex-Mets and Cardinals star turned popular Mets broadcaster on SNY.
During his Wednesday appearance on “Get Up,” Beadle and Hernandez spoofed Captain Keith’s memorable romantic scene with Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) on “Seinfeld,” where viewers can hear their inner thoughts. Take a look.

Hernandez, one of the most original and fearless TV analysts in baseball, is making the media rounds talking up his new memoir, “I’m Keith Hernandez.” He’s also earned plaudits from The New York Times for his wacky Twitter feed, which contains musings about baseball, life, music and his cat Hadji.
But when he tried to tweet his thanks to the “Get Up” gang Wednesday for inviting him on their show, it didn’t go well.
He referred to Beadle as “Michelle Bradley.” He complimented the new morning show’s funny little “skip” instead of skit.

Greeny gallantly tried to save the day, wondering whether “Beadle” auto-corrects to “Bradley” on Twitter?
But Beadle had a good time with it Thursday, saying she was “humbled” by the experience.
“I thought for sure that we were going to end up dating. And now I know that he didn’t even know my name the whole time,” joked Beadle, holding a paper over her face in mock shame.
