    Re: Lou Piniella to join YES Network

    Piniella is the master of stating the obvious. I didn't think he added much to the broadcast.
    David Ortiz tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in 2003.

    Re: Lou Piniella to join YES Network

    The Yanks are the only team that has a handful of rotating announcers. It is very frustrating watching their games as the announcers are changing every series. The announcers should be Kaat if he wants to come back and Singleton. Those two are the best. The others should be guest announcers who announce a few games each year. Listening to Red Sox games on NESN is a pleasure as Remy is a far superior announcer then Kay.

    He's given up on trying to pronounce 'Teixeira'. Now he just says 'Mark'.

    Pet peeve but seriously, how does Michael Kay not know the year that Cone threw his perfect game? It's not like those things happen every day and the Yanks haven't had once since. Not to mention it was a special day for Yogi as well. He eithr has a bad memory or not enough knowledge of this team's history. Hate to say it, but Gary Cohen and Howie Rose know eveyrhting about the Mets. Not as much for Kay regarding the Yanks.

    Not a huge Kay fan but he is better then Remy. Remy is awful day in day out. The guy openly campaigned to be "president of Red Sox nation" and never misses a chance to plug his restaurant. He is Fran Healy..the sun is always shining.

    If a YES announcer ever declared he was running for president of "Yankee Universe" he would be ridiculed and rightfully so

    I do like Don Orsillo he has a smooth voice and does some good play by play on NESN

    it's just his voice/tone/enunciation and he can't help it, but it really sounds like he's permanently drunk or, at least, hungover.

    not really enjoyable to listen to over the course of a game.

    I think Lou likes taking the money from the Yanks. He certainly doesn't bring much to the broadcasts. I still say the best of the broadcasters is Singleton followed by Cone and Kay.
