    Absence of Kay

    I dont know if I missed other conversation on here regarding the topic, but can anyone tell me why Michael Kay has not been doing that many games this year?

    I guess I'm in the minority, but I do. Believe me, there are much worse announcers out there. Kay isn't bad, IMO. Not everyone is Vin Scully

    The worst is not only do we not get him for Yanks games but they replace him with Max "the moron" Kellerman on ESPN Radio. That dude knows nothing about any sport.

    UGH, tell me about it. Being in Chicago I am MORE than familiar with "Hawk". What a moron. Listen to him for a few innings, scratch that - a few BATTERS, and you'll be begging to bring back Kay.

    He knows plenty about boxing, though it's not a major sport.

    At least he's a Yankee fan and raves about them constantly, which you don't hear much of on "The flagship station of the New York Mets".

    Kay has his schedule predetermined before the season starts. However, since the Red Sox series, Kay and YES feel that he can take some time off because these are not "big games" anymore like last season.

    Wouldnt suprise me if Kay missed the Baltimore and Tampa series and comes back for the Boston series next week. You know M-Kay cant miss the "big ones".

    Well I remember him from his days with the Yankees, but I am frequently reminded of his awful game calling when I listen to their games on XM radio...its nice that they have all the games because you do get to hear different persoanlities, which is USUALLY good...but not in Ken's case.

    On the positive side though, I get to hear Bob Uecker that way, and he is awesome to listen to. Some of his calls are so funny that they end up using them on some of the baseball talk shows on XM for the pure comedic value. My favorites are the ones where the visiting team hits a home run and he sounds like someone just killed his dog, or he basically ignores it with a quick mention and then goes right back to the story he was telling.

    I cannot stand him. I actually am enjoying this Leiter-Singleton combo.

    "That dude" is one of the top boxing analysts that exists. And he's a die-hard yankee fan. I'm not sure what's too complain about.

    Kay, since joining YES, has only done 100 games. That's what's in his contract.

    Seth, I believe he signed on to more this season since he started a new contract.

    Re: Absence of Kay

    Maybe all of our complaints about Kay comparing baseball etiquette to "throwing people in ovens" and "keeping black people as slaves" got through to someone at YES.

    You're posts always make my day. You have the best sense of humor, and I always get a good laugh out of your sarcasm

    I remeber hearing something about him doing 130 games a year.

    If the Yanks and Red Sox were in an acutal "race", Kay would be behind the mic tonight. But there isnt, so Michael is saving his bullets. Besides, in 02 and 03, Kay and YES did a similar thing. He's probably the only broadcaster in baseball that can pull that off.

    Orsillo does all the NESN games.
    Cohen does all the SNY games.
    Kuiper does all the FSN Bay Area games.
    Harrelson does all the White Sox games.
    Physioc does all the Angels games.
    Brennaman does all the DBacks games except during Fridays when he has to do a FOX game.

    No one else seems to have the schedule that he has. Good for him.

    Sounds about right. I'm not sure about his personal/family life, but hopefully everything is fine there.

    Max Kellerman is filling in on his ESPN Radio show this week, so perhaps like many, he's on vacation.
