Yakkin’ About Baseball: The Michael Kay Diet

Can’t stop the jellied vealing! David Roth and David Raposa serve it up!

David Raposa: Kay’s three basic food groups, per his wife: bacon, steak, and the aformentioned chicken-pasta amalgam. His colon must look like Clint Hurdle’s face.

David Roth: I know that Clint Hurdle is a bunt-happy doofus, but I do love that the Pirates are in first place. I love it a lot.

David Raposa: I wish I could fully get on board with the Pirate love.

David Roth: What’s your problem with the Bucs? They kept Derek Bell off the streets, they made Pat Meares a millionaire… they’re like the Medicaid of sports. Remember the neediest, David Raposa.

...David Raposa: I would love to hear what those dopes who dismissed the Nate McLouth trade have to say now.

David Roth: The dopes that bad-mouthed it all got traded themselves. Untouchable Core Guys/well-paid replacement-level busters like Sean Burnett were like “I’m not putting up a 4.15 ERA as a situational reliever to see my poker buddies get traded like this. OPERATION SHUTDOWN BEGINS NOW”

David Raposa: I was talking about the Rosenthals and Olneys of the world. I forgot there was a player revolt! “How are we going to win 63 games without our vaguely above-average center fielder! He made the best lemon squares!”

Having Kay and O'Neill in the booth after a couple series of Cone and Singleton is just a cruel joke by YES. Usually I can just tune out Kay, but after listening to good announcers it's nearly impossible. Worse, O'Neill is with him, has an annoying voice, rarely talks about the game, and never says anything interesting. The two have spent more time talking about putting cabbage on your head to cool down than they have the game.

Which was the style at the time.

Don't hate them because they have a cabbage for a head.

Stop hating cabbage; my Polish ancestors have suffered enough.
