Is there no one at YES willing to save Michael Kay — and YES’s viewers— from Michael Kay? When he’s not forcing belly laughs or reading any and every stat he can — “Vernon Wells, with two hits, tonight, now 8-for-16 in July” — Kay continues to make bad guesses, then speaks them as fabricated “facts.”
In the bottomof the fourth inning of Tuesday’s Royals-Yankees game, a graphic showed the AL Central standings with Kansas City in third place, six back, at 42-44.
“They are right there,” Kay needlessly added. “They got off to a slow start but they are just five back in the loss column to the Tigers.”
Slow start? The Royals began 17-10! In fact, on May 5 they were a half-game out of first, which was when another big-time, big-town, bad-guess artist, Mike Francesa, expertly declared them to be a strong club that would be in it for the long haul.
Need I write more? The Royals proceeded to lose 22 of their next 28 games.
While we’re at it, on Wednesday, Francesa said Mets righty Zack Wheeler, according to his own superior knowledge and what he “has been told” (There are those voices again!), isn’t ready for the majors. Later that day, Wheeler shut out the Giants for 6 2/3 innings in a 7-2 win.
Social media escapes these two buffoons.
