Michael Kay: Waiting For Aaron Judge’s 62nd Home Run ‘Got Really Really Old’

“I guess everyone that wanted to see it was watching YES or the MLB Network and those that didn’t want to see it didn’t want to see it, so they wouldn’t be bothered with it.”

Aaron Judge finally paid off the hype on Tuesday night in Arlington when he hit his 62nd home run, the most in a single season for any American League player in history. If fans thought they got sick of waiting for it to happen, just imagine how Michael Kay felt.

The television voice of the Yankees joined The Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday morning and said that he was as frustrated as everyone else. Preparing for a moment that could happen at any time requires a lot of juggling for a broadcaster.

“It became a little trying for everybody, and I am sure for the viewers as well Dan, because you’re doing television,” Kay said. “You know this is going to be a stand-alone at bat if he hits the home run, so you’ve got to layer all the important parts, you know, what’s coming up. And you know, we were also welcoming in a national audience that was joining us on ESPN and MLB Network. There was a lot of that bookkeeping to do. So after a while, it got really really old.”

Kay says he was not shielded from the criticism of the coverage Judge’s chase received. In fact, he did not disagree with the people that were turned off by the narrative that Aaron Judge’s 62 home runs was the new home run record despite Barry Bonds hitting 73 home runs in 2001.

“A lot of people were saying, and this was spurred on by Rober Maris Jr, who is a real gentleman, that this is the real record. It’s not the real record. Even Aaron Judge says it’s not the real record. The real record is Barry Bonds.”

He was also very aware of how frustrated college football fans were the last two Saturdays as games were interrupted on ESPN networks to show Judge’s at-bats. He noted that “negativity has a louder megaphone than anything positive,” but added that the message was clear.

“I guess everyone that wanted to see it was watching YES or the MLB Network and those that didn’t want to see it didn’t want to see it, so they wouldn’t be bothered with it.”

The United States has been eliminated from the 2022 World Cup, and FOX Sports Radio host Doug Gottlieb believes that will return the sport back to its usual place inside the sports media landscape.

“I’m sure people in the soccer world are still talking about the World Cup,” Gottlieb said on his In The Bonus podcast Monday. “But zero people I know in real life are talking about the World Cup today.

“You can tell me how big soccer is in the world — and I’m not gonna dispute it — and you can tell me we’re doing better in the world than we’ve ever done — and I’m not gonna dispute it, it’s fine — but the fact is that as soon as that match was over we went from a couple of hours of soccer guy, or writer guy who’s really a soccer guy at heart, talking about should we change coaches, tactics, players, or whatever, and then it’s over. I don’t know who won and I don’t care.”

Gottlieb later added that soccer has been “the sport of the future” for his entire life, but added that college basketball is going on right now, and it isn’t on the national sports radar, either.

94WIP afternoon host Jon Marks has revealed he is working without a contract.

A report from CrossingBroad.com claims Marks mentioned the development on the air two weeks ago, and Marks confirmed the news when the outlet asked him for comment.

He did not, however, wish to say much more about the situation. WIP is currently in the midst of changes to its lineup due to the upcoming departure of legendary morning host Angelo Cataldi.

In late October, the station announced the current midday show of Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie would replace Cataldi in the mornings. Longtime morning co-host Al Morganti will remain with the station but will no longer be heard in mornings once DeCamara and Ritchie take over. Anchor Rhea Hughes will stay in the morning timeslot.

The station has yet to name a new midday show to replace DeCamara and Ritchie. Marks is currently teamed with former NFL linebacker Ike Reese from 2:00-6:00 PM. The two were paired together in 2017.

Monday Night Football got off to an energetic start last night, with the usually reserved Joe Buck showcasing an exuberant attitude while discussing the weather and the fact that the calendar has already flipped to December. WFAN morning host Boomer Esiason wondered if there was an ulterior motive to Buck’s raucous start.

In addition to the energy exuded by the Monday Night Football announcer, Buck nearly howeld in excitement as the network showcased Tom Brady’s usual scream of “Let’s F—ing Go!”, by shouting “Yeah! Let’s go! I can’t say one of those words!”

The excitement was noticed by Boomer & Gio update anchor Jerry Recco who played the audio for the show, with Boomer Esiason wondering if Buck was proving a point to someone.

“Maybe somebody told him he was too downcast the previous broadcast,” Esiason wondered. “Maybe he was doing that emphatically because somebody criticized him as flat or something.”
