It's not great at this point, but it looks to me like he's just goofing and being silly. I think it would be less distracting in a studio with less ambient noise around. Would love to see a supercut of all his questions and the first second of people's reactions to them, once there were enough of them in the can.

Liked "Foul Territory" when it was underground, he sniffed.

thecpt: 20x better than Michael Kay.



I actually like Michael Kay, the one reason I pay for my MLB subscription is simply to watch the Yankees broadcast. I am not saying he's the best, but when you have Paul O'neal and topics like his water cooler beatings come up, it makes it well worth it, Flash and David Cone as well.
Michael Kay doesn't pretend to play in the Majors, however he asks questions most people would ask if they didn't know about the game "in this situation flash, what would you do?"

I heard my share of announcers, Giants have some good ones and the Dodgers, Rays have by far the worst, as well as Chicago White sox (my opinion sorry)

/As for tex, if he keeps at it and learns, he can probably take a booth spot after he retires, he looks like he's enjoying it

Well yeah of course Kay says stupid shiat, but he's got some great ball players around him to pretty much bail him out - places like Tampa bay - they have some terrible broadcasters because its the same two idiots over and over where the yankees pretty much have a rotated broadcast.

/least favorite pair is Ken and Michael, Any time Paul o'neal comes on and mentions his golf game, I drink!

If you're talking about Hawk, then it's not your opinion - it's fact.  He is the nadir of broadcasting.

I'd watch a few more episodes of that

You can tell Kay completely reveres O'Neill (I would, too), but is having the time of his life because he can tease O'Neill mercilessly and O'Neill will either give it back or dig himself deeper into a hole.  The best is when Leiter is in the booth with them, because he isn't above being completely exasperated at something goofy one of them might have said.

Oh yeah, and these clips are great.  I had no idea Tex was doing this.

The one thing I really don't like is when they have John Flaherty in the booth and he gets pissed at Michael Kay, it can get uncomfortable.  It's so obvious he hates Kay, I don't know how he kept that job.  Maybe that's why you see him mostly in the studio now.

I think it's because Flaherty really likes to hear him talk.  He has some good insights, but he can't shut up.

I love when it's Kay-Cone-O'Neill.  It becomes a free-for-all at that point, with Cone trying to throw in some sabermetrics just to show that at least someone did some research before the game.

Yes, those three are the best, for sure.
