Michael Kay Rants About Aaron Boone, Eduardo Perez After Yankees Season-Ending Loss

The New York Yankees season came to an end over the weekend, and many are now looking to assign blame for where things went wrong. Many targets have been acquired, but Yankees television announcer and radio host Michael Kay wasn’t thrilled with how some media members acted as the season came to a close.

Kay took issue with the Yankees “mental skills coach” putting together a video of the 2004 Red Sox coming back from a 3-0 ALCS deficit. The 2004 Red Sox accomplished that feat against the Yankees.

“How in baseball God’s name can you be so tone deaf as an organization as if to do that?,” he asked during The Michael Kay Show Monday. “How can you be that tone deaf? Talk about bad optics, are you out of your mind? I talked to three players from the ’04 team, they were outraged by the fact that their failure was being used as motivation for the 2022 team. How could you do that? It would be like somebody from (Abraham) Lincoln’s family and you’re trying to teach them about shootings in theaters, and you use their dad as an example of how to avoid it. I mean, are you out of your mind?!”

Kay then turned his attention to the actions of ESPN Radio analyst Eduardo Perez for facetiming Red Sox great David Ortiz during a production meeting with Boone.

“I know Eduardo Perez tried to walk it back about how they were joking around about the Philadelphia Eagles or whatever — Aaron Boone has to say to David Ortiz or Eduardo ‘thank you, but no, we’re not going there’. And here’s the amazing thing, Don (LaGreca) and Peter (Rosenberg): They told the media! They told the media!” Kay reiterated. “Aaron Boone told the media, ‘Oh yeah, we put together a tape of the ’04 Red Sox.’ Oh my goodness. I hate to do it! I hate to do it, I hate to do it because I don’t want it done on the show: if George Steinbrenner were alive today, somebody would be fired.”

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.”
