Kay signs multi-year extension with YES

Not a fan of YES broadcaster Michael Kay? Well then today is definitely not your lucky day. The television voice of the Yankees has reached an agreement on a multi-year extension with YES to continue serving as the lead play-by-play man for their Yankees’ broadcasts, the network announced today. Kay will also continue to serve his various other roles for the network, including hosting Center Stage.

Believe it or not, I’m pretty apathetic on the topic of Kay’s game calling skills. He’s got his quirks, not all of which are endearing, but that’s true of any broadcaster outside of a select few. He’s not in the top tier of game callers around the league by any means, but he’s also far from the worst, which is good enough for me. Congratulations to him on the new contract.

    I am a HUGE Yankee fan but I absolutely loathe Michael Kay and I just dont understand how people dont see the total phoniness of that man. He totally ruins games for me but i love my yankees too much not to watch the game. My happiest days are those travel days when i am relieved from having to listen to his inane and pointless comments

  2. It could be worse. You could live outside NY and not have access to YES network, and be stuck at the mercy of ESPN and such for your Yankee broadcast fix. Kay can't be harder to listen to than Joe Morgan.

      Joe Morgan doesn't announce games on ESPN anymore? Thank god. Couldn't stand Jon Miller either. They were so biased against the Yankees, I had to watch the games mute. The commentators they have these days are much better, in my opinion.

    Sterling makes Kay sound like Vin Scully.
