Kay Is Gay
Michael Kay was in attendance of the Saturday Mets/Yankee game at Shea Stadium. During his trip to Queens, the Shea faithful let him know that he sucks, started the chant Kay is Gay, Kay is Gay, and chastised him for the Miguel Cairo deal in his face after Cairo went deep. Classic stuff. He also mentioned that he was there with a very good looking girl. I guess simply stating he was there on a date was not good enough, he had to remind everyone he got a date with a girl out of his league simply because he is a hack announcer.
I mean really, what would any self respecting girl be doing with a guy who's head resembles a fruit best know for getting Absolute Vodka poured into it at high school parties so upperclassman guys can defile the underclassman girls?
I personally think he got off easy with the fact that Mets were beating up on a hapless Randy Johnson and he is a jackass. He should be so lucky that I was not around because all bets are off if you are a Yankee fan entering the Mets home turf. I've been known to taunt kids with single digits ages for making the mistake of wearing a Yankee hat by my seat.
"Those things happen. I'm not upset at all," Martinez said of consecutive errors by David Wright and Jose Reyes that opened the door for the Yankees. "I'm not out there just to win. I would love to, but I'm out there to give my team the best chance to win."
"This time I had more fans behind me and less middle fingers pointed at me," he said. "Less hate words."
“I see a guy who’s in search of his swing,” the AL scout said. “It looks like he’s trying to find something. I kind of like that about a player who’s trying to get something to work. If he had 16 bombs, we wouldn’t be talking right now.”
Tough call here. He looked far from the bag, but it was not dirty like when Tony Womack pulled down Jose Reyes on Sunday, but I guess since he touched the bag he was allowed to do whatever else he felt necessary to impede Jose.
"Put 'I suck' with a big picture of my face on it."
Owning up to it is nice, but production is better.
Felix Heredia's circulatory troubles have worsened and the southpaw isn't expected to return soon.
Why he has not been removed to clear up a 40 man roster spot is anyone's guess, but enough is enough already.
- Lastings Milledge continues to be on fire, though he is not really hitting for much power yet. He went 3 for 3 to bring his average up to .296 in St. Lucie's loss last night. More importantly, this season he has ten walks in 29 games and owns a .377 OBP. Brett Harper smacked his 16th homerun of the year and leads the league in homers.
- Hagerstown lost to Lexington 2-1, but Matt Durkin was solid in his 4.1 innings of work. He struck out six, walked three, gave up four hits, and one earned run in 4.1 innings.
- In Norfolk's victory last night, Victor Diaz went 2 for 4 with three RBIs, two runs scored, and a homerun. Jose Santiago got the start and went five innings, gave up three hits, one run, no walks, and K'd three.
