The Absurdity is Crazy

In the middle of the open of MMD today, Mike made an awkward transition to a sponsored interview with Derek Jeter. Now hold on a minute. Willie Randolph just got fired in the middle of the night, in what the national media is calling one of the most atrocious moves in managerial history. And they have to go to a Derek Jeter interview 5 minutes into the show? Are you kidding me? I don't care if this was the only time Jeter could do it. Say you are not interested and just read the promo for the event. Going to Jeter in the middle of that segment is a complete and utter HORRIFIC job by Mike and the Mad Dog. They would kill other broadcasters for doing the same thing.

Sorry FTLT, i can't get go too crazy with Mike and Chris on this one. WFAN is tied to the event and the promo and I am betting that they had no other time that they could do it and that they had to talk to Jeter and that Jeter is not the kind of guy that they can say, "hey Derek, can we reschedule this for say, next Friday?" I think that they had no choice and had to do it. I wouldn't get too upset about it. You will have about 5 more hours to talk about Willie.
