Since Mikey is on sabbatical yet again, in the heat of a pennant race, we figured we would pick up the slack for WFAN. Here is what Mike would likely have said today if he actually worked in the summer:
"Well folks, this is what you wait for. Beautiful day. Great day to be at Saratoga. But today is what we have waited for. The Yanks and Boston in a dog fight. Mets and Phils also. But let’s face it folks. Today is all about the Yankees. We’ll get to your Met calls next week. Today is about the dramah of the Yanks and Red Sox. The Olympics are over. The NBC guys called me all weekend about the ratings. But today is about the Yanks. The run starts tonight. Everyone has buried them. Said the season’s over. There used to be a guy sitting next to me who said the same thing. He is no more. Today is a Yankee day. And who better to take the ball tonight than Andy. Andy is gonna pitch a big game because that’s what Andy does. That’s his history. Cano is showing that he still has a bunch of hits left in that bat. Everyone wanted to kill the Yankee season, but let’s face it folks, they are only 5 out, with 6 left against Boston. And don’t forget, that is a totally different Boston team without Beckett and Manny. That team has to prove they can play in a big spot without those two. All you Yankee haters, all the members of the crack committee – Be CAREFUL. The run starts tonight. Also, we're still working on the new jingle."
