In one corner, we have Francesa. Expert on everything with extra special expertise in: Yankees, heart, Kennedy, "max protect schemes", Parcells, other Presidents, Diet Coke, horses and "big spots". Famous blowhard; recently split from radio partner of 19 years.
In the other corner, Michael Kay. Famous Yankee announcer; face of the YES Network; documented allegiance to the Yankee brass; excellent pitch man for upcoming ESPN/1050 programming. Famous blowhard also famous for the WORST end of show sign-off ever and expert in making my skin crawl when he lusts after women 25 years his junior.
Both huge Yankee guys. Both from NY. Neither guy has a grasp on baseball stats that are conjured up by bloggers living in their parents basement. Both fellows think Derek Jeter's sweat eliminates the suffering of children everywhere and that Randy Johnson was a bust in NY. Man, these guys sound like twin brothers, huh! In fact, they're very similar, to me. Except, Francesa's agenda is Francesa and friends of Francesa and Kay's agenda is the Yankees and ESPN.
I will say, Joey Salvia seems pretty funny. so that's good. It's immediately counteracted by that whining, unoriginal Donnie Pucks, so that's bad.
I cast my vote for Francesa. I just think he's better than Kay and he's not pushing anything on me that comes down from above.
What do you all think? Is the Kay show really better than Mike'd Up at this point?
