More Fun with A-Rod
I’m not sure what’s more entertaining — the hourly twists and turns of the Alex Rodriguez saga or the unspoken feud between former radio playmates Michael Kay and John Sterling.
For those who missed it, yesterday afternoon’s sports talk radio in NYC was something of a showdown between “reports” of A-Rod’s meeting with the Yankees. On 660 WFAN, Yankees radio announcer John Sterling told Mike and the Mad Dog that A-Rod returning to the Bronx Bombers was “a done deal” — citing “someone very close to A-Rod”. Meantime, on 1050 ESPNRadio, Michael Kay profusely and persistently refuted any such talk, citing his own “high level source within the Yankee organization — as high as you can go without it being a Steinbrenner”. Unfortunately I can’t find the exact quote online, but Kay also added something to the effect of “anyone reporting that it’s even close to a done deal is absolutely wrong … it’s complete nonsense and not based on factual information.”
So … A-Rod’s back, then he’s not. Or he never was. Or he is.
Ugh … I have a feeling this thing will be playing out for quite a while. But at least it appears the Mets are no longer involved. For now.
