It Is Not The Yankees, But The Media

May 4, 2016

I criticize their back and forth media and fans, too critical of the team when they lose and far too cocky when they win.

The over confidence was epitomized by The (Yankees) Yes Network’s Michael Kay, who in 1988 as a beat writer guaranteed a division title for the Yankees but was wrong.

In 2003, with the Yankees up 2 games to 1 in the World Series vs the Florida Marlins, he said the Marlins did not belong on the same field with the Yankees. Maybe it was the opposite but I, unlike Kay and so many in the media will not go to extremes, but the Marlins did win the last three games of the World Series and the title.

“Rinse and repeat,” in 2010 when Kay, after the Yankees won the ALCS opener at Texas vs the Rangers, again guaranteed a Yankees’ victory and was wrong. Texas won their first American League Pennant in 6 games.
