Michael Kay Scary Yankees lineup only ge
på: December 14, 2018, 08:57

Michael Kay watches more Yankees baseball than any TV broadcaster. What the YES Network play-by-play announcer is seeing from the 2018 Baby Bombers is downright frightening for the rest of Major League Baseball.The Yankees (24-10) and Red Sox Phillies Cool Base Red Jersey (25-9) bringthe two best records in baseball into the start of a three-game series Tuesday night atYankee Stadium (YES; 7:05 p.m. ET).Led by Mookie Betts and key free-agent signing J.D. Martinez, the Red Sox got off to a blistering start.MORE: Yankees look good in SN's May Power RankingsBut the Yankees, led by Didi Gregorius, Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stantonand Gary Sanchez, are coming on strong,Kay said. Don't forget, theBronx Bombers are still mi sing lefty-swinging first baseman Greg Bird to go with the power-hitting Judge, Sanchez and Stanton. Add in dynamic rookie Gleyber Torres and the Yankees are off to their best start in 15 years."Their lineup is scary," Kay told Sporting News. "They're doing this without Greg Bird and Stanton hasn't really hit yet Jim Thome Jersey . I don't know any pitcher that'sgoing to want to pitch to that lineup. Theres no break. I mean, theres absolutely no break." The Yankees boast young aceLuis Severino and old pro CC Sabathia at the top of their rotation, but Kay figures general manager Brian Cashman will look to add a big-time starter by the trade deadline. The Yankees have the chips to swing a deal, namely young prospects such as outfielder Clint Frazier."I think they probably need one more [starting pitcher]. This way they have Severino, andthat big pitcher, to go against the two [opposing]pitchers in the playoff series," Kay said. "So I think Tug McGraw Jersey [Cashman] probably does. He certainly has the collateral for it with all the players in the minor leagues."FAGAN: Five things to watch asSox and Yanks do battleThe intriguing po sibility that Judge and Stanton will form a latter-day Mickey Mantle-Roger Maris home-run duo in the Bronx is helping drive TV interest in the Yankees. YES is seeing the results.18 games without a day off 16 victories 3 walk-offs 3 sweeps What a run it has been for the New York @Yankees YES Network (@YESNetwork) May 7, 2018The network's game ratingswere up 9 percentthrough April 30 from the same period last year. Nine game telecasts have already scored 4.0 TV ratings or higher compared with three during the same period in 2017. Ratings for YES's simulcast of "The Michael Kay Show," which airs on ESPN Radio, are up 21 percent. Fans viewed 18 million Yankeesvideos over YES's digital platform in April, up 160 percentfrom last year.The continuing question is when Stanton, the reigning National League MVP who pounded 59 homersand drove in 132 runs last season, will snap out of his funk.The big sluggeris hitting a meager .227 with seven homersand 19 RBIs through May 7.Will Stanton end up being Reggie Jackson, a star who embraced Richie Ashburn Jersey New York, or another Ed Whitson, who wilted under the bright lights of the Big Apple?Kay thinks aStanton bust-out is just a matter of time. Stanton is not only adjusting to different positions, he's adjusting to being aDH in the American League."Hes never done that before," Kaysaid."Some guys have a hard time adjusting to it, because you cant make a play in the field to take your mind off what you just did at the bat. Youre always thinking in the clubhouse about what you did. Youre probably fixated on it. So thats an Jackie Robinson Jersey adjustment, too."Sundays Indians-Yankees game was YES 4th-Highest-Rated Weekend Telecast Since 2012 YES Network (@YESNetwork) May 7, 2018But a turnaround will come, Kay said."I dont think hes going to wilt under the pre sure. This is certainly a different stage and a different animal. I don'tknow if you can ever expect somebody to hit 59 home runs again," he said."But I think when you look up he will be near the league leaders in home runs and over 100 RBIs. Hes going to be what they thought he was going to be."
