    This is not a prediction. I don't know what's in his heart. I'm just saying it's plausible he might.

    I like Kay alright. He and Sterling were the team on WABC when I was a teenager in early 90s and would be able to get the Yankees night games on AM radio in South Carolina. Good memories.

    I wish Singlton would change his mind and lot leave.......he is great with Rucco and would be a great mentor for him.

    I'm Just used to Kay now. I like When Kenny and Cone do the games alone.
    I like Rucco.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way. I don't mind Kay but I can't stand Ruocco...

    I'm neutral on Kay, always have liked Singleton (wish he would stay) and probably like many others here, I watch Ruocco on mute with music playing in the background. Growing up in the 70's and 80's, I certainly miss Rizzuto, White and Messer.

    Poor Ruocco so hated before he really gets his baseball announcing career in full swing.

    I do, too, but honestly, Scooter was horrible. I mean, I loved the man like a strange Uncle, but he was a terrible announcer. "Pete's Bakery over in Hillside sent up a beautiful box of cannolis. And, Holy cow, these things are good. I don't normally like when they add chocolate chips to the filling, but these are just perfect. Hey. Holy Cow, there are two outs. Wonder what happened."

    White and Messer needed to be there to tell you about the game, because Scooter was generally busy with other things. The scorecards used to stay in place in the booth, and they used to say that when they followed Scooter over to the radio booth, there would be a handful of notations saying "DSI." That was Scooter's shorthand for "didn't see it."

    I disagree. Rizzuto was a wonderful announcer, he just wasn’t a good baseball announcer. He did a great radio show, though. Did you know that North By Northwest was his favorite movie? And holy cow, he was listening to the ninth inning when he was driving home yesterday, and he couldn’t believe it!

    IIRC, the notation was WW, for Wasn’t Watching.
