The KayRod broadcast debuted Sunday night during the Red Sox’s game against the Yankees, with Michael Kay and Alex Rodriguez taking center stage. A-Rod stole the show.
The KayRod . broadcast It first appeared in Various reviewswith some disliking it as a stark version of Manningcast’s Monday night football broadcast, only with two men who quite clearly don’t have the same camaraderie as Eli and Peyton.
Such a model is difficult to repeat, but it had its moments. For example, David Ortiz appeared at the grill of his good friend and former competitor, A-Rod, in the middle of the Red Sox-Yankees. As ridiculous as it may be, it was fitting considering the two had faced off in the aforementioned rivalry for over a decade.
But Rodriguez lost most of his fans with one old classic comment which is as wrong as it came.
Alex Rodriguez in today’s match: the more attacks, the better
Are Strikes Catalyzed Literally in Contracts? No, Rodriguez does not say this. However, he complains about focusing on strength rather than connectivity, which forces combatants to strike with a larger clip rather than learning to strike against shift, finding more ways at base.
There is nothing wrong with single, double and so on. But advanced stats place value on the ball’s placement in play, as well as the barrel rate, how hard a player hits the ball and the average hit on the balls that are put into play. And this is only the beginning.
Going out a lot – despite the fact that the K is very high – is not something the hitters choose to do. Thanks in large part to the amazing display in today’s game. Simply slapping the ball in the opposite direction, or hitting it where it isn’t, isn’t easy when the pitcher hits straight on said turn.
