Raissman: This may be Jim Kaat's last season on YES
And if it is, the best thing to do is pay attention and realize what has made him so good for so many years.
Kaat's inclination to play it straight, and be definitive, is often in sharp contrast to other sounds coming out of the YES booth.
Like Wednesday night, when Jorge Posada began running his mouth after being plunked on the elbow by Jason Johnson in the sixth inning.
Without hesitating, Kaat said: "Jorge overreacted there. I can't imagine any reason why Johnson would want to hit him in a two-run game, a man on first and nobody out." NY Daily News
- Kaat did a pre-game piece the other day & said how embarrassing it was to have to deliver his report in the midst of what was going on behind him. I'm not sure what he meant, but perhaps the batting practice show has gone awry or something. Anyway, he was quite angry.
