Curt Schilling shared his thoughts on YES Network’s Michael Kay during his talk about Aaron Judge’s 61st home run Wednesday night in Toronto.
When appearing on OutKick’s “Don’t @ Me with Dan Dakich,” Schilling wasn’t a fan of how Kay didn’t let the moment “breathe” as Judge walked past the bases.
“I just wanted to see and feel the moment,” he said. “I didn’t need Michael Kay to explain to me that he just hit his 61st home run and it was more than anyone since Roger Maris. We all knew it. So shut up and let the moment breathe.”

Schilling, a three-time World Series champion, has aired his own experience after years of standing at ESPN. And at that time he explained what he was taught.
“I’ve always learned, one of the things that I think helped me in the booth was that there are moments that speak for themselves,” he said. “I thought that was one of them. He could have said everything he said afterwards. Anyone who watched the match knew exactly what was happening. They knew what the number was. But it’s also a partial representation of the announcers from today.”

Schilling did admit, however, that there is “personal bias” on his side when it comes to Kay, who has been the Yankees’ play-by-play announcer at YES since 2002. Kay’s first foray into mentioning Yankees games came in the seat next to John Sterling during 1992 radio broadcasts on WABC.

Kay will be called up for that game, as Amazon Prime Video allows YES to have a simulcast of the game, although Kay and his team would still have named the game anyway.
