Hey Fenway, thank you for the thread on Jim Kaat. I'll miss seeing Jim at the park as he was a good friend for the past 30 some years since his days a White Sox. They don't make them like that anymore!

I wish I could see the YES feed tonight but it will be blacked out in favor of NESN.

For whatever reason Kaat got passed over by McCarver for national duty and that was a big loss to fans everywhere

Jamokes:

Do you have any contact info for Jim. He'd be a great WSI interview if I could reach him.

If so e-mail me at mliptak1@msn.com

Thanks,

Lip

Ouch, Ken Singleton will now be the only sane person doing yankmee games.

Kaat was the best I've ever heard explaining the ins and outs of pitching.
Farmio should have spent some of his off day time listening and learning how to be a mlb broadcaster from Kaat instead of hitting the links.
