Jorge retiring is dramatic enough. But now you're telling me I'm not going to get to see Kim Jones on YES anymore? Now that's a nice kick in the dick to start my morning.
According to Neil Best, Kim was offered a contract by YES but turned it down to "explore other opportunities." Unless those other opportunities involve her and Chris Carlin replacing Joe and Evan on the midday slot on WFAN, then that is just unacceptable. Kim is the best. And truth be told, I'm really not interested in seeing Nancy Newman get pied on the field after a walk-off win. And Jack Curry? He's my man, but there's no way he's going to rock an outfit like Kim.
Only 7:30 in the morning and the day is already a downer. Oh well. Here's to the happier times.
