Per the NY Post - Alex Rodriguez is being removed from the Sunday Night Baseball booth... sorta

Instead they are going to be giving him his own version of the "Manning Cast"

David Cone is the leading candidate to replace A-Rod on the actual broadcast (The complete booth would be Karl Ravech, Cone and Eduardo Perez)

The deal has been officially announced - they were waiting till after the stock market closed to make it

It is supposed to be finalized by the end of the first quarter of 2022

In the statement - the Times is claiming that the Athletic will continue to operate separately. However...

Quote

The Athletic’s founders, Alex Mather and Adam Hansmann, will remain on board following the acquisition, though each will now report to Times Company executive David Perpich, who will be named The Athletic’s publisher.

This is all now official

A-Rod will do 8 Sunday night games on ESPN2 that is called Kay-Rod because he will be doing the show with Michael Kay

Kay and A-Rod will be the primary broadcast on 2 other Sunday night games

Apparently the 8 "Kay-Rod" games will be "rivalry" games so assume Yanks/Red Sox, Yanks/Mets, Cards/Cubs, Dodgers/Giants for half of them

Side note - the Sunday Night Baseball radio broadcast this year will be Jon "Boog" Sciambi and Doug Glanville

(FYI, it's Chris Sheridan)

Do you remember years back when Joe Bedingo on WFAN interviewed Phil Niekro and he asked how his brother Joe was doing only to be informed he had in fact passed away a few years prior?

So apparently Michelle Tafoya is getting her career advice from Jason Whitlock and Will Cain.  Let's see how this will turn out

Side note - today was the day that I learned that Tafoya's guest spot on the View was so bad that the audience booed her during the taping twice and the producers literally played her off going into one commercial break
