    The Pinetar Rag offers some comments on Suzyn Waldman:

    Good News Yank fans–they have re-signed former showgirl and Boston native, Suzyn Waldman, to work with Sterling on the radio. So now, when you want a middle aged woman who’s experience was high kicks and jazz hands, to tell you that Randy Johnson isn’t getting “awn tawp of his sloyduh”, you’ll get those valuable insights for another year.

    Damn, that’s funny.

      I’m so glad I live well within the YES Network broadcasting area. Sterling and Waldman make it painful to listen to Yankee games on the radio.

      The constant sponsorships (e.g. Benihana sponsoring Matsui’s ABs, GEICO sponsoring the 15th AB) make it tough to listen to as well. But I’ll take the sponsorships over Waldman. I don’t mind Sterling, but maybe that’s because I’m comparing him to her.

      I was listening to a game on XM last year, and my wife’s first comment was “what’s with the old lady?”

      To be fair, YES does the same thing with sponsors. The scoreboard, the pitcher’s scouting report, the play of the game, the “caught stealing,” the highlight of the game, etc., etc. EVERY aspect of the game is brought to you by SOMEONE.

      I don’t listen to the radio too often, but I just don’t like the sound of Waldman’s voice. She sounds like she has half-masticated food in her mouth. It’s also annoying to hear someone — just like with Kay — be critical of athletes when 1) they are fat and/or frail and 2) have no personal experience in sports.

      When Ken Singleton calls a game, everything he says comes with the knowledge of how hard it is to succeed on this level. When Kay or Waldman do it, it’s with that tone of what someone “should” do — as if it’s like flipping a switch. That’s what drives me insane.
