ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball ‘Manningcast’ Featuring A-Rod Sounds Terrible

ESPN will create an MLB version of “Manningcast” for Sunday Night Baseball, starring Alex Rodriguez.

In 2021, ESPN had a huge hit with the “Manningcast” on Monday Night Football, with Peyton and Eli Manning watching the game, giving their opinions and interviewing guests. The network is set to create another version of the “Manningcast,” but for Sunday Night Baseball, and it can be a tough sell for some baseball fans.

According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, the Sunday Night Baseball alternate broadcast will feature Alex Rodriguez and ESPN radio host and YES Network commentator Michael Kay.

ESPN’s MLB ‘Manningcast’ to feature Alex Rodriguez and Michael Kay

This, as Marchand describes in his article, is the network that is shaking up the Sunday Night Baseball broadcast. Rodriguez will no longer be in the main comment booth. Instead, the new team will feature Karl Ravech as a play-by-play commentator, with Eduardo Pérez and David Cone of the YES Network as analysts at the booth.

Rodriguez and Kay are expected to broadcast between 10 and 12 Sunday night baseball games together.

Following his retirement after the 2016 season, Rodríguez entered the world of broadcasting. He served as an analyst in the FOX Sports studio and spent the previous four seasons on Sunday Night Baseball. As for Kay, he is the play-by-play commentator for the New York Yankees on YES Network and the host of “The Michael Kay Show,” on ESPN Radio.

So what do you think of MLB’s reported version of the “Manningcast” with Rodriguez and Kay?
