MLB sees the blueprint, and of course, monkey see monkey do.
A day after floating the possibility of ESPN giving Alex Rodriguez his own broadcast in the same vein as the Manning brother’ successful “Monday Night Football” show, Andrew Marchand of the New York Post is reporting the network is moving forward with the idea, pairing the former MVP with Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay.
“The complete shake-up of “Sunday Night Baseball” will end with the TV voice of the Yankees, Michael Kay, being a part of the Alex Rodriguez “Manningcast” on ESPN, according to sources.
The creation of Kay-Rod means that Rodriguez will not be on weekly “Sunday Night Baseball” telecasts anymore.
The new SNB team will consist of YES’ David Cone and Eduardo Perez as analysts, while Karl Ravech will be the play-by-player. Cone is expected to stay at YES, though his schedule will be reduced.
Meanwhile, longtime ESPN SNB reporter Buster Olney’s role on the main telecast is in question, The Post has learned.

The “Kay-Rod” duo will reportedly call 10-12 games out of ESPN’s 25-week “Sunday Night Baseball” schedule. Playoff games could also be in the mix depending on how the current collective bargaining agreement negotiations go.
The Manning brothers are special, they have a chemistry you can’t replicate.
