I Would Love To Slap Michael Kay Silly

Raise your hand if you're sick of hearing Michael Kay refer to the trio of Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain, and Ian Kennedy as "Generation Trey?" That has to be the dumbest nickname I've ever heard. And he says it over and over and over, obviously trying to get it to catch on. Memo to Mike: It ain't going to happen. Give it up and quit while you're ahead. A very weak effort on his part.
Almost as bad, but not quite, is "The Three Amigos." It's overplayed and has been done. Very unoriginal. There should only be one "Three Amigos" and that's Lucky Day, Dusty Bottoms, and Ned Nederlander.

If I may I'd like to suggest "The Triumvirate." For those not familiar with the word, it means: 1.Roman History. the office or magistracy of a triumvir.
2.a government of three officers or magistrates functioning jointly.
3.a coalition of three magistrates or rulers for joint administration.
4.any association of three in office or authority.
5.any group or set of three.

Any association of three in authority. A coalition of three rulers for joint administration. Yeah, I like that.

Kennedy gets the ball tonight against the Rays so I'm sure Kay will name drop "Generation Trey" at least 5 or so times. Whoever is in the booth needs to just smack him across the face every time he says it. Am I the only one that can't stand the name?

Peace, love and Pinstripes,
