Let's get this out of the way early: Cory Wade has been excellent for the Yankees this season. He's appeared in 21 games and given up an earned run in just four of them. After his scoreless 1.1 innings against the Angels on Wednesday, Wade is sporting just a 2.34 ERA.
Okay, now on to the one complaint: Cory Wade says “you know” a lot. Like, A LOT.
In a two minute video clip shown on the YES Network website Wade used the phrase 39 times. And that wasn't the entire interview.
Here's the clip:
And here's the breakdown:
First question – 9
Second question – 8
Third question – 7
Fourth question – 3
Fifth question – 3
Sixth question - 6
Seventh question – 3
The first three questions came from YES reporter Meredith Marakovits. She got 24 of the 39 'you know's.
Maybe Wade just thought she knew.
