Like the Twins on the field, former Twin Jim Kaat, who is 83 years old, is exactly who we think he is: a stupid old man.
Kaat called Yankees pitcher Nestor Cortes “Nestor the Molester” during yesterday’s broadcast. Minnesota wasn’t even playing the Yankees, so Kaat had to wander pretty far to stick his foot in his mouth.
This isn’t the first time Kaat’s fucked up—sometimes those racist references just slip right out. Maybe we should stop giving octogenarians broadcast jobs? Just a thought, seeing as it never seems to go well.
