He will be in triple-mute position — no speaking, no clearing his throat and he is not even supposed to burp.
After that, Kay hopes to be back to work as the TV voice of the Yankees and the host of his WEPN ESPN 98.7 New York afternoon talk show a month from now, he told The Post via text. Whether he will go back to full-time work right away is still to be determined.

According to the Post's Andrew Marchand, Ryan Ruocco performed well in Sterling’s place in Tampa last weekend, creating a nice flow with analyst Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.
Ruocco had only done two baseball games professionally on radio before the four games, though he had called around 10 when he was in college at Fordham. He sounded very comfortable and informative in the booth.
Sterling will retire one day, notes Marchand. Ruocco, 32, is a lifelong Yankee fan, and would figure to be a candidate for what could be a dream job.
