Toronto Sports Media Sports Radio Lineups

by RobG

Watching last nights Toronto Blue Jays State of the Franchise event at the Rogers Centre (streamed on Sportsnet) didn’t reveal much. Beeston et al continue to preach that the club will continue to improve, with Beeston believing that the Jays will be in the playoff hunt 2 or 3 times in the next 5 years. That means Jays fans will have to remain patient this year. The one interesting snippet was the club exploring the possbility of real grass at Rogers Centre.

Here’s your drive home lineups

So what park was it that Bob McCown hit it out of exactly? The clowns on this site, including the incompetent host( and I don’t say that lightly Jonah; you’re a Fan fan and it shows), couldn’t say enough about how Bob broke the story of Sidney Crosby’s fractured vertebrae in his neck. Problem is, that’s not what Crosby’s injury is. It’s a soft tissue injury, one that the Penguins knew about . McCown is a very good host, but he sucks at breaking news. You morons want to know why? IT’S NOT HIS JOB. For what it’s worth, the folks at Sportsnet were all over themselves fellating McCown as well. Just check out Cox’s tweets and Millard’s continuing to credit McCown with breaking the story tonight. Can’t wait to see the corrections.

Just throwing this out there – what do you guys think of this Beeston notion that the dome could become a natural grass, baseball specific stadium?

Personally, I think it’d be awesome. Not sure what would happen with the Argos though..

The Rogers Centre will never be a baseball specific stadium, it could be a shitty concrete cavern with real grass though.

That would be great, I would consider it a huge positive. As a fan of TFC and watching them at BMO, i seen the difference of the plastic stuff and natural grass, and it’s night and day. From game quality to visually, to even something like the smell of natural grass freshly watered to the rubber smell that had before. It would have the same positive benefits to the baseball experience. That would show me they are serious about a baseball team and not just a program for their multi-platforms.

I was listening to TSNR, they talked about how Beeston said the Jays will have multiple playoff apperances in the next half decade. I guess that’s our timeline.

Early on Cybulski show something intersting was said. They wondered if Jays ownership had trouble with money because they bought MLSE. Then mentioned that TSN was in a hiring freeze after buying MLSE and the thought of putting Cybulski show on TV was put on the shelf. I guess they would put the show on TSN2 (i figure) I actually like ESPN Sportsnation thats on now on TSN2, even though Cowherd annoying as heck but Beadle makes up for it. I like the concept of the show.

Not to be a apologist for McCowan I sure he can defend himself but when he first reported this on saturday with Malard he said “they found an amorality between the C1-C2 vertebrae” at no time did he mention the word fracture… not sure who first mention fracture..

Bob was spinning this afternoon about what he did and did not say on Saturday.

He also mentioned (to no one’s surprise I think) that Sidney’s agent was a source on the story. I don’t know Bresson would have had to gain by giving Bob bad information/

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
