On the 5pm update on 590 it was said “reports” are saying Michal Handzus has been traded to the Blackhawks. Yes, reports, otherwise known as Bob McKenzie who tweeted it an hour before.

Jeff Blair has a book, “Full Count: Four Decades of Bluejay Baseball”, coming out tomorrow(e book), April 9(hardcover). If the book is as entertaining as the excerpt in the Globe, it’s a must read for Jays’ fans.

Jeff Blair has apparently penned a great book. Here is the blurb on

“Full Count is the book Jays fans have been waiting for. Jeff Blair nails the twin goals of any successful author, telling stories loaded with flair and detail and gaining tremendous access to the principals who could shed the most light on the past four decades of baseball in Toronto. Not a Jays die-hard? No problem. With tales of boardroom dealings, team-building strategies, and vivid storytelling, Blair, like Joe Carter twenty years before him, touches ’em all.”

I’m sure that Blair’s book is fine, but have you ever read a publisher’s blurb that says something bad?

There are times when people write such blurbs without even reading the book.

No need to be crude. This is a children’s show you know.

What you do with your “friends” is your business.

The NHL has chosen TSN over Sportsnet.
NHL Network in the US will simulcast TSN’s TradeCentre ’13 coverage.

Hockey Central is perfect with MacLean, Kypreos, and Millard. Why bring in Bruce Garrioch today and ruin the chemistry?

Cathal Kelly looks with fresh eyes at the Kevin Ware injury and writes:

“The athletes don’t just accept injury, they understand how crucial it is to the entire experience. A man who goes through his career without ever being banged up is someone who risked less than others. This is where The Code we’re always talking about in hockey starts.

Most athletes are not moral exemplars. But they all risk themselves daily, which is why we still see them as such.

Every once in a while, some poor unfortunate must prove to us again how risky this business is, and thereby confirm our belief that they are somehow more than us.”

The NHL network is owned by TSN, so that’s not really a surprise.

Buster Olney tweets that Robinson Cano has changed agents, from Scott Boras to Jay Z. He is the first to report.

Sports Illustrated and Fox Sports report the change, but in both articles they give credit to Buster for breaking the story.

They don’t ignore that he broke the story, or try to hide the fact, or report that one of their own reporters also tweeted the story. Both competing sites give credit to where it’s due.

In the end, it doesn’t matter because both sites offer their own opinion or commentary on the story, and both offer further indepth analysis.

I wish the Canadian sports networks would take a lead from their American counterparts and act like professionals and adults in their chosen profession.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
