2 hours of phone calls on PTS? I recommend instead hours 2 and 3 of Macko and Cauz with Rick Tocchet, Stu Grimson(this guy became a lawyer?), and Jeff O’Neill. Or Dave Poulin, Kelly Gruber, and Rutgers talk on Brady/Lang-8am hour.

Roger Ebert was not a sports reporter but I think this classic article would speak to them. If you only knew him from tv, discover a great writer.

Wow Brunt on a rant about the Globe article the other day (in the 5pm hour).

April 4, 2013 10:09 pm

Brunt ripped the Globe good.

“The globe would have never sent me to the Dominican to do a story, they’re too cheap to even send someone on a road trip to Cleveland”

It was a fine 10 minute rant. He was pissed his integrity was called into question so good on him. Made for good radio.

Anybody have a link to the Globe article? I don’t read that joke of a publication, but I have to see this article. Was it Dobiggin?

It was a good listen. You don’t hear/see Brunt get so riled up very much. While the Olympic torch thing was a bit suspect, I don’t think the opinions of the hosts and guests of PTS and presumably the other shows reflect a bias towards Rogers. It’s mostly been anti-Rogers for quite a number of years. Increased coverage of the Jays is warranted given this past off-season. Both the good stuff and the criticisms have been discussed.

RE: Dirk Hayhurst

Is it just me or does it seem like he’s no longer the co-host of Baseball Central? From the podcast page:

Tuesday: …Dirk Hayhurst, Co-Host, Baseball Central At Noon
Friday: Jeff Blair and Jack Morris co-host with guests Dirk Hayhurst…

Also during the show, Blair referred to Hayhurst as their baseball analyst. What? They couldn’t sort out his immigration papers or something? Nice job Rogers!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
