In particular, Keri is touting Dustin McGowan to supplant Roy Halladay as the Jays ace by the end of the season. That's a relatively new one.
It's too bad about the Jays getting rained out this afternoon. Mike Wilner's best line about the "ludicrisosity" of scheduling a baseball game in New York City on March 31:
"I get to come to Yankee Stadium for the first time in my life and I get to see a big white tarp rolled out on to the field."Meantime, the Drunks call attention to the real kick in the pants, which is that fans miss out on getting to watch the opener in HD. TSN will be airing the season opener of the Rogers-owned baseball team on Tuesday rather than the Rogers-owned network, which is showing Mathematically Eliminated vs. Effectively Eliminated, the Leafs and the Sabres.
Granted, the ballgame could be a nothing game too, but no one will know that for at least a month. What's better? TSN tomorrow or more rain and Sportsnet picking it up on Wednesday? Let's hear it.
Please don't make this into a Jamie Campbell vs. Rod Black kvetchfest. It's tiresome, for one. It's not about them. It's on the highers-up in Canadian broadcasting who don't invest in bringing along bona fide baseball play-by-play people and just expect to get lucky, which can happen. The rest of us are just supposed to believe that there isn't a man or woman in a country of 33 million people who can commentate baseball. That's hard to believe.
