It was before yesterday’s outstanding performance from Marcus Stroman and the Jays — and before today’s big trade of Deck McGuire to the A’s for cash (and Brad Mills’ clearing waivers and being sent to Buffalo) — but I think there’s still probably reason to pass along my appearance with Macko And Cauz (aka @MackoAndCauz) on TSN Radio 1050 here in Toronto.

So… uh… here it is.



Yes, we’re going to do a proper DJF podcast today. But that doesn’t mean we’re not going to provide more candy for your ear holes, as yesterday I had a lengthy chat about the Jays and the beginning of the season with some fine maritimers for the second edition of their East Coast Bias podcast. Notwithstanding the fact that they invited Drew on their show before me *COUGH* you should probably totally follow them by way @TheBigsNL — Terry David Mulligan does!


Have a listen…


The long, interminable winter is over and the season has begun, meaning — in addition to other, far more important things — that people have started asking me to come talk about baseball and stuff on their podcasts and/or radio shows! I already linked you to one such instance earlier today – attached to the outstanding every-Jays-conversation-you’ve-ever-had video from the folks behind Just Passing Through — wherein I spoke with Michael Newton (aka @michaelknewton) on a very special baseball-themed edition of his excellent all vinyl and alcohol podcast, Two Turntables And A Bottle Of Wine.

And now we have another, as this afternoon I was fortunate enough to join our old friend the Zubes (aka @the_zubes) — along with Jake Goldsbie (aka @JGoldsbie), a special appearance from Devang Desai (@DesaiDevang), and Ryan Eligh (@RyanEligh) on the ones and twos — for an episode of Sportsfeld, the sports podcast about nothing!

Follow Sportsfeld on PodBean, curse the name Justin Bourne, and have a listen to it too. I think we might have kind of nailed this one, and fans of the DJF Podcast ought to dig it.

Two-for one media bonus time, here, because I can’t be arsed to make two separate posts!

First up — after the jump — we’ve got some funny stuff from the folks behind the great web series Just Passing Through, as they pretty much hit the nail on the head in laying out all the hopes and concerns that surround this year’s edition of the Blue Jays. Give it a watch, and give them a follow at @jpt2013.

Then! When you’ve got some time on your hands, are find yourself champing at the bit for the home opener to just get here already, and are ready to sit down for some good baseball-related tunes, and a chat with yours truly in between, check out a very special baseball-themed edition of the great, local, all-vinyl-and-alcohol podcast, Two Turntables And A Bottle Of Wine. Give them a follow, too, at @ttbwpodcast, and have a listen below!

It’s been a while since I could be heard on the radio talkin’ Jays, but with the season coming up, all sorts of folks are lining up to hear what I’ve got to say… unless their station is owned by Rogers, who I don’t think like me very much, or TSN, who may or may not be under the mistaken impression that, as an employee of theScore I’m a Rogers employee. In other words, not many people in the sports radio world. Could also be that they just don’t think I’m very good at this, I suppose, which is fair.

But anyway! That just means there can be more posts like this one, in which I’ll direct you to a quick spot I did early on this afternoon with the good folks at Red River Radio in Winnipeg, talking about the upcoming season on The Playbook with Brandon Macgranachan.

My segment begins just before the 11 minute mark. (Note: the file is big, so your computer my find it a bit finicky, but it’ll get there.)

Check it out right here.

I really don’t mean to keep mailing in these *hey look at me, I’m on the radio* posts as though they’re some kind of credible alternative to actually sitting here and typing out a bunch of words, but… uh… here we are again! And really, what am I going to do, write about the Jays actually practicing outfield throws, and taking bunting practice, as though that’s some kind of a long overdue thing that could have saved the season if this country club of team had been interested earlier– even though, y’know, teams haven’t really done it regularly since the early 90s– or if Gibbons hadn’t been so easygoing early on, and then afraid to upset the apple cart out of fear of losing his job later?

Because that’s just silly.

Plus, the Score has got itself a little shindig transpiring around here, so… I’ll just give a link to my segment this afternoon with Bryan Hayes and Jeff O’Neill on TSN Radio here in Toronto.

Check it out right here.

It’s another new week in this seemingly endless season, and here I’ve got another chance to mail in a Monday morning post, as over the weekend I found myself once again prattle onto the digital airwaves about the Jays, what the hell brought us to this mess, and where they go from here. This time, however, it wasn’t quite on the radio– it was on this week’s Blue Jays Plus podcast, with @Mentoch, and @Sherlander6, neither of whom has, apparently, received instruction from on high to not have me on. Not yet, at least.

It’s a lengthy one!

Check it out over at their site. My segment begins 51:40 mark. Alternatively, you can download it here.
