Was going to listen to live streaming of the Jays game online, but MLB doesn't allow it. Tried atdhe.net, and found out that they have been shut down by Homeland Security in the US! Interesting times....

I heard Andy Frost is out next year as the post game guy in the re-org. Now, I know he's the homer of all homers but in a habitual way, I'm going to miss him on my drives home when I'm working nights. Maybe the new guy(s) will be better.

One of the stations that airs the game should pick him up. They would automatically gain his large audience and the ratings from a long-time show like this.
Regular on Andy Frost's Leaf Talk since 2001.

I say good. What a disappointment they turned out to be.

The channel started off well (the all-day ticker is great), and the potential was there, but they lost a lot of good content.

Pretty impressive the talent that has come from there -- Friedman, Consentino, Micallef, Seixeiro, Cybulski, etc.

Sarge

Agreed. But in the end of the day, the best talent went to the better outfits as the case usually is. I did find the ticker very handy in the early days but along came twitter and other avenues.

Looks like Watters is back - I heard him on the FAN 590 the other day on McCowan's show. He came across as a clown and the rest of the panel treated him as such. If he is going to be on that station, that will be a second show I don't listen to (haven't listened to the morning show with Brady in ages). I had never listened to him much before, and now consider myself fortunate.

I think he was just a guest on the friday roundtable they do. Like you say, the other panelists didn't really seem to take him seriously.
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

I really hope that is all it was and they don't bring him back too often.

So now that the Leaf games have moved from 640 to 590, any idea who's hosting what the equivalent to what Andy Frost's post game show was?

Probably one of the 25 or so Ottawa Senators fans that TSN radio employs.  :P

Sarge

Yeah, I'm not a super huge Frost fan but when I work evenings, he's who I listen to on the way home and it's always been comforting (for want of better word.) I'm going to miss him. Anyway, I think it's 590 now. I hope to God it's not 1050 because like LHF, I don't get that station too well either (I'm okay with 590.) - I was just curious who's hosting the post-game now... Anyone know?

LittleHockeyFan

1050?!!

that doesn't come in at ALL up here :-(

I ain't gonna like this much, I can just see that.....
