As that weirdo who listens to radio broadcasts, this is a terrible idea.

If it were a collaboration with Modest Mouse it would be good news for people who like bad news.

I got excited because I thought this was about psychic TV. I like TV on the radio as well but not as much.

There is already a Dunedin Blue Jays in A-Ball. So these should be called the "Toronto Blue Jays of Dunedin", or maybe "Dunedin Blue Jays 2 : Electric Boogaloo"

I love listening to games on the radio, especially when I'm on the road. However baseball when being listened to is better because the radio team gives you a better pic of what's going on. Ernie Harwell and Jack Buck painted such a good picture.

Well sucks to be the people that listen to the Jays on the radio.

Calling a game on the radio is different than for television because you don't have graphics to deliver information to the listener, something TV heavily relies on.

  Judging by alll thre indignaant replies on that page Torontans truly and loudly believe that no mere humkan  could ever do a good job at being a rqadio and a TV announcer at the same time in the same game. I guess as fans of an American League team they would be hypocrites if they ever saidotherwise after they have said so many times that Pitchers should ever be allowed to touch bats.

No wonder people like Babe Ruth and Vin Scully never got their due respect from those poor blind morons

"Play by play, I saw it on the radio".  Baseball and radio simply work better.  The game is simply too slow to dedicate your time to TV, but radio allows you to do other things as well.  Baseball is simply trying to slowly kill itself.

If your typical 10 year old boy doesn't want to grow up to be a major league ball player (or at least consider the home team's record critically import to his life), the MLB owners are doing it wrong.  And they really seem to be doing it wrong.  Catering to the 1% via skyboxes might be where the money is, but the 10 year old (1% or not) are where the future for baseball has always been.  And they've been ignoring them for decades.
