Hear This: Talkin’ Jays On ‘Bunt to the Gap’ and ‘On Baseball Writing’

In case you’re somehow not sick of my dumb voice after listening to this week’s Birds All Day podcast, I highly encourage you to check out the latest edition of Bunt to the Gap, which I had a lot of fun recording this week with Adam, Dave, and “Sweet” Nick.

Per their site, we “discuss a range of topics, from the Blue Jays front-office, covering the Blue Jays, spring training stories, Jose Canseco, Steve Carlton (and this Deadspin/Philadelphia Magazine story about him) and Stevie Wonder.”

Here are a bunch of spots to subscribe to their stuff that I totally just stole from their own post on this: iTunes | Android | Google Play | Stitcher | TuneIn | RSS

Hey! And while we’re all here, at some point during my chat with Bunt to the Gap, we mentioned how I did an episode of Eric Roseberry’s excellent On Baseball Writing podcast a couple weeks ago. I had a great time doing that one, too, and I think I only posted it here in a Daily Duce, so, in case you missed it, here it is again:

    So, MLB.TV is about to offer a “Follow your team” feature that supposedly lifts the blackout restrictions of your local team for an extra $10 a month. Which, you say to yourself, well finally. But then there is this, “Users, however, still must be subscribers to their local regional sports network to view streams from in-market games.”

    Which just makes me shake my head. Dear MLB, in the 21st century most of us could give a shit about cable. It also raises questions like, “Am I going to be paying more to be watching the Jays this year or watching them at all because I’m not inclined to spend a tonne of money on a otherwise useless (to me) product?”

    Maybe it doesn’t affect the Canadian market at all but it would be nice if MLB clarified things considering opening day is a few weeks away. Right now their FAQ for the “Follow Your Team” feature is “coming soon.”


    I really, really enjoyed the On Baseball Writing podcast. You were open, honest and well spoken. I think you’re correct when you wonder if Drunk Jays Fans would have flown in 2017. Don’t know, but it was fun back then.
    Continued success Stoeten.
    You still owe me a beer.
