Bad Week For Jays Fans
Someone should really give the MLB schedulers a list of Canadian Holidays. Last year on Victoria Day the Jays were playing a Exhibition game at Cooperstown (the last one ever, incidentally- apparently teams complained) and then were on a West coast road trip for Canada day. Then yesterday the Jays got their first day off of the month so they could travel home one day late for the Victoria Day long weekend. Bizarre.
Almost as bizarre as Rogers deciding not to televise any of the next 4 games in favour of the Memorial Cup. I know hockey ratings are probably gold, but could these games not be given to TSN or even CBC for a song? Seems like an incredibly dumb marketing move to pull the plug on the team that you own for so long (and it doesn’t help that the Jays are just achieving respectability).
Don’t even think about signing up for mlb.tv – Jays games are blacked out across Canada. So if you can’t make it to the Dome tonight and Radio isn’t enough, try Sopcast.
