I've heard those guys a couple of times. It is a much different style however I can't stand one of those guy's voice, awfully nasally. I'll pass thanks. Ron actually had a very good show today 1st hour was open hour and 2nd hour was with former NHL goalie John Vanbiesbrouck which was very entertaining.

Also Kurt from Fraser was the punching bag for his ridiculous statement that the MLB players are "getting ripped off". :shock:

The kids are pretty good. There are like 4 or 5 kids on the show I couldn’t you their names but I like listening to Ron and then them on Saturday nights.

The players are getting,if not "ripped off" then not getting as much money as stars should be getting,what with MLB being awash in new media caish.
These teams are using analytics to depress players' value,thus their market value,and LOTS of clubs are now full of a few good players and young,cheap,controllable (for six seasons ) talent ,and when and if these dudes mature into Harpers,Machados,etc.,these GMs and owners now have a seeming excuse to refuse to pay them when they become great.Small wonder attendance is declining,and even the game's greatest stars are afterthoughts to most sports fans,even some seamheads .

EnbyCee,bubie,McCutcheon,in addition to his career 42 WAR (hardly that of an "inferior" player;in fact,the Modern Era Baseball Committee inducted Harold Baines and his THIRTY-EIGHT WAR into Cooperstown a couple of months back .Baines' WAR was 52% of the average Hall Of Famer at his position,so there are two MLB shrines,the Hall Of Fame and for good but hardly great players like the ex-White Sox,the Hall Of Baines ) McCutcheon was the 2013 National League Most Valuable Player as a Pirate . He's nearly done today,but he was an EXCELLENT player in his prime .
Granderson nearly beat out Miguel Cabrera for the 2011 A.L. homer crown with 43 to Miggy's 44,which had the "Grande Man " homered twice more,would have deprived Cabrera the Triple Crown.Plus,Granderson has been an excellent player and team and community leader for years.
Hamilton,a non-hitter,is a great base-stealer and credible outfielder. None deserves nearly Harper/Machado money,but especially McCutcheon and Granderson were far better than "inferior,"pardner.

A couple of weeks back,a caller-he could have been our Canuck buddy-suggested that Ron get a hold of old-time Tigers shortstop Orville I. "Coot" Veal ( an appropriate nickname for the 87-year-old Georgian. ) In keeping with Cameron's sports archeology hobby,i.e.,unearthing 40's- (in a couple of cases),50's- and 60's-era sports figures,Ronnie sought out Veal's Georgia residence and phone number,and guess Ron's guest next week ? None other than Mr. Veal,an awful-bat,good-glove infielder from 1958-60,and also 1963.

Well,EnbyCee,Baines belongs in Cooperstown if,like you,me and every other poster,he buys a ticket to see the exhibits,of which he certainly DOESN'T deserve to be among .

The players are not getting as much money??? They are getting more than they ever have in the past. Just because it was a little "slow" Machado aka " I hustle when I want" got his 300 mill for 10 years and Harper will sign a record breaker for even more. These guys are getting their money. How much more would you like to give them? And it's all guaranteed! They always get their money for past performance, One way or another they are getting that $$ and we the fans continue to pay the high ticket prices, conncessions, parking etc. The fans are the ones getting ripped off in it all.

Machado plays about 158 of 162 games yearly; secret: EVERY player,even the most intense,take off a few plays in routs. Don't believe the hagiographies about players' giving 110% (which is impossible);just observe for yourself Machado's great talent .

Besides,owners are making KILLINGS from new media,licensing and other non-attendance-based sources. Weep not for Argentina (or even small-market Kansas City ),Mr. Transistor.

Mr.Transistor,the WEALTHY owners' money,VERY LITTLE of it baseball-derived, works for them , while the RICH players must EARN their daily (or in their case,bi-weekly) bread. Since I doubt you can throw a baseball 95 or 100 mph,or hit one 500 feet,or field a sphere crushed off a bopper's bat,as these 0.00000001% of humankind can, they deserve,in sports terms,their gargantuan salaries ,as nobody pays to see an owner,GM or manager/ coach. Like most low-information fans,you'll side with Bobby (or in a few cases,Betty) Big Bucks over the well-compensated but far-less-affluent players,to the owners' glee, especially since,even when they don't raise players' salaries,you get no ticket or concessions discount .How 'bout THAT,bud ?

Cowboy it's hard for me to empathize with both sides making millions- both that make tons of money leaving us fans in the dust. Obviously you have chosen the side of the big contract athlete. If they can get it more power to them. Obviously to the ass kissing, gushing. slobbering over the big money players fan like yourself that is starstruck over getting a question answered over the radio you'll take their side. I'm sure you were never good enough to play any organized sports hence your fascination to idolize the players that hit bombs 500ft or throw 95-100 mph. Nothing wrong with that boyo. I'll take the side of the common fan that goes to a couple games during the year, wished they could go to more, but doesn't have the discretionary income to blow that kind of cash. Yeah players are getting ripped off.......right on Cowboy :roll:

Dude,I only slobber over big-breasted ladies, which is every lad's birthright. Athletes are the most tribal of all professionals ; as much as you or anyone else slobbers over them,they won't let you into their good (?) ol' boys' club . I only idolize my late parents ,Dr. King,the aforementioned Viola Desmond among other civil and human rights advocates ; Jackie Robinson,Henry Aaron, Arthur Ashe AND OF Colin Kaepernick among the few jocks I admire out of their realm .

Plus,I'm a bit more than four months shy of my 66th birthday (I've been a sports fan since Sept .1958,when I was entering kindergarten .) Why would I idolize ( off the field,that is) young men who,in some cases,are the same age as my 21-year-old great-nephews ? I only want to see athletes (read: EMPLOYEES) receive compensation commensurate with their worth to the teams as drawing cards (Harper,Machado,Trout and a handful of others of in this case ,baseball's .0000001% ),or people with a very,very rare skill (the remainder of pro athletes,even those said to "suck," since their talent is still many thousands of times superior to mine,yours,the other posters',and all but an infinitesimal number of our nearly eight billion fellow Earthlings .)
