Baseball Central in an awful show that I truly wish would be taken off the air. It is constantly negative and they generally seem to support the use of performance enhancing drugs stating that they would do them now if in the game and by being critical of MLB for enforcing the rules in the most recent scandal. I find I disagree with almost everything they say. Their handling of the Arencibia situation was laughable and totally classless. These guys have had something like that coming for a long time. Please take these fools off the air Sportsnet. You can do so much better for Jays fans and baseball fans. People like Mike Wilner, Buck Martinez and Pat Tabler are class acts I am interested in listening to. The Baseball Central team are low level hacks. Don't waste your time listening to this garbage.
Jeff and Kevin have the best chemistry, this is one of my favourite shows. Added bonus is Kevin’s Bundesliga picks!😂
Needs to be longer
The chemistry between Jeff and Kevin is great. Too bad the show isn’t 1.5hrs. I’m sure there would be times where they would need a little filler but on those days Jeff could just explain to Bark how to “hit it where they ain’t” to avoid the shift.
