Sportsnet Choice Obvious

Sportsnet Choice Obvious

Rogers Sportsnet's play-by-play and analyst tandem took a sad hit last October when John Cerutti passed away and yesterday they announced Rob Foulds won't be back either.  That means we'll have an entirely new duo calling Jay games on the television next year.

To me, the ideal team is rather obvious.  They've been working together for as long as I can remember and nobody calls a better game.  I often turn the sound down on my television just to hear them.  They represent all that is glorious about Blue Jays baseball and hearing their voices harkens one back to the good ol' days.  I'm speaking, of course, about Tom Cheek and Jerry Howarth.

The only downside to this is that putting Tom and Jerry on Sportsnet would take them off the radio.  That's why I think this is the one time simulcasting the same call on both mediums makes sense.  Nobody calls a game as well as these two do.
