Do the old Jays still get coverage in Toronto? Haven't been to the city since '94. Like are there Tony Fernandez nights, does Dave Stieb work for the Jays, Alfredo Griffin own a car wash, etc.?
Some of the old Jays are still in the picture to some extent. Rance Mulliniks is the colour guy on Sportsnet which carries most of the televised games. Jesse Barfield has been in the booth quite a bit the last couple months too so I dunno if he's gonna be a regular or if it's just a temporary thing. Tony Fernandez was recently inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and made a nice speech. And you do tend to see a lot of ex-Jays on Michael Landsberg's Off The Record which is kind of cool. I've seen Dave Stieb. True to his old form he didn't have very much to say, he was never the warmest guy towards the media and didn't seem to like interviews very much so I was kind of surprised to see him on there. I've seen Mike Flanagan and some others on there as well.
Ernie Whitt is a coach on the team and Cito is back too so I'm pretty sure the old faces will never really be forgotten. I know they will always have a special place in my heart, I love the 80's Jays.
