Bisons/Blue Jays chatter on the air (Doan too), and a look at Herd's 25th anniversary downtown

Things have been abuzz in the media and the baseball blogs in both New York and Toronto since my postgame interview with Wally Backman Sunday in Pawtucket where he basically gave up the Mets' ghost for their run in Buffalo. Plainly obvious the Bisons will sign with the Toronto Blue Jays next month, barring something incredibly unforseen.

Sportsnet 590 The FAN in Toronto had me on the air today to discuss the Bisons' recent past and some of the plusses a union with Toronto could create. Of course, being Toronto, they had to get in some hockey talk too so we chatted near the end of the interview about Shane Doan as well.

Click below to hear the interview with the FAN's Jeff Sammut:


Something else to note: In today's paper, we opened a four-part series of Top 25s related to the anniversary of Coca-Cola Field with a look at the great games. In the next three days, we'll look at the great personalities of the ballpark, some of its most bizarre moments and the top players. That list comes out Saturday, the day the Bisons will announce their all-time team downtown.
