Figured a JaysTalk thread was necessary lol.

I'm assuming many fans are back on the bandwagon, should be a good one today.

Listening to Wilner after a win is worse than listening to him after a lost.

I don't get the hate for Wilner, he's actually one of the most level headed and rational radio personalities on the fan. He definitely has a condescending tone but I'd say it justified by the amount of ignorant callers he gets.

He says stupid things from time to time like JPA being a "fine" catcher and he can definitely be stubborn hearing arguments against his, but he usually puts his ignorant callers in their place most of the time.

I used to think that at first, but then I hear legit callers with questions or concerns about the team and he just dismisses them and acts condescending towards them unwarranted. It's even worse since he's become almost as a blatant homer as raysjays and will stick to his egregious opinions no matter how wrong and how stupid they are.

I think it's because he does it with a self-belief of a former player where everyone knows he has never played a sport in his life. He is like every talk radio personality in the world. They can talk about a diffuse number of subjects constantly and when they are called out for being demonstrably stupid, they can find some tiny mistake in the caller, interrupt and focus on that.

BTW, never called Jays talk, but I does listen to an unhealthy amount of talk radio on 88.9.

Oh yea i remember that, that was pretty inexcusable. Like i said though he says stupid things at times and he should get called out on those especially when he refuses to acknowledge legitimate counter arguments but for 95% of his callers I think his attitude is warranted. I don't think he's said anything ridiculous so far this season although I've missed several post game shows. If he has I'm sure we could come up with a rational argument and present it to him just to see what we get back.

I would totally dismiss Wilner if he completely shot down a rational well presented argument.

It's definitely the condescending tone, added with the fact he argues just for the sake of arguing.

One week he'll be using one side of a argument, then the next he will flip over and take the opposite side just because it fits into his agenda.

One of the best troll calls on Wilner last year was done by someone who either posted on DJF or the old BlueJays.com board. Can't remember the screen name.

The caller said he was happy that Alan Ashby was back on the radio ( he was away for a few games). Wilner agreed. Then the caller said that Ashby was much better that the substitute they had on replace Ashby which was Wilner. Wilner replied in his whiny voice, "but that was me". It was so funny. Wilner seemed to be genuinely hurt.

A problem I have with Wilner is that he will quote small sample sizes when it's in his favor then dismiss a caller who does it when it opposes his position.

I am not sure if we have the organization for such an undertaking. /b/ at 4chan have had some success at trolling call ins but you'd never convince them to do this.

It would have to be an uninteresting game vs an uninteresting team, so hopefully smaller audience and fewer callers. Maybe one of the games vs Colorado?

"Go ahead"

"I would trade him to San Diego for Andrew Cashner and Jason Marquis."

"Why would San Diego do that?"

Yes. Always call him Mark.

I have some ideas for conversation:
- We should have traded Lawrie in the offseason because he sucks.
- Suggest that Encarnacion should move to 3rd base, Lawrie to 2nd
- We should trade for Albert Pujols because the angels are struggling
- We should have signed Zack Greinke, because our rotation sucks
- Why didn't we trade for Vernon Wells? He is doing way better than Melky Cabrera.

Lol

I was actually at work once posting on the old game zone board, Wilner would post on. I was suggesting EE should be the new 2nd baseman.... Wilner actually interupted the broadcast to tell me how stupid I was.

Also... As for the rest of your ideas... You'll hear that on a regular jays talk.

Mike. I think we need Cito Gaston back. It is risky so I have an idea that we start Cito as interim hitting coach?? Announce that it is just until Reyes comes back. I know Cito doesn't work well with young players, so send Lawrie and Rasmus down and replace them with Derosa and Rajai Davis, who both could work great with Cito.

Keep in mind we say this is only temporary until Reyes comes back. If it works we could promote Cito to manager when Reyes comes back. If it doesn't work Cito goes back to retirement, and we get Chad Mottolo back, and call Lawrie, Rasmus up. There's really no risk since we aren't expected to play well until Reyes comes back anyway.

So this is just a plan to sort of test and see if Cito could manage again. What do you think?? It sort of has an escape hatch if it doesn't work.

Mike putting a PHONY POSITIVE BLUE JAYS spin on everything not is only an insult to any man with an IQ above 79, but it makes for bad sports talk. No intelligent sports fans will call into this show, so we get stupid callers only, now at the 81 game mark, no more listening to Mike after the game for me. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME! I may check it out once in September to see if any changes have been made, but to make this show great, a different host IS A MUST! This show could be a great show or a stanker, it depends on if the host has the brains to know what makes a good baseball talk show. There is hope that Rogers may promote this guy to two more innings of play by play next year, hopefully Mike will then think that he is so big that he can quit "Talking up Blue Jays".
