    Thank god, he was terrible. Hopefully they don't just use Wilner to take over, that would be even worse.

    He has on-going issues with his voice.

    A sad day. He was great.

    He was sick for the last 2 seasons I believe, Wilner filled in for him quite a bit, I was surprised how many games he did manage to call. I think he was getting treated for Prostate Cancer, and he had a virus in both his eyes. Poor guy

    It's his voice, apparently.

    To be fair to Wilner, he has the perfect radio face.

    This is incredibly unpopular, but I don't mind Wilner calling games. I appreciate that he sticks to the facts. My biggest complaint about Buck and Tabby is they seemingly make shit up on a regular basis. "Oh look, there's Jose talking to Travis about hitting again. Jose is always looking to mentor and help the young players learn the nuances of hitting". FFS Buck, you have no idea what they are talking about. It's just as likely they are talking about the whore they tag teamed last night.

    Is there anyone you like calling games in Toronto? (excluding Shulman)

    Highly doubt it. If they want to be seen as a first rate organisation they need to have a first rate broadcast team.

    Shulman is the gold standard to be fair. But that said, I have some amazing memories of listening to Howarth.

    I've got a buddy who is of the same opinion. I think its just that I can't separate Jays Talk Mike Wilner from anything else.
