3:05pm - Dan Shulman - ESPN Sunday Night Baseball
Shulman was in studio and started by talking about this past week's Sunday Night Baseball game, the massive rain delay, and how long the delay really felt. Moving on to the NBA Draft, Shulman talked about the strength of this year's class, and while there are no LeBron's, Melo's, or Wade's out there, this draft still has some strong talent. He noted that the Cavaliers (who are picking number 1) will know how they want to value players, their list will be completely different than a team picking elsewhere. Dan talked very highly of Canadian Anthony Bennett, who is widely considered to be a top-10 talent, and some have seen him as the player with the most upside in this year's draft. Moving on to baseball and the Jays, Dan sees yesterday's win, and performance from R.A. Dickey as a huge game as they start a 4-game set with the Red Sox tonight. He added that despite the Jays struggles, they have gotten some gifts this year including Jose Reyes coming back earlier than expected, and that the Yankees and the Red Sox are not as dominant as they once were. He also talked about the impact of Munenori Kawasaki and how his humour and antics are going to be missed. However, at the end of the day, he is a .220 hitter, and baseball being the business that it is, him being sent down as the only option. The only way fans are going to get over it are by winning, and the return of Jose Reyes should help.
