Re: XM or Sirius
I love XM for the baseball content (most of the music you get on there can be found over the air) and prefer any baseball content to going without (though Dibble and Kennedy have spurred me to turn to music on the drive home many times). Not sure if its just me, but the baseball channel has really taken a dive since the merger. They've filled the air with new hosts who seem to think that New York is the only place that has a team. The other guys could be lame, but the information was superior and much more balanced. Now we have three or four guys who are all obvious New York guys (especially on the week-end) and the entire day is filled with nothing but Yankee's talk. Even when its not about the Yankee's the discussion gets back around to it. I thought the old hosts were mediocre, but deliver me from Casey Stern, Jody McDonald and Ed Randall.
What happened to Buck Martinez? Joe Castellano and Holden Kushner can both get a little annoying, but they seem to be the only ones with a somewhat informed and objective opinion on what's going on these days. I do like Minors and Majors on Saturday morning, but they cut it to one hour so Ed Randall can get more time. Yuck.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
