Shapiro’s Round Table: The Moral and Ethical Decay of Major League Baseball

My first round table of 2020..and it's a slobberknocker, folks. Joining me to discuss the shame and humiliation of the broken national sports pastime that is Major League Baseball is acclaimed sportscaster and legendary TSN reporter Tony Ambrogio (@Tony_Ambrogio), country music star and Blue Jays blogger Chris Henderson (@baseball4brains), and former minor league basketball player and lawyer Mick Sloniowski. Together we discussed: how to adequately deal with the hubris and hypocrisy of a sport gone to rot, what a suitable punishment should be for players directly involved with these shenanigans since 2017, why Rob Manfred is a pitiful excuse for a league commissioner, what MLB should do with advanced technology governing the extent of rampant greed in the sport, how Jose Altuve went from an inspirational human being to a bucket of second-grade used pine tar, and why the Houston Astros as an organization deserve a special place in baseball hell.

Shapiro’s Round Table: Cherry’s Demise and Rudderless Babs

On this latest round table, I'm joined by national hockey writer John Matisz from The Score, dynamic blogger and epic soothsayer Luke Armstrong, and former Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender and 80's nostalgist Allan Bester. We discussed: the dismissal of Don Cherry and what it means to the average hockey fan, why the writing was on the wall when it came to his politics, the fallout from having a Canadian icon bite the marketing dust, why the Toronto Maple Leafs remain a dysfunctional hockey team, if Mike Babcock will remain as the coach of this mediocre group of overpaid athletes, and why Allan enjoys Fox News and thinks we're all a bit too sensitive.

Shapiro’s Round Table: Babcock’s Folly and Siakam’s Glory

On this latest round table, I'm joined by TSN sportscasting legend Tony Ambrogio (@Tony_Ambrogio), blogger and basketball guru Mick Sloniowski (@MSloniowski), and site expert of Editor-in-Leaf James Tanner (@James_Tanner123). We discussed: if the Maple Leafs are victims of a falsely constructed social media narrative, what the real future of Mike Babcock looks like, the importance of timing when it comes to free agent additions, why Sheldon Keefe deserves to be mentioned more than just a passing footnote, how benching Jason Spezza set back everything, why the Raptors remain the most likeable team in the country, how Pascal Siakam is on the verge of superstardom, and the legacy of Blue Jays frugality and how it's destroyed baseball in Toronto in a league where more teams tank than actually compete.
