A tiny piece of good news!

So, in the midst of all other things athletic going on right now (Go Canada!), a little piece of excellent news came out of Canadian baseball this week.

Buck Martinez is back.

He will be joining the Rogers Sportsnet broadcasts of Blue Jays games for the 2010-11 season. This news is good because Buck Martinez was always a wonderfully astute broadcaster for TSN in partnership with Dan Schulman, before making that forgettable and regrettable move to coaching in 2007. (Shh... let's just not talk about it, shall we?)

The only sad part of the story is that he's replacing Jamie Campbell, who I actually quite liked as well. Hopefully they have something exciting planned for him!
