    One of best shows on XM radio. He gets great guests from the media discussing baseball

    MLB Homeplate on XM is worth the monthly subscription on its own. There are only a couple of shows that aren't excellent, IMO.

    agree - The morning show is great- very informative. The baseball fantasy show is the only one that drags. Kennedy /Dibble is not bad either.

    All the show great guests because hosts are all well connected.

    Couldn't agree more. That's a fantastic show.

    I really like MLB Homeplate, but not on the weekends. Mark Gray is like nails on a chalkboard to me. Dude has Stephen A. Smith disease, feeling like he has to yell out his words to make a point.

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Damn that was a well-placed jab. :D
     
  9. Always liked Steiner.
    Added musical historical note -- Charlie grew up in Woodstock, NY, around the corner from the house made famous as Big Pink.
     
  10. When Tony K had his radio show on ESPN he and Steiner would do New York segments. Steiner also made some solid contributions to Mr. Tony's Internet Show.

    Yes, but has Evander Holyfield ever been on his show? He still wants to give him a whuppin'

    Yes ... Fantasy Focus is waaaaaaay too geeky ... and the guests are easily the least informed baseball people to ever have voice on the station. It's especially obvious sitting where it does ... between the morning show and he Dibble/Kennedy show. Those shows have some of the most knowledgable minds in the game on as guests, and then FF brings in some tool who has never actually been inside a clubhouse unless he paid to take the tour. And I guess that's the point of the show, but it just seems out of place. Ahh well, at least it gives me time to explore all the other channels.

    A show I've really grown to like is "Minors and Majors" on Saturday morning. It can be really ponderous, but the host does a shitload of homework and has MLB scouts on as guests, which makes for fascinating, intelligent (or dismal, can't-get-back-to-Big Tracks-fast enough) radio.
