Penmen to the airwaves
I’ll be talking with three of the most knowledgeable people I’ve run across trying to get my arms around this rollercoaster offseason on today’s Season Preview Show (5-6 p.m.) on WWKB-AM 1520. You’re sure to enjoy hearing the information and opinions all three will share on today’s program.
The final of our five shows will be broadcast from Coca-Cola Field on April 5 as the 2009 Bisons arrive for the first time. If you’ve missed any of our three Season Preview Shows: CLICK HERE!
Here’s who is on and how to read their work before the show;
Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News has covered the Bisons for over 20 years and has been privy to the franchise’s most significant moments. He’ll share his thoughts on the impact of the Mets affiliation and the things that could lay ahead for the new affiliate.
Toby Hyde orchestrates one of the most detailed blogs Mets fans have to follow the minor league action throughout the season. Part of the SportsNet New York network (SNY), the site features daily recaps from every US based minor league affiliate and has a very impressive library of Mets MiLB player biographies.
Adam Rubin has been on the Mets beat for the New York Daily News since 2003 and also contributes to Baseball America. Rubin’s work is featured in the B.A. Prospect Handbook again this year and he will provide valuable background on why each player is ranked in system and who is on the fringes of making the Mets or becoming a Bisons player when he joins us from Port St. Lucie.
