Today I had to go to court in lynnwood for a speeding ticket and on the way up and driving around Seattle I never realized how much I miss that radio station. Funny guys who KNOW there sports. An interesting fact that I learned today was Miguel Batista pitched 32 games last year. and in 24 of those starts he gave up 3 earned runs or less. and the other 8 are when he was blown up. I don't know about you but that is flat out amazing. Having a pither like that at the number 5 spot in the rotati0n than Bedard and Hernandez after that is an awesome 1 2 3 punch. GO M'S!!!!!!!!!!

I listen to KJR quite a bit. I really enjoy those guys. If I listen to local raido,it's them. Anything else is satelite radio. Did you know you can live live to KJR online?? On occasion, I have listened in the office.

I listen to those guys when I am out and about as well as online when working at the computer. One of the funniest things I ever heard was a few years ago Softy was doing his Lou Pinella impression while critiquing porn movies. I almost crashed the car from laughing so hard. I think my favorite show though is John Clayton's Saturday show. The indepth NFL talk is great and he is also very good at covering the other major sports as well. I like Wildcountry too but it is on too early for me. :)

That's about all I listen to. It's a good a thing it's radio - cause those guys are Fugly. Glad David Lock is gone, couldn't stand the guy. I like Gasman the best.

I listen as much as possible. As soon as I get in a vehicle its on and now my job will require driving a lot more so it should perfect for massive doses of KJR. I really like the voicemails around the 5 hour. I'm Vic Orlando, BIATCH. :lol:

KJR is my new favorite station today!! Talking about Tony Bennett getting out of Pullman while his stock is at an all time high, and Barry Bonds coming to the M's to play DH or left field..However you feel about Barry Bonds on a personel level, if the Mariners are indeed selling the farm literally and figuratively, to WIN NOW signing Barry Bonds is the right move.

No he isn't. He will be a huge distraction and is a club house nightmare. All season he will be grilled on his possible indictments and IRS problems. Also he cannot stay healthy. The amount of interest he has gotten from other clubs should be indicative of this. Only Tampa has shown interest and that is so they can sell a few more tickets, not to compete for a playoff spot. I vote Tdown:

And while I love the station, Softy would not be my first go to as to Cougar news. That guy is the biggest purple/gold homer there is and he will tell you so. He would love to get Tony Bennett out of the Pac Ten. :D

I rarely listen but sometimes I'll switch to AM if big sports news is about. I just don't like flipping to the station and find them talking about and running the Bigger Dance. I'd rather listen to sports talk than things like that. I do enjoy Clayton and the interviews by Mitch.

The M's are down about a million fans a year from 2001-03, I'm sure they would love to sell more tickets too..And most importantly, win the World Series.. Barry Bonds gives the M's a better chance to accomplish both of these goals in my simple mind..

Softy is just looking out for Tony B's best interest too..Sometimes being " the hot coach " doesn't last very long..

Now that is funny right there!!! Softy looking out for a Cougs best interest, haha. If it was up to Softy, he'd sell Pullman to Idaho. The only Pac 10 school he hates more is Univ of Oregon.

As for Bonds, we will have to agree to disagree on this one. Bonds is done and is not capable of carrying or even helping a team to the World Series anymore. Besides, the M's have had enough guys mentioned in the steroid scandal, we don't need the steroid Kingpin up here. BTW, he hasn't had 400 at bats since the 2002 season and hasn't played in more than 130 games since the end of the 2004 season. Not to mention the fact that he has spent his entire career in the NL and at the age of 42 I doubt he would be interested in putting the extra work required to learn all the new pitchers.

If you want to aquire someone to be the DH who will energize the fan base, and can still play some outfield, then lets make a deal to bring Griffey back. That makes more sense to me then signing Bonds.

If you want some excitement sign Bonds, bat him clean-up and watch how many people show up. Safeco would finally be worth going to again. We have the pitching now , what we don't have is any power. He can't cost that much right now, he isn't going to get a lot of offers until teams find they need one more bat and he's by far the best out there. We are certainly going to be one of those teams looking for offensive help.

Sing it Uncle Cory. The M's have said lately that you need to take risks to win big, like trading prospects for 2 guaranteed years of a very, very good pitcher with some injury and durability issues and signing a career .500 pitcher to a 4 year 50 million dollar deal. Signing Barry Bonds would just fit in to the new win now approach!! Tup:

I listen to them frequently. I don't like basketball or college sports so I change the station when those are the headlines, but I really enjoy their Mariners' and Seahawks' coverage.

My four most memorable moments since getting into the radio biz on KJR:

1. My first show EVER: I went on the air about 15 minutes after the Space Shuttle disintegrated over Texas. I was doing my first live radio show while watching the footage on CNN. Very, very surreal.

2. Chasing John Clayton out of the studio forever: I personally thought that cooking some fresh-caught spring Chinook live in studio would be fun. It WAS fun and delicious ... except Clayton had his show on right after "Wild Country" and did NOT appreciate the aroma of fresh-grilled salmon and Garlic Gourmay Garlic Mesquite Rub that permeated the studio for the next 6 hours. He continued to bitch about it through his national NFL show on ESPN, and for a week afterward on his various Groz with Gas appearances.

That said, Clayton has been a great supporter of Wild Country, and is a truly great guy.

3. A conversation with Bob Knight: The day we sat in for The Groz and had a 20-minute segment with Bobby Knight was one of my favorite interviews ever. Everybody hates Bob Knight. I personally love the guy. He was really good to us, too.

4. Herzog's "Ring of Fire": Bill Herzog unwittingly eats a habanero-laced olive live on the air. Eric Linde was in studio with us that morning, and politely passed on the "nuclear olive". Herzog didn't. If you were listening closely, you could hear him gasping "Oh sh*t! Oh, sh*t!. Oh, sh*t!"

KJR is a great station. It's funner to work there than you can imagine.
