I believe any 8:30 starts are joined in progress because of Raptors basketball immediately before (6 PM start).

The TSN crawl will make it totally unwatchable. I'll be watching on MLB.TV.

Seeing as the first game is on TSN2, I assume all the games are on TSN2?

Had my hopes up when OP had tsn listed.

Yes, I have clarified in my postings.

So obviously, TSN2 has the rights for this season again, which is part of the Rogers/Bell deal where TSN2 gets SNB as a constellation for Rogers moving all Blue Jays games to RSN/RSN1. If memory serves, the deal expires at the end of this year.

However, for tonight at least, the game is going to be on RSN, as TSN2 has the finals of the 2012 RBC Cup, and they can't shift it to the main network as they have NHL playoffs.

I wonder if the two networks traded anything for this game, or if Bell just gave the game back to Rogers.

That TSN crawl or bottom line is horrendous. The graphics look like they are still in standard def which makes it look fuzzy on a hd picture. It's also about twice the size of the ESPN 2 ticker which it covers up. All the games are on TSN 2 this year. Hard to watch this broadcast but I suffer through it for the love of the game.
