TSN, Canada's cable sports network, has decided against broadcasting Blue Jay replacement spring training games. TSN Programming Dir Rick Brace: "Spring training's supposed to be a preview of the regular season, and this isn't truly representative of real baseball. We're not going to do spring training games. The network will give a decision on the broadcasts of regular season replacement ball halfway through spring training (Rob Grant, TORONTO STAR, 2/10).... In the Bay Area, the A's radio network will broadcast replacement games. The team sells its own radio ads, so flagship KFRC will not "take the lumps if the games are hard to sell." But Giants flagship KNBR "may be developing cold feet" about broadcasting replacement games. Two KNBR execs gave conflicting statements regarding the issue yesterday KNBR sells advertising for Giants games (Colin Seymour, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 2/10).
