"Is going to be and Yeah there really. Isn't anybody else i told you. There's about two guys. Not even maybe just jordan romano who you have complete complete utter confidence and in terms of closing out a game for this team so i mean that's the way it is. I'm just saying to what a story would be The can somehow get back into this. Of course it's still possible but basin we already. We went over this already. It doesn't look good but of course you can never rule anything out in a. It's funny too because you talk about a strength of schedule you talk about an easy schedule coming up. You talk about easy games and You know this is the trap series for the jason get swept by washington and now this weekend. I'm not sure how confident. I feel against a team. Like detroit either way. Because i know you're at home but look with jesus did in washington and it's kind of funny too because it it turns out the jays weren't the only ones Pretty much this week with a an easy match up to i guess blow at earned terms of disappointing at its finest so the padres of course they gets what by the rockies the reds also gets wet by the cubs or lose two straight and the phillies lost to the diamondbacks last night. There was a tweet of that that just came Came out but you know for a team like the jays who have all these opportunities ahead of them. We talked about at the beginning of the year. The schedules the hardest in baseball. Yes and all the sudden it turns into one of the easier ones down the road but it's easier said than done. These guys neither games. We swede literally went live about this yesterday before the game happened in washington where i said a sweep was the only outcome of this and it turns out completed a complete slap in the face back to me because it was a suite. We got you left. It was for the wrong team. And now when you look at it your four and a half games out. So that's why. I i'm not sure what else to think of. Of course you can't rule anything out. Of course people are going to watch and be excited. I mean you want to a reason to watch as well we'll get someone hernandez and who is completely Was the story of this road trip in terms of keeping this team somewhat afloat trying to keep or trying to do anything they can to kind of keep the steam alive and he goes to for forte homerun in double. I mean obviously marcus semi also homered. I mean those are guys that have tried to keep us alive. We we we know about the simeon. Had the go ahead home run today and the pitching couldn't back it up so i mean it's been the same story all year. We'll see what happens. I guess as we head into these next series is as we close out the month of august. September there's lots of baseball left but you're going to have to rely on a lot of teams to lose on top of expecting jails to win these games so that's where we're at right now..

"To watch. I'm still going to cheer probably gonna lose my voice a couple times watching any of the potential comebacks that we see but it it does. I think come with a bit of a the realization that yeah this team. It's probably where the two thousand fourteen was where it's still fun to watch. It's still a very exciting. There's definitely huge upside and there's a lot of stuff to come. I think are probably a world series trophy within the next two or three years but as of this season way too many things have to go right and for that reason as shark tank would say i'm out on them all right. Well there you have it not a great picture from us and what's gonna happen with the blues is there is a best case scenario where the blue jays make the postseason like there is still a chance because you oakland slumping. You got that series against oakland. Maybe they come out. They win two of three of those. You picked up a game on oakland you start rattling off a few wins. You get hot a little bit. You put up that whatever was twenty five and fourteen twenty five and thirteen stretch. That gets you in the conversation for those last few series against the yankees so blue jays. Second last series. This season is against new york so that just goes to show at the end of september. They could have the potential. I know you were saying you think the yankees are going to be squarely in that. First wildcard spot but bluejays could have that potential. Take that spot. In the last few days of the season there is a world where that happens. It's just everything has to go right. You gotta get julian. Mary weather back in the majors. You gotta get ryan burrow back in the majors. You gotta get george springer back you know hopefully only missing twenty games. You've got to win that series against oakland. You've got to win all those series that you have against new york you've gotta run the table in the next few games and you can't afford to keep losing games like these to the washington nationals of all team so like that things have to go the best possible way over the next forty three games in order for the blue jays to make the poses and and the odds of that happening to me are five percent and that's why i am on this season. I'll be pleasantly surprised. I'll cheering my heart out. If the blue jays make it to the postseason but the odds are so incredibly slim. That i'm not gonna pin my hat and hang my hat all that so So many people as you alluded to brazen blaming a lot of these games on charlie montoya. It's nothing new. We come here every week. And we say the exact same things about charlie montoya just so happens that he rolls out in a happens to happen in every single game where it seems like you can blame charlie montolio and i don't i'm i'm just fed up with it like i'm fed up with people blaming charlie montoya for all these mistakes If you have a good bullpen. You're gonna look like a good manager if you have a bad bullpen. You're gonna look like a bad manager at some point. You have to stop making excuses for the guys that the blue jays have in their bullpen. There's no one to throw. There's no good pitchers in the bullpen. To brad hand. Good to trevor richards who screwed up before. You don't wanna go to brad. Hand good adam. Silver who put some guys on base ahead of brad hand who loaded the bases previously before brad hand came in and that seattle series and walked in the winning run..

"I don't know if you guys feel the same way but to me it's over like if you lose two games to the washington nationals and fall five games back of a wild card with forty games to play like you're out of it there. There's no chance and on top of that. You lose george springer for the remainder of the season. I know last episode. I said that if springer goes to the ten day. I l at all even if he comes back immediately after those ten days. You're done this year. And looks like springer could be out for the season so i stand by that assessment. I think they're done and i hate to say that. Obviously i don't take any joy declaring the blue jays dead. Because i am a blue jay fan. But it's as simple as that. The odds of you going on a run in this situation without george springer to me. It's slim if not impossible and you look at the numbers for like you said jay take up for making the postseason The blue jays are probably going to need at least ninety. Two wins to make the postseason. That's what it's looking like right now with the yankees surging you know. You got oakland slumping. You got boston's lumping but right now it's looking like ninety two wins. The best forty four game stretch of the season. They forty three games left before the end of the season. But the best forty four game stretch that they've been on this year is twenty eight They have to win. Twenty-nine winds to get to the end of the season. And make the postseason so and you're looking at doing all that. They're george springer if he's on the injured list with the momentum that the team has right now i just don't see it possible. I mean the the best forty four game stretchable bluejays have had this season with george springer was twenty five and nineteen. So i. i really don't see it as possible if you've got to win. Twenty nine games including some head to head matchups against oakland against new york. That got seven games against new york left. Four games are three games against oakland. Like i just. I don't see it as possible. I don't think the blue jays can do it. And it's unfortunate. But i think they're out of it and i'm willing to write off this season so definitively for you guys do you think like are you in or are you out on this team. Are they sticking around and do they have a chance or are you. Kind of the ship has sailed for you. You're done with the blue jays air because they'll still watch games. of course. i'll be cheering for them. But i i really do not see that happening. Listen it's tough because you go back and forth. While the i i've been going back and forth over is not of course. Here's the thing i'm not going to. My expectations are pretty much zero. I'm going to make it clear to you. Guys there is zero however is the do they still have a chance. I of course they do. They need a lot of things to go right..

"Boy This is episode one hundred forty six of section one thirty eight. I'm your host mark collie as always joined pricin and jacob. That's all i got to say. Oh boy what a series for the blue jays. And what a series to be a blue jay fan they lose to of to to the washington nationals. The who had lost seven in a row coming into today's game they lose the sweep they get swept by the washington nationals of all teams They almost make a comeback in game one and then they blow it. They make the comeback in game two and then they blow it there now. Four and a half games back. In the wildcard races we record this seattle. The seattle mariners have fast them in the wild card race. I don't know. I'll let you guys talk i before i talk because i don't know i don't dunno boy. Well yeah it isn't. Oh boy it just everything that we spoke about. I guess at the beginning of the series in terms of how this team needs a couple of games against the washington nationals here an opportunity to gain some ground the wildcard standings and opportunity to take to to to on paper. You have alec no one game one game two. You have jose barea on the mound. What can go wrong right. I just seemed like everything was lined up for them on paper in a good way and then these past two days happen. I think today's things a little bit more than yesterday. But either way regardless i take that back both games sting just in the exact same amount of i guess in just the exact same amount because first of all The jays loose twelve six in game one and then today they lose eight to what was an eight to five two games here that they let slip away and all of a sudden. You're looking at the standings now and you're wondering is over and a lot of people are saying it is over The seattle mariners are now in front of the blue jays. So you can add one two three four teams ahead of them right now in the wild card. Race this one. From what rut. What a run. These past two weeks in terms of home in terms of making grown up in the ale east in the aol occurred and that all of a sudden we took a ninety degree nosedive. I think it's safe to say a ninety degree of nosedive. And when i say nosedive it was a complete Face plant it was a complete collapse. Ever since it feels like george springer went down in seattle. The the season is pretty much been gone for the jays in terms of it being done I know there still time. I know there's still some fans who think that there is a chance. I guess can never rule it out but when you look at it now you have a three game series coming up against the detroit tigers this weekend you have a four game series against the chicago socks and then you have another series after that with the baltimore orioles. So you have a long home stan. Coming up and then even after that. You have oakland for a weekend Early september the amount of ground that this team's going to have to make or the of the run that this team has to go on sick. It's going to happen but the cards that are lie ahead of them here It's pretty much slim to none. I mean making up four games. It could easily be five games by the end of the night tonight. it could be The the the run that these guys would have to go on just seems like it's going to be out of this world. There's so much i guess..

"Hopefully this doesn't happen again. Hopefully this doesn't carry over and hopefully it's the last we hear about it but you know good on him for how he handled it. Yeah like this is something that is taught to anybody who plays sports center. How old you are you. Don't do that in to a teammate. Like that especially in professional sports the cameras on you. You don't do that so i understand that. It was the heat of the moment. He freaked out. I'm glad he apologized. But at the same time to this joe panic who shouldn't be playing every day. But unfortunately based on the circumstances the jason been asking a lot out of him. This year i mean. He's been playing almost every day. They don't really have set in stone third baseman and he's been kind of the guy that's been taken a lotta reps at third base so in a way. I do feel bad for panic. Because he shouldn't be playing as much see has been but he has been good it. Just that you're asking a lot out of him and we're lucky that he has been giving us you know a good a good amount of performance based off of his role. So that's kind of bad for him about but Yeah farrah's tripling. I mean it was a it was unacceptable and it was. It was embarrassing because the for a team like died. I mean you know just the jays losing all around. It's just it's not a good look no matter what it is. It's a bad look all around. So that's why. I'm glad he did apologize. And you own up to it right away. So i don't think it's going to boil over though this probably just a one one and done thing which is fine and You just gotta move pass in just figure out what the heck's going on with the baseball team that's all i want. All i want right now just quickly going into that. Coming into that game joe. Panic only had two errors on the season. It's now up to four. But still he's been one of their better defenders and you know like to him like i feel bad for him because he is. He's a good defender. He's you know he knows his role and he does it well so it i feel bad for him but at the same time just just it's still inexcusable. And you can't do that. So i thought i thought i point that out that joe panic know despite the the added workload he still been good like to errors in Going into the middle of june. That's not bad like that's not bad at all even for aris. That's still pretty good so stuff just a where the emotion got the better of everyone and we're kind of seeing how horrible it has to be a blue jay right now manifest itself on field through that so Us talk about game to the ninth inning in game. Two of this series. The blue jays were down by iran. They get a lead off single from vladimir guerrero junior followed by double by taos as runners on second and third Randall grisha struggling came back..

"And maybe that's why. The blue jays made the decision they did on opening day. But anyways let's turn now to the defense first before we get to the offense. Because the defense i think a lot of is this weekend. It was really impressive. The blue jays half to do the small things better right. They do have big problems in the pitching staff. They have fixed problems in the offense. But if they want to get to that next level the next step that they can do within this season with acquisitions is limiting walks on the pitching staff but also improving the defense. Doing the small things right. it's not vladi ranging over to get around ball when no one's gonna be covering. I doing the small things to improve on the defense. I think we saw that in this series plotting for one. You mentioned bryson him doing the splits in yesterday's game. He was very very impressive on the field. I think we liked that a lot. We saw a lot of impeccable. Plays up the middle and even after corners. With bijou and i mentioned guerrero. We saw simeon range deep into the hole and save run on opening day. We saw the and make a couple amazing turns. We saw an incredible double play. Bijou of course in the ninth inning of opening day coming in throwing home getting my talk men coming home. Which again don't understand why he was running at all but still it was defense at saved the runs for the blue jays and in the case of opening day won the game for the blue jays. So i guess. Does this surprise you at all. Is it just encouraging. Are we reading too much into it. Isn't maybe just the way. The ball was being hit in the infield off the yankees bats. Or is this something that we're gonna see more consistently and how encouraged by at argue. I don't think that it's surprising. Because i kind of expected their defense to get better and when you look at last season it was not very good..

"The blue jay z. And it's just a very unfortunate situation. I think a lot of people through sports and espn all these other reporters. They've always basically said if you want a good team in canada you have to draft you have to trade or overpay and it just kind of is how it is you know you look at the blue jays. Most of their roster is from international signings or signings our draftkings or something in order to kinda not convinced the player but out of their control. You know obviously you can control if you sign with the team that drafted you but at the same time. They've already selected you so it's just unfortunately with free agency. I'm starting to get a little worried. I was very optimistic and the start of it. Even though even you'll go back to the summer. I didn't think we're going to have a very aggressive free agency. But they said they were optimistic that they would do something. But now as we're seeing. Is you know we thought the the yankees we're going to the blue jays we're going to snag. Dj lemay you from the yankees. Well he kind of you know. He ended up. Going back to the yankees. Even though the blue jays comparably offered him a better amount per year. So it's just is unfortunately we're to seal free agency goes. It's definitely a weird situation to be in because like you said mark. I want obviously the blue jays to be a good team and i think that they they do have the money to spend right now but at the same time. At what point do you draw the line. Saying this is an okay amount of money but anything more than that you know. Maybe it gets player. But it's not worth it in terms of you know the bottom line. Well let's create this like if if the blue jays miss out on george springer like what happens then do they just go all in on like trevor bauer or jt. Romeo like i guess. That's why i'm not totally freaking out yet. Because there's still so many other names on the market like i'm not even pitchers like james paxton. Jay z like these guys are still on the market. So that's why i'm like. It's not the end of the world. If they miss out on. George i get like. That's where i'm that's how. I'm trying to convince myself that that's true so that i don't get too disappointed with the news of springer signing with the mets which i honestly if i'm being honest i it kind of feels like it's inevitable at this point. Yeah exactly i'm not. I'm not panicking yet like you said there are. There is still time. I mean it's not like free or it's not like Spring training and whatnot. Starting next week there is time but it is still just a weird situation. I think the blue jays do miss out. On george springer the fans a lot of them will lose their mind on twitter You know people will say how dare you get us all hyped up for this entire off season and then do nothing as for me. I'm not gonna get angry. Like george springer is a great player..

"Hello and welcome to episode one hundred of section one thirty eight staking us. I don't know four years to get here but we're finally here as always i'm joined by pricing and jacob power. You guys good thanks. How are you fr- first of all. It's very good to reach the century. Mark it's a pretty big milestone so special episode for sure. And how are you taking great. It's it's it's been a long time coming. It's it's definitely been fun. Well this week we were going to do special episode and then we decided you know. We're kind of rolling with everything happening in free agency. Of course lots of lots of news this week with a couple of guys that the blue jays were interested in signing So we decided just to keep things going. Keep talking 'bout Free agency everything. That's happening with the blue jays so We'll start things off with what we heard. Just a couple hours ago from ken rosenthal. He reported or suggested that the blue jays might be interested in not only signing george springer but also signing michael brantley as well because the two are very strong friends. And we've seen the blue jays interested in springer we've seen them interest in brantley cover ago but we've never seen Both of these rumors kind of intersect in the way they're intersecting now and i mean what do you guys think about the the need for the blue jays to get to outfielders because as it is already we know that the blue jays obviously want an improvement in the outfield. Obviously they have random brisk. They're not happy with. But if they got brantley and springer that would mean taking away at bats taking away playing time from guys like tasker hernandez guys from like lord girl junior maybe if you slide brantley into a designated hitter spot. You're taking away from someone like vladimir guerrero junior depending where he plays whether it's mostly at first base mostly at designated hitter split between the two so it seems like this might be a good idea on paper for the blue jays but it's a little bit flawed in the execution in that it could pose problems on the field. So what do you guys think about this report from. Ken rosenthal yes. I think the same thing that you just said mark this is going to take away time from you know other players whether it be the outfield specifically or you know as designated here i think michael brantley is a good player. Last year he did hit three hundred with a three sixty four basis showing me. He's not a. It's not a bad player by any means. But like you said if first of all i think of george springer or any outfielder comes he's going to take over randall..

"Distribution stuff and you'll get a chance to come on the show goof around with us and if it sweetens the pot a little bit I, have a Lego Blue Jay hat kind of thing I'll send out to the winter. It's been open, but every piece is there I promise. I had nowhere to put it. All right couldn't move the bills helmet. Off in two weeks. Stack. Shelf space. I need to make more shells. But yeah. I think this is a great opportunity for fans to get involved and to express their their love for not just the Blue Jays. But if you love this podcast, you can participate it'd be it'd be an honor to have your artwork be our main podcast logo Craig came up with this idea. All credit goes to you I think it's a great one and any way that we can incorporate our fans. And fans of the Blue Jays would be. Absolutely welcome and I hope that we get some some awesome submissions. I'm sure we will. Get creative guys. It's cool with us. Whatever you want to do but my only thing I would suggest is don't use any official logo. Don't use the official Blue Jay logo we will get flagged and we won't be able to use that on aggie podcasts. Yours they just won't accept it because well, it's copy written so fun loving thing that. Share, our Cheeky Shenanigans ballroom type chat here you'll probably have some extra points. Yeah? Yeah. Jay's eighteen year. Officially on task, we would love to see it and we'll share the love as they come in on the next few weeks. We're not really putting a deadline on this whole thing. So let's just keep them coming. Why don't we? Why don't we need to show my horrible one I I I loved the drawing was was creative but why don't Just. Got Suggesting. You can say, no, why don't we give it to the end of the season? I, think that's like. Now that could include. If we keep going right into the regular season. Yeah in time for the playoff? Yes. Yes. I will debut the new. Days Playoffs by perfect. I love it to it. All right. Just two seconds because I'm going to be this guy as I pull up the old one here. Oh, you're GONNA put it on the screen.

"So if you guys want to throw him out, maybe I considered the top of my dome, but he's going to be a free agent and twenty twenty four. So you have control for as long as review or a little bit longer we'll be on this team. That's a real plus when Pearson gets healthy, you have that already that's pretty good. I. Think if you're going to ask the prospects for Cleveland's pitchers, just throw everything at chamber. Okay Yeah more or you know they're down on xactly sack and he was looking pretty damn good that we've had a police. TORONTO. So there you go out. And maybe the price won't be so high and. I honestly with the Cleveland Connection, they wouldn't shock me that those conversations are taking place just because a know that farm system in I. Know It's been a few years but still allows guys they're they're Cleveland's they had something to do with. So many drafts Johnson's then true. Yeah. Now you're out wrong and you know just want to touch on the red sox again i. absolutely still think that there's GonNa be some trade of veterans off the Red Sox roster the only untouchable in my mind on the Red Sox and three guys right now Denver's. Pogue Arts and Vertigo just because they got him or David Price McKee back beyond that if you get really crazy. JD MARTINEZ ANYBODY I Heavy contract. But I can see jd Martinez being moved or Andrew Benintendi because I think they're growing very frustrated Benintendi and Benintendi still have control I. Know He's been absolute crap this year but I mean I know the outfield that we thought was going to be a point that needed addressing looking damn good right now for the Blue Jays with brick Banou Randall Grischuk and the Oscar and Lord escorial. Hell at Andrew Benintendi before it's outfielder at rotated there from time to time. So I think the red sox could be pillaged, and if you're not the only other area I would add is the bullpen. You can never have enough bullpen help and you're in the playoffs. Then I know our full of staff who knows what the rosters will be. COMPLA- off time. Looking some royals and in Kennedy would be a nice armed add at the back end of the bullpen. He's got starter stuff wasn't damn good starter for a little while and either pretty damn good reliever too. So I'm going to be looking up royals for Kennedy as well. novelist. Lists. He wasn't Anthopoulos trump. Speaking of the Royal Trump Rosenthal Zeman frigging most talked about guys in major, League baseball trades so far. So maybe everybody's overlooking Kennedy. Maybe Brennan you are right. We don't get an arm the starting rotation and is a nice way to solidify the actual rotation by freeing up a spot. For K. or whoever to come out of the bullpen and going to the rotation, and it's still have that same level of talent and they're the same Louis Ambulatory Hawkins..

"I'll be your host, my name's at Corsair joined by my fellow Co, of course, as always Mr Craig Board and Mr Brennan Pentecost. What's up guys? Doing. Good Buddy how doing I'm excited I'm excited to share. Fifteen, boys. All a little bit of postseason baseball in the mix here even though we have about a month away but. You know there's a whole lot to break down. There's a whole lot of postseason talk to break down. There's a whole lot of trade deadline talked to break down. But it should be noted first of all that we are recording this. Friday evening eight, twenty eight that is August the twenty eighth for those that are listening on the podcast. Edition I guess you could say this show and not the streep There is currently lie bluejays baseball going on right now with the Jays hosting the Orioles, their nemesis for this year as it seems. That being said, the Jays are pretty much sitting pretty right now on the eighth spot of the American league with a record of fifteen in fourteen. If I'm not mistaken, they haven't been below five hundred since August the nineteenth. So they're they're in pretty good shape when it comes to that things are looking good when it comes to the team itself but I should note to start the show the state of sports in general. Is In an a pretty much an unfortunate, yet familiar space. So I kind of want to start with this. We can spend as much time as you guys want when it comes to this, but I think it's worth mentioning we've touched on this before and history has terrible of repeating itself and this time to a much larger degree with racism still being prevalent in our society. Unfortunately, the sports world is taking action with players and teams boycotting pretty much or protesting their respective games, the Jays notwithstanding on Thursday evening, the Jays, and the Red Sox game was pretty much boycotted to raise awareness for racial injustice specifically. Spawned on the acts committed to Mr Jacob Blake, who was shot seven times in the back by by policeman Brennan. Start with you how do you think the team responded to this I know the red sox sort of took the ball initially in the bluejays followed. What are your thoughts also should be noted that today is MLB celebration of Jackie. Robinson days usually held in April but today given the shortened season. This is celebrating it that was a word salad for me you can take it over. Now, very good way to start it off out of MRS discussion that everybody should have especially with three of us who are Caucasian male over the age of twenty eight.

"You never know and when you had that kind of pure talent I'm not saying this is like Bryce Harper level might be i. don't think it. Could be.

You're superstar like some people are projecting him to be, but this is an everyday player that we're going to have in our system for a lawns is. The biggest thing I think is we know is basking to carry us where he's going to fit in on the diamond itself, I think Adam, and then we run away with us.

I said Never Roberto assume it was gonNA. Come up right after mark. Stroman got hurt and spring training. And I said he was going to run away with a jaw. Which means that it did yeah. I was right about that, but I didn't think about how bad of a person and other things that are. Filled in. Reality you might be a good person that one incident, but as far as it goes I'm not gonna be doing that, and then I actually called in the beginning of the season that I said you'd be dumped Jose Reyes. Dolinsky Jala matters as and guess what happens before the end of the season was nuts. They might not have the best career Blue Jay, but he was better than Jose. Reyes. Yes, yes. During that season I would like to go back and watch two thousand fifteen highlights and see how many ground balls went through raises likes. Gone it was gone. Yeah, it was I. Mean I know that was a as favorite player? That's why he wanted to trade for him so bad. It was a difficult trade. Him Away was days learned a little bit more than that since I think Oh.

Ally because this is the second time I've done this decent people give you going to be day. I fix stuff for a living so I guess that's how I have to make it work. So how do you want us to screen shot this and send it to you? Is that yeah? That's what I was thinking. Shot or you know. Take a seeing you guys take a picture of you know a piece of paper like I was assuming people would. I need some sort of answer sheet from everybody and if you want to. You're doodling in the next week or your you know tiebreaker piece.

That's awesome Brendan only wants to share it with the text message room and you want to share with the teams. I said that both of you guys. I don't care so I'm GonNa put this suffer a minute just to let everybody sinking is we have had a few people in and out and honestly we had had a good amount of listeners. Sixty three people in and out so far this live show so all that a win up fined sixty four somebody else. I don't know how many people are live at the moment but it's been a pleasure having everybody here and I hope that you're all having a good time with Jay Trivia with us. Make sure you get us those pictures in the next week here or not from week. I guess five days you know make sure you get them in by seven o'clock five twenty four.

Everybody up in Canada too is that is the main listening ship to us. You would think but oddly enough as we've shared on the show there's somehow fifty percent of our listeners are Americans and it's skewed funny you would think. Hey we're a trouble days podcast. We'd have like this whole country. Be You know dealing with. Please share the wealth. Let us know what's going on so we can get more people. We don't have a chat with each and every one of you which is why we really do. More live shows worked pretty well. I like the Like the camera aspect of it. All three of us get to see each other. Yeah Number One. Yeah Hey I got to figure out how can be equal part of this whole conversation though. What do you mean Michel Species during the conversation here as the person that's sharing their screen from their computer? I get here on the bottom. Oh Yeah I know I know that's why you can probably see me looking down the imperative because I'm looking at how it look in the camera. Yeah I'll cool that I was able to put that window of US talking while we were doing the whatnot here and having a good time but apparently it's not as easy as I thought you know. Zoom does this whole wonderful thing where it does the same thing. So I'm not guessing at teams that shoe but anyway JAS fans. I hope you enjoyed your who Mr Panic car in you. Mr Corsair had a good time as well. No no no not at all geared to see what my answer would be but whatever power so we got a nice little forty five minute.

No I'm just like checking out the twitter feed dre and I'm it's kind of eerie to see all of US Bonnet while we're talking on this window is just kind of freaking me the fuck out.

There's a stuffed animal right. What I was dollar. It literally is maybe about the size of my microphone. Really tally that doesn't look like the actual blue jays mascot so she thinks I'm bringing this giant monster thing. Home Sodas my now wife I get home and go here you go. And it's like the size of a TIC TAC. She goes she's three years three years old whereas the rest of it. Good Times plus number seven. Who was the Blue Jays first? Twenty game winner Jack. Morris Jimmy key Ray Halladay Pankin or Wanda's man. I'm being honest the guest. It was one of those ones that all those guys at one twenty games. It's one of the one of them. Definitely one them yes. It is definitely one of them. I can promise that all right. You guys want to take a break to taverny terrible shenanigans. Please feel free to interrupt me. No no no. I'm good pictures. Yeah it's amazing what you can do our point these days. Yeah I know but see how you guys talk the engagement photo. That's the GEICO in Toronto. We went there to celebrate the game where Marco Estrada dominated the Yankees. That was a Sunday. That was the Sunday and that was driving. A perk of being only four. Three hours away here in Rochester. My like I said you gotta dislike fly here and then you can ride over the border with me So question number eight the trial. Bluejays walk pitchers won three consecutive cy young awards from nine hundred ninety six to nine nineteen ninety eight. Roger Clemens was to those who was the other one was at one. Guthman Pat Hentgen. Paul quantrill Chris Carpenter or album Escobar. I know who was them? Apply question and sure because I actually looked up the Rosser those three years. And they're all on it and maybe the way for it. It's a heck of a lot as Sabail there you would think we were the better from ninety six to ninety eight one. You got your names on their cruiser. A key might be as they might not have peaked when they were Blue Jays. The couple like Chris Carpenter not peaking right but was it the Chris Carpenter that was cardinal. All right in my wonderful collective tour of Minor League ballparks. This would be the wonderful ballpark Bluefield. This was my actual view from the press. Box hanging out with Zach. How so question number? Nine Manny Ramirez has the longest home run in Rogers head Rogers Center Slash Skydome of one hundred ninety one feet. Sorry I don't have that in metric by which Blue Jay has a home team home run of four hundred eighty three the Carlos Delgado Jose Canseco. Joe Carter Fred mcgriff or Jose Bautista. And Yes do not forget. Jose can SACO did have one of the longest home runs as an a and he was actually a Toronto Blue Jay as well A heck of an offensive season with him in the middle of allied. He was better than the frigates six spot by that point to skirt. Yeah that's scary very scary. That was the year we had Tony Battista so once again me hanging out in Dunedin. Because I'm cool like that all beer. Where's the beer man? That is a slightly picture. Just saying that is freely pre-marriage free this free that that is pretty much right out of college. I have some friends that live in the town eating and I got to go down there pretty regularly. So why should number ten? Who was the Blue Jays first player to win a batting title? And yes these guys are all current bluejays like top five batting averages per seasons ransom mullenix Carlos Delgado Tony Fernandez Paul Molitor Johnny Ola. Route that ball. Who ON THEIR KINDA CRAZY? It's an insane one good year. Yeah I remember when they used to rotate out. Color commentators they had ostler have rent. Mullenix from the third guy. I can't remember back in like five or six I absolutely aid and Rams Mullenix guy and now I hate Adler and funny enough. I liked them the most about them. Now the question is.
"blue jay" Discussed on Section 138
"I don't think they'll stick him in the minors because I think another team will want to acquire him. I think he'll be useful for another team is just where the ages are right now. They're situation the fact that he strikes out so much it just the way it's working out doesn't seem like he's going to stick around with the. Blue Jays unfortunately great guy. I with all these players that you know. We say horrible things about how they're playing but it's really something that you know. You wish the best for them off the field It's just you gotTa to put the best product on the field So we'll move on now to some of the questions we got from you guys and our first question comes from. Aj he asked Aj Am nate. Excuse me he asked how long Until the Blue Jays are contending team. How long until we see them you know pushing for a championship and I think you know I was just talking about the the stages rebuild. I think they're just past the middle of the rebuild right now. I'd say the middle of the rebuild was the trade deadline or the start of this season and over the off season. They'll start shifting their gaze towards the next stage which is acquiring players. That are gonNA stick around for a long time that are going to be helping the Blues Compete and that means I think in two thousand twenty. They're not GONNA do much. They might be a few games below five hundred But I don't think they're GONNA compete be competing at all next season But twenty twenty one. I think that's the time when we'll see the blue jays looking towards a wildcard spot. I think they'll fall short in twenty twenty one honestly. I don't think they'll be able to pull it off that soon. But in twenty twenty two. I think that's the year that we'll see them. Dead in the heat of a wild card race or or Division Championship in the alias. Store or something of that kind. And that's what that's why I'm really excited for. Its three years down the road but I'm still excited that you're definitely right there. Those days of the you know the dark times during the rebel against the whole rebuild as a dark time. But you know those days of seeing on her Solarte's no offense to him hitting cleanup for team everyday Those days of You know those days are over and the only way the contract from this point as anybody would seem would be upwards after all the youngsters that we finally see again. I've I've said it countless times. Their new core of in the batting lineup and again. Those famous names are Vladimir Guerrero Junior boba shut Kevin Bijou Laura's Gurriel and so on and so on and I think with those players they're they still have quite a lot of developing to do at the major league level We know we know Vlad's slump or I should say you know his underperformance in his first few months of the season and we know how much he's picked it up since the all-star break which is obviously a great sign boba sheds just been tearing it up since he's been called up you know. He recently had to home. Runs off Clayton Kershaw. Which is good to see Kevin Bijou as well. He seems to be developing at a slower pace but he still has a lot of potential and and and like we said that lurks correal seems to be just a you know a new player after finding a comfortable position to play and with all of this happening and also the the other big factor would be When the start buying and I think that will determine when they were going to be competitive Ross Atkinson said countless times that once they are ready to spend money. Rodgers will provide it for them. I guess which I don't know how much anybody would believe just because of the reputation in the city but I guess it's something to look you know kind of be relieved about just because the curiosity and the speculation of Rogers would give the bluejays money to spend and I think that the Jays will maybe make some more. I think they'll with the winters continued to go on. I think they'll be more active in the free agent pool but I just think they're still gonna. There's going to be a couple years of them starting to contend before they're actually our. I should say buying before. They're actually gonNA start contending and I still think I like you said I don't know if I see them going anywhere in twenty twenty Like I said the five hundred like you said sorry. The five hundred seems to be inappropriate like an appropriate. I should say level expectations for them. Ross Atkins did say after the Trade. I think he compared the the Blue Jays rebuilt the two thousand fourteen. Houston Astros so I think you know looking back of that The Houston Astros weren't very good. That in two thousand fourteen but the next year I believe. They made a wildcard spot or they completely trended upward. So it's you know it's obviously hard to PR- It's hard to believe that's actually going to happen especially with him. But you can't blame him for being excited with all the talent the Blue Jays. How but they're definitely ways away I think twenty two twenty twenty one even seems to be a bit of stretch. You're definitely GONNA have to look within another like two three four years Max before they're gonNA start contending but the other big factor within this is all the prospects of bluejays have loaded up on and all the prospects they still have come in a big target or a big. You know the player in the spotlight. Now in the the Minor League system here Pearson. Who looks absolutely incredible and he was actually just recently promoted a AAA buffalo. He threw seven scoreless innings or through seven strong innings account. Remember at a phenomenal. I start so he sees definitely going to be coming up within the next year definitely unlikely he comes up this year but hopefully sometime next year and I think as he's Katina to come up you know they're still going to be trending upwards but we just don't know how long and with the rest of the depth bluejays have it all depends on how they turn out an example could be the marcus. Stroman trade with Anthony K and Simeon Woods. Richardson prospects like that. Where you don't know if this is really gonNA work out until you know five years down the road and I think if you know there's obviously going to be a lot of prospects that hit with the Blue Jays and there's going to be a ton that mess and I think it's a matter of time before we determined how they do and how they cruised. That'll have a big impact on where to go and the other good thing is the. Jays could have the pieces to buy with all the all the prospects they do have but it's a matter of time when when they decide to do it and when Rogers provides them the money which will be when the Blue Jays are ready to contend. But it's another two three four years Max down the road in my opinion. Hopefully were wrong hopefully next year. Hopefully they sprays all of us. I do want to mention you were talking about prospects and Nape Piercing Pearson. Just you know blowing everyone away in his first AAA game but I also want to mention TJ Zoellick because he threw a no hitter interpolate with the Buffalo Bisons. Um and that's just really something that you know. He was a first round pick by the Blue Jays a few years ago. I think it was twenty sixteen in the. We haven't heard a lot about him. You know we've been hearing about like you said a Pearson was drafted last year. We are at about Sean Reid Foley. We've heard about these other guys but we haven't heard a lot about TJ Zoellick but this is really used first moment in the sun. And I think it's a sign that you know he could be something big to Coming up in the minors such really exciting Speaking of people coming up in the minors we got another question about someone who just came up. Vodka Grow Junior. We got two questions kind of related. The first question was from tie he asked. Will Vladi have health issues his whole career and then the second question from Charles is will Vladi be a bust Those two questions lot implied in them I will say Ties question. I don't think that he has a lot of Health Issues Matthau. He has had obviously injury with his knee. But this year he's been largely. Ok Injury wise and I do see his injuries. Getting a little bit more serious. As time progresses just because of when you get older your more injuries. But I don't think I think the way that the Blue Jays have been stressing His you know the way he could get an injury the way that they've been stressing in trying to condition him Everywhere along the way you know single double triple A. Even the majors now. Everyone's so focused on that fact and keeping healthy that I trust staff to not make a mistake in that regard. I think he will be healthy for most of his career. I think he couldn't count her troubles leader in his career. Just because of the way he's built But the second question will be a bust. The question pie implies that he's already been a bus so far and I think that he hasn't he. He has an exceeded expectations because autumn. When we were talking about him coming up we were talking about. You know he's going to be a hall of Famer. He's even better than his father. And you know. He hasn't been that good but I'd say he's met expectations in ninety six games. He has a two eighty two batting average. Three fifty six on base percentage and fifteen home runs fifty five. I think he's making it clear case to be Al Rookie of the year. And that's the entire season those stats. That doesn't include his recent uptick in the last few months after a few starting slow months. So no I don't think he's going to be bust. I don't think he is a bust this season and I think you know he'll stay healthy for years to come. Yeah no grow. Junior will not be a bust. That's ridiculous question. In my opinion all due respect to ever asked it. He's not a bus now. He's played ninety six career games. First of all I know it's it. Seems like he's been up for a while but he hasn't even played a full season with the Blue Jays. And you know yes. It's okay to be disappointed. I guess a lot of people were a little letdown of how he first performed once he was. I called up and I think you know after the All star break He's been on fire and like you said his numbers are up and for the rest of the season. He's projected it in his last twenty games. major league. Baseball's protect projecting him to head just below three hundred and with an opium of eight seventy one with final enough. Sorry five more home runs and seventy more every is and you know gene's got a long way to go before you even consider him being a bus. He's got to be really really bad throughout those years. He hasn't even finished a full season yet. And I think it's completely ridiculous. Even think of him as a bust sure he's underperformed but again these prospects as much as they're not..
