I'm your host mark collie as zoe joined by bryson and jake and today the postseason the world series is finally wrapping up or close to the end of the road almost into the offseason for the blue jays. Before we get to that point today were looking back and deciding who is going to get the end of season. Awards for the blue jays. Halfway through the season at the all star break we put our votes in for who'd get the mid season awards now that we're at the end of the season we're looking back at those predictions. Co they turned out. But we're also gonna put in our picks for end of season awards and it's also especially relevant because some picks from different organizations whether it's a players association whether it's a gold glove award. They've started to stream in as well. So we're going to be getting our pick sent but guys how are you doing. Great mark like you mentioned right off the top we're so close for off-season blue jays content and you know some of that stuff is already kind of starting to circulate a bit but once the world series ends. We know we're kind of full-throttle to all of that throughout the winter. So it's good that we're almost at the end of that and today we get to talk about like you mentioned off the top again the awards and excited to be here so i am doing good him. Yeah we got some news. Who's yesterday that marcus. Simeon is switching. his agency's going now to scott. Boris which of course for every blue jay fan he can get. Ptsd when you talk about. Scott boris but you know maybe it's not as bad as it seems. They've signed hanjin review. Who's of course scott. Boras client in the past the sort of blue fever or You know the idea that scott. Boris is afraid of having his client signed with canadian teams. Blue flu no longer thing hopefully with that happening. But anyways jacob power. I'll be honest this off season. I know technically hasn't started but this has been like the most boring stretch of weeks since the blue jays have ended. I mean part of it is because the other toronto teams are just they induce a lot of anger. But i'm happy to do this. I'm happy to get on with the off season and at least there is still some world series baseball going on. It's true. We are two games into the world series game threes tonight by the time. You're hearing this. You'll probably be watching game before but before we get to that. Let's jump right into our end of season awards and like we did halfway through the season. We're going to start with the least important awards and work our way up to the most important awards so as always at least important in the ward is reliever the year and you know like there's not much halfway through the season we said it was jordan romano and we got votes from all of our followers listeners and seventy four percent of respondents said it was jordan romano for reliever of the year.

"Rbi vladimir grow junior to eleven to doubles so both of were doubles in. Both of them were pretty. Big doubles both drove in. Rbi but one walk for him. And this is the kicker. I think to oscar over eleven. One walk for strikeouts. So when you have george springer doing all these things at the top of the line up within the next three guys are i guess. Three of the next four guys including boba are pretty cold. The offense isn't going to do anything. And i think that's the reason why the blue jays losses series. Is that three of the top five guys in your lineup or cold. You aren't being able to drive in runs or leaving guys scoring position and even as much as the bottom line. Didn't they series. I think they did especially the last game. You of corey dickerson. Having a good night of the plate you have santiago espinel doing his best help the blue jays out. It doesn't matter what the bottom in the lineup does. If the top supposedly three of the best hid five hitters in your lineup are going ice cold when the season is on the line. So that is pretty much exclusively who i blame for the losses in this series We'll get into a little bit later about some of the frustrations with game one. And how you know. You can't totally blame the blue jays for lack of execution but The offense is really what it comes down to in this series. Who and you look at Look at the yankees. Big is home runs in that last game or the first game the jay was they were leading. I think at one point are tighter..

Aaron Boone's Bullpen Decisions Don't Make Any Sense
"Like the managerial stuff in that sense is insane to me. We can talk about moving Joey Gallo to the two hole when he did earlier in the week and last week when it was just clearly not. I don't know how you do that. When he's the worst hitter on the team, laboratories is the worst player on this team. I'll just have to say that. It's just so by far. And then the pitching decisions I'll quickly go through. It's the bullpen. Look, you need your man. Your team top to bottom is going to do this. Not as bad as the Yankees are doing it. But your team is not going to be clicking and you're going to need some help in the form of the guy running the club. The guy who's executive decisions can sway the momentum of a game or can save the team can stop the bleeding at any point or can save the team from themselves and Aaron Boone continually does not do that. The Yankees the Yankees have Luis heel on the mound on Wednesday. Was he looking good? No, was he was he looking bad? No, he was wild. He issued 7 walks in that one. He finally ended up giving up his first runs of the season because of Aaron Boone's decision. But he'll walk he got one out. He walked two batters and then boom leaves him in for another batter. What do you think's gonna happen? He has no control. So instead of taking him out there and having the bullpen home, we're at the game, we're standing there at the game looking at the bullpen. There's nobody going in the bullpen. Louis seal is missing the strike zone. Batter after batter after batter, then file they're like we're at the game. There's like four guys up in the Jays bowl. Yeah. Just like stretching. Yeah. Hey, in case you need me coach I'll be ready. Yankees bullpen, like the bullpen catcher's throwing balls to people in the

"blue jays" Discussed on Section 138
"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..
"blue jays" Discussed on Section 138
"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..

"So that's why you hope. He's back hopefully friday at the earliest. Well what's look forward to what happens from this point on because like you said people are panicking. Some people are panicking. Some people saying days won't make the postseason panicking. Maybe that's an honest assessment as we stand now for enough games back to the second wildcard spot there two games back of new york one game ahead of seattle like you said five and five in the last ten sixty three and fifty four overall the postseason odds for them on fan graphs. On baseball reference on fivethirtyeight they're not crate fivethirtyeight and fan graphs. Both put it around thirty one percent chance to make the postseason thirty one point six percent on fan graphs. fivethirtyeight doesn't do decimal point social thirty one percent. You look at baseball reference. It's a bit better. Their forty four point three percent chance to make the postseason. That's a one day improvement of seven point six percent from what was at the start of yesterday before that loss that wind to seattle story. But you look at the eighteen. The change over the last seven days negative eighteen percent so they've lost eighteen percent chance of making the postseason over the last seven days just based on their bad run against seattle and against los angeles Maybe this is a hot take. But i think george springer goes to the injured list. The blue jays have no chance of making the postseason. I think they're out of it if that happens because like we've said he's so essential to this team and if you lose him not only. Is that a huge impact off the field. His impact in the clubhouse his impact on momentum of the team. i think you're screwed. If you lose short springer for to the ten day i'll even if it is really just ten days. I still think you're done and i hate to say that. But i think this is huge phil bluejays and i already think to be honest. It's a longshot is yes you have thirty one percent chance. According to these websites before and after games is a lot to make up yes you have a month and a half left of the season but this is different than the division if your four and a half games back in the division you have those head games and yes. The blue jays have had games against oakland. They have a couple games. Left against the yankees..

"And jacob power guys doing all right mark Not the greatest weekend for the blue jays. But you know they're still in it somewhat you know. Some people have different feelings on if they're still in it or not. But that's why we're gonna talk about it today. Yeah it was a doozy of a series over the weekend. We were talking about that. La series didn't go the way you wanted. You got to come out and win. Two of three against seattle and then seems like seattle. This year's tampa bay rays are the blue jays always have trouble against the raise. They're still having trouble against the raise but just add seattle to that list. They lost two of three. In the first series they played against the mariners. Now they lose two or three in this series against the mariners jacob power. I wish i was better weekend series for the blue jays and funny enough. Their record is actually pretty bad against the seattle mariners at not safeco field anymore but in seattle the record is under five hundred twenty seven forty or something like that so the the seattle takeovers not always the most enjoyable. If you're looking for wins but they needed wins this this This weekend they didn't get it. And well i got one point is. I'm not as happy about the series. As i wish i could be your the one win. They did get. Who's kind of like a last ditch effort like at that point. You have to win this game and we talk about must win games all the time but that one really felt like a must win game if you get swept by the mariners when you're in the playoff race you're trying to make the wildcard spot and then if you swept by them the mariners are going to overtake you in the standings like that's just disaster if they win that game so thankfully the blue jays polo with the last one. Let's talk about the worst loss of that series. I and it was of course game one. The blue jays are tied to heading into the ninth inning. They try to score in the top of the ninth breivik flare tags on a foul out at goes just over the first baseman. He's called the play. There's called safe at the plate review. It he's called outlawed. People have an issue with that view in the bottom half of the inning. Adam cimber comes in have his has is kind of first or second rough outing as a blue jay. You bring in brad hand. He walks a guy with the bases loaded to lose the game When we talked about disaster that's just absolute disaster for the blue jays. He can't throw a strike against jared kalmyk. Who's hitting like one fifty league. Is the number one prospect in baseball. But he's also not having a good year in the majors a. I don't know that was just absolute disaster..

"You know really tipped scales last question on this before. I wanna ask you a few about the actual onfield team before. I let you go but in terms of the decision. I know the boarder doesn't open to regular fully vaccinated. Americans until august ninth and the baseball team gets to allow non-vaccinated americans albeit in quarantine in as of july thirtieth has there been any blowback about this. I'm sure that in some quarters has been. Look you know everything that's happening ch- in these days seems to draw some criticism in some level of complaint. But i haven't seen any substantial Complaining about this. And i just this one is is so. I think on the list of grievances that people can have. This one's got to be small list. Only a of the reaction. I've tended to see him and certainly that's probably limited a little bit in the scope of sports fans but people are really excited about this. You know people want to see life returning back to normal. I believe and you know this is a small little sign of it and it's something that hasn't been in the community for a long time It's one of the most high profile businesses. It's been disrupted because of the pandemic and to see it coming back to toronto there being some excitement about the team. They're they're being some optimism around it. I think all those pieces you know a largely drowned out anybody. Who's who sort of you know taking issue with With some of the points of the plan. So you mentioned at the beginning of this conversation Justin smoak last game as a j being the last time the jays played in toronto. How different will the team that plays on. July thirtieth be from that team from september twenty. Nineteen while it's just about half the roster right now has never played a home game in toronto so you feel wanted to sort of put it into context. I think that one really frames it. You know before the twenty twenty season the The big free agent edition for the blue jays was Left-handed start starter. Engine review and he got the biggest contract ever given to a pitcher by the franchise and he hasn't thrown one pitch in toronto's a number of the blue jays just yet George springer. Who was the major addition. This time around. You know he. He's been here as a as a visiting player but he hasn't even been able to come visit toronto because You know the border has been closed so he made. He made the decision to sign here. Based on the fact that his experience previous player and believing the team believing in the fragile is one hundred fifty million dollars over over. Six seasons probably helps too. But there's certainly a bit of a leap of faith. There for a lot of these players coming home is going to be a bit of a new experience. But it tells you what how much change there's been The twenty nine thousand nine season was In many ways the bottom of the of the of the fall for obliges team had been in the ploughs in two thousand fifteen sixteen another lost ninety five games that season and that was really a transitionary year. Since the rebound has begun. You know the blue jays hadn't gotten home yet so you know the the team that is coming back to. Toronto is one that you know. Blues fans haven't gotten a chance to see in person and become familiar with in person the last time. The blue jays plead in toronto. We were discussing whether or not in vlad. Guerrero junior would ever live up to expectations. Pretty funny right How dumb deals conversation seemed now. I think that his emergence is a really important reminder for sports fans about why you have to have patience and it's difficult to have patients write us. You want your team to do well. I understand that in. It's emotional but vladimir guerrero. Junior was a kid when came up and had all the pressure in the world on him was supposed to set the world on fire and he simply needed the major leagues to show him what he didn't know he needed to understand what that meant for him. And how that impacted training routines his personal habits the way he prepared for baseball games all those things and because he wants to be the best player in the world he put in the work to make sure that it would happen. Once he realized what the gaps were in his game. You know to me it's a it's an affirmation of y. You have to have runway even for talented players. Incredibly talented players generational talented young players And you know he certainly rewarding that faith and it's full credit to him you know. He made the decision. He decided that he needed to be accountable to his teammates and he is having a season that is on track to be the greatest offensive season in blue jays history. And it's just absolutely special. What he's doing and it's it's a lot of fun to watch it last question for you. You'll be there. i assume. On july thirtieth. What do you think the atmosphere there is going to be like just based on what. I'm seeing on social media and from the players even. I think it'll be kind of emotional. Oh yeah it's definitely going to be that it's going to be a lot of things to write. Let's keep in mind that july thirtieth is also the trade deadline right and you know if they do something that captures the imagination people. A little bit as well You know it could be an absolutely incredible atmosphere. And you know i think back to twenty fifteen and the day that troy to a whiskey debuted you know. His acquisition was a shock. It just completely spun around the perception of what the blue were what they were trying to accomplish. And when he debuted. It wasn't a sellout crowd. It was fingers into in the thirties. Mid-thirties maybe But the crowd was as electric any that. I can remember because there was just sort of this moment where everybody was like. we've arrived. this is it. This is what we've been waiting for. And i can see there being a similar type of vibe on the thirtieth right you got people who have been locked down for the majority of the past year. Change having seen their baseball team in a long time. You've got a young team. That's seemingly emerging And then coming back for the first time this this reconnection with the club and then you throw him a move or two excitement into the mix. It can be pretty special. I'm excited shai. Thank you for this. And hopefully i see around the ballpark this summer. That's what everybody's hoping for the reconnection with everybody that we've been apart from for a long long time. Appreciate it shaida. Vdi of sports.

"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..

That's another boring day here on. Jaber washing saying yeah. The newsweek has been pretty tame this week. Not so much happening so really going to have to dig our heels and find some stuff to talk about when it comes to blue jays. Talk for tonight's episode. Of course i kid Brennan let loose man. This is the guy tweets last night saying man. You got your guy because every single off season episode that we've had been plan plan by far springer nobody else and then you can use means after that so they finally delivered. They ponied up. They did they needed to do to get it done. And i'm sure we'll go into that so that's all safe now. among cloud nine. It's hard to believe. I'm on cloud nine two but as far as it goes guys. I thought we were having around two of the great movie debate baseball movies. I really. i completely shocked and unprepared. I was ready to you. know go. After and of course arrogant about debating that bull. Durham better moving than the sandlot. Just just saying tonight. Basically i think it very well might be so if anybody wants to dive into the pot account actually know. There's probably two years ago because adam wasn't official ours. Joe you worry that. I became an official part of the show so it might have been around that time or might have been sooner. Not sure. I don't think i was even before. Brennan was part of the show and is still just kind of doing whatever the hell i felt like and to scraper ideas before i had these other ones to baseball minds with me every week he i was was not known. Who joyous zach helton. Yeah helton and The other ones said yes so it was good. Upstart i digress. Yes i am even wearing my two thousand fifteen day l. championships. Because i'm feeling good. Feeling wonderful look. This is brennan. You alluded to it already. This was planning for blue jays fans right. And i have gone on record on here.

"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..

"You know, maybe even arguably the 2016 rotation. You know, that would I think be really really good. Obviously, I didn't mention a fifth starter because you know, that could be literally anybody from the pub open as of last year as of this season going into next season, but I'm not against that I think you know the it's it's kind of funny that Trevor Bauer The or mentioned the the Drone Scandal I definitely had a good laugh at that when I was younger, but I mean not not a lot that he got hurt. But the fact that you you know who's playing errands and there was so many memes about it, but it was funny. Yeah. It was a really funny dad. Especially especially the game where he was his finger the bloody finger. It's slow dripping blood and yet the Blue Jays and when he wasn't he wasn't injured as long as he was okay, he was but it was it was pretty fun. It was he didn't finish the start but I would like to see him know that would be that would be a good acquisition for the blue cheese is, you know, like you said they need pitching. He's a pitcher who happens to be very good at that. So I mean if is it realistic, I mean judging by the fact that month Mark Shapiro said he that they have the money and they're they're willing to spend it. I think from a blue jays perspective. I think that that making the effort is realistic wage it's just depending on this Trevor Bauer want to come to the Blue Jays and The fact that a lot of the league is now recognizing the Blue Jays as a really good team or one that has a very good future. Who knows maybe he says you know what this is a good team count me in for the next 3 or 4 years. Let's let's talk series. I think that definitely could be realistic. I mean one of the kind of not deterrence but one of the elephants in the room is the fact that the Blue Jays are in Canada and I've heard over the past, you know, five six years of watching essentially every single game is you know, when they talk about free agents, you know, do does a guy want to come to a completely new country, you know going maybe from us..

"So whether the Blue Jays can play in Toronto, whether they have to play somewhere else whether they displace another major league team or minor league team or whether they share a stadium with another major league team. Like we saw them planning to do at the start of this season, everything is up in the air and I think there was a lot of speculation and we have a lot of speculation as to why the Blue Jays are cutting ties with the Vancouver Canadians personally. I think it's just the fact that you know, you have to get rid of teams right now in the time when the restructuring Minor League Baseball, but you know, some people are throwing out ideas that he brought because of the border that it would complicate how Vancouver would fit into the larger minor league system. Whether teams would then have to travel north of the border which of course right now is a big problem song. There was some people saying that they would rather the Blue Jays cut ties with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats or double-a team and then make the Vancouver Canadians. They're double a team or move, you know, even the Dunedin Blue Jays single a Dunedin Blue Jays up to double-a moved to Vancouver Canadians up to single-a. There's lots of people playing, you know, a jigsaw puzzle with all different parts of the Blue Jays system personally. I take some offense to the idea of cutting the Fisher Cats cuz I'm from New Hampshire and I like them they have a beautiful Stadium. But yeah, it's it's a good situation. Obviously, it's not good. But I I just don't know whether you can do anything about it. It's it's a situation that seems kind of locked in stone. I don't think the Blue Jays took change it much. Yeah, you have to imagine to like for a team like the James who don't know what's going to happen next year like you have to imagine for someone like Ross Atkins remarks your power if you're trying to recruit a free agent like yeah, how do you log? Free agent and telling them like hey, we want you to pitch here, but we don't know where we're playing next year. But the one thing I want to say too with the the Border issues. I'm sure you guys saw the news is that and this could be a game-changer for all the sports page. All all leagues are a guest other than the NFL but Calgary's testing a rapid testing like device or something like that at their airport where you can get results within 5 minutes and apparently if it works the government is going to consider eliminating the 14-day quarantine Rule and if that happens you have to imagine maybe that leads to the Casual reopening of the border. So if that if that would happen, I believe it's going to be tested within the next couple of weeks of November, you know, that's a major game-changer for sports.

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.

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.

"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 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..
