"blue jays" Discussed on The Big Story
"It to the wall close to the finish line. We'll take me back to before this whole year went off the rails when when spring training was opening. Before the pandemic what was this year supposed to be like for the blue? Jays while the Blue Jays came into twenty twenty in the before times as he said before the pandemic as a young team, a team that's coming out of a rebuild process that has seen them lose ninety five games last season on nearly ninety, the season before that. Quite few lean years as some of the players that Bluejays fans between fifteen twenty sixteen were familiar with such as Josh Donaldson, and Jose Bautista Encarnacion. Marcus. Stroman Aaron Sanchez. were, were cast away and jetsons in favor of your. Future talent and as the club's President Mark Spiro on its general manager Atkins underwent a process to. Basically, overhaul the entire organization make it younger in their mind make it more athletic make it better position to these successful long term and to create sustainable success going forward those twenty fifteen in two, thousand, sixteen teams or built on veterans were not built to last on. That was really the last gas for a lot of those players you think about it about Teesta no longer in the game Russell Martin no longer in the game. David Price didn't pitch this year and is very much on the the last legs of his career. So the Blue Jays drafted develops trade for young players and came into the season trying to kind of come out of. That process and start winning again they weren't expected to reach the postseason, but they are expected to be more competitive than they have been in in recent years like most objective projections had them around five hundred, which is a feat in baseball you play hundred, sixty, two games. Let's eighty-one wins That's where the food is expected to be, and then twenty twenty one was anticipated to be the year when it was go time and time to win and all in and time to make some moves to bolster Major League roster and turn this thing around what happened to this team in and how did they handle it as a baseball started to come back after I. Guess. Four months of total inactivity and it was starting to become clear. There would be shortened season of some form of what was going on around the Jays at that point. Well, a lot of uncertainty is the way the that I would put it. When baseball started coming back to life again, essentially in late June all the Blue Jays players reported to Dunedin, Florida which is where the Blue Jays spring training facility is. and at that point, they had no idea where they were going to conduct what was unofficially deemed summer camp, which was like Spring Training two point zero, which was basically an abbreviated training camp to get prepared for. As you mentioned, this strange sixty game season that was went to be played amidst a pandemic and the Blue Jays front office and their Alexander Lives in. The business ops people and their events people they were going through quite a process just to figure out one where spring training would be held whether it's going to be there and Dunedin with bluejays out their facilities whether it was going to be in Toronto at Roger Center and then to where the blue. JAYS WE'RE GONNA play their home schedule and their regular season games. crossing the border between Canada and the United States which was closed at the time do the pandemic having clubs coming into Toronto to play games from places such as Saint Pete Florida in Miami Florida which were at the time raging epicenters of of the pandemic having clubs coming in from New York as well and and Boston. It was concerning to Canadian governmental officials So the first step was getting. Spring Training approved plan Toronto the Blue Jays got. So eventually most of the Blue Jays flew north to Toronto for Spring Training some of them had to be left behind because they're actually was a positive cova test among Blue Jays Ombu most Lebron James went to Toronto and lived at the Rogers Centre they stayed at a hotel at the Rogers Centre they didn't leave the building they weren't permitted to leave the building You know via the quarantine, act could have been technically, they could have been imprisoned. If they did they could have been fined up to seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars if they did blue jays lived Rogers Center throughout quote Unquote Summer Camp as the front office tried to figure out where the regular season games going to be played and the Blue Jays had a lot of hope that that was going to happen in. Toronto they prepared a document of codes and procedures to follow in order to do that A. Safely as possible. It was over a hundred ages, hours and days and weeks of work went into that and it was all for naught because the Canadian federal government did not give the blue jays permission to play their regular season Games in Toronto so the next step was, where are we going to go in the Blue Jays exploited. To play in Baltimore Camden yards with the orioles didn't get approval to do that exploited an opportunity to play. In Pittsburgh at PNC part with the pirates didn't get approval to do that as the Blue Jays headed out to begin their season. They did not know where their home games are going to be played, and they actually ended up spending the first three weeks of the season on an extended road trip playing home games and other teams ballparks because it didn't. Have a home of their own. Ultimately, the bluejays ended up in Buffalo, which is the home of their triple. A franchise vises a AAA affiliate, the buys since and the. That's where they ended up playing their home games It was strange and weird and I. IT create a lot of adversity for the players on but obviously, they were up to the task because they have gotten through this season an all the challenges that have been thrown their way in a playoff position. Tell me about those few weeks when the season was starting Jays were on the road and and Kinda. Still looking for a place to play I, mean you cover the team you're talking to people in and around the club. How out of controller or scrambling was it because I know for for those of us kind of hearing the updates day by day it sounded like it nobody knew what was going to happen. It was a roller-coaster not only for US watching this play out from a distance but for the players because the players have signed up for this sixty gain season amidst pandemic with all kinds of procedures and policies that they have to follow and all. Kinds of rules about which public spaces you can and cannot go to obviously mask-wearing and sanitize Asian rules over how much time you can spend at the ballpark and this that and the other be thinking about all these players have families many of them have young children may of them of wives and partners and They weren't sure when they were going to be able to see their families again also, they weren't sure where they were. Going to be in a few weeks so that made it really difficult I. Think on the players May grind I think about hundred review in particular who was Toronto's free agent splash in the off season they gave him a four year eighty, million dollar contract. He's a South Korean pitcher who had spent most of his the entirety of his MLB career with Los. Angeles. Dodgers will the Blue Jays signed him pre pandemic and at the time his wife. Who is a sports reporter in South Korea was pregnant and she was do around March or April and hundred review had worked with the blue. Jays to create a plan for her to give birth in Toronto at Hospital in Toronto this is all pre pandemic suddenly penetrates. The Blue Jays aren't going to Toronto anymore hundred and his wife are in Dunedin Florida, which is where the lewd is Roldan Spring Training and hundred or you actually ended up spending. the the shutdown and the pandemic in Dunedin Living. Russell. Martin site was Russell Martin his friend from his Los Angeles dodgers days and his wife actually ended up giving birth in Dunoon, which was never the plan, and after that she went home back South Korea with their new daughter and hundred did not see them for months at a time. So I think there were there was a lot of challenges in adversity that went into this.

He's listed five eight to sixty five physically reminds me we you know you're trying to come up with the copper there were Sandoval Mike. was maybe being older Benjie Molina not young. But Older Benjie Molina and you could see the way runs. He's not ever going to be the Swiss guy. But part of the reason why I mean forget the you know the size and the shape. See Guy he's a right handed hitter. You do not see hitters in two, thousand, twenty hit the ball to right field away. He does that was I think. It's were to right field right including the home. Look. It's a he's a remarkable story for starters what he's only twenty one yet. Yes. Played above class say he can hit the bat looks legit. He walked more than he struck out in the minors last year and yeah, the Blue Jays have gotten dope production from their catchers this year. So can he play in the play offs I dunno buster yes. I mean you know who knows when we actually get there but you know when we reach this time of year teams, they don't really care what's in the back your baseball card they they don't really care when you were drafted or you know how much money they paid you.

The Secret History of the Korean Bat Flip
"Icl Insane power right now. I don't know how I feel about this. Meantime, is a senior writer for ESPN and NFL analyst on NFL live and yeah, the former host of this podcast. I am the captain. Now you will feel how I want you to feel I think is how this works. People can't see this, but Kabul was doing the thing where he points his fingers at his eyes and then he's pointing them at my eyes and it's very upsetting. So. How did the story which I love so much actually come about what was I think the spring early summer of twenty sixteen, which is important because we are coming off of the two thousand, fifteen mlb playoffs where as I'm sure you will remember Joey Batista flipped his bat which feels almost like I'm understanding what he did after an home run in the Al. Ds. I was between the Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers, and there were much hand wringing and commentary and debate as a result of that critics called the BAP slip disrespectful not only to the opposing pitcher button. The game in general were a player. I wouldn't do that. The fact of the matter is what he did did not offend you just don't sit there and flip your bad especially in the seventh inning but throughout this time, and before that, there were these videos of backflips coming from Korea right where. Korean baseball players were flipping their bats as defiantly as Batista and with great joy and style and panache, and these videos had gone viral in social media. Turk. Looking, looking into it a little bit. There's a there was an account on twitter website called Mike Abo run by a Korean American guy named Dan Kurtz, and so he was sending them out and then they go viral. Asked him kind of how he got into it? He used to live in Korea he was huge. Fan Korean based organization. But then I asked him. Okay. So why why are they? So Common Korea is this normal there why our guys not getting drilled in the head and he didn't know and I was super intrigued by that. So I got in touch with another Korean baseball expert, a commentator for the Daniel Kim who is based in Korea, and he had so many great stories about backflips and what they meant there in how they were so common but he also didn't know why or where it started and he told me you should just come here and figure it out. So that's what I did. So, you actually go to Korea and this I. Remember I, remember it sounding like one of the great expense report boondoggles ever. But you actually go to Korea with Mickey and your story begins in in Bussan right and so what do you actually find when you travel across the ocean and get there So we went to Poussin, which is a extremely large seaside city on the southern tip of South Korea. So they have a very popular team, the low tech giants, and the first thing we do is we go to a game at stadium and. It was revelatory.

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.

"Well, even winner team was crap in two thousand seventeen twenty eighteen last year too. So Hey, five five like I'd be fine with three out of ten maybe four would be awesome. But I think it's like the raise is split a series of the raise your ecstatic 'cause he split five out five or five to ten with the anti-israel. Thrill very, very four illusory. All junior to smashing Yankee pitching. Yeah. Yeah that's true. So you look at. The state of the standings right now our biggest competition is Boston Boston. Baltimore. We are in agreement that even though numerically they're only half a game behind Baltimore we don't see Detroit making a push right we don't. We don't see them making too much noise right Agree. I don't think the Tigers Tiger's are still building and I think they're treating it that way with the call up by in school bar. What is there? Other pro last name whatever his name is they're treating it like, hey, we can develop but if we can walk into a playoff spot, that's the all the better so Same thing with Seattle there. Obviously sellers right now they're not going to get there. So barring any moves are our biggest competition for a playoffs by is Baltimore take a look at the Baltimore Orioles schedule. It's a little bit as daunting as ours. Right? So we got us for the next three not including tonight. Then they got the mets to then they got the. Yankees to then the mets again. Then the Yankees again the braves then the raise the raise again and then the red sox and then the Blue Jays again right and they still have to make up that game the. Yeah they gotta make up that raise game from last night rate so I'd much rather have a double header against the red sox in the raise. You know what I'm saying. So that could be two losses Ray in a day for the Orioles. So their schedule is pretty much mirror to ours in terms of difficulty but I do give the Blue Jays an advantage because I don't know they've been performing well, it seems to be clicking and I just can't see the orioles maintaining the sense of I. Don't know push or whatever you WANNA call it towards a postseason talk yeah..

"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..

"The Blue Jays will still get that game, and if that is something that you were concerned with me, I didn't really think about it I didn't really care but I did think it was worth noting because I did hear it on the broadcast but all right, let's without anything to do last night because like. Baseball and it's like, ok. Guess what you guys said I thought about all this stuff and thought how I personally better myself. Yes exactly why can I bring to the table and? I will find a way. Yes. I agree and I and I think that that goes for all of us to write. We're not look I have my fault. We all have our own faults on the dumbest Guy in the Shatt right here. So what do I know but when it comes to when it comes to these issues, this is something that my wife and I have been paying particularly close to this is something that we are trying to be as active as possible as best as we can, and that is the difficulty of this because how do we do it properly ray Effectively, how do we go about approaching this issue to make an impact and I'm not talking grand impact like an Impact I don't have that sort of impact I. Don't have that sort of. Influence on people maybe I don't know. But what I'm saying is, what can I do with my small little voice? To make an impact that's what's important. If very small voices do this simultaneously no become a wave and that the point. So. Good on you guys I'm glad we're able to talk about it. But we'll talk some bluejays. Trade deadline trade deadline coming and like we just said at the top of the show, we are very excited to talk possibly Blue Jays baseball and it's looking more and more likely as every game goes on. Now the Blue Jays have made two trades already both to the mariners less notably they have acquired Dan Vogel back for the mayor's in exchange for cash considerations I had pretty much an off year and it's kind of redundant when you think of the rowdy to as position they're they're almost sort of the same player except rowdies raking right now. It's a power bat off the bench uncle but more importantly and more recently, they traded for Taiwan Walker and exchange for cast considerations or that player to be named. Later, this guy always gets traded it's crazy player to be named..

"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.

"blue jays" Discussed on The Bronx Pinstripes Show - Yankees MLB Podcast
"Where the BLUEJAYS ARE GONNA be playing? It Dunedin would be easy. It would be completely seamless because the Blue Jays obviously own the the ballpark down there play Spring Training Games where the Dunedin Blue Jays play they actually just recently renovated it and spruce it up. They also recently renovated their entire player development complex down there. They would have absolutely everything that a major league ballplayer could want or need the thing they can't guarantee is the actual health of the players down there because obviously the case numbers in Florida has been out of control. So players have actually been pretty public and saying, we don't want to go play in Florida we don't want to be in Pinellas can't. So that is now off the table buffalo is. Option would be relatively easy for the Blue Jays is lauded infrastructure upgrades have to happen there in terms of the lights, which of the major league quality in terms of the clubhouses and on the weight room and all of syllables the big league ballplayers want need and a blue jays have people in Buffalo assessing that right now and they're looking at making those upgrades bought again, the players have come out and said we WANNA, play a major league facility. They do not want to play in a minor league ballpark for a variety of reasons. So that has led the bluejays to Alternative options of sharing at MLB facility with another club, and there's a bunch of different scenarios there. One of them would be Pittsburgh at PNC park in the pirates of actually come out made a statement that they would welcome the Blue Jays to come share their facility there into play the regular season home schedule in Pittsburgh. Another option would be Baltimore and Pasta, split between Baltimore and Washington which obviously nearby one another. If you look if you admission Camden, park is the bay warehouse in right field, you could put a you know you can put a clubhouse out there and build something. to be able to use instill respect the distancing protocols is put in place in all that. So that's another option to me. I think the those are those are the most likely options by think probably, the Blue Jays end up at something of a hybrid in that they start the season on the road three Tampa than three games in Washington and. Other actually spoke a story, two games in Washington and under supposed to host two more games against Washington. So really that to into home with Washington ought to just become four days in Washington against nationals, and then from there blue supposed to host the phillies for three games on Philadelphia like two hours away from Washington. So the Blue Jays could just go to. Play at Citizens Bank Park Phillies, and they go on the road again in our don't have another home date until the middle of August..
"blue jays" Discussed on The Lead
"Started to become less of an ideal plan B., and then we saw another plan emerged where the Blue Jays could potentially play in Buffalo. Buffalo is where the Blue Jays have their AAA affiliate the Bison. The problem with that is. Is that it's a minor league ballpark. The facilities are really not up to the standards that MLB players would be used to, and also of particular concern is that it's not a very large facility when you're talking about clubhouses, weight rooms even dugouts all that kind of stuff. And you know that's inconvenient, but it's also potentially dangerous.
"blue jays" Discussed on The Lead
"Athlete. It stays with you. So Caitlin the NBA major league soccer and the NWF saw all decided to return to play by putting their teams in one location but Major League baseball took the opposite approach. It's having teams play home games. How did the League arrive at that decision not to play essentially in a bubble? Yeah, I think early on. We saw one example where teams would gather in Arizona and Florida, the site of a bunch of spring training facilities, but that plan really didn't take off much among a myriad of positive proposals under consideration to spring training sites in Florida. Arizona with completely rely divisions and no fans cactus league winner plays a grapefruit league winner in a dome and November. them concern was tied to players might not be on board with that. It would have been maybe three plus months away from families, so it just really never took off very far. And because the bubble idea never off the one Canadian team r.i.p Expos the Toronto Blue Jays. We're going to have to cross the US Canada border constantly during the season, and clearly that posed a problem. Yes, so essentially, the US Canadian border is closed off to non essential travel right now, so people can enter the country affair, essential workers, but if you are entering the country, the expectation is that you are supposed to quarantine for fourteen days and the border services are staying on top of people. They're calling people that come into the country. They'll do house visits to make sure that people are staying where they're supposed to be stained so. I'm taking it very seriously Canadians. Who refused to follow the rules? After coming home or coming to this country could get a visit from the Mounties, and those who disobey could face fines of up to seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars, and up to six months in prison, and yet despite those concerns, the Blue Jays tried to get permission to play Home Games in Toronto Anyway. What kind of efforts to the? The organization go through to try and get a special exemption. There was a lot of lobbying on the part of bluejays wanted this to happen. The preference all along with to play in Toronto is their home ballpark. There's a competitive advantage just because the players are used to the Rogers Centre. This is where all their stuff is or weight room. They know everything. There also was a lot of talk from. From the players point of view about the competitive advantage that they would have just been in Canada the situation with covid nineteen is a little bit better in Canada than it is in the United States right now. There's less cases occurring every day in Toronto. If they were playing in Toronto they would have been pretty much the safest team in MLB because they would not have been exiting the only time. Time. They would be was when they're traveling. We'll the Canadian government ultimately denied the Blue Jays requests. What did the federal government say in its response over the weekend Canadian? Immigration Minister Marco Mendocino released a statement, and essentially what it boiled down to the Canadian government was uncomfortable with the cross-border travel required for mobile return to play the fact that the regular season proposal would require a lot of crossword travel. The advice that we got was that there were serious risks that remained therefore. We concluded that there was not a principle based on which the issue national interest exemption he reiterated that Canada has done a lot of work to flatten the curve, and it's taken a lot of pride in how we've been able to manage the virus here and Canadians have made a lot of sacrifices and they just on the advice of health experts. They decided to say they would not allow to play in Canada. Look I. Get it I'm a lifelong Jay Stan we're not taking decisions fans, we're taking decisions on the basis of evidence and the advice receive to protect the health and safety of all Canadians and what's been the public response to that decision in Canada. General public opinion was they didn't want the bluejays here you know, and it's interesting dynamic because Canadians and Tronto Onians are blue Jays fans, and there's a lot of pride in that. Bluejays routinely talk about themselves as Canada's team and they're. They're happy that they represent a nation the only team that can say they do that, and so it was interesting to see that public opinion here was that they really didn't think the risk was worth it as much as they love the Blue Jays. They didn't really want to open up our country to any sort of risks. What about the players? How did Blue Jays players respond to the government's ruling? After the Canadian government came down the Blue Jays. Players were really disappointed I they were all really reasonable in their responses. Definitely respect. The decision made by the Canadian government. We're still disappointing because we were all looking forward to playing in Toronto. But totally understand. The global pandemic going on. It will probably take some adjusting to. Get to know a new ballpark, but I think the blue. Jays will be relieved just to have some certainty because that's another thing that they've been dealing with fervently longtime. While the Blue Jays won't be allowed to play. Home Games in Toronto, the NHL will be hosting home games in Canada. Can you briefly explain how the NHL Playoffs are going to work? Yeah, so the NHL is operating there to hub cities in Canada. One will be in Toronto, and one will be in Edmonton, and the NHL is calling it kind of like a secure zone and I think that secure zone includes the hotels and the arenas and restaurants. Players can also go to, but. But essentially players will come into Canada this weekend. Players will start arriving. They'll enter the bubble and they really can't leave that bubble and because NHL players are not leaving that bubble. There's no travel involved the only time the leave. The BABAS for good because our team's been knocked out, Canada is just a comfortable with that situation will so this really is a health decision right from the Canadian government's perspective. This isn't about Canada showing favouritism of hockey over baseball or is it? I. Mean I think that people have differing opinions? I think the Canadian government would say yes. It's a public health decision. And ultimately like I said they just felt uncomfortable with the travel that was involved in 'em obeys plan you know optically could look like favoritism, and it does make you wonder why why they were more willing to make it work for.

"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..

"But from everything that I've seen everything that I've heard all the experts scouts everyone. They just all the praise his hitting ability, and he has more patients than his father like as you mentioned. He drew more walks than he struck out his his plate recognition is just ridiculous in his bat. Speed is second to none. You put those two together. And it's like I don't want to get ahead of ourselves here before it even gets called up. But it's almost like he's on all the hall of fame track with with those kinds of skills. You just hope he stays healthy enough tab along and and fruitful career is he going to be the opening day starter or are they still going to just grind him out down there and triple as don't the year. Yeah. No, I I don't think so they're going to game the system, of course, for the to get that seventh year of service time someone asks me on Twitter today, actually. He said when is what's the day? We can circle on her calendar because I think I can't remember the exact number of days. I think it was one hundred seventy two days is a year of service time. So if the Blue Jays wait until April eleventh, they could call them up and without penalty for that extra year. So I think that's he won't make the opening day. If he does I will be really surprised. So I think it's probably Brandon jury so long as he's healthy. But I would give it probably three weeks into the twenty one thousand nine season and flat will be in Toronto. And then that means that for people that don't know he can still be under team control for an extra year, basically. Yeah. So if they call them up opening day, he would be only there's only six years of of team control. But if they wait that extra. Whatever it was fifteen days. They get an additional a seventh year of control. So when you have a player of this kind of cow over you wanna do that for a front office perspective because you like if you're going to zoom in extra year? That's that's gonna look really bad on you. You want to keep him in Toronto as long as humanly possible like ideal you wanna sign him to a contract extension. But you kind of have to go into it assuming that you only get those seven years. So you've gotta maximize it rather than only get six. Well, and they did this. Oh, go ahead galls. There's there's two there's two ways that this is you can either go the route, which is the way that we're talking about in the fact that, you know, you wait wait for this kit, and you wait for the that those fifteen days, and you bring the kid up or you go the way that the Red Sox did make the mistake of bringing Mookie Betts up before that day in because of that the Red Sox lost next year year. Mookie betts. Yeah. And especially for the Blue Jays like there's no there's no advantage really to bringing them up on opening day. They're not planning on contending and twenty and nineteen that two weeks is not going to make or break the Blue Jays season in from a business perspective. It just doesn't make sense..

"To the right side and wind up playing first and second, right? The the thing about Vlad in particular. He's got a really strong arm. So I if you can keep them on the infield, and he's non liability than I think the Blue Jays would prefer to keep them there. You know, he's a bit of a bigger bodied third basement to put it lightly. So many around the game of question whether he has the durability to play at the hot corner and probably down the line any he shifts over to to first base. But yeah, just the fact that he's got such a solid arm. I I think you keep them there. And as far as his future. Yeah. I've had some people ask me whether the Blue Jays should just kind of try and buy out a few of his arbitration years right now, just you know, sign sign a giant contract before even hits the major leagues and from a front office perspective. Of course, you want to do that. Because you want to lock them in by those Arbor's save yourself a little bit of money down the line them from the players perspective. I mean, this guy is I looked at his fan grass projections and he's projected that have like a five win season next year as a rookie, which is I think it was like the fifteenth best. He's projected at the fifteenth best position player season in two thousand nineteen which was around like Aaron judge territory as a rookie. And that's also accounting into the fact that he might not get he probably going to get called up until mid April. So it's just like I'm still trying to wrap my head around. All these. Things. I think if he isn't a superstar at it. It's gonna feel like a disappointment in Toronto..

"Replacement level season but does he leave avoid in any other way obviously he was sort of the public international face of the team but was he important clubhouse presence as well i think he was i mean to the extent that i can tell you things i got the sense that he was very certainly very well respected by his peers including guys like marcus stroman he's close with and many many other players of the team i think that when you look at the teesta 's legacy it's like it's it's incredible legacy and tronto he did so many things the backflip alone is is statue worthy and even beyond that you have home run titles postseason appearances and you just have this incredible incredible run of production but like you said last year he was so unproductive that i really think it was time for the blue jays to move on from him and find someone who can actually produce more so i don't think that he's going to be missed in any kind of concrete way in twenty eighteen because the guys he was closest with bill still hang out with them they'll still tax them they can still lean on him not quite to the same extent of course but he still does have those relationships and that kind of extends beyond the toronto blue jays to people as individuals but yeah there's no question that you know there's gonna come time hopefully when a lot of blue bluejays fans were in attendance when the blue jays can really recognize what he's meant to this franchise all right you listen to the podcast you know how these things end give us the two thousand eighteen win total for the toronto blue jays i you're right all ready have my answering advanced eighty four win eighty four i think is not too crazy high i think it reflects that they have the depths behind the roster that you see on it'll the charts if you just look at that group twenty five players i think that there is some talent that's gonna make its way through the system i'm not talking gravel or shut but i think there's enough there that they can be competitive and in that mix for awhile card by the way the blue.

"Contract is impending free agency going to be a storyline throughout the season is at one of those cases where the player just says okay that's it we had our chance to talk about an extension but now the season started and that's over or is there some chance that something could potentially be you worked out during the season and would there be interest in resigning him or would he just have to give way to flat junior or the next wave of bucci as players there was this really bizarre events relatively early spring training this year where donaldson told the media that essentially he was going to move past all extension talks publicly and from his standpoint he was expecting to hit free agency because he had tried to discuss that with the blue jays and it just ultimately haven't gotten to the point that they felt they were close enough that it was worth continuing on and then the next day ross atkins gm came out and said that he was still optima that they would get an extension done and then it was just something they hadn't done yet they they were still hopeful getting done to me unless josh donaldson wants to find and believes that their close you're not in that area where you can really have a serious discussion about it so my expectation is that he's gonna play probably put up five or six win season and then hit free agency and probably signed with another team so just as smoke last season was going thank rafts numbers he was worth three point four wins above replacement which sent his career total to three point seven wins above replacement justice i was putting together a table not investigating smoke specifically but i'm pretty sure when i looked at it the other day just the smoke just did between twenty sixteen in two thousand seventeen i think he had the biggest ever year to year drop in straight for a hitter does also notable so i know that the blue jays were laugh at a little bit when they kept smoke around before his breakout and now he's going into.
