Years old A bunch of buddies of mine. A date fact where i grew up in dayton ohio poker was real popular with the kids and We started a regular weekly gave when we were like in the eighth grade.

What to Do When You Can't Find God
"Several years ago i read a book by a j swoboda called the dusty ones in it. He shares a story about his from high school whose name was stew. Stew met jesus through his friendship with jay and they quickly became zealous. An excited together. They read the bible. They prayed in front of lockers. And stu felt close to god in those days will soon. Aj lost touch after graduation as often happens in about ten years later they reconnected and that was when aj learned that statue no longer called himself a christian because once he went off to college he stopped feeling the presence of now. I'm not here to debate the reality of stews relationship with god or the validity of his conversion or even the role of feelings as they mix with our faith. But what i do wanna talk about. Is this experience. That many friends of jesus either have gone through are going through or will go through and that is the experience of the loss of the felt presence of god. The truth is we won't always feel god's presence. I know some believers who say they've never really felt god's presence. I don't want that to be true but it is true. The good news is this is nothing new. For generations and generations christians have wandered through the wilderness have walked through. The valley of the shadow have navigated life in the midst of difficulty loss and seemingly impossible circumstances. If you are walking through your own wilderness right now. You are not alone even if you feel alone. Saint john of the cross called his experience of not feeling god's presence a dark night of the soul martin. Luther called it. The scandal of god's hidden nece and barbara brown taylor in her book learning to walk in the dark. She says no. One chooses the dark knight. The dark night descends.

Targeting Demographics in Podcasting With Jay Green
"Targeting demographics in podcasting can get a bit tricky. Data can tell you who is in the digital household you're targeting but not necessarily in that household is listening. I wrote about this in my article. Can you target podcast listeners. By demographic which all lincoln the description. I spoke with jay green cadence. Thirteen a division of odyssey. I worked with j. A few times was working at barometric claratyne metaphor. He get the gist. We got a chance to speak about demographics and how podcasting is new avenues to use them. What you don with cadence thirteen has been really cool. Like you guys have been one of the first people that i've worked with to really focus on demographic targeting and interesting ways so demographic targeting is the mindset that we're looking for the individual right or looking for the household or taken the information instead of focusing on what show there at we're gonna instead focus on who is accessing it Which is a neat way to target when you guys use that. Is that how you focus every campaign or is it an additive thing for specific campaigns at that. That's a great question. You know kind of backing up a little bit the mediums. Come off it's evolved in so many different ways One of the big pieces. As i know you wrote about it today dynamic insertion and what it can bring to the table there. This is kind of the next evolution of that You have your direct responsibility. Performance players they want to be part of the episodic you have brands. Who want to be able to your brands. Who want to run across series and networks. This is that next iteration. So i don't wanna say it's the go-to because they really isn't one go to Y pigeonhole yourself that way but what this does allow for. It allows for extensions of campaigns and allows for larger budgets allows for tickets. Created a synergy if you will so if you have client x. who's buying episodically in they're buying and shows that are geared towards female eighteen to thirty four. You can pick those select shows and have your host reads and Have your personal endorsements any personal experiences and now what you can do also as you can target take that target.

When i was in my early twenties and i come from the The nippy generation of the sixties and seventies when long hair was in and it was very embarrassing to me. And i was very uncomfortable with it so when i was twenty two years old i had a toupee bait and i had already been playing pool for several years since i was eighteen and gambling at it and i found i discovered this was happened by accident that as soon as i put a to pay on and went back someplace that i hadn't been in a year people did not recognize me. They didn't know that it was me. And kind of accidentally I played the same guys that i might have won money from two three years before i had to the more than one occasion. Where guy said you know. You look familiar to me. But i can't place you. Yeah i said you know. A lot of people say that i would happen by accident. That wearing a toupee was advantageous to me in the pool world.

"That's what i want out of any any any. Follow up on that on that gift you do you know. I would love to have springer on this team. I think that when you have that at outfield position filled. And you have that sort of depth in your system that having to give up any player personnel. You're just giving up at that point just money. I think it's a must for the blue jays at this point right. We're we're talking about trade ships and what we're going to have to give up and how we're going to have to fill the void in comparison to just signing. Someone a sounds easy enough but again you're right yet to convince that player to want to come into fifty fifty marriage at that point I'm for it man. Sign me up. And if it i think last week we settled on seventy eight years. He thirty one. You were talking about an eight year contract. It's a lot for me. It assuming the blues have the goal a little high on the on the term. It's a lot for me having a player until thirty nine. Forty but if you're playing for if you're paying rather for three or four years of a leap production as the costume businessman and that's a future adam. Problems future bluejays problem. I don't care that someone else's problem sounds like tried to lewinsky trade s future guy. Guys man. I don't care polit up all up. What are your thoughts. The want that as christmas gift i will have no issues with that as christmas gift. Unfortunately as much as like i said i have one gripe on the content of what happened in the past with george springer in the team that blew slapped mentioning name the he tracks too. Many boxes for the blue jays makes too much sets there assist. He plays smeller defensively satterfield. We the center fielder we need. Somebody hit the middle of the or it. There's as many things and like when you can literally to solve this solving it with money and we have money. It shouldn't be a problem. is literally just. They had to convince him to like you. Set play buffalo nick. Although the bills went ring maybe play and later a little bit. What in all reality. I do think the bluejays are actually going to get a chance to play. Some games drought this year regardless of what starts the season would-be where i live bovis. Yeah i wouldn't be the first. Half of the season. For the all star break is on the road then reevaluate where the vaccine is at and how many people have been vaccinated. And maybe you play in toronto. The second half after the all star break another toddlers was realistic. That that can be banned stands by that point too but adam second gift Want back in just. The sheriff people interrupted that that george springer was gift along with. What you're saying is our good buddy x twenty four rocks Same thing in about five other people that was their christmas wishlist from our twitter quite back. Gimme springer once spraying.

"jay" Discussed on Jay Bird Watching
"Belongs in there personally. Yeah yeah look. I'll preface by saying you guys obviously got to see employ more than i did Being younger than you guys but Everything i've heard of how impactful he was to the blue jays organization and just being able to look at his baseball reference. Page right now like you just go look and you see somebody like some opping stats go through like seventeen triples in nineteen ninety for shortstop primarily who would get anywhere from sixty to set. Rbi's is a season He could ship him stolen basis. He did it he like. He did a lot of everything good. It doesn't seem like he did one thing elite and look. I don't want anybody to know what accurate something there was. Nothing he did bad. He did everything above average race. Thought it wasn't like you said it didn't because it was the collective good now. Oh it was monster. Home run hitter are as like riddick. Anderson stole nine hundred bases right. Yeah so i think you have to do two or three. Things elite to get into the hall of fame nowadays really or at least that should be the criteria. Unless you have been like ten time all star you've won a few awards especially mvp's mvp's huge like. There's no doubt if the blue jays were to ever do what are what fans had hoped for so long as a little museum in the rogers centre statues. Tony fernandez is getting a statue. There's no doubt about that. Easily number one him and george bell just for what they did in terms of some of the older guys delgado and whatnot all safe from what i've seen on on here. I've heard about him You'd probably should've stayed on the ballot hall of fame. You kinda reminds me mark the name a lot tonight but you did a lot of very good things but nothing. That was elite. All right so do you want to earn. Brought up the next guy. Yeah yeah. I want to briefly talk. George val the mvp first tronto. Blue jay mvp. The and i. I'm just assuming we're gonna talk more about the guys that were like literally this close in a few minutes so but like i said i blue jay. Mvp was a rule five pick for the toronto blue jays. Literally a rags to riches story of gone from lake okay. Well you're a wild card to one of the best players in baseball yes. It was a very brief window. But guys the only ended up getting one point two percent on the ballot in nineteen ninety nine Pulling up the actual ballot the winners that year were robin young. George brett brian so another elite class and buy more hall of famers on that ballot. So i know to premier. George bell is the him barfield and Moesby the powder blues man. That's all that's all. I think when i think of the powder blues dry for you know i ended up watching. I'm i was born in eighty four so going back and watching it here. My dad talked about the drive rating. Five and everything like that was key. There was a really really good old. Vhs that's on youtube that. I would highly recommend everybody. About eighty-five season was really really fun to watch. So that was a covid. Watch me guys so but anyway anything. Yeah i think you know although a fantastic player. I think you nailed it when he said rags to riches in terms of how we broke into the big leagues. I'm just not sure that there's enough there to be a hall of famer outside of the mind fans and obviously to to us as jas fan said this earlier. The the blinders are on a little bit. He's fantastic but we're talking about eligible thinki- quite cuts the mustard. Yeah think he's oddly. In that tori hundred category for. Yeah i can see harrison. He was very good for a very good a good window. But it didn't get that crazy lengthy needs for career for a major league baseball. Yeah no i mean. The one thing that george bell does have Isn't mvp obviously the first one to win it as a blue jay definitely carry some weight and also two time all star And you never wanna world series looking at here. I keep on forgetting that did not win the blue jays because he was on the white sox in ninety two and ninety three in the cubs ninety one But that's the only really thing that could be for. George bell's candidacy is winning that mvp In one thousand nine hundred seven. He was league that year but the other years you look at it thirty one home runs. Twenty eight on runs. Eighteen twenty five so it just seems like that year. Everything clicked for george bell That you wanted to. Mvp up but that's there's nothing else it's like. Yeah he should be on the ballot longer or you should have been more consideration for the hall of fame again. Yeah comparison for george bell so just because the war and the career is almost oddly similar. I have to bring up. Joe carter guys. Blue jays fans loved him. Everybody were rant and rave about how good he was a blue jay but in all reality joe car was one of the best. Rbi producers through his career in baseball. The cats being defense doesn't carry only had he has pretty much the exact same career war as George balboa's around twenty so when you're talking about guys that eventually hall of fame there your air in the forties fifties sixties for a collective career for war. So but joe. Carter did get three point. Eight percent on the two thousand four ballot and funny enough is teammate. Made it all mahler. So i wanted to touch on the too similar to the joke. Heart are george belt thing. Then move on. I mean. I think it's actually. It doesn't really hold up asthma as because especially for blue jays fans we have one particular memory of him and i'm not saying there aren't others. I'm saying the one that stands out. Obviously once yeah the one that stands out as obviously the fan know that to us is always going to be memorable but when you look at his career yeah couple all star nods but i i just don't know that he holds enough way again to be considered a hall of famer ever just maybe twenty points higher than four earned five hundred home runs. That would be. Maybe where you you'd be on. Joe carter they boyfriend. I didn't mean to step onto their. it's all good. is bp was terrible He's career he believes three zero six. That's not that's not nearly hall of fame numbers right there and we say all this blue jays fans didn't change their viewpoint thoughts on these guys at blue jays but we're speaking from the collective. Mlb like everybody knows. Joe carter for that one thing and i take a lot of people assume that joe carter was a superstar player but in reality he was a good player. I wouldn't is very very good. But he's a good player and he had that one incredible moment that until we get another similar incredible moment. I hope we do so. We can tone down the joe. Carter talk a little bit Yeah that's all he is. He's a good player Any again Like some of the other guys. I don't think he did anything elite. I think he did a few things good but when you look at his numbers. Wasn't that good right. I'm not that good good times. So other than that fellas Let's move on somebody. I'm really shocked. I didn't get some extra votes. Is john older rubes guy on my list and this one honestly dumbfounded to this.

He. It will be pitching a smile understanding he starting tomorrow being Saturday against the Orioles. So that's It's time we pick where to be Brennan I'M GONNA. Go Rowdy because rowdies been high and if we're going to trade chip, keep that fire going do and maybe you can give us a fucking phenomenal return that'd be great So I'm going to go around and they go. Just for the record Adam I gave you the week because last week we had like you said. Kevin visit into its on travis shot into anything for Brandon and Vladi I had the best week best yeah. That's right around it. Time that some of those balls are actually getting elevated more than two degrees author. Yes. Coming around the hard right at people. It's scary for some of those third baseman short saps guys. Yes. By the diamond right now. So The scoreboard accurate. I have zero. And is each have a win each and we gave a guest spot wins for Anthony, caver? Bobby. PAALEA, only fair only fair. Thank you not as brother he did pretty damn well, of course. Good pick. Even if he wasn't his brother, it's a good pick. All right. Well. That's it for bluejays talk but I do want to give it to you Craig. We you mentioned on twitter that there's a contest that were running all let you spill the beans on the details so people can listen and maybe they want to submit. The appropriate material for the contest had taken away. So the lovely details for everybody listening, we are doing a new logo contest and this new logo whichever one we deem necessary out of everything that floods our twitter in box.

"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..

"On. Yeah Yeah? So I was all over that idea because. As much as I love you. Guys and I have been only getting more and more enamored with them. Nowadays, a blue Jay I liked him when he was even a dodger. So here seeing them come here is only a bit better the fact that we could have somebody like that up at the top of our our starting rotation as well along with now. Taiwan Walker who we are rally hoping to get a good audition from try to resign. Coming, the end of the season yeah. You get that going then you had any Pearson and company out. Night you came out of nowhere must have been the doubles cup. So. You get him in that or somebody at this point if they're gonNA literally just last throw prospects Assen you don't want something. And you know it's not going to be the during grow chances and whatnot they're sitting around in Rochester right now. I don't see how you can go wrong with any of this like I said I don I dumped ten players to be named later on somebody get Trevor Bauer? Yes or no? Because my biggest problem with this lineup right now is we have a glaring hole. Fuck is going on third base. Shaw hasn't been able say completely help even though he has looked good what he's played and you're not gonNA put Laddy Vogel Bach. Rowdy. Anybody over there. I think really get those wraps until maybe bubba shut gets hopefully healthy and you can play San Diego all there. But that's still only this much of an upgrade right? Right. You could go out maybe go third a real third baseman and ro in Travis Shaw and get somebody to solidify that place for us because right now until it becomes Jordan Roshan's position or whoever There's not really anybody holding down the fort for the third base. So yeah your. Main. Objective is to grab an infielder in the trademark this point. After grabbing Taiwan Walker, they haven't really stayed in the fact that we're screwed with shoemaker or Pearson or anything yet. So are you pushing the panic button right now? To, just throw them onto prospects away for another pirates guy right into talking about. I don't I don't see I'd rather almost right it out with St. What you get out of Taiwan Walker and that's your big moving starting rotation and without good Brockie K. and Hatchet Ben Ryan role is with one of them and just seeing what I I almost feel like the way they've been pitching there. Anybody we're GONNA randomly get on trade market right now. I don't disagree with that I do think there's probably the biggest hole. This team has right now been a lot of inconsistency over there. We've seen from jury when he's played Travis Shaw has been very streaky He's had a lot of few hot three more called three but. Yeah I I still think honestly if it were me, I still going after one of those pirates aren't. That were remarried and Trevor Williams or tried cool were there and you have the relationship already with with Ben Sherrington. Right so jerry didn't know this is the like none other that kind of frightens me the fact that.

"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. What are your thoughts also should be noted that today is MLB celebration of Jackie. Robinson days usually held in April but today given the shortened season. This is celebrating it that was a word salad for me you can take it over. Now, very good way to start it off out of MRS discussion that everybody should have especially with three of us who are Caucasian male over the age of twenty eight.

"You never know and when you had that kind of pure talent I'm not saying this is like Bryce Harper level might be i. don't think it. Could be. Yeah, he's there is nobody saying that he's anything short of a major leaguer. Right? That is point one way or the other. You have a stand out guy. He might make it to be. You're superstar like some people are projecting him to be, but this is an everyday player that we're going to have in our system for a lawns is. The biggest thing I think is we know is basking to carry us where he's going to fit in on the diamond itself, I think Adam, and then we run away with us. That's what I'm saying like it's it's June twelve, two thousand and twenty Mark My words by twenty twenty five. He's going to be on the Canadian colliver of MLB. The show you more Oh. There's the bold prediction. By twenty twenty five watch stamped it. Seal it is. It's an audio so you? Take through the Archives of Jaybird watching find this episode. That guy haven't played the lottery sometimes. I made some really good calls on that kind of thing over the year, but I don't WanNa, take credit for one of them right now. I said Never Roberto assume it was gonNA. Come up right after mark. Stroman got hurt and spring training. And I said he was going to run away with a jaw. Which means that it did yeah. I was right about that, but I didn't think about how bad of a person and other things that are. Filled in. Reality you might be a good person that one incident, but as far as it goes I'm not gonna be doing that, and then I actually called in the beginning of the season that I said you'd be dumped Jose Reyes. Dolinsky Jala matters as and guess what happens before the end of the season was nuts. They might not have the best career Blue Jay, but he was better than Jose. Reyes. Yes, yes. During that season I would like to go back and watch two thousand fifteen highlights and see how many ground balls went through raises likes. Gone it was gone. Yeah, it was I. Mean I know that was a as favorite player? That's why he wanted to trade for him so bad. It was a difficult trade. Him Away was days learned a little bit more than that since I think Oh. Yeah, at Baltimore are the Atlanta Braves team is looking rather ridiculous. And but I just think shocked me. I think the most about it is..

"Everybody is in full agreements that we might have gotten the best pick number five. There was a debate among tigers twitter. You'll look at it and and other people that they could've taken Martensson Torkelsson best rhetorical. Some another Uber Prospect, but there is an equal case for Martin as well to be taken there. And he talked about being able to maybe plug and play him after drafting off. He's only a few months younger than Vladi and he's already up around the same as bill. Why not if he's polished enough? Right, now if I was starting to season, and you guys were given me in the if the Bazeley baseball rule roster, stuff was just enough different. I have a chance of winning fifty game season as a blue Jay fan right. Throw them in there. See what happens worst case scenario. He's learning from major league players in the season where there is no minor league baseball. So and I think that could be said for some of the other picks. We're GONNA talk about here shortly, but. I just don't see Martin, being shortstop like he was drafted. As we have much debts at shortstop I. Don't know how you guys feel about that. I wonder if he doesn't work out in the outfield. And he just turned into Stud and let's say he's up here maybe next year or two thousand, twenty, two in groceries, and still in the minors and the blue. Jays are kind of hovering around five hundred. Maybe the guys above I seriously wonder especially 'cause wealth. They got down on the system or Elvis Martinez is also third base source off as well right so. Report there, yeah, very young, but he's talented enough or you can come quickly. I think this pick maybe for me. At least pushes grow sense for there to the trade block where you need that last pick or higher now. No, no. We had back in February. Whatever where if you get the right guy? And only find groceries if the right guy especially now that you have Martin in there. And he laid the majority of his I'm at Third Base Vanderbilt, so it could work. Because I was gonna say I was going to say like if we have these positional players and we're using them. Pretty much capital to liquidate to get these. Top of the line front of the rotation aces that could be very beneficial, and those are the types of players that we kind of need like no disrespect to Ri-, he's The aced today, but sorry, really he. He's the today, but he's not like the ace of the future so if he can trade groceries for someone pretty young I think that can be beneficial, so I have an issue with that because we are. We have a lot of backlog when it comes to me, talent, yeah! which is crazy? Talk but I think this goes to an old saying that Russell Martin said when he was still in the club. You build a team up the Middle Catcher, second shore in Senator, and then obviously you need have plenty of arms in that situation and guys I think they've gotten to the point where they know they have enough arms coming, so that's why they went a little lower on some of these guys with the. I would say sure things with these other pitchers. Coming up on this draft lists that we're going to talk about your but Adam. If you started the season today is that Aset that we're all kind of dancing around for the future on your major league rosters. Start off the year. Nate. I still don't feel comfortable putting them in there like I know..

"Vanderbilt is a perpetual were college world series candidate, if not the victor and knowing somebody's coming out of this program in diving, literally full-on headfirst into our system, as adamant pointed out, he could be here as soon as. Whenever how we start playing baseball and that might be just because the blue jays lack of depth in the outfield, more or less put him on par with everybody, and you know you catch fire in everybody's watching. Never know what's going to happen and everybody from Scouts on Austin. Martin has been saying his bat is ready. which is saying something when he just finished up a season with only metal bats? So I. Know the Metal Bats for college baseball pretty much. Weight wise, not anything crazy. It's not like they're playing with a negative twelve I didn't lily. That's not a toothpick made out Lumina. But fellas. Everything. I've been reading all the video. Everything points to Austin Barton being a good fixture as the middle part of our lineup is concerned, and that's saying a lot with our middle of our lineup looks like currently. Yeah Yeah, he's. Now only so they're projecting him to be like a third baseman type player. He's kind of a good utility player from what he's been doing in college like he's been playing more. Positions, but ever GonNa take him at third that sort of a blessing in disguise because come around twenty twenty two. I think that that's when we're going to give up on the body experiment at third, even though he's got a great arm sort of wild, and I don't know what position is going to be working out from long-term so if you get rid of Rowdy Liz and shift over Atlanta. To first base that Infield, right in Bischette a Craig and Vladi. That whole you know. Infield is just amazing and to think about that. That could happen. Come twenty twenty two home, and that gives me so much optimism. I love and. Even then if he put in there, what are you doing with? San Food because he got. Ready by twenty twenty three right like they're. They're loaded in the INFIELD. Me personally just from seeing the video is seen on Martin playing. Center Centerfield fell. Modestly kind of encouraged letting him play Centerfield okay, and seeing that he is the Kevin version of what can actually hit April right. And don't get me wrong. I love watching employer and his tenure as a blue Jay but enabling only. Just so spurts. And watching the tape on Martin. is a beautiful fluid swing. It looks like he hasn't tweaked thing in his whole college..

You know that little Kimble thing you have that microphone you get like a little leash. Attach it to your fast. You can move around wherever you want. That'd be awesome question number five guys. Ooh That's an shot lug nuts. It's a beautiful little ballpark guys. You get a chance. I highly recommend it. If you're in lansing or even around Michigan Anyway Michigan's only so big. They're all three hours each other. I drove two hours out of my way to go. So it's only an hour outside of Detroit if we're that far. Yeah it's not too bad so I was in wherever the heck they make Humvees where I was I forget the name of the fuck in town so is what it is but anyways. Who did Roberto his famous nineteen ninety-two Homerun off of the Steve? Kerr say Todd Van Poppel Dennis Eckersley Rick Dosage or Roger Smithburg. This was the good one I have. The bobble head of this Homerun is awesome. Legs all do you. Do you have the The player he hit off of. I'M NOT GONNA give it out his reaction bobblehead because that would make me very very happy if I had that right next to each other. Is this more or less. Kit from fricken Arrested Development Walking in the rain. I'll be really the recreate that and bobblehead version as right up there with some of the ones that the what is the If there was a minor league baseball season this year the Yankees Minor League affiliate was handing out trash can looking ones.

Who was the manager that led them to the pet with a seato? Gaston Bobby Matic gene. Tenace Bobby Cox Roy Hartsfield Adam Slam dunking that one in and I just want to make I wanNA make sure people know that I'm not cheating. Go hand up so this picture though. I gotTa tell this story because it's funny this. I went to Spring Training with my dad and it was right when I met my girlfriend and I now basically my stepdaughter right. I bought her that doll. There's a stuffed animal right. What I was dollar. It literally is maybe about the size of my microphone. Really tally that doesn't look like the actual blue jays mascot so she thinks I'm bringing this giant monster thing. Home Sodas my now wife I get home and go here you go. And it's like the size of a TIC TAC. She goes she's three years three years old whereas the rest of it. Good Times plus number seven. Who was the Blue Jays first? Twenty game winner Jack. Morris Jimmy key Ray Halladay Pankin or Wanda's man. I'm being honest the guest. It was one of those ones that all those guys at one twenty games. It's one of the one of them. Definitely one them yes. It is definitely one of them. I can promise that all right. You guys want to take a break to taverny terrible shenanigans. Please feel free to interrupt me. No no no. I'm good pictures. Yeah it's amazing what you can do our point these days. Yeah I know but see how you guys talk the engagement photo. That's the GEICO in Toronto. We went there to celebrate the game where Marco Estrada dominated the Yankees. That was a Sunday. That was the Sunday and that was driving. A perk of being only four. Three hours away here in Rochester. My like I said you gotta dislike fly here and then you can ride over the border with me So question number eight the trial. Bluejays walk pitchers won three consecutive cy young awards from nine hundred ninety six to nine nineteen ninety eight. Roger Clemens was to those who was the other one was at one. Guthman Pat Hentgen. Paul quantrill Chris Carpenter or album Escobar. I know who was them? Apply question and sure because I actually looked up the Rosser those three years. And they're all on it and maybe the way for it. It's a heck of a lot as Sabail there you would think we were the better from ninety six to ninety eight one. You got your names on their cruiser. A key might be as they might not have peaked when they were Blue Jays. The couple like Chris Carpenter not peaking right but was it the Chris Carpenter that was cardinal. All right in my wonderful collective tour of Minor League ballparks. This would be the wonderful ballpark Bluefield. This was my actual view from the press. Box hanging out with Zach. How so question number? Nine Manny Ramirez has the longest home run in Rogers head Rogers Center Slash Skydome of one hundred ninety one feet. Sorry I don't have that in metric by which Blue Jay has a home team home run of four hundred eighty three the Carlos Delgado Jose Canseco. Joe Carter Fred mcgriff or Jose Bautista. And Yes do not forget. Jose can SACO did have one of the longest home runs as an a and he was actually a Toronto Blue Jay as well A heck of an offensive season with him in the middle of allied. He was better than the frigates six spot by that point to skirt. Yeah that's scary very scary. That was the year we had Tony Battista so once again me hanging out in Dunedin. Because I'm cool like that all beer. Where's the beer man? That is a slightly picture. Just saying that is freely pre-marriage free this free that that is pretty much right out of college. I have some friends that live in the town eating and I got to go down there pretty regularly. So why should number ten? Who was the Blue Jays first player to win a batting title? And yes these guys are all current bluejays like top five batting averages per seasons ransom mullenix Carlos Delgado Tony Fernandez Paul Molitor Johnny Ola. Route that ball. Who ON THEIR KINDA CRAZY? It's an insane one good year. Yeah I remember when they used to rotate out. Color commentators they had ostler have rent. Mullenix from the third guy. I can't remember back in like five or six I absolutely aid and Rams Mullenix guy and now I hate Adler and funny enough. I liked them the most about them. Now the question is.

"So than or ballpark. All around us more. Not Johm our all those guys. Back in the day but Young twins That could be A GIG OF VALUE TO Where the World Series? They beat play money right now. Yeah and they. I think with that offense we already had the most home runs and Major League Baseball last year. Minnesota twins and then you add Josh Donaldson and Company to that lineup. It's GonNa be scary scary there so but as far as what? The Red Sox are getting on this friend before we start diving into possible ramifications throughout the league and the trade. The Red Sox are trying to give their new management. Some flexibility they finally fire are hired. Ron Reinecke today. Apparently it was what the other news. Yeah which I thought was honestly for where their team is going a rather good move on their and I'm kind of upset about it. I want to plug in the red sox so as far as our team a somebody that's gonNA find a way to more or less. Get all the baseball guys that they do have after losing bats and price Reynecke Guy. I think that could live fire under the remainder guy's ass and it's not that they're losing. Everybody is a team. That's still going to have raphael divers who emerged as one of the best hitters in the American league basically last season or at least a doubles machine. Zander bogart still Andrew Benintendi. This is Oakland offense. That still young and has a lot that could go right for them but they also took a giant hit. Losing a former. Mvp and face of the franchise in somebody like Buki Bats. Aw Man I mean it's not stretch at all to see that movie. The last two maybe three seasons has been the second best player in baseball right behind. My Trout Mookie betts same talent and I if Boston Red Sox fan and beyond belief but they actually pulled the trigger and just did not want to pay. Mookie BETTS BECAUSE JD. Martinez would be. Were probably I would imagine with another good season the opting out of deal after next season. So you can use that cash to get rid of this. Thinking here prayed which doesn't make any sense to me so apparently the exchange numbers before this deal happen. The Red Sox came in at at believed ten three fifty or three hundred something like that and we came in at twelve four twenty. I believe so. There's already discrepancy there. So why do you think getting rid of that to get RID OF DAVID PRICES SALARY? Which is a law. There's a lot of money committed David price over the next three years. But why do you think mookie? Betts will come back to you if you didn't value them as much as he did. You had them if signed him and find a creative way to get rid of prices money that way. I don't know it just seems like a really backwards way of doing things. Because that's what people say people think that they're gonNA use the money saved from David Rights to try to resign. Mookie betts when he's a free agent but who's to say he's not going to be signed with the dodgers star in Los Angeles beautiful weather all the time and you were staggering tax right right. I completely agree so this is a very good chance. He could just fall in love with Los Angeles in research with the dodgers so this could backfire massive. Wait for the Boston Red Sox and hey coming off all here for it buddy. I'm here for it so being in New York. There's a plethora of Red Sox fans here and I know there's plenty of up in Toronto. Is I had a bunch of my friends. That are die hard red sox fans and honestly they are not even heard about. This whole thing is they. Didn't think that mookie betts ever had a chance of signing for that long term. They thought what are the other he was going to be gone and they wonder in. This is coming from a few people I know they wonder how much Buki bats is actually a flash in the PAN. I don't see that but I can see the argument enough to know okay. Maybe they seen something because they watch more. Mookie betts than I do because alls I see is a sportscenter highlight reel or when he's disturbing Jay's I mean I go back and look from start at Twenty fifteen so I'm GonNa Throw Twenty fifteen out the window try. It just started a two thousand sixteen. He had an eight point three F. Four two thousand seventeen went back down a little bit to five point three then. He had the insane twenty eighteen year. The Red Sox won the world series where he bat four three forty six four thirty. It'll be a one hundred eighty five way. The reds create plus and a ten point four four and even six point six last year. It's kind of hard to replicate at ten point. Four four season and six point six. That's aimed at the elite level. Stuff he's been in the league level player for three of the last four seat and so I mean I guess I don't know I kinda floored by my friend Yeah I I they also saw was two thousand this money that they can spend and spread out this the other catch. Maybe they go after anybody like that and they complement his team to the tune of what really brought the blue the Red Sox those world series in those years was really collectively spreading out the talent especially their most recent world series. Win Right Yogi Batson. All the company were emerging but in all reality. They're big star on the team at the time was jd Martinez so as far as who you just took it and wrote an open check for. There wasn't the previous Red Sox. Let's throw money at everything and get Manny Ramirez and run away with it. Yes they had like. I said Chris Sale and company but I that's the other thing a lot of them. Just don't know what the hell do Chris Sale. So that's the next red SOx probably between him. There's a ton of money committed Chris Sale. And is he really going to be the Chris? Sale that you think of when you think of Chris sale or is it going to be random wildcard? That can't make it all the way through season. So maybe they turn around and spend more of that money on pitching than somebody like bats right. It's a fair question as man. We really starting to see Chris Sale Labor for the first time in ages. This patsies. I mean you got to only fifty one hundred and forty seven innings and four point four zero. We are a it was not good for sale. I mean some of that seemed like bad luck based on its fan grasp pages field in fielding and pitching was down three point three nine so that significantly better even still just on the circuit. When you're looking at you like shit. What happened Chris? Sale so Maybe arms about the fall off like that deliveryman. I'm surprised that he hasn't had a history of arm issues already. But totaled. Yeah so but then again. Maybe it's an odd thing. Maybe he's report sell two point. Oh so but anyways let's talk. Some of the fallout here. Before we dive in the exact pros and cons thing that you want to do here between the Blue Jays in the now look red sox falling out for the American League in general especially the American League is what does this do to your wild card picture Brennan panicker. Ooh That's a good question because I'm not even sure risky back. I had the red sox in a wildcard spot to be completely honest with you I mean going through it now. I think that completely eliminated from from the conversation unless some people get hot and stay hot throughout the entire season but I think it definitely opens the door Craig for potential bluejays at Red Sox to be battling it out for a third place. Maybe the race of a bit. You never know maybe second place I mean. That's getting optimistic. But in the whole picture I mean this could open up the white socks taking big jump forward And being a wildcard team or it could mean. That wildcards are coming from The American League West and maybe the American league central. Maybe the Indians could get in there. Who knows I mean it will adds up to some more winds for the The case when they play Boston But I I think it just puts the Red Sox I talks not in the playoffs conversation at the right now. I mean it's still a good team. They still got some good players but he disliked U. S. player. We'll have some superstar rate pitch innings regardless of David Price. Lujan definitely needs to be part of this conversation. As far as David price goes regardless of what red sox think fans think of him? This is a guy that still put an almost two hundred innings the last couple of years. So it's the guy is eating up innings no longer taking up those innings that is now going to all of a sudden shift. Wait to Chris. Sale and company for guys are already like we were talking about a minute ago having fatigue problems. So there's going to be a stand up thing for the red sox here for them to be. I still think on paper there at that. Same Level as the Blue Jays and the raise but I think the team that benefits actually the most from this whole situation in a wildcard picture. All son is the frigging Chicago White. Sox Yeah I don't I don't disagree. I don't at all agree. Because the Cleveland Indians were regarded. They still have ridiculous. Pitching even after trading corey. Kluber that that offense just doesn't strike me as anything special in the fact that that lindores allegedly still being shopped. I'll believe that when I see it right now. This whole Buki bats thing is putting a screeching halt to any other offseason moves until it is finally signed off on Apparently the MLB is getting really pissy about that But as far as this goes to the Chicago White Sox all of a sudden the team in my opinion there. That's still all the Blue Jays that just had that next striking spot that they were on the outside looking in maybe unless things went right but they had the right signings the offseason that really filled in their gaps and I can make the argument that they filled in the gaps a little bit better than the Blue Jays in certain things because they had some of their talent level on the young side. Wasn't anything like what the Blue Jays have. And I think that's where we're going to segue into the next part here brandon and seeing you're gonna be kind of the next couple of weeks was your idea. I want you to run with it and you can host this piece nobody. I'll do it. I got to end with a day without art for the next two weeks. It's always good on my idea. Craig where we hopped on way got talking going through the agenda. Rundown was now gone. Why don't we go through onto each depth charge and see on it like well? I obviously be biased to our team or game vice to the Blue Jays. But we'll do. I best take a neutral fence perspective on choosing who has the advantage at each position So with that. Let's start going through. Where do you WanNa Start Craig? I'll let you start. Do you want to start with the bullpen rotation or do you WANNA start position players starting with catcher? I think we start with the pitching first period. Care if you go bullpen or starting pitching but I think we need to literally hit with a bang which is what the Blue Jays fans are here for. That's true and the Big Bang. This off season was on the rotation side of things with Rio. So let's kicked off so craig if you're GonNa go through and had your choice between right now. This is how the Blue Jays Steph. Chart Goes Hundred Review. Tanner Roark Matt. Shoemaker Chase Anderson and Ryan Baraki as the top five versus Chris Sale Water Rodriguez Nation of all the David price before..

"Yeah yeah actually. It's a decent signed right. It's more yeah. We saw him a forty forty one gains the Blue Jays. Craig back in In two thousand eighteen. And you know he was okay. He didn't hurt the blue. Jc actually brought no value is therefore came in at zero point zero so he didn't hurt somebody else didn't help them. And you know what if you get a few solid outings reliever and you can kind of keep that rolling. I mean you've seen some of the stuff that Patricia has even back in twenty four team. When he was with the white sox he was starting to close games for them Getting Fourteen saves in seventy three innings with a to ninety sixty so there is some talent there the actually has quite a good fastball. There so I don't mind it. They're familiar with them and clearly I guess people offered me of whispered something into the ear. Hey if he's out there might as well give them a call and bring him back because he does have a live arm. He didn't see much major league action last year. Though yeah I think. The keys of movement on his pitches when he gets that last little bit movement on his fastball. You literally see a missing bats and then the days were. That doesn't do that. That's home run balls especially in the Rogers Centre. Oh yeah big difference in day to day stuff for Jake for tricky about it is what it is and I think this is right back where we set a bazillion times on this show. There is no such thing as a bad minor league signing were Ski Brennan. He's in Buffalo. And you've got another valuable arm to come up with somebody is either. You know not quite getting it done or gets hurt. This is just exactly the kind of stuff they should be doing to fill in these little holes because there are some good chances that we're going to talk about here in a few minutes of right things happening for the Blue Jays year. Things could happen so anyways. Let's talk about some of our other. Recent past Mr Panicker Kendra Morales apparently officially announces that he retired for Major League Baseball today in an interview with the ESPN. He saw slightly frowny face. I love watching love. The person that Koenders Morales and then he was fun to watch for two years. It just hurt and I know for all blue. Jays fans the fact that most people didn't like Cannabis Morales was the fact that at Koenders Morales is not Edwin encarnacion. The only reason Craig. The only reason why morale is just kind of had a dark cloud always hanging over when he was With the Blue Jays. It's unfortunate. He's a good hitter. He really was More so earlier in his career he kind of tailed off a little bit towards the end there but in two thousand eighteen he had a better season ended in twenty seven team at the blue gave. Twenty seventeen I think you know he came in. He understood that a fan favorite Historic Blue Jay and all time Blue Jay. The on his gone and he had to fill his shoes ultimately. It didn't really work out. I mean morality wasn't like atrocious by any means but he just wasn't Edwin encarnacion and he did bounce back a little bit in two thousand eighteen and with all the positional flexibility. This front office continues to talk about Craig. There just wasn't any room for them to be on the big league roster Come Opening Day two thousand nineteen and the whole job. Jeanie Tracy thing happened. Talk ridiculous amount of years control. No he was not only was. I always loved watching kinder's morale is especially back in the day when he was wearing the Jersey. Because this guy just could rake at the plate and I hate saying this but I can pinpoint where his career started going south and is nearly certain home. Run Ball that. He somehow breaks his leg when he stops on home plate during a home. Walk up celebration. How could you go from the highest of highs to literally the lowest of lows in the matter of a second I he this guy the year before that was just destroying baseball's to the point? Brennan where he was batting three. Oh six had forty. Three doubles and thirty four home runs to barely getting the fifty one games bank to ninety at that time and it breaks his leg the following your house and time literally one of the premier up and coming talent to bats at that time in baseball and just he didn't come back. The same power wasn't is there is it was there was plenty of it still but this is a Guy. I was starting to think and you know late. Two thousand eight watching them in the minors two thousand nine when he came up. I'm like this guy is GonNa hit forty home runs and have one hundred every stickier the. Oh yeah no doubt the most ever hit the season was that thirty four in two thousand nine when he had his career highs in most categories before the injury and the L. Y. Craig he was definitely on track to have a better season in twenty ten then two thousand nine and then he broke his leg. And it's like Oh damn this guy he's GonNa be out and he was out he missed it now. After he broke his leg he was all twenty. Eleven came back for one year. He had a decent year but that was more. The Koenders Morales with the one nineteen to create plots. Like not in Detroit. Good exactly they. At least what we saw so yeah other than that. One year that he had in Kansas City royals on the world series where seemingly everything went right for that team. Countries Morales came close to bouncing back to what he was with the angels and two thousand nine hundred even everything else from two thousand ten onwards. Yeah I agree with you. It just wasn't the same for him. It didn't seem to fame. At least there's just something missing but I I completely agree at one point. I thought he was going to be the next great power hitter. They do it for years and then they could just all caught up with maybe not so much the fact that he broke his leg just age and everything slowing down and he wasn't we feel threat either and it's amazing. What not having a good foundation the plate will do to you but Brennan as far as Kendra Morales legacy at baseball goes. He's known as one of the better. Rbi switch hitters in recent memory. I think not on the level of somebody like Chipper Jones as far as switch hitters. Go Brandon. There's not been a lot of them over the last few years. And this is a guy that was gonna hit you. Twenty bombs and be around eighty. Rbi's every year. That's saying a lot I think. And the fact that he was usually posted above the two. Sixty two seventy at batting average. That's pretty good stuff at a lot of teams are gonNA miss. It is and you know why I think the one thing that we just fans can think tenders morale sore and I guarantee you think Craig because it was kind of whispered about on twitter that the reason why the Blue Jays signed Koenders Morales was because he's representing him and Louis Correal Junior. Have the exact same agent that represents them both and so who or something like that. If I recall I believe so I believe they are close family friends and he'll Kendra was each mentor to both curry. Als But mortis especially they teammates but I'm pretty sure that part of believe getting ludicrious. Junior was conditioner on them. Signing Kenya's Morales which is why did he did it? So early in the off season remember that signing was like a week or two after the world series concluded with branches. Ale started yet right. I was like okay I mean. I don't if like tempers. All actually white him It just seems a little odd that you're acting this quickly when you have Edwin encarnacion on the free agent market so. He had a few good highly team. Craig Walk us a few absolute moon shots but I think we as fans conduct we thank him for getting alertus Korea to the PUFUS. Because I'm pretty sure that was a package deal. Yeah and if it wasn't a package deal one way or the other we head avoid at first base the agent time if filled up something that we needed and he was salvageable for varying playing very good baseball. Offer somebody his age at that point in baseball the fact that he was like I said Brennan isn't eighty. Rbi guys the one year and in all reality. If you got a few more at bats in two thousand eighteen it could have looked very similar. Both years I think. And that is the slouch hat and the fact that we didn't have anybody else to play first base injustice smoke when he was just completely tearing the ball off. You know you're not going to have to really good first baseman. It's usually a lot once and haven't smoked play first base in great defense and hit the ball as hard as he did for two years. And then some make. Kansas Morales behind him also switch. It worked out pretty well. I think the Oh it was so fun. Watching Hendry's Morales actual play from first base for the first time in years because he didn't look much a train wreck as people thought it was gonna be actually held himself together pretty well when he played first base so. I got a good kick out of what he was over there. Don't they on Yankees First Baseman for this year to you got to be they were so depleted pace but like Okay you're the only the only guy here it can be One last I'M GONNA say Canadian Baseball News as far as this one goes as the Canadian. Baseball Hall of fame has announced this year's inductees Brennan. And this is a pretty cool glass. I'm happy with it The Larry Walker. He gets inducted. The Baseball Hall of fame baseball fame turns around and bring someone in the native sons and Justin Monroe are adjusted more. No and then you have John Old Rude and Duane Ward. Who are in. My opinion could essential bluejays when I think of the two of them and I still think a johnny all only wear a blue jay helmet. Nowhere where he is. As far as years with the mets and the mariners as well. It's there's nothing better than John Already. Being part of Wam go and everything to me. It's just one of those things you literally can tune into TV back then and you just see afraid of watching the five of them. Just go at it so insanely talented players coming into the Canadian Baseball Hall of fame. You had have at least watch. Justin Moore L. Play as much as he had been all for watching. I delete I believe is actually at the game where more no sustainable can catch And really derailed his season because I believe the game I was at the Blue Jays were wearing the powder blues and think we remembered him. I believe fighting in John McDonald At shortstop I think it was Johnny Mac and they were in the powder blue. So I'm pretty sure Craig. I was at that game. Which so unfortunate because man is more now did not sustain that concussion which really started to derail him. I mean he's still Hudson. Good seasons out there that with the rockies and the twins but it wouldn't have been such a stretch to say that could have been a hall of Famer If he stayed healthy is entire career because more no is at one point he didn't he won..
