"An hour what fans back to so we can hear the boos when they introduced trailer montoya and rafael talk entitled. That would not that. I want them to be booed again. We've been over this a million times but it would just be entertaining you'll have to see it Okay other cool news from this week. Four blue jays named all. You mentioned this earlier. Brace vladimir guerrero junior being the youngest player ever to lead olive baseball in votes for the all star game you have mark simeon. Also getting in you have to oscar hernandez getting in with a last minute push on the day of voting closing. And then you have bobishenko making it as a reserve and him being named yesterday to the roster It's really cool to see four guys on the team especially when the team hasn't been there in toronto in two years and you still this kind of support for the team. Still have this kind of mobilization of the troops per se vote for players. It's awesome to see it. And i think it really does go to show that this generation of the blue jays is so much better than anything we've seen in recent years not just going back a few years to the pretty rough years of two thousand seventeen and twenty eighteen like going back. Even i think. Twenty fifteen like. We haven't seen this type of team with this home grown talent for such a long time. You go back to the hopes of two thousand thirteen. That was a lot of trades. You'll get ari dickey you'll get those guys coming in that year. You go back even to the started blue jays history. Not a lot of this talent has been home grown. I think we're seeing a new type of team. A new type of fan support rally around them and it's really exciting. I'm just gonna say the last time. The blue jays had this many all-stars something very good happened that year. Somebody by the name of joe. Carter won the world series for the blue jays and i mean it could happen But yeah what you're saying markets. It's such a. I feel like this is such an entertaining group bluejays. I think this current group is better than the two thousand fifteen sixteen team sort of. I mean the pitching is equal. Ish i would say it depends on how you look at it but i would say that this offense is a little bit better. I think that the the small ball at times is there. You don't necessarily see like the blue jays rely on home runs. Obviously then they can hit home runs but they can win without the home run and i think that's the cool thing but i think also you know we're kind of at that age now where we saw a lot of these guys get drafted and get signing grow. Only signed in two thousand fifteen nate pearson isn't with the team but he was. I think it was two thousand. Seventeen was drafted. Bouchette was drafted twenty. Sixteen you see be. Oh the rail. The three of them win that championship with new hampshire in eighteen nineteen. We've seen a lot of these guys develop and grow into So we've seen we've seen all these guys become almost two..

"And if if they can't come back july thirtieth like i don't know what what's going to bring them back and they've been in discussions with the federal government for. I mean pretty much all year. So that's why. I don't know if this is entirely rushed and pretty much. What we've been hearing is rob longley has pretty much been releasing a bunch of threads about this saying that. This was kind of flown under the in terms of a few weeks ago. This proposal wasn't just submitted like this was submitted over a week ago and at least a couple of weeks ago and tfc toronto fc. There are also in a similar situation. There are actually aiming to play games on july seventeenth. so you have to imagine. The federal government's kind of is going to i guess either accept or reject this like together i. It seems like we're going to get an answer probably the soon if as jacob. You're mentioning said that they're gonna they're gonna need at least a couple of weeks in order to i. Guess get every move all the equipment rodr center because rogers center in terms of the field and everything. The field is ready and everything is ready at the rogers centre. All they're missing is yes. The field is ready. I can confirm that per sources so the fields ready. They need the equipment. That's what's obviously gonna hold them back and yes there's going to be a lot of agreements that they're like the this major. I'm oh bpa because You guys were talking about this. What's gonna be. They're going to be a quarantine. Are the players going to be allowed to live out of you. Know not the renaissance hotel or the hotel connected. roger senators. Are the players going to be able to to live. You know the visiting players going to be able to leave their hotel. There's a lot of things. I gotta get sorted out and i'm sure this is all part of the proposal so we're gonna find out sooner rather than later what the details are but the fact is and going back to an episode two was mark. You mark idea. I don't think you were there They you know i was saying. I don't think there's any risk in terms of holding at least ten thousand people at rogers centre so from what we know too because bluejays hot stove on twitter was actually the first one to report this before shot. Eighty released his article on it. Apparently they are aiming for at least twenty five percent capacity to start. It's twenty five fifty but you have to imagine if they were to allow any fans you'd figure it'd be twenty-five percent so that's fine it just feels like there's a lot of details that have to be. I guess sorted out but the amount of development. This is kind of taken over the next couple of days because apparently to august twentieth was the original date in terms of them coming back and it didn't look like at the time they were even going to be getting approval from the federal government but based on i guess how quickly things have progressed in canada and especially in ontario coming back to seem like a realistic plan and going back to to the nhl topic when we were talking about How they were being allowed.

"July thirtieth. Because i mean here's the thing it it's gonna be tough. No dough and mark. Shapiro came out and said i think it was either us either yesterday or within the last couple of days that the team is going to need at least three weeks to a fee to work through everything to return to toronto so it currently it's july the fifth i would say if they get news within the next couple days maybe week than that's reasonable now Shapiro did also say that. If need be they could kind of rush that that processing time don. Maybe weeks or week or something like that. So we'll see it could happen I'm still predicting that. It is july thirtieth in. It'll be definitely entertaining thing. But i think like the biggest thing here is a based off of what i've been reading. The is that the vaccinated versus unvaccinated fans are not fans are players is what's kind of causing the the hurdle here because you look at it. It seems as if i believe it was twenty two of the thirty. Mlb teams have now reached that eighty five percent vaccination threshold threshold which is still good which is good but still eighty five percent is not one hundred percents have people are vaccinated or that are fully vaccinated may be one with only one dose or with no doses and that's gonna be the biggest hurdle is trying to figure out how you can work around that the interesting thing still montreal canadian's currently playing as we record this. They had their series with vegas where they went to and from the two cities they had their series with the tampa bay lightning which could be ending the episode up but they've had two different teams. Come in and so far. The the i i is what what i've got is. It's kind of more of a not necessarily a bubble but there are still restrictions in place. So i'm predicting that would still be part of the agreement to come into toronto. They do have the..

"Who opened up a home standing downtown Buffalo tonight against the Orioles with Ben wagon. Like it. How? How likely do you know to know how likely might you think it is that the season will end here, Ben? I mean, Mike already mentioned the border and forgive me. I've been sort of traveling a bit and I may have missed if there was anything formal about this Um, like what? What do you have a feeling for for like, how likely it is that the Jays will be playing here in August in September. I think it's a very big probability that the Blue Jays continue their play through August in September. There are a number of different layers that you have to go through. On the border, even relaxing enough restrictions, let alone just getting to a point where it's wide open. Um, I know that they extended it. I know that they relaxed the Canadian travel with vaccination proof and negative covid test. But Major League Baseball is operating to a point where 85% Of your travel party that includes front office people support staff medical staff, plus the players 85% that allowed them to relax the protocols within Major League Baseball's confines. That doesn't and there are teams out there that still are fighting to get to that 85% personal belief or not. I think that will be the biggest hurdle that the Blue Jays have to get over. Moving across the border and the teams that are coming across the border at the same time, because the federal government is looking at not only the team that is coming specifically, the Blue Jays But they're also looking at What the situation like in Kansas City. If the Royals are coming to town, you know, like those kind of ancestors are going to play into it. It's really complex. It's really deep dive in looking at the schedule, evaluating when the right time to move the team would be And that's why it's it's going to take some time to get it done and We're all looking at the same calendar right? And it takes a massive mobilization again for a team that's already moved twice because they had to get everything down in Dunedin, Dunedin into Buffalo, and essentially for not only the team as travel party but also the family and support network. Good around these guys, I think it's a major major obstacle. Yeah, very well laid out. Could also could these also be factors. Is there a a point at which from a competitive standpoint? That it just doesn't behoove the Blue Jays to move or as they is that maybe just not. Consideration because you're talking about, you know, 345 times as many people if that were the outcome, maybe that isn't even realistic. Anyway. I wonder if it's there's a point at which you go. It's not worth it for what's left. And then also, perhaps this is I think I mean it to be different. Like what? The ballpark. What the whole thing is how it all sort of computes to determine whether the Jays might think they have some other level of advantage playing here. I don't even know what that would be. Um, I mean, I The playability how the ballpark plays in some way, meaning something to how they decide this, But that's I'm guessing that that won't be a thing. That's you know, that's thick in the weeds, I think I think a couple of things will factor in more before you even get down, too. If it's a competitive advantage to move to Rogers Center. There are a million different advantages that this organization has by being. At its hub at its nerve center, and that's Rogers Centre, right and in a ball part that is ready for major league Competition and to hold major league baseball. Um there are a number of those advantages but with the current state of of where Ontario is where the federal government Views this that those are automatically start to detract from those advantages. Um, and even if There is light. It's into the tunnel to have fans back at Rogers Center. I don't know that it's going to be a difference maker with this team, you know, ultimately deciding. I think I think it's going to decide where do they have enough time to make the move? Is it going to be beneficial to make a move for the players and The Blue Jays at that point, um You know, Buffalo is much different than Dunedin in the way that this ball park place And that's why again. The guys were so ready to stop pitching their Hmm. The hitters would love to stay. But again, you know, it's it's If these slugfests all of a sudden, it's just not fun, Uh, ballpark. Ballpark versus ballpark, You know, sailing fields holding its own in the way that they in statcast. Look at how the ball travels and Who has the advantage. It's a pretty fair ball park to this point, and in my opinion to seeing a lot of games there This is this is the prime time. I think the ballpark plays more fair late June, July and August than at any point in the year has something to with the climate. Right. Like I read Derek Cardi, who studies this for fantasy. His research was Sailing field, Relatively speaking, because of the climate will be more of a pitcher's park than you think. And I might be underselling it by saying that Is that my clothes? No, I I agree with you wholeheartedly. I looked at some data in spring training when they were comparing different ballparks to and You know, I think the perception was..

"Turner gear richards hand. Gto yudo they've all been connected to the blue jays names on this list Maybe not the most surprising but the biggest names. And i guess in the case of jt real museo. The most surprising name is jt. Romeo i i don't think anyone expected the blue jays to be pursuing a catcher this offseason. Of course we've seen them pursue infielders. We've seen them pursue outfielders. We've seen them pursue pitchers relievers and starters but we hadn't heard anything about their interest in catchers until this report and it kind of came out of the blue Saw let's start there. Jt romeo Obviously an all star Obviously I'd say the best catcher on the market The phillies are not expected to resign him. Because they have. I think it was a two billion dollar loss this year or something. Absurd like that So what do you think of this. Do you think the blue jays needed catcher. If they signed g to immuno what did they do with. Reese mcguire what do they do with danny johnson. What do they do with al hundred kirk. There's been some speculation that they would flip one of them for pitching or an outfielder. Maybe even francisco door if they got. Jt realmuto So yeah what are your thoughts about this because it caught me off guard. Yeah this one. This one's weird because the amount of depth that the jas having the jason one of the best depth in the league in terms of catching. It's been well recognized around the game. Like you said. There is recent wireless. Danny janssen is alejandro kirk. You know even in the binder exists in riley adams. Like there's just there's a lot of names here and you know you wonder if you bring in. Jt room utah. Like i don't see the obviously he would slide in right away. But where does that leave. Danny janssen where does that leave. Someone like alejandro kirk. Who impressed in a lot in that final month of the season. I'm not too worried about the reese. Mcguire part he'd just because he was already kind of removed from the roster of one at some point during the season. But you know those players in particular. Danny janssen an ala ala kirk. Just you wonder what like you wonder. Just what the future is in like. you said. Mark the only way this truly possible if this does happen is there must be some sort of plan in.

"I think snow went through the roof and they had to play a doubleheader against kansas city in april which was was falling from the rogers centre or from the tower tower hole in the rogers centre that that was very weird to see a doubleheader of roger center but it just it the problem with it. It's very costly to keep going. You know the one thing that people will probably have hard time letting go up again. Is the memories by. It is what it is. And we'll see how true this becomes. We'll see how significant or it progresses like because like we said things could have been changed because of the pandemic by the other thing too is i think one of the reasons why for me and mark. You probably could agree to you. Know the fact that you get to see other mlb stadiums and then when you want to compare it to the the rogers centre just a place that you see mostly are at least for me now as well But you know. I've already been to a few other stadiums. I'm sure you have as well and it just. Sometimes it kind of makes you look at rogers centre a little bit differently. Maybe maybe that's one of the reasons why is while i'm kind of very supportive of this new idea but i'm just again shocked with all the support rogers centre ad but we'll see what happens and You know. I think a new stadium it. It's been long overdue for quite a long time. So we'll see what happens but Very exciting news though. I'm not gonna lie and again very shocked that morning when the article came out and another thing about this plan that i think is important to talk about is the fact that from what we've heard from the global mail is that rogers wants to privately fund this with i think it's brooks is the real estate Company that they're trying to partner with yet brookfield asset management inc So i think that's another important consideration. Because if we were talking about rogers trying to pawn off all this money for demolishing the rogers centre building a new stadium onto the city. I think that would be different consideration entirely. Because if you're putting that money off onto the tax payers then it becomes a question. Well is this really necessary. Do we really have to invest this money now. can't we get a few more years of the rogers centre..

"Saint louis did it back in the early two thousands or mid thousands where they wanted to build a new busch stadium on the same grounds. That they the the old stadium on so they built like half like a crescent around the old stadium of the new stadium foundation. Leaving just kinda. The outfield unfinished was intersecting with the old stadium. And then in one offseason. They tore down. The old stadium built out the outfield and they are ready for opening day. So i think that's a possibility for the blue jays. Although like you said rogers center is a behemoth of concrete. It's not gonna fall easily. It's it's. I don't know why i don't wanna know how expensive it's going to be to demolish that because you can't just wait blow it up. I feel like 'cause it's just a concrete So i i. I think that makes the process more difficult. Maybe they have to miss one season. Well they demolished the roger center. But i think there is if a if planning goes if they get approval from the government because right now There there on approval from the government. They they haven't made a formal Submission to form occasions far as we know but the land rogers owns the rogers centre but they don't own the land that it's on. Its least from the canadian government. Until i think it's twenty eight thousand eight and it's only least for stadium use and that's the main problem because rogers wanted to tear down the rogers centre and build a new stadium plus condos retail space office buildings etc. So that's the problem with building a new stadium. It's at rogers. Want so they also do more with that land so they have to get approval from the government to use that land so if that approval comes through And they do end up demolishing the rogers centre building a new one in its place. i think they can do it because there's enough space on the land To kind of build them simultaneously right next to each other. Because if you look at the map The the land that they have There's i think it's bremner boulevard And there's some land on the other side of bremner that there's really nothing on it. It's just kind of a parking lot so if you kind of build just over bremner And you know like the blue jays sign is That you can have enough room to build like half the stadium demolished. Rogers turned building another stadium. So maybe they miss out on one season in. The rogers centre new knows whether they play in buffalo. Some people suggesting montreal. Although i don't think that's very likely although they do have the facilities for it but i think they would rather play in buffalo just because of travel considerations and everything. Like that but yeah. I think it's possible that they could stay in the same place in only missed one year. Not even any years at all if they work out the process correctly. But i think that's the main question that we have about this process Because i think all of the other questions are kind of just like.

"The fact is roger center. It did kind of run into it was it was it was bad luck because like you said once it came out it was this whole generational thing that had the roof at the hotel. It had many things it was. You know a significant upgrade from exhibition stadium. And then right after. Of course like you said. They ran in camden yards and many other parks and that quickly took roger center out of date. And that's the fact of the matter is You know for the longest time there was no you know only a couple of years ago. The rogers centre installed infield. It's been it's been only about four or five seasons and before that it's been nothing other than pure turf and Mark like you said it is bottom of the league and even if it not be thirtieth but it's closer to thirty than it would be somewhat to a pnc parker san francisco so that that is the thing and the other thing too is. Roger center was built as a multi purpose stadium. Like you said it. This potential new stadium could be strictly based on all like how much more of this benefit the team It outweighs keep playing a place like the roger center. I'm seeing a lot of people trying to connect the dots here to a potential nfl. I don't see it at all. I see i see jays. Are i see rogers installing this only for baseball purpose. Because of that's the case then. I would be interested in a new stadium. I think the only way this could work out at is if it's strictly baseball because the jays have been playing in a multi purpose stadium for quite some time now and That is one of the other things. And like i wanted to bring up to mark. I don't know what you think of. This is if this five eight year project term or like the length of it is accurate and they want to rebuild rogers center. Are the new park over where rogers center was like. What do you think options are for where this is going to be playing for that long. Because pretty much from what i've seen as well the interviews from the old mls. He had heard the chairman. He's pretty much been saying that. Roger centers so strong that even if you do like a a standard demolition like you see with other stadiums. It won't collapse like it would take years of going away at concrete and taking a down so i just. I don't know what the solution is if they're going to be playing at the current location but like i said if you want to build something around the lake front and then play a roger center until it's ready that's a whole different story but you know. This team was already away from toronto in twenty twenty. What's going to happen for the next five years of this actually goes through and the stadiums built over will rogers center currently is the way i interpreted because like we got five to eight year number in the global mail story the way i interpreted that was like two years for planning three years for actually building stadium and then like three years depending when all this entire process starts because we don't totally know the time line because of course there's messed up by the pandemic but i i think like if it does take three years to build which is again my interpretation by. I don't know if it's correct. I think that it won't mean three years at the blue jays aren't playing rogers center. We've seen other stadiums around baseball. Do it where. They're building stadium on the same location and they don't even miss a single season..

We've had a couple years. If not longer i for me. I just wanna talk about first impressions of this news. Because for me. I woke up. I think it was friday morning. And i saw your text in our group chat saying we gotta talk about this on the podcast and i was like what i have not heard about this at all so then i got the notification from the globe in mail as well of course they reported i. I read that article. I posted about it on instagram and For me. I was elated about this news when i saw like was christmas morning. We've been waiting for this news for a while. we know. The rogers centre is very problematic. And i was over the moon. When i first saw the news because of course this was something we've been waiting for for years. We know the rogers centre needs to be fixed. This was a solution Those remind first impressions. I was surprised that some other people had different first impressions when i posted an instagram. But what did you think pricing. When i saw the news to be honest with you it kind of came out of nowhere again and a lot of these news. This offseasons come like. I've been surprised by a lot of this and this is his massive news. And you know it wasn't something where i was. My phone went off. I was just checking twitter fry. It was the morning. And i see roger center training second in the country. So i'm like okay here. We go again another debate about the ballparks. And then the first thing i see as a new a global headline news saying that rogers centre or rogers. Communications is like planning tear down the rogers centre and i my is completely like open up in. I was completely shocked by this news. By you know there is a base probably from your post as well mark. There's probably a lot of mixed emotions from what you saw people that support this and people that are against this end. I'm actually kinda surprised. The amount of people that were wanting to keep the rogers centre the people that were defending the rogers centre as much as a was but there was a lot of support and there was a lot of excitement of the potential of the possibility of a new stadium. Coming and the one thing we know about the rogers centre. You know from the outside. It probably doesn't have the best appearance it essentially. it's a really. It's a lot of concrete. That's that's one way to put it but to look at it from the inside perspective obviously with the roof open. It's a much better atmosphere. And you can see the cnn tower..

This week, we have a lot of talk about it's it's going to be crazy coming up. It's been. Pretty crazy in the past week, but we got the season coming up. We're GONNA. Talk about that and do our weekly k. b o update, and then I'm GonNa. Give you three things that I'm looking forward to this. Season so here we go. I said season, starting fantastic I could not be more excited. We've been waiting for this forever. I mean see spring training stopped in March. It was about a week or two after we were down here. Visiting on vacation Wilson I went to a few games awesome. We got down here just in time because. As my dad says the fecal matter hit the whirling device and everything shut down. There was no more baseball, no more sports period and there hasn't really been since. So. The regular season starting this week. Fantastic. Two Games on Thursday, we got the Yankees at the nationals got the giants of the dodgers, and then everybody else opens up on Friday the very next day. It's going to be awesome. Major League Baseball decided to go with home stadiums. for the season there are a few things going on there. We'll talk about that in just a minute but so your your hometown team is in town. There they've been training. They've been training at their home stadiums for a little while now. So. I don't know you might see him around town. WHO's to say, but anyways no fans? No fans as of right now I i. do think they're probably going to see what they can do with getting fans into the stadium on a limited basis later in the season like maybe into September. I don't know if it's GonNa Work even talking about it and career for a while the K B O, and it has not happened yet. So. They haven't. They haven't been able to get fans the stadiums your. But I've from things that I've been reading. It looks like when they do try to. It's GonNa be maybe about twenty percent I believe was the number I saw twenty percent capacity with you know loads of social distancing so. I don't know it'll be interesting to see if they if they do. Give it a world. I don't think it's going to happen this year to be honest I. don't see happening just because of logistics. The only thing they would the only way they would be able to regulate that is if the teams themselves are the only ones selling the tickets. The can't regulate social distancing. With with like. Step up and stuff like that. The way I see it. If you know, they say. There's a party of four can buy tickets or maybe a party twelve. You know if all coming together, you can sit in the same sections. Aim row whatever. but if you were to sell that on stub hub. That's that could be four different families coming in three to four different families coming in, and they're all sitting together. There's no distancing and you know they could have. You could get security to split up, but I just I. Don't see that working. That's why I don't see fans the stating this year unfortunately Wilson and we're looking into lot looking forward to go in a lot of baseball games this year, but Not Going to happen this year. I don't think hopefully things settled down, and we can get back a little bit closer to normal next year, and we can hit US spring training games go to some some d-backs games, things like that, but in the meantime we're. GonNa have baseball. We're going to have live. Major League Baseball. At irregular hour of the day we don't have to wake up early in the morning or watch basically tape delayed or replayed games from Korea, which is much I love watching. K B O replays. Not Live Major. League Baseball, so we've got that to look forward tune. It's GonNa. Be a ton of fun. Now I mentioned Toronto. Soccer, but the Blue Jays for a minute so. They've been training at Rogers Centre. that. That's what's been going on there. They everybody's like the training. Their home stadiums for a while now the Blue Jays were allowed to train her Rogers Center, but part of the stipulation was that they had to quarantine. They've had to stay Roger. Center which is. We mentioned this last week. It's a little bit easier for them. There's a hotel in Roger. Center which by the way? At least night in that hotel bucket list put her on there That just seems like an awesome experience, but anyways so they've been able to see that hotel. And Quarantine having left anywhere done anything but then. The Canadian government came down, said will. We've got a fourteen day quarantine order for anybody coming in from outside the country you going to do. And so it was It was a little murky there for a little bit, and they got. They got a I. Guess a waiver or or something that said don't need to worry about it. Everybody's pretty much plan by the same rules here it's fine and that was from Toronto. That was from the municipal government. Let me read you exactly. I'm taking this from the score. This is something that I read on the score about the situation, so said. The bluejays received the green light to host games from the municipal and provincial governments, but needed the federal government to approve an exemption for Canada's Quarantine Act which requires any person entering the country for non essential reasons to self isolate for fourteen days, so got the exemption. However well, they got the exemption and it looked like the Blue Jays. We're going to be able to play Roger Center. That's the news came down this week Ray, and then just within a day or two. It's Saturday July eighteenth than a day or two. The Canadian government come down. COMES DOWN says. We're not going to give an exemption. We're not gonNA. Let you play Games. At Rogers Centre, because of the logistics, bringing in teams from the US. So. They're out again well. When the first order was given that they weren't able to. Play! Their Games in Toronto the Blue Jays were looking at plan in Buffalo which is pretty close I'm not sure I, don't know I'm not real familiar with my geography in that part of the country. I'll be honest with you but I do believe they're relatively close to one another If. That's GonNa Happen. I haven't seen anything since they were exploring quote, unquote but That's something to keep your eye on even this week this week with the season's starting..
