December 05 2017
The sports director at Q13 Fox Seattle, calls in to talk with Sat Shah and Jawn Jang on The Playbook to unpack the deal to renovate Key Arena.

On the Jays' trade for Aledmys Diaz, he says he's a player with upside who'll make a spectacular play before he nonetheless "boots a routine ball." Josh Donaldson is not guaranteed a return to Toronto.
