Jays Talk Plus: Who Makes A Strong Case To Be The Blue Jays MVP?
September 22 2022
Blue Jays TV play-by-play voice Dan Shulman joins Blake Murphy to discuss Aaron Judge's pursuit of making history, John Schneider's decision to let Adam Cimber pitch over Anthony Bass in the 10th inning during Wednesday's loss to the Phillies, why Matt Gage has not been called up from the Minors, how the Jays' starting rotation in Tampa Bay could dictate their approach to the upcoming Yankees series, and if Mitch White is in consideration for the playoff roster (04:40). The Athletic's Kaitlyn McGrath jumps on to lay her case for the 2022 Blue Jays MVP, who'd she choose between Kevin Gausman or Alek Manoah, if we should contemplate giving the award to a position player, and if there are any concerns with Jordan Romano blowing back-to-back saves (30:18). MLB.com's Mike Petriello weighs in on the Jays decreasing their usage of the shift behind Gausman, if it has a positive effect, and how he would utilize both Alejandro Kirk and Danny Jansen in a post-season lineup (51:03). To wrap up, Robert Orr of Baseball Prospectus stops by to chat about how Bo Bichette brought back the power in his batting approach, how Vlad Jr. can add Bo's improvement into his game, and Judge's historic home run chase this season (01:14:03).
