Little Trop of Horrors Redux
September 23 2022
Sho Alli breaks down the Blue Jays' 10-6 loss to the Rays in Florida. He takes your calls and texts, and discusses yet another ugly game at the Trop - blown strike three calls, low-percentage home runs, reliable relievers getting into trouble, it all happened vs. the Rays tonight. He chats about the error from Bo Bichette (and whether, despite the offensive prowess, Bo is the shortstop of the future), the golden sombrero for Vladimir Guerrero Jr., and a so-so start from Mitch White. Plus, a chat on how much longer it'll be before we get robo-umps. The views and opinions expressed in this podcast are those of the hosts and guests and do not necessarily reflect the position of Rogers Sports & Media or any affiliates.

Jays Talk Plus: Avoiding The Trop Horrors
September 23 2022
Blue Jays radio voice Ben Wagner joins Blake Murphy to discuss the Toronto club's continuing struggles at Tropicana Field, what role could Whit Merrifield have when the post-season comes around, a downtrend in Jose Berrios' outings, and his impressions on Foster Griffin's debut out of the pen (2:48). FanGraphs' Michael Baumann jumps on to chat about his confidence level in the Jays starting rotation, John Schneider's plan for using Alek Manoah around the playoffs, Jordan Romano's game day routine, and his use of the fastball and slider (24:59). Then, MLB.com's Julia Kreuz shares her thoughts on Berrios' ongoing problems on the road compared to playing at home, how Mitch White can carry over the positive aspects of his last start against the Rays, and the reasons to have Gabriel Moreno stick around on the post-season roster (49:27). The views and opinions expressed in this podcast are those of the hosts and guests and do not necessarily reflect the position of Rogers Sports & Media or any affiliates.

Berríos Gets Hammered at the Trop
September 22 2022
Sho Alli and Julia Kreuz break down the Blue Jays' 10-5 loss to the Rays in the first of four at Tropicana Field. They take your texts, and discuss the José Berríos start that saw him only last two innings. They put to bed the Berríos - Stripling conversation, and how even with a recent uneven start, Stripling should be the guy in a potential playoff game. They chat the two home runs from Whit Merrifield, if he's earned more trust going forward with Santiago Espinal on the IL, and discuss a recent report that Alek Manoah could be used in Game 162 vs. G1 of the playoffs if home-field advantage is at stake. The views and opinions expressed in this podcast are those of the hosts and guests and do not necessarily reflect the position of Rogers Sports & Media or any affiliates.

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). The views and opinions expressed in this podcast are those of the hosts and guests and do not necessarily reflect the position of Rogers Sports & Media or any affiliates.
