Chapman Gets a Win in Coliseum Return
July 06 2022
Jeff Blair and Kevin Barker break down the Blue Jays' 2-1 win over the Athletics to wrap up the series in Oakland. They take your calls, and they discuss six strong innings from José Berríos to (somewhat) stabilize the starting rotation. They get to the great outings from Adam Cimber and Jordan Romano, and how the Jays' closer had the velocity up in Oakland to wrap things up. Plus, a conversation on trade value for prospects and when you should trade them (or not). 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.

Kikuchi Conundrum Continues to Confound
July 06 2022
Sho Alli breaks down the Blue Jays' 5-3 loss to the Athletics as the losing streak ties a season-high. He takes your texts and gets to the main source of consternation: Yusei Kikuchi going less than three innings, walking five batters and hitting two more. Sho discusses how nothing can be off the table at this point, from having an opener, to benching him, or even releasing him outright. Plus, a discussion on the 'movie' that is the 2022 season, and whether or not there's still time to turn things around for the third act. 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: Midway Check-In + Second Half Wish List
July 05 2022
Blake Murphy is joined by Chris Black and Joe Siddall for another edition of "Explain It Black" as they touch on Alek Manoah's first bad start of the season to begin Toronto's West Coast trip, if a drop in Manoah's velocity is a concern, catchers framing pitches, and if Yusei Kikuchi should continue to throw cutters within his pitching arsenal (01:53). Next, FanGraphs' Dan Szymborski discusses the race in the AL East being dominated by the Yankees, how Hyun-jin Ryu's injury affects the Jays' playoff projections, and how he would handle carrying three catchers at a time (27:52). Then, Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith stops by to give out grades for the team at the halfway point of the season, look back at Alejandro Kirk's emergence, and discuss Jose Berrios inconsistency (50:14). Finally, the guys share their wish lists for the second half, who could be the biggest swing piece for the rest of the season and the top targets the team should eye ahead of the trade deadline (01:13:34). 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.

Irvin Shuts Down Jays Offence in Oakland
July 05 2022
Sho Alli breaks down the Blue Jays' 5-1 loss to the Athletics in Oakland. He takes your texts, and gets to the listless performance from the offence, one that saw only four hits over eight innings off opposing starter Cole Irvin. He discusses the lack of quality at-bats from the Jays offence, and how the velocity on Alek Manoah's fastball just wasn't there to kick off the series in Oakland. Plus, a discussion on if the Jays got 'baseballed', and Sho asks if we can chalk this up to a long stretch of games without time off. 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.
