At the Letters: Blue Jays closing in on wild card berth

In episode 75 of At the Letters, Ben Nicholson-Smith and Arden Zwelling discuss the state of the Blue Jays’ pitching staff, look ahead at a possible wild card game and examine the fallout from Monday’s bench-clearing incidents.


Here’s how episode 75 unfolds:

  • Arden and Ben attempt to answer a variety of pitching-related questions: Would Aaron Sanchez start the wild card game? Can the Blue Jays replace Joaquin Benoit’s production? How vulnerable is the bullpen now?
  • Two players were injured in Monday’s melee. The second segment of ATL focuses on the origins and consequences of the brawl. Plus: Do the Blue Jays’ opponents dislike them?
  • Arden and Ben reflect on the life and career of Jose Fernandez.

Expect more At the Letters episodes every Wednesday—plus a bonus episode next Monday if the Blue Jays are in the wild card game.
