At The Letters
April 16: Does the Blue Jays rebuild have to be this sloppy?
April 16 2019
June 13: Surely the Blue Jays can hit better than this
June 13 2019

Why aren't the Blue Jays hitting? And what to make of their new defensive alignments? Scott MacArthur, host of Blue Jays Talk, joins Ben this week on ATL to discuss all this and more.

"This is like blunt force trauma to the temple. Because the Jays were really really good three or four years ago. Now they're really really bad. Like they are expansion era bad by record. You and I have not lived this." - Scott MacArthur

This episode is produced and sound engineered by Amil Delic, and hosted by Ben Nicholson-Smith and Scott MacArthur.

June 5: Are the Blue Jays going to lose 100 games?
June 05 2019

Will the Blue Jays lose 100 games? Does it matter? And how do Keuchel and Kimbrel impact the Jays? Ben and Shi discuss it all on this week’s ATL.

“The Blue Jays still have 53 games remaining with the Yankees, the Red Sox, the Tampa Bay Rays, the Houston Astros, the Los Angeles Dodgers. That’s a meat grinder of a schedule and if they don’t play well in those games, it’s going to be very difficult for them to avoid 100 losses. We knew a rebuild was going to be tough. We knew a rebuild was going to be hard to live through. But I’m not sure any of us expected it to be quite like this.” - Shi Davidi

This episode is produced and sound engineered by Amil Delic, and hosted by Ben Nicholson-Smith and Shi Davidi.
