At The Letters
Dec. 14: What happens in Vegas...
December 14 2018
April 16: Does the Blue Jays rebuild have to be this sloppy?
April 16 2019

Outfielders are crashing into each other, a second baseman can't throw to first, and players are losing track of balls and strikes. Arden and Ben discuss whether this is acceptable for a rebuilding team like the Blue Jays (it's not). Plus, how much longer must we wait for Vlad Jr. to save the day?

"We know that Lourdes Gurriel Jr. has the capacity to make that throw. We've seen him do it in infield practice. We've seen him do it in games before. And he's not making the throw right now. So there is a really significant mental component to it." - Ben Nicholson-Smith

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

April 11: Slow starts at the plate costing Blue Jays early
April 11 2019

The Blue Jays are pitching, but they sure aren’t hitting. Plus, Arden and Ben look back at Kevin Pillar’s career in Toronto and make sense of the Randal Grichuk deal.

"Shoemaker and Galvis to this point could not have worked out better in the dozen games that we’re here talking about." - Arden Zwelling

"When you look at Blue Jays center fielders in the history of the franchise — Obviously Devon White, Lloyd Moseby, Vernon Wells, probably the top three. Kevin Pillar I think you can make a very strong case that he’s in that group maybe as the number four all-time centre fielder for a team that’s been around for four plus decades." - Ben Nicholson-Smith

April 2: First impressions of Montoyo's Blue Jays
April 02 2019

Sure we're just a few games into the season, but that doesn't stop Arden and Ben from taking stock of the early returns for the Blue Jays and their new manager.

"So here's what we're getting from Charlie Montoyo -- is some pretty full explanations of the moves that he's been making. And I would say that in this first four game series with which he's managed. I don't want to say we've learned a ton about him, but we have seen some interesting things that he's going to do differently than John Gibbons did them." - Arden Zwelling
