Aug. 9: A new era of Blue Jays baseball arrives
August 09 2019

Bo Bichette can't be stopped, so Arden and Ben discuss his historic stretch, what the Blue Jays can do to address their pitching, and Mark Shapiro's recent media availability.

"I don't know if the Blue Jays are going to win in two years or three years. None of us know if they are going to go to the postseason or win a championship. But if they do, these are the players that are going to get them there. This is going to be the core of that team. You can say — hey, I remember when Bo Bichette debuted! I remember watching Cavan Biggio hit that screaming home run to right at the Trop. You can get in on the ground floor of this and watch it." -Arden Zwelling

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

Aug. 1: A closer look at the Blue Jays' decision to trade Sanchez
August 01 2019

With Sanchez, Biagini and Hudson all traded, Arden Zwelling and Ben Nicholson-Smith make sense of the Blue Jays' decisions and assess the return coming to Toronto.

"I just don't think you can criticize the front office for, you know, oh -- they don't now what they are doing. No! They're doing what every other team is doing. They're doing what all baseball front offices are doing. It's where its been going for a while now. It's like baseball teams went from mom and pop shops --- they went from Joe's Hardware and Beth's Fine Goods to Google and IBM." - Arden Zwelling

July 30: Did the Blue Jays get fair value in Stroman trade?
July 30 2019

Marcus Stroman and Eric Sogard have been traded. Did the Blue Jays get enough back? Arden Zwelling and Ben Nicholson-Smith make sense of the moves and Jim Callis of MLB Pipeline weighs in on the return.

"This would be a really big story (Bo Bichette called up) if it hadn't happened on the day that Marcus Stroman was traded and blew up in the clubhouse, and Shelley Duncan was removed from the coaching staff, and nobody was allowed in the clubhouse after the game .... and Eric Sogard is in the mixed zone in neutral territory between the two clubhouses." - Arden Zwelling
