Bat Flips and Maple Dips

Bat Flips and Maple Dips started in 2018 after Justin and Patrick met online and began a passionate discussion about Canadian baseball and the Toronto Blue Jays. After well over 100 episodes the guys are still going strong and have interviewed Sportsnet’s Dan Shulman, MLB.com’s Keegan Matheson, Jays Journal’s Chris Henderson, CBC’s Devin Heroux, Saskatchewan baseball alum and Pirates draft pick Logan Hofmann & other great guests.

BFMD Episode 160 – The Offseason Begins Bat Flips and Maple Dips – A Blue Jays Podcast

Justin and Patrick return after a few weeks off to begin the Blue Jays offseason.  After a (very) brief postseason recap and World Series prediction the guys jump right into it.  Mark Shapiro's end of season press conference revealed plans to increase payroll, openness to trade prospects, and the desire to make improvements to the Rogers Centre. His pup, Cleoh, was the real star as she appeared briefly on camera during the call. Good girl.  The guys talk free agent pitching. Justin wants to give Max Scherzer whatever he wants for two years, while Patrick is looking at bringing back Robbie Ray on a big payday.  The CBA negotiations will ramp up after the World Series and could delay the offseason as it is set to expire on December 1st. Could there be a lockout?

Justin Anderson

Justin fell in love with baseball watching Roy Halladay and Carlos Delgado as a young kid in Saskatchewan. Justin figured it out at age 12 that he wasn’t a very good ballplayer but loved the game so much that he became an umpire. Justin continues to umpire men’s baseball in Saskatoon and provincial championships. His goal is to work a Canada Cup and an international event as an umpire.

Patrick Marsh

Patrick has always been a sports fanatic but baseball holds a special place in his heart. After playing baseball as a child he continued his passion as a lifelong Blue Jays fan from the championships in 1992 & 1993 to the fabled bat flip of 2015 and on to the present day. His passion led to a short stint blogging before the creation of Bat Flips and Maple Dips in 2018.
