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?

Summary

After a 3-1 start for the Toronto Blue Jays, Justin and Patrick break down the series win against the Yankees and the win in the Rangers home opener. 

Steven Matz was electric. Julian Merryweather is apparently the closer now, Jordan Romano and Ryan Borucki look scary good, and Rafael Dolis needs to get his sinker over for strikes. 

Ryu was great on Opening day, Stripling got away with mistakes, and T.J. Zeuch earned another turn. 

On offense, Vladdy and Grich Daddy are off to hot starts while Bo and Cavan are starting to heat up. Marcus Semien has been excellent with the bat and the glove and George Springer should be ready for the Home Opener! 

The guys also talk All Star Game, Reds vs Cardinals, Yadi a Hall of Famer, and Lindor’s big extension. 

We’ll be back Sunday night to break down the first “home” series against the Angels.
