BFMD Episode 144 – The Birds are Flying North

Summary

The Toronto Blue Jays are heading home on July 30th! After 670 days the team will finally play a game on Canadian soil. 

Justin and Patrick are back after a much deserved All-Star break to talk about this news, the MLB Draft, All-Star MVP performances, bounce back starts and offensive beat downs. 

Vladdy mashed a 468 foot bomb on route to winning the All-Star MVP. He continued his breakout year by also hitting 3 home runs against the Texas Rangers during a 3-game sweep. 

Robbie Ray, Hyun-jin Ryu and Steven Matz all delivered strong starts while the bullpen performed well too. 

Gunnar Hogland out of the University of Mississippi was selected 19th in the MLB Draft by the Jays. He will miss this season and most of next season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. 

The Jays play 3 more games in Buffalo before a 7 game road trip through Queens and Boston. After that it’s back to Toronto!
