BFMD Episode 153 – Grichuk vs Gurriel

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?

There are 30 games left in the season. The Toronto Blue Jays need at least 22 wins. That’s going to be tough. 

Justin and Patrick talk about that, Robbie Ray being AL Pitcher of the Month, and provide roster and injury updates. 

The big topic on the day is Randal Grichuk vs Lourdes Gurriel Jr. They’ve both had consistent playing time over the past 75 games and their numbers are very different. 

Next up: 3 games vs the Oakland Athletics before a trip to the Bronx for 4. 

Make or break time.
