BFMD Episode 243 – Jays Chop Braves – Bat Flips and Maple Dips – A Toronto Blue Jays Podcast
After a series sweep of the Atlanta Braves the Blue Jays are riding high heading into a tough week against the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles. Chris Bassitt was dominant, throwing a complete game shut out, and the bats were able to do enough damage after Berrios and Kikuchi starts to earn all 3 wins. Justin and Patrick recap the weekend and share their thoughts on the Yankees series.
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.
