Jays' Comeback Bid Falls Short vs. Brewers

Jays' Comeback Bid Falls Short vs. Brewers

Jeff Blair and Kevin Barker break down the Blue Jays' 5-4 loss vs. the Brewers to wrap up a series loss in Milwaukee. They take your calls and texts, and get right to the offence - after sputtering for most of the game, were all the right decisions made when the team made a comeback bid in the ninth inning? What was up with Alejandro Kirk's throw in the sixth inning, or Vladimir Guerrero Jr.'s pinch-hit usage late in Milwaukee? They get into the outing from Chris Bassitt, and also discuss a variety of roster decisions, including Cavan...

Kikuchi, García Blank Brewers to Even Series

Kikuchi, García Blank Brewers to Even Series

Jeff Blair and Kevin Barker break down the Blue Jays' 3-0 win over the Brewers to even the series in Milwaukee! They take your calls and get right to the outing from Yusei Kikuchi - he battled all night, but still allowed no runs over five innings of work. How impressive were those efforts given that he had thrown 50 pitches midway through the second inning? They discuss the bullpen, including Yimi García grabbing the four-out save - any chance he's an All-Star this year? Plus, they get into the offence, as Spencer Horwitz and Danny Jansen both collect s...

Jays Offence Gets Shut Down (Again) in Milwaukee

Jeff Blair and Kevin Barker break down the Blue Jays' 3-1 loss vs. the Brewers to open the three-game series in Milwaukee. They take your calls, and get right to the anemic offence - outside of the Alejandro Kirk home run, how did Colin Rea shut down the offence? Why does it continue to struggle? They get into the 5.2 IP from José Berríos and his pitch mix - was it another case of the pitchers being forced to walk the tightrope? Plus, they discuss the top of the order - does the lineup need another adjustment?

IKF Gets Straight A's, Jays Win Series in Oakland

Sho Alli breaks down the Blue Jays' 6-4 win over the Athletics to grab a series win in their final ever trip to the Coliseum in Oakland! He takes your calls and texts, and gets to the five RBI knocked in from Isiah Kiner-Falefa - should he be moved up in the order, or is he good where he is? After Shohei Ohtani, is it fair to say IKF might be one of the better off-season signings? Plus, Sho discusses outings from Bowden Francis, Zach Pop, and Chad Green, and looks ahead to the probable pitchers in the Brewers...

Kevin Gausman Dominates in Nine-Inning Complete Game Shutout

Sho Alli and Jesse Rubinoff break down the Blue Jays' 7-0 win over the Athletics to even the series at one game apiece! They take your calls and texts, and get right to the dominant performance from Kevin Gausman, who throws his first nine-inning complete game, and his first career shutout as well, all coming in his 273rd career start. They discuss the offence snapping the first-inning scoring drought in a very Blue Jays way, the offence stringing together some hits in the fifth inning, and all the relievers getting some important rest ahead of a bullpen day on...

He takes your calls and texts, and discusses the offence getting shut out - how did they get baffled by Hogan Harris for six innings? He gets into the eight innings of one-run ball from Chris Bassitt - as great as it was, can the team afford to keep wasting these efforts? Plus, Sho discusses the day of breaking news, including Cavan Biggio being designated for assignment, Spencer Horwitz getting the call-up, and Alek Manoah being...
