The Jays Journal Podcast is hosted by our own Ari Shapiro, and can be found on Tune in regularly to hear Ari and a wide range of guests talk about current issues, have roundtable discussions, and regularly take your calls to discuss all things Blue Jays.

Jays Journal Podcast – December 13. “New School & Nostalgia.”

As the seismic aftermath of the Stanton and Ohtani news reverberates gently around scores of Blue Jays fans still wondering what in the name of Abner Doubleday exactly hit them, we’re thrilled to bring you an afternoon delight of baseball distraction complete with new school ideals and old school sensibilities.

Joining host Ari Shapiro on this latest edition of the show are some of the best baseball minds available to help deal with the unpredictable nature of the 2017 winter meetings. First, we bring you an exclusive one-on-one with writer and player evaluator Emily Waldon (@emilywaldon2080) from The Athletic MLB and 2080 Baseball to discuss her thoughts on the Jays minor leaguers, why Anthony Alford is an X-factor, and if the Tigers can compete next year. (3:05-19:58)

Next up is a blistering round table discussion consisting of producer Jon Reid (@JonReid590) from the Fan 590, author and voice of the Lansing Lugnuts, Jesse Goldberg-Strassler (@jgoldstrass), and writer and blogger with Sportsnet, Tao of Stieb (@TaoofStieb). Together, they discuss generational players colliding, how Dee Gordon was a missed opportunity, fan psychological health, if the city could accept two rookie starting outfielders, why Morris and Trammell are over-rated, and the Marvin Miller travesty. (20:01-1:15:30)
