Jays Journal Podcast – March 13. “The Sky Falls Only Slightly.”

While it may seem like the Toronto Blue Jays are destined to undergo yet another injury-riddled year of general calamities, it should be noted that there are still some in the business of baseball who believe that the present is worth fighting for and that the future is an undiscovered horn of plenty. Although the prospect of an ailing Stroman, Tulowitzki, Donaldson, and Grichuk seem like legitimate reasons for doom and gloom, it must be remembered that around these parts it’s merely par for the course.

In keeping with an indescribable urge for soothsaying, I’m pleased to offer you three exclusive guest interviews that will take your sense of creeping dread and hopefully replace it with lavishly buoyant and unmitigated hope. First, I’m joined by the always effervescent and newly tanned Tao of Stieb (@TaoofStieb) who brings us his authoritative perspective directly from Dunedin, Florida, in assessing the performances of several key cogs in the Blue Jays wheel. We cover his impressions of Guerrero Jr, Bichette, Alford, Travis, and Sanchez in the grand context of this year and beyond. (3:31)
