Craig Borden hosts Adam Corsair and Brendan Panikkar in their debut episode as the official podcast of Jays Journal.

The Blue Jays are on absolute fire and the team freestyles an agenda that leads to some spirited debates and good conversation about the rest of the road to the post-season, the potential post-season rotation, and the 3rd base debate.

Craig, Adam, and Brendan also reminisce on how this Jays Journal reunion comes full circle for them.

The Toronto Blue Jays improbable run to the post-season continues and the team at Jay Bird Watching breaks it all down. Over the last week since the last show, the Blue Jays took 3 of 4 at the Baltimore Orioles in incredible fashion. They followed that up with a return to the Rogers Centre for a 6-game homestand and promptly beat their arch nemesis the Tampa Bay Rays 2 games to 1.

The Blue Jays proceed to play the Minnesota Twins for 3 games in Toronto before heading to the house of horrors at Tropicana Field to play the Rays for what might not be the final time in 2021 depending on how the playoff race shapes up.

In this week’s episode, Craig, Adam, and Brendan discuss the offence and who outside of Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has ignited this team. They go in-depth on the schedule ahead and what the Blue Jays need to do to qualify for the post-season given the relative ease of the Boston Red Sox schedule and the New York Yankees easy next 6 games before they finish with Boston, Toronto, and Tampa Bay.

Craig, Adam, and Brendan also lay out how you align the rotation to set yourself up not just for a wildcard game but a meaningful game 162, a potential game 163, and then if they advance, a 5 game ALDS likely against Tampa Bay.

The episode wraps up with a minor debate on who should be the primary third basemen moving forward before getting into the picks to click and record predictions for the next 6 games before the next episode on Wednesday, September 22nd.
