Would acquiring Nelson Cruz make sense for the Blue Jays? (Ep. 135)

Section 138: A Toronto Blue Jays podcast

It’s Trade Deadline Central for the Toronto Blue Jays right now. Coming off a two-game split against the Baltimore Orioles, the Blue Jays have acquired Trevor Richards and Bowden Francis from the Milwaukee Brewers for Rowdy Tellez. They’re also rumoured to be interested in Nelson Cruz and Craig Kimbrel. Does it make any sense for Toronto to try to improve the offense when the bullpen is still a weakness? How much would the Blue Jays have to give up for Kimbrel? Mark, Bryson and Jacob also discuss Toronto’s series in Baltimore. Is Hyun Jin Ryu back to his normal self? What was behind his struggles in the first place? Subscribe to Section 138 on YouTube for video podcasts and live streams: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTCRKhBRu9kVO2fDuc2q8Aw/featured.

Mollywhop Tuesday: They're Winning! Edition - Is this sustainable? / Should they bring back Nelson Cruz? + other potential acquisitions

The Ian Furness Show

It's a Mollywhop Monday, only this time, on a Tuesday. A few weeks ago we had an emergency session amidst the team's collapse. Now they seem to be dominating; five games above .500 and just 3.5 games out of a wild card spot. Is this sustainable? The trade deadline is fast approaching and the M's may be in the running to bring Nelson Cruz back to town. Should they make the deal, adn what other acquisitions could they feasibly make before the deadline? We discuss all of that and more with Chris Crawford and Nathan Bishop.
