The Toronto Blue Jays took two of three from the Baltimore Orioles, keeping their playoff hopes alive and picking up a game in the AL Wildcard race. Part of the success was due to Vladimir Guerrero Jr., who hit three homers. Is he back to his MVP-type self after a month-long slump? How much does the return of George Springer help him and others in the lineup? How concerned should we be about the health of Springer? Mark, Bryson and Jacob also discuss Hyun Jin Ryu’s five no-hit innings and changes to the bullpen, including Brad Hand being DFA’ed and Nate Pearson being recalled.Subscribe to Section 138 on YouTube for video podcasts and live streams: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTCRKhBRu9kVO2fDuc2q8Aw/featured.

The three start the show with some gripes over what the MLB All-Star Game has become compared to the glory days of the past. We discuss Vladimir Guerrero JR.'s MVP performance in last nights game, as the three agree - The sky is the limit for this young star. Bob and John ask Buck if the July 30th goal to have the team back in Canada is realistic, Whether the Rogers Centre is even ready and what it would take to re-locate a Major League Baseball team for the third time in one season. They talk about just how bright of a future this young Blue Jay's team has but stress that patience is key for long term success before we end the show addressing what the Blue Jays should do as we near the trade deadline.
EP 177 - JON MOROSI on the Toronto Blue Jays, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and their new additions to the roster.
The Bob McCown Podcast
Reacquiring guest and friend of the show, JON MOROSI, joins John and Bob from Buffalo today to talk about the Toronto Blue Jays, their recent trades and their uptick in offensive production. As Jon gets ready for the broadcast tonight, the three talk about the impact playing on natural grass and how the team could be affected once they come back to Canada and the Rogers Centre's artificial turf. We talk about the new additions to the team in Adam Cimber & Corey Dickerson and what exactly fans can expect from these fresh faces and the hot play from the AL Player of the Week, Vladimir Guerrero Jr as he continues his impressive season - which begs the question - Would you trade Vlad for Fernando Tatis Jr. at this point in their career? We also talk about the affects the recent crackdown on banned substances has had on the offensive output in Major League Baseball. To end the show, it wouldn't be fair if we didn't let Mr.Morosi talk hockey - the three discuss Jon's experience covering the Canadiens vs Vegas series and whether or not Montreal can pull off an upset.

The two then talk about some of the better pitchers in the league—Corbin Burnes, Tyler Glasnow, Aroldis Chapman—and various pitch-mix changes they have implemented before taking listener questions.Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/future-projection-a-baseball-america-podcast/donations
