Jays From the Couch brings you Episode 75 of the Jays Nest Podcast where we debut a new format with segments on Blue Jays news, stats & more
Episode 75 of the Jays Nest Podcast is busting out a more crisp format for our show. We make an attempt to curb our long winded productions. The podcast will fit into a more palatable shorter version. We’re hoping you’ll enjoy the more to the point podcast. This week, we look at Blue Jays news and introduce a new segment where we dig into a statistic from the world of baseball in a Blue Jays context. Our Hot Takes segment continues with some thoughts on MLB umpiring and some advice for Josh Donaldson. We end with some great reader questions, as always.
In This Week’s Episode:
- Our new format features much quicker discussion about each topic. Our first is the rumor that Drew Storen is being shopped and was recently scouted while in Minnesota. We dig into the logic of such an endeavor from other teams.
- We introduced a new segment where we feature a statistic of the week and we explain it, it’s usage and provide context to the Toronto Blue Jays. This week, we discuss ERA as a measurement of the value of a pitcher. It is our suggestion that, perhaps, you don’t.
- From there, we continue our “Hot Takes” segment with Keegan’s opinions on MLB umpiring. As well, I offer some advice to the always amazing Josh Donaldson in the wake of his recent comments about being thrown at.
- We wrap up our show with some great reader questions about the upcoming schedule for the Blue Jays, candidates for release and Jonathan Harris.
