Jays From the Couch brings you Episode 84 of the Jays Nest Podcast. This week, we break down the Toronto Blue Jays trade for Melvin Upton Jr & more!
Episode 84 of the Jays Nest Podcast presents the fallout discussion of the Blue Jays’ landing Melvin Upton Jr.from the San Diego Padres. From the financial ramifications of the trade to roster implications to where the club goes from here, we dig into all of it. We continue the Upton Funk with our Stat of the Week segment. Our Hot Takes are back with some great reader questions, too!
In This Week’s Episode:
- Finally, the Jays Nest Podcast gets to record just after Blue Jays news breaks, rather than the other way around. It’s a nice change. The Melvin Upton Jr.trade is the hot topic de jour, so we roll up our sleeves and dig right into all angles of the deal. Hint: It’s a win for the Blue Jays.
- Our Stat of the Week segment continues the Upton Jr talk as we use some numbers to break down both the good, and the bad, of what he brings to the Blue Jays.
- Our Hot Takes segment is lit this week. We discuss the Blue Jays’ new management and their relationship with the media as well as just who is the GM.
- We had a lot of great reader questions, which don’t all focus on Upton Jr. We talk Darwin Barney, Dalton Pomepy and the future of Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion and others.
