Jays From the Couch presents Ep85 of Jays Nest Podcast, a break down of the Blue Jays deadline moves & an interview from the Pirates’ side.
Episode 85 of the Jays Nest Podcast brings you the reaction to the crazy period that was the Trade Deadline for the Toronto Blue Jays. We break down all of the deals that took place and take a logical approach to whether Canada’s only team came out ahead. From the Francisco Liriano deal to adding something for nothing, we discuss it all. As well, we sit down with Jason Rollison of Pirates Breakdown to get his take on what we can expect from Liriano.
In This Week’s Episode:
- We break down all of the deals the Blue Jays were able to swing as the clock ticked down on the Trade Deadline. We dove into the depth the club added as well as what they gave up. Oddly, it was an interesting period of improvement, which didn’t end up costing a lot.
- We took some reader questions that had to do with the financial side of things. Given that neither of us are deeply familiar with the inner workings of deals like this, we break down the perceived idea of money changing hands in trades.
- We sat down with Jason Rollison, the founder of Pirates Breakdown to get his take on the trade for Liriano. If you think Blue Jays Land gets salty after a deal, you should hear what he has to say about the reaction to this one.
