Jays Journal Podcast - September 1. "Back to the Future."

After finding themselves hot on the heels of a rather humiliating but not entirely surprising sweep at the hands of the Red Sox, the Blue Jays went into Baltimore searching for answers on the road. Kendrys Morales was more than happy to oblige as he slammed a trio of monster home runs against the Orioles in an action-packed antithesis to a pitcher's game, prevailing 11-8. 

Host Ari Shapiro is joined by three magnificent baseball minds who are all experts in their appreciation for the minor league system and have unique perspectives on the full scope of talent on the horizon; Jays Journal minor league guru and writer, Craig Borden (@Craigers1221), sportscaster for the Florida State League and prospects1500.com, Jason Woodell (@JasonAtTheGame), and baseball author, podcaster, and the voice of the Lansing Lugnuts, Jesse Goldberg-Strassler (@jgoldstrass). Together, they discuss:

What to expect from an infusion of youthful talent with the expanded roster (4:30), which specific players the round table is eager to see in September (5:51), the disturbing reality that is a lack of speed (9:32), the Jose Bautista leadoff experiment (15:41), on the black hole at second base (19:51), if there's anyone besides Bichette and Guerrero Jr. who should be considered untouchable (24:51), and which elite prospect will be a starter first (28:11).
