Jays Journal Podcast - September 25. "All Good Things."

Long after the dust has settled on this largely forgettable baseball campaign, the weekend offered fans one last opportunity to bid a generational player farewell as Jose Bautista finished what is likely to be his final homestand as a Toronto Blue Jays player. In front of over 47,000 adoring fans and behind the best attendance in the American League, the team made quick work of the Bronx Bombers in defeating New York, 9-5, and winning the series with conviction.

Host Ari Shapiro is proud to be joined by three baseball luminaries armed with wit and wisdom fair; writer, anthem singer, and statistician for the Blue Jays, Alexis Brudnicki (@baseballexis), podcaster and blogger, Karim Kanji (@karimkanji), and the Jays Journal minor league specialist, Nick Raponi (@nickraponi). Together, they explore:

What it says that this 2017 team was unable to reach the .500 mark all year (1:48), if the sheer desperation in finding replacements will ever repeat itself (5:40), if the current roster has enough available talent and consistency to be a contender next year (11:40), how a healthy Russell Martin is essentially the key to everything in 2018 (14:33), their off-season expectations (16:20), how Donaldson's second half OPS has forced the team's hand (22:01), and if Jose Bautista is truly done with this franchise (29:15).
