Jays Journal Podcast - August 24. "An Unforgiving Season."
The Blue Jays found themselves pleasantly surprised by the spot start heroics of journeyman Tom Koehler and profoundly disappointed with an anemic offence that failed to generate any run support in a 2-0 loss to the Rays.
And so, yet another winnable series falls by the wayside; notwithstanding the inevitable melancholy that follows, we're pleased to bring you a bona fide diversion of the first order as host Ari Shapiro is joined by a stellar round table consisting of Sportsnet writer and blogger, Tao of Stieb (@TaoofStieb), motivational speaker and mental game coach, Diamyn Hall (@DiamynHall), and podcaster and host of South of the Six, Adam Corsair (@ACorsair21; @SouthOfThe6ix). Together, they set out to tackle a multitude of pressing issues including:
The microcosm of post-season futility that was the Tampa Bay series (3:01), if the front office is taking advantage of fans with their marketing rose-colored glasses (6:20), how fans will likely remember this season once it's over (12:18), equating player regression versus underachievement (15:41), will the Donaldson-Tulowitzki-Martin leadership triumvirate remain in place for 2018 (19:21), the Josh Donaldson conundrum (21:57), if the team should make a free agent splash during the off-season (27:42), and understanding priorities for the future (31:55).
