Jays Journal Podcast - August 27. "The Price of Nostalgia."

On a day where sandlot nicknames and heavy nostalgia permeated the air at the stadium that was once known as the Skydome, the Blue Jays ran headlong into the buzzsaw that was Byron Buxton and suffered an ignominious defeat at the hands of a team they were chasing, losing 7-2 to the Minnesota Twins.  

Although the present may seem bleak and full of terrors, we're thrilled to bring you a savvy round table comprised of tremendous baseball minds; podcaster and blogger Brent Cardy (@BrentCardyShow), Jays Journal site expert and writer, Chris Henderson (@baseball4brains), and sportscaster Colin Teskey (@TeskeyRadio) of the Fan 590. Together, they sit down with host Ari Shapiro to mull over:

Why Sunday is the worst day of the baseball week for Blue Jays fans in 2017 (4:11), if Joe Biagini will remain in the rotation and where his role will be in 2018 (6:12), Marcus Stroman or Justin Smoak for team MVP (10:07), Josh Donaldson's nuclear second half and why the team can't possibly afford to lose him (12:33), why the next year is absolutely crucial in keeping fair-weather fans coming to the ballpark (17:31), if the 40 in 40 greatest Blue Jays is a reflection of a loyal and stunted fanbase (20:08), and the inherent dangers of being owned by a media company (23:29).
