Jays Journal Podcast - October 8. "Standards of Excellence."

Although the post-season may have left the Toronto Blue Jays with nothing but cobwebs and scattered hopes strewn about their field of dreams; all is not lost - and on tonight's show, host Ari Shapiro brings you two of the most celebrated and respected baseball minds in the country.

First, we're joined by blogger, writer, and contributor with the Sporting News MLB, Ian Hunter (@BlueJayHunter), who offers us his feelings on the end of the Bautista era (2:58), how a rough exterior influenced the perception of his legacy (5:15), if he believes the 2018 Blue Jays team will be an AL East contender (7:45), his thoughts on Donaldson and a murky future (10:30), if the team was meant to overspend on free agency (12:48), and if the departure of Jose is the first sign of a culture shift in Toronto baseball (16:15).

Next, we bring you sports broadcaster and host of The Program on Sportsnet 650, Andrew Walker (@AndrewWalker650) who sits down to talk about what the future holds in store for next year (21:30), how Keith Law made his day (25:30), his thoughts on the Stroman-Osuna-Sanchez-Travis core (27:31), how different generations will reconcile the Bautista era (30:08), on Shohei Otani and if the team should make a play (34:22), and what to expect from the front office during the off-season (37:38)
