Off-season risk vs reward moves & Vlad Jr. and the $300M+ question w/ Jonah Birenbaum Spin Rate: A show about the Toronto Blue Jays

    • Baseball

Drew is joined by Jonah Birenbaum, baseball hurler extraordinaire, to cogitate over the Blue Jays' off-season to-dos. Contractually, we can't publish a podcast without deliberating who should get the bag, Marcus Semien or Robbie Ray...and why is it obviously Marcus Semien? Drew and Jonah pitch some names back and forth for who could step into a starting pitching role for Toronto next season. What should the Jays brain trust do with Nate Pearson, and what will be the bullpen's complexion in '22? The guys engage in a jaunty convo about contract extensions for position players that includes a $300M+ question about retaining Vlad Jr.
