Effectively Wild Episode 191: The Significance of the Blue Jays' Slow Start/Justin Upton and Internet Gloating

by Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller



Ben and Sam discuss how deep a hole the Blue Jays have dug, then talk about whether it's fair for people to gloat about the Diamondbacks' decision to trade Justin Upton based on what's happened so far this season.

for Sam - the problem isn't Lawrie. After coming back from his spring training injury, he was 0 for his first 10, with 6 K's.
Since then, he has hit .270 with a .325 OBP. Not stellar, but more productive than almost every other Jays' regular position player.

Right, sorry, didn't mean to suggest that he *is* the problem, much more interested in whether he will be turned into the problem, narrative wise.

Thanks for clarifying, Sam. If a scapegoat emerges, I would think Jose Bautista would be more likely. Between his frequent beefs with the umps, he is hitting the occasional dinger, and nothing else. His average is .192 and his OBP is .280. All the ISO in the world (he actually currently has all the ISO in the world) simply hasn't helped the Jays.
