Greg and Josh go over the last two weeks of news in Blue Jays land. They discuss their impressions of the Home Run Derby and Vlad’s performance, Joc Pederson‘s unfortunate fate, a small tweak to the format and Pete Alonso being relegated to footnote status despite his win. They also go over Bo Bichette‘s recent comments and what we should take away from that, take a look at the performance of some of the Blue Jays’ middle of the diamond players, break down the status of the various trade candidates, and discuss new acquisition Wilmer Font and his likely role with the club. Finally, they answer listener questions, talk about Bud Selig‘s silly opinions, and discuss a couple of recent tragic deaths, one of which hit close to home.
