Nelson Cruz joins Jays' nemesis; is a 2022 playoff push more realistic & is Vlad destined for Triple Crown w/ Rob Wong
Manage episode 298124086 series 72940
Drew welcomes Rob Wong, host of Blue Jays Baseball and Jays Talk on Sportsnet 590, to Spin Rate! The birds of a feather flock towards a recent development in the AL East, the Rays acquiring slugger, Nelson Cruz. What does this transaction portend for Toronto? Was Nelson a checkbox on the Jays' trade deadline wishlist? On this hypothetical wishlist, Joey Gallo is presumably a name underscored and circled for Ross Atkins and co. Should the Jays move Heaven and Earth for Gallo, or should they continue to wait and fortify their resources for the offseason when a 2022 playoff push might be more realistic? Is Vlad destined for the Triple Crown, and how valuable would Bo Bichette be as a trade piece?
