Sportsnet baseball editor and one half of 'At the Letters' podcast Ben Nicholson-Smith joins Drew to gauge if the early-season Jays are good, bad, or just meh (3:00). Drew and Ben look at the parallels and contrasts between the 2015 AL Division-winning Blue Jays and this 2021 club. Where does Ben see Julian Merryweather and Drew Pearson fitting into the rotation if this team reaches the postseason? The duo discusses potential areas of improvement on the roster and toss out some trade suggestions. Before parting ways, Drew and Ben take time to admire Vald Jr.'s work through the team's first 12 games. Which facets of his game could use refining, and are Vlad Jr.'s and Miguel Cabrera's styles of play similar?
