Boy oh boy, does that feel good!
After a difficult week, which featured back-to-back series losses, an injury-riddled Blue Jays squad hosted the New York Yankees and, yet again, came out with two of three wins.
Gerrit Cole was excellent in the opener, the bats woke up in the second game behind an amazing start from Hyun Jin Ryu, and then Bo Bichette powered the team to a win in the third game on Wednesday afternoon with a walk-off bomb. The Blue Jays are now 6-6 for the season, meanwhile, our pals in New York are in the American League East basement with a 5-7 record.
Time to panic in the Big Apple?!?! We welcomed Neil Keefe, a lifelong, diehard Yankees fan and writer, onto the show to talk about what’s going on with the Bombers right now. He went on a tangent about how frustrating the team has been over the past few years, how they haven’t addressed their pitching issues, and why he’s terrified of the Blue Jays moving forward.
All that plus a preview of this weekend’s series in Kansas City on the post-series episode of Blue Jays Nation Radio!
