Blue Jays Offseason Google Hangout

Is it really that time already? Join me tonight beginning at 8pm EST for the BJH Blue Jays Offseason Google Hangout.

It’ll run for about 30 minutes during which I’ll take your Blue Jays-related questions and touch on several topics.

With the news on Dan Duquette possibly being traded to the Blue Jays, the latest developments on the Rogers Centre turf, and speculation about a Dioner Navarro trade, there certainly won’t be a shortage of issues to discuss.


Update: Here’s a brief summary with links to all the topics/questions discussed. Thanks everyone for joining in and watching. I’m hoping to do another of these in the future, but perhaps with a guest or two to break things up a bit.

    Ian has been writing about the Toronto Blue Jays since 2007. He enjoyed the tail-end of the Roy Halladay era and vividly remembers the Alex Rodriguez "mine" incident. He'll also retell the story of Game 5 of the 2015 ALDS to his kids for the next 20 years.

      Considering the current bullpen depth, how do you feel about Nolin and graveman being sent to oakland in the donaldson trade? While donaldson brings impact, where do you think toronto's young pitching depth might come from in the future(other than norris and stroman). Have the blue jays given up too much youth in recent years for short/medium term results?
