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.
