Blue Jay Hunter Podcast Episode 24: The Trade Deadline Aftermath

This year’s non-waiver trade deadline came and went for the Toronto Blue Jays and at the end of the day, they shipped off one veteran starter and one veteran reliever.

This episode is all about the aftermath from the trade deadline for the Blue Jays – did they get enough for Francisco Liriano and Joe Smith? Plus, talking about a potential contract extension for Marco Estrada and what do the Blue Jays do with Josh Donaldson.

Plus, I’ll tell you the story of how I completely missed the ending of the Blue Jays’ epic 11-10 comeback win over from the weekend, and how for a full 2.5 hours, I was convinced they lost the game.


This episode is 25 minutes and 52 seconds long.
