The Athletic's Kaitlyn McGrath joins Blake Murphy to discuss the Blue Jays' plan to manage George Springer's elbow injury, the amount of solid centerfielders around the league, if Matt Gage has earned a spot in the bullpen after Tim Mayza's injury, and if Vlad Jr. is starting to near his MVP-level of hitting (20:50). FanGraphs' David Laurila weighs in on Whit Merrifield's close play at home plate Sunday, Teoscar Hernandez' underrated season so far and why he thinks Justin Verlander will win the Cy Young Award, before revisiting his pre-season predictions on the Jays winning the World Series and Alek Manoah taking home the Cy Young (51:20). Later on, sideline reporter and play-by-play voice for the Baltimore Orioles Melanie Newman jumps on to chat about Trey Mancini outgrowing his time with the organization, the team's trajectory post-trade deadline, and how Adley Rutschman has performed since his call up this season (01:10:06).
