Blake Murphy is joined by Sportsnet's Chris Black and Joe Siddall to weigh in on how the Blue Jays should address their bullpen issues, why it's essential to get pitchers that have swing and miss pitches, and if the team would consider rolling a 6-man starting rotation (01:48). Sportsnet.ca's Shi Davidi gives his thoughts on the Jays acquiring Zach Pop and Anthony Bass from the Marlins, why they're welcoming a return for Bass, and if a starting pitcher would've been involved in the negotiations (21:53). Drew Fairservice of the Spin Rate podcast shares his initial reaction to Jordan Groshans' departure to Miami, and how a potential deal for Ian Happ could affect their current outfielder crop (34:47). MLB.com's Christina De Nicola joins us from Miami to share the reaction in the Marlins' clubhouse on today's trade with Toronto, Zach Pop getting to play for his hometown team, and what kind of pitchers the Jays are receiving in both Pop and Bass (51:54). Blue Jays radio voice Ben Wagner discusses when the team could expect their new relief pitchers to arrive and if the front office is still diving into the trade market late in the day (01:05:11). Finally, Arden Zwelling of At The Letters jumps in to chat about a good opportunity for Jordan Groshans within the Marlins system, and who is left on the board that would be a great addition to Toronto's rotation or bullpen (01:20:32).
