The last game of the so-called most important series of the season for the Blue Jays went about as well as the first three; another loss to complete the sweep at the hands of the Texas Rangers. Host Blake Murphy goes over the series with the help of Sportsnet’s own Shi Davidi. They discuss the letdown and disappointment of this past week from the team and fans alike, before shifting focus to this weekend's series against the Red Sox and how to get back on track. Speaking of Boston, Gabrielle Starr of the Boston Herald shares some insight on the team and the mood around Fenway after the organization parted ways with Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom (31:17). In the second hour, Blake welcomes on The Athletic's Andy McCullough to take a trip around baseball to discuss the playoff races that are still up in the air, before chatting about his book on Clayton Kershaw titled “The Last Of His Kind” (53:55). To close out today, Blake checks in with Patrick Dubuque of Baseball Prospectus, who explains how Davis Schneider has been defying DRC+, before sharing his thoughts on the A.L. Wild Card race (01:13:46).
