We have an unexpected mid-week emergency edition of the podcast. In this case it was Chris flying solo on this one, because when the bat signal went up from our favourite scout Zach Mortimer he was the only one available to respond. Zach had run into some difficulty with some Blue Jays fans on Twitter while discussing former Jays top prospect Noah Syndergaard, and needed a way to get his feelings across in more than 140 characters. Since Zach has been our favourite guest, and is always generous with his time with us, we couldn’t say no.
If you’re looking for sunshine and rainbows from this edition (or the show in general for that matter), I’d move along, cause this isn’t for you. Noah Syndergaard is a hell of a player, and if some fans want to bury their head in the sand and refuse to believe that, then I don’t know what to tell you.
Anyway in this episode, Chris and Zach spend a good 30 minutes extolling the virtues of Mr. Syndergaard, while at the same time belittling some of the Jays fans who don’t have a firm grip on reality.
Music this week coming in is Mr. Mortimer’s theme song of “Big League” by Red Rider, and going out its “Someday” by the great Steve Earle
