Craig Goldstein, Editor-in-Chief of Baseball Prospectus, joins Drew as the duo dissect early-season Blue Jays narratives. Craig delineates baselines for performance sustainability. What can analysts and viewers, alike, buy stock in a month into the season? How does one separate a hot start from an intentional high level of play (7:00)? If you're new to the podcast, then welcome to your weekly dose of 'to Biggio or not to Biggio?' Drew and Baseball Prospectus' overlord chat about Biggio's April, what attributes warrant keeping him around, and Craig's projection of Biggio (17:00). You can't sully Vlad Jr.'s 2021 with words, because they would be undeniably false (27:00). What can we expect from Minor League Baseball this year (32:00)? Why was it so disappointing to see many affiliates eliminated? Has MiLB and MLB barred the entryway to baseball fandom?
