Another week of Blue Jays baseball, another bullpen arm inevitably injured. Drew and Kaitlyn ponders when (or if) the injury-prone bullpen heals up and reunites if they'll return to their early-season splendor. How detrimental is losing David Phelps to a lat injury? How will it shape the bullpens for weeks to come? Among the many bright spots on this Toronto team, the bats certainly merit mentioning. Vlad produced homers in three straight games for the first time in his career. Is he nearing Mike-Trout levels of excellence? Marcus Semien has quietly manufactured a strong '21 campaign. How much more can he contribute to this club? Speaking of this club, is playing in Dunedin a reprieve for the Jays, or is it similar to playing in an opponent's ballpark? Semien shares his thoughts on TD Ballpark's advantage/disadvantage. With Boston on the horizon, could Toronto overtake the AL East's top position? Lastly, Drew and Kaitlyn recount their Covid-19 vaccine experience.
