In today’s Big Story podcast, they played zero games in Toronto. They spent the first three weeks on the road. They lost their best hitter for half the year. Their ace welcomed a baby during a pandemic. They were written off as young but not ready. They ended up in the playoffs, by clinching a spot that had never existed until this season.
The Blue Jays are a bunch of talented kids of former big leaguers, a South Korean ace and a handful of fireball arms out of the bullpen. They are flawed, but they don’t care. They’re not supposed to be here and they don’t care about that, either. This is an unlikely team in the most unlikely of circumstances. So what do they do with it?
