Artificial Turf Wars Ep. 88: The Start(ers) of Spring


Episode 88

Greg and Josh break down the news of the last week in Blue Jays land with a look at the signing of Jaime Garcia, what that and potential future moves mean for Joe Biagini, and how the depth signings of Craig Breslow, John Axford, and Jake Petricka fit into the mix. They also discuss the early news from spring about Devon Travis, Troy Tulowitzki, and Aaron Sanchez, the retirement of broadcast legend Jerry Howarth, and the opening day tribute and jersey retirement for the late Roy Halladay. They also answer listener questions, give out a Do Over, and introduce a new, once-a-year segment, “The First Goose Sighting of Spring.”

Note: The show is going biweekly until spring training games start unless something important breaks, but there will be occasional special bonus episodes of “Extra Pellets” with in depth content exclusively for Patreon donors.
