Every Friday afternoon at 5 pm Lansing Lugnuts broadcaster Jesse Goldberg-Strassler calls his radio colleagues in the farm system to chat about Blue Jays minor leaguers. He also takes questions from our readers so if you are curious about any prospect or team, ask away below and Jesse will do his best to answer as many as he can.
The description for this week's show--as well as this post's cover image--was provided by Jesse:
Around the Nest reaches mid May, with the weather warming and divisional play heating up. In the International League, the Buffalo Bisons enjoy the benefits of a deep rotation. In the Eastern League, the Fisher Cats turned a scintillating double play in Binghamton to halt a losing streak. In the Florida State League, Justin Shafer turned in a second gem in three starts while L.B. Dantzler's bat is white hot. And in the Midwest League, Anthony Alford continues to reach base every day -- but his headlines are stolen by a dominant Rowdy Tellez and J.D. Davis. Join the radio voices of the Toronto Blue Jays' MiLB system, including a newcomer to the show, for the ins and outs of the organization.
Around The Nest will be broadcasting LIVE here at 5 pm Eastern.
Past shows' archives can be found on YouTube here.
My question of the week is for Jesse: Since you've seen the newly-acquired Ronald Torreyes play in the Midwest League, can you tell us a little about him and what the folks in New Hampshire can expect from him?
Also, I'd like to extend a very warm welcome to Fisher Cats broadcaster Ben Gellman-Chomsky and Lugnuts broadcaster David Fine, both of whom will be making their Around The Nest debuts today.
