UPDATE: Apparently there are sick days. Hope you get better quick, Jesse. Rest well.
Jesse Goldberg-Strassler, Voice of the Lansing Lugnuts and host of Around The Nest, will not take a sick day this Friday despite running a little hot. As usual, the weekly Blue Jays minor league podcast will still be broadcast live at 5 pm Eastern. Jesse will travel up and down the farm system from Dunedin north to Buffalo east to New Hampshire before heading west to Lansing. Be sure to ask any questions you may have about a minor league player in the comments below.

Here is this week's show description from Jesse:
Muni Kawasaki returns to the Majors, Jeff Hoffman returns to action, Chase De Jong returns to form, and Around the Nest returns with triumph to talk about the latest ins and outs of the Blue Jays' Minor League system. Join the radio voices of Triple-A Buffalo, Double-A New Hampshire, A-Advanced Dunedin and Single-A Lansing!
There will be talk about Jeff Hoffman's pro debut right off the bat, but I'd like to hear from David Fine about how Chase De Jong looked in his almost complete game in Lansing on Thursday night. And as the June 1 opt-out date is looming, perhaps Ben Wagner can let us know about how Randy Wolf has been able to be so successful, giving up just five earned runs in 48 innings, despite a 1.4 WHIP and not striking out a lot of guys.
