Around the Nest Week 8, 2019 - Walk-Offs are for Winners

Walk-Offs are for Winners

Welcome back to Around the Nest!

Though things haven’t exactly been going swimmingly for the major-league club, the Blue Jays’ minor-league affiliates still have a lot to be excited about! This week’s episode will highlight just a few of those bright spots!

The Dunedin Blue Jays walk off in two straight games, Gabriel Moreno debuts with a bang as the Lugnuts pull off a home sweep in the midst of road woes, Buffalo gets Striped at home, and Brock Lundquist is catching fire for New Hampshire! It’s the latest news and anecdotes from around the organization, as seen through the eyes of the radio broadcasters.

As always, we welcome your questions in the comments below. Here are a few questions from the Around The Nest team:

  • What is a realistic time for Nate Pearson to debut? Does he break camp with the big club next year? Or does he take a little more time to develop?
  • Who do you see as a comparable to Alejandro Kirk at the big-league level? Does he look Salvador Perez-esque, or does he strike you as more of a Yadier type catcher?
  • What’s your fondest memory of watching minor-league baseball, whether in person or through a broadcast — let us know!

From all of us here at Around the Nest, we hope you have a tremendous and relaxing long weekend!
