2021 MLB preview: the AL East
In the third edition of the 2021 MLB Preview Series, Yankees fan Jonathan "JJ" Jaggard joins Jack to preview the AL East.
JJ and Jack offer their thoughts on the Baltimore Orioles (0:00 - 17:20), Boston Red Sox (17:20 - 28:45), Toronto Blue Jays (28:45 - 44:20), Tampa Bay Rays (44:20 - 1:01:35) and New York Yankees (1:01:35). Longtime Toronto area sportscaster (and co-admin of one of the largest Blue Jays' Facebook groups) Barry Davis submitted a voicemail to the show, previewing the Blue Jays' season. We play the voicemail and react. Can the Blue Jays seriously contend for a division title? Are the Rays set to regress from their 2020 World Series run, or is Tampa Bay once again being overlooked? Did the Yankees properly address their pitching concerns this past winter? Will they finally get back to the World Series in 2020? Jack and JJ debate. What should Orioles and Red Sox fans be watching for this season? JJ and Jack also take a look at the division's top prospects expected to make an impact this season, including the no. 1 prospect in all of baseball, Rays' shortstop Wander Franco. Of course, this full episode is complete with in-depth analysis, over/under picks, win total projections, and plenty more!
