(In Owen Wilson voice) Wow! Jose Berrios and the Blue Jays starters looked like competent big league pitchers! Drew and Kailtyn dissect Toronto's road weekend series in Detroit, and they discuss how the starting rotation feathered its nest against a Tigers team going through growing pains. Berrios and Manoah looked solid, can they maintain their level of performance? In contrast to the Jays' reassuring pitching, the offense birthed more questions than answers. Is mental exhaustion a factor in the offense's languid play? Jerrod Dyson?! Why?! Kirk played DH, is that good or bad? The duo takes a trip to Optimism Street before closing shop.
