Aren't you tired of baseball podcasts where the hosts are obviously smarter than you? Wouldn't it be nice if you could listen to a couple folks who admittedly aren't very bright at all so you could feel better and superior about your takes and level of knowledge while having some good times along the way? Well, you're in the right place. Less Than Jays. The People's Blue Jays podcast. From Jake Goldsbie & The Zubes comes a new show about the Toronto Blue Jays and life in general. Two weekly ...

Surprise! One extra episode is on the way for you. Dan Vogelbach grabbed an Opening Day 40 man slot at the expense of Yosver Zulueta (who we all learned about for no reason!), so I brought in the notorious Spencer to break down an admittedly fairly basic caricature of a Type Of Guy that has always existed in baseball. The Big Sluggin DH. If you're …

In honour of Jose Berrios being named Opening Day starter The much maligned WhyJays / Mr. Baby / aka White Silk joins the show to take a closer look at La Makina, a model of pitching consistency that had an odd hiccup in 2022 but managed to bounce back to his old self with a ste…

Anyone who remembers where they were when George Springer joined the Toronto Blue Jays also probably remembers that is was our friend BK live from the barber's chair as the one to break the news. Coming off a slightly disappointing season for Springer, BK takes up the mantle as a Springer Guy to look into the numbers and discover if there is any da…

Alejandro Kirk experienced how quick a narrative can change in 2023, where a previous season's favourite ball of barrels and joy was replaced with a lack of power and some serious trouble adding value on the basepaths. A bat first prospect, he has developed into an excellent defensive catcher, but is the fall off in 2023 too much to bear or is ther…

I love Chris Bassitt. This is a guy who represents what pitching is really all about to me.

We know him, we love him, we want to see more of him. Danny Jansen has been around the Blue Jays longer than Mark Shapiro. What could happen if he played a full season's worth of games? And what unmeasurables does he fill our hearts with? Scott Belford of the Walkoff Pod joins to get sentimental about the Jays de facto captain, and wonder what has …

It's not all 45 FV when it comes to Toronto Blue Jays prospects. Orelvis Martinez is the closest thing the team has to a potential breakout bat in the minor leagues, a power swinger that has crushed the ball at every level and has shown recently that he is capable of making adjustments at every level to become better and better as he matures as a h…

Davis Schneider exploded into the hearts and minds of Blue Jays fans in 2023 with an all-time great start to his career and some season-saving heroics when a desperate team needed them most. Unfortunately his season concluded with an equally ice-cold stretch, so how do we determine where the real Davis Schneider expectations should lie? Johnny Giun…

The Blue Jays liked Yariel Rodriguez enough to give him a five-year contract this offseason, but few players on the roster have as many questions that can be asked about their role and reasonable expectation. What do the Jays see that results in them signing a deal with a player that skipped all of a prime year in 2023 to bet on themselves, and is …

Paul DeJong and Jordan Hicks are your 2023 Blue Jays Trade Deadline acquisitions. It's definitely an improvement, but is it enough to satiate our ravenous need for The Perfect Roster? As long as Bo is healthy. And he is, right? Right?Από τον Less Than Jays

Time for us to do what we do best, and that's make up some trades! We've sectioned off good players from bad teams and a few sweethearts we've got our eyes on as well, just a few weeks ahead of the MLB Trade Deadline as this extremely frustrating and wildly successful Jays season rolls into the back half. We're going to stay in our Lane.... THOMAS …

Gahhhhh it's so frustrating to the lose to the fuckin' Yankees. If you have any sort of problem with the way the Blue Jays are built it probably came out at some point in the last four games.

We're two series into the season, time to make some sweeping generalizations about the players we do and don't believe in. Plus, some of the new Rogers Centre renos are revealed and we're not even jealous that they didn't invite two curmudgeonly old washed up idiots to eat the food and tweet about being in the exclusive club. We're not jealous!!! S…
