Planning The Parade: Toronto FC Transfer Talk, Blue Jays Pitching Issues?
The end of Euro 2016 may have the guys going through a bit of sports withdrawal, but there is still plenty to talk about on this week’s episode of Planning the Parade. The show almost didn’t happen because co-host Mitchell Tierney was still emotionally recovering from having his apartment power go out for five minutes.
The guys discuss what it would be like if power went out in downtown Toronto for a significant period of time. Then, surprisingly, things turn to sports, with returning Blue Jays guest Neil Shyminsky on to talk about the halfway point of the season. Well, at least that was the idea anyway, the guys end up talking a lot about Sudbury for some reason. However, the do find time in between conversations about building houses on bedrock to break down the first half of the Jays season. They also talk about Aaron Sanchez, what to expect from the Jays at the Trade Deadline, and the return of Chris Colabello.
The Blue Jays aren’t the only team in the swing of things, however. Toronto FC are trying hard to stay afloat with a number of key injuries, and the guys take a look at the season so far. They also break down the Damien Perquis move, and Jozy Altidore’s return to the lineup. Perquis wasn’t the only Toronto athlete leaving town, however, the guys look back at the move that sent Jonathan Bernier to the Anaheim Ducks, and what this means for the Leafs. They explore possible replacements. Finally, it’s a quick chat about the state of the Raptors after they make their first free agent signing, Jared Sullinger formerly of the Boston Celtics.
