Planning The Parade: Leafs Rookie Projections, Toronto FC Championship, Blue Jays Pain

Designated Hitter

Artem and Arslan re-entered the room to discuss many things. Starting with the World Cup, Team North America garnered a lot of attention. Auston Matthews is the toast of Toronto at this time, and some of projected point totals for him and the Leafs’ top two other prospects, William Nylander and Mitch Marner.

The guys discussed what would be acceptable and exciting point totals for the rookies when this season is over. Would 49 points over 82 games for Matthews please Leafs fans? Would 45 points for Nylander please Leafs fans? How about Mitch Marner?
What are best case scenarios for all these rookies?

Which rookie do the guys love that will crack the Leafs defensive pairings?

Things are a lot more positive at BMO Field these days. And Heck no, we don’t mean the Argos. They’re still irrelevant. We’re talking about Eastern Conference leaders, Toronto FC. They defeated Chicago Fire last weekend and took over first place in the East. Who looked amazing for the Reds? What was the game like and what do we expect for their next game vs the Red Bulls of New York? Dan Riccio from Sportsnet’s the Fan 590 joined the boys to explain more.

Toronto are very much a championship calibre team, find out why in this week’s Planning the Parade.

Finally, Artem put his expert hat on to discuss the Blue Jays and their woeful play as of late. After dropping two of three against the Boston Red Sox, things have been iffy as the Blue Jays have won one of two versus the Tampa Bay Rays.

All this and more, only on Planning the Parade.
