Storytime: Blue Jays - 2016 Wild-Card vs Baltimore (Pt. 3)
Updated: Sep 23, 2021
The fall of 2016 was a time when all were wondering who the Blue Jays were and what exactly they could do. The previous year had brought the city to a high that hadn't been witnessed since 1993, but this was a new year and a team that had undergone much change. It took the Jays until game 162 to earn their Wild Card slot and the only thing standing in the way of a second straight divisional series appearance was the Baltimore Orioles. In this series we examine a Wild Card game that had equal parts excitement, anxiety and drama.
Part three is ready for your listening ears. This was a do-or-die game that had absolutely everything in it. It had outstanding pitching, it had impressive fielding, it had a manager who didn't know how to make proper use of his bullpen and it had... Ken Pagan. Don't remember Ken Pagan? Don't worry, Jake and Zubes will help refresh your memory.
