A Review of the Shapiro/Atkins Body of Work & More With Andrew Stoeten


We hear all the time of good stories where athletes come from nowhere to star in their sport at all levels, so why not add one from the other side to the feel-good list? We all could use a heartwarming tale no?

Well, this isn’t as much of a tale as it is a discussion about all things Blue Jays, but a discussion with Andrew Stoeten is, in fact, a good story as Andrew tells how he came to be one of the brightest and most respected writers covering the Blue Jays and baseball in the GTA and Canada.

Andrew and Jonah Sigel discuss the Alex Anthopoulos years, the transition from Beeston to Shaprio, the passing of the torch up to the current state of the franchise. Was Vladdy overhyped, what they should Rogers do with the stadium, what is holding back renovations, and is the manager doing a good job are among the things Andrew dishes on.

If you are a baseball fan and, or a fan of the Blue Jays you will enjoy this session.

I’ll add a comment to avoid the embarrassment of being shutout. While Andrew is a good writer, I still don’t understand the idea of hiring a diehard blue jay fan (goes for any team in any league) to write critically about the team they grew up worshipping and still do. I also understand that it’s difficult to find an impartial writer in the city the team plays at. That said, has to be 100s of Toronto based writers who maybe didn’t grow up in Toronto or don’t wear Jays on their sleeves. 
Just my opinion to
