Ari Shapiro on Sportsnet 650 (Vancouver) with Dave Sheldon (07/21)

My latest guest appearance on Dave Sheldon’s excellent sports show (07/21) discussing the Blue Jays: why grandstanding and posturing is hurting the Blue Jays in more ways than one, making a shift in baseball culture with an American-style corporate management group, how to deal with the moral dilemma associated with the return of elite closer Roberto Osuna, and why appealing to multiple demographics is a true exercise in patience, planning, and mutual respect.

Teskey and Shapiro – Episode 7

Colin Teskey & Ari Shapiro return for episode seven of the podcast which features some of the hottest and most saucy takes since the invention of the wheel. Together, they discuss: Kawhi Leonard’s fate with the Raptors, how sentimentality for DeMar DeRozan varies, why MLSE has become such a force to be reckoned with by baseball fans, if Mark Shapiro can turn half a season into a beacon of hope, and why the fate of Marcus Stroman come sooner rather than later.

Ari Shapiro on TSN 1260 (Edmonton) – The Dean Millard Show (07/09)

It was a pleasure to join host Dean Millard on TSN 1260 Edmonton to discuss all things Blue Jays. I discussed thoughts on the 89th Midsummer Classic and how the current format encourages players to be competitive while keeping fans excited for the produce of baseball. We also covered J. A. Happ and his future with the team, and also took a deep dive into the prospect of Roberto Osuna returning to the team following his 75-game suspension and the potential fallout regarding his earlier actions and legal troubles.
