Listen: The Prospects Baseball Show – Episode 24 – Sylvan Lake & MLB Expansion Talk

Published

The World Series is over and now free agency speculation begins in MLB. This week on the Prospects Baseball Show Jordan Blundell and Dean Millard debated who the biggest name is behind the biggest fish in the pond, Gerrit Cole.  The WCBL will welcome in Sylvan Lake for the 2021 season as an expansion team and the GM and President of Baseball Operations Aqil Samuel joined the show to discuss the work that needs to be done for the team to take their soon to be built field in the west end of Sylvan Lake. It’s said to be ‘state of the art’ and Aqil gave a sneak peak at what that means.

Hear from Aqil Samuel, GM and President of Baseball Operations for the new WCBL team in Sylvan Lake.

Jordan and Dean also unveiled their Top 5 favourite MLB expansion teams dating back to 1960 and debated whether or not the Jays should chase the next power hitting lefty from Japan. Plus is Shohei Ohtani better off being strictly a hitter instead of trying to pull off the Babe Ruth?

 

After 22 years in the media world of television and radio, from Brandon, Manitoba to Red Deer, Alberta over to Regina, Saskatchewan and settling in Edmonton, Alberta, I found myself on the side of the desk with a pink slip in my hand, unexpectedly. ​ Over the next few weeks and with my mind racing to a million thoughts, I decided to embark on the journey of podcasting. My broadcasting background has mainly been in sports, and it will still be a big part of my podcasting, but I will be focusing on other subjects as well, from sports to cannabis education and more.

The Houston Astros sign stealing scandal is one of the biggest MLB has ever had.

We also chatted with new Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Manager Brent Lavallee about his new job with the Toronto Blue Jays, his old job at LSUS (including one very memorable night) and youth baseball in North Delta, BC.

Jordan gave us the lowdown on his winter signings and if you entered our Ultimate Sports Passes contest, you’ll want to tune in.
