Planning The Parade 09/21: Toronto FC draw, Blue Jays Stretch Run, Hockey

This week's Planning The Parade saw the guys talk about the Toronto FC came back against the New York Red Bulls and stole a crucial point to stay atop the Eastern Conference. Who's the newest toast of Toronto? 

The crew's favourite guest, Dan Riccio from Sportsnet's The Fan, host of TFC Pitchside. After covering all things Toronto FC, Dan and Artem chatted Blue Jays to get informed. Will the Blue Jays win the AL East? Do they even have a chance? What about small ball/long ball?  

Finally, the topic shifted to the World Cup of Hockey. Auston Matthews looks quite decent out there, but there's another Leaf who could make a huge impact for the Blue & White this year. Who's that? Which Leaf is ready to take the next step to become a key contributor?

The crew also debuted a new segment where they rated and predicted hypotheticals. Sounds very radio-esque. They thought they could try and be original, I suppose. 

All that and more, on Planning The Parade, the Toronto sports podcast.

Planning The Parade: Leafs Rookies Points, Toronto FC Championship? Blue Jays Pain

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. Tehyre 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
