AtN, a triple steal, and the Futures Game

Let's begin with the latest "Around the Nest," talking Matt Dean, Mitch Nay, and perspectives on other notables within the Blue Jays organization, with a new show every Friday:

From here, for a nice throwback highlight, enjoy Vanderbilt executing the rare triple steal:

Three former Lugnuts represented the Blue Jays in the Future Game -- Dalton Pompey, A.J. Jimenez and Daniel Norris -- with fellow former Lug Noah Syndergaard appearing as part of the Mets' organization. Norris looked solid in a scoreless inning, but it was Pony Pompey who took most of the attention, delivering singles off of talented Lucas Giolito and Robert Stephenson and swiping second base. * Yesterday, both Dean and Nay had their 14-game hitting streaks snapped in the Lugnuts' 3-1 loss at Bowling Green, dropping Lansing to 11-12 in the second half. The series finale is tonight. The Lugs, who hit so well in Kentucky in the first half, have seen their offense quieted in recent days. They're still batting for a healthy average both this month and overall, but the runs have been scant. With Jeremy Gabryszwski starting tonight, some more offense is in order to send the squad back home on a positive note.
