The Daily Duce: Friday, September 30th

Daily??!?!? Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet sorts through the scenarios for what could be a wild (and wet) weekend with respect to the Wild Card. The big one: if the Jays are swept in Boston, Detroit could pass them by winning three of four, or tie them (forcing a tiebreaker game) by winning just two of four. Meanwhile,…

Is This It?

Photo Credit: Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports The Jays’ season isn’t over yet. I don’t think the Jays season is going to be over on Monday morning, either, and not just because of the crazy weather we may be in store for. I say that despite another night of immense frustration for the Jays’ offence. A night that…

Game Threat: Once In A Lifetime, Blue Jays (87-71) vs. Orioles (86-72)

Photo Credit: Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports Things could get dark tonight. It won’t be the end, of course, but it could be an end. The game against Baltimore is, of course, massive. It carries huge playoff implications in an ever-tightening Wild Card race that may not even be solved by the end of the weekend, depending…

Fowles: The Last Regular Season Home Game

Photo Credit: Kevin Sousa-USA TODAY Sports For a moment, let’s forget the painful, jealous feelings induced by watching the Boston Red Sox win the AL East last night. Let’s forget that the division really should have been ours, if not for an inexplicable early September implosion we’re still not over. In fact, let’s just go…

Game Threat: No Compassion, Blue Jays (87-70) vs. Orioles (85-72)

Photo Credit: John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports The Orioles, as I mentioned earlier today when talking about how the Jays might/should setup their playoff rotation, have been godawful against left-handed pitching this season. As a team they’ve posted just an 83 wRC+ in the split. Meanwhile, in three starts since he’s returned to the rotation…

The Daily Duce: Wednesday, September 28th

Daily??!?!? Some fascinating stuff is coming to light now that the proposals for the Jays’ Dunedin upgrades have become public, and you’ll be surprised to know that most of it doesn’t look so good for the taxpayers who are footing all but $15-million of the $81-million bill. Both Field of Schemes and Shadow Of The…

Stoeten Opens Gregor’s Box – 09/28/16

What would happen if the Blue Jays played a season and there were no Griff Bags or Benny Fresh chats for me to hijack? Not a whole, it turns out, because 2016 has been a season without those sweet, delicious, painful collections of questions from utter dopes. And it’s turned out fine, I guess. Minus just…

Blue Jays beat Orioles 5-1 to kick off crucial series on a winning note

Photo Credit: Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports I don’t normally go with “portrait” style images on these posts, but bravo, Nick Turchiaro. That’s a photo right there. BECAUSE THE JAYS WON AND WE CAN BREATHE AGAIN! Granted, Roberto Osuna made it a little bit scary at the end, but Aaron Sanchez put in an excellent six…
