Whispers About Jerry Howarth’s Future?

There are few people who I would pass along a tweet like this from, outside of the obvious mainstream sources, but Jonah — aka @yyzsportsmedia — has proven time and again that he definitely does have some good sources in the local sports media world (and I think radio stuff is a particular strength), and…

Daily Duce: Friday, September 29th

Daily??!?!? Great stuff, as always, from BP Toronto, as Gideon Turk does some quick and dirty math to see that the Jays really — genuinely! seriously! — aren’t too far off contention in the American League. The Twins will show us the way! Another great one at BP comes our way from Dave Church, who…

Series Preview: Riding It Out

Well, we’re finally here. The last weekend of the 2017 baseball season. The Yankees are playoff bound while the Jays are riding things out. It’s been a season full of ups downs, where, unfortunately, there were more downs than ups. Hopefully we can end the season on a positive note and give the Yankees a…

Game Threat: Brooms, Blue Jays (75-83) @ Red Sox (91-66)

The season might be over, but also, fuck the Red Sox. Sweeping them, though it would alter the Blue Jays draft position (lolol what is this the NHL????) would be a good time. It would also mean we don’t have to watch those trash ass Massholes celebrate an American league East title, because that’s always…

So What Do We Make of Teoscar?

If you wanted to write a fairy tale beginning to baseball player’s career, you’d be hard pressed to invent a better one than what Blue Jays fans have been witnessing this month with Teoscar Hernandez. There are some rather rich threads running through his story and recent Blue Jays history. Eight years ago this month,…

Josh Donaldson Is Magic

What in the holy-shitting hell, Josh Donaldson? The Jays’ third baseman hit two goddamned home runs off Chris Sale on Tuesday night, and somehow that fact isn’t even the one I walked away from the game most utterly impressed by. Think about that! With his three hit, two dinger night, Donaldson took his season wRC+…

Daily Duce: Tuesday, September 26th

Elsewhere at BP Toronto, Mike Passador goes the silver lining route and looks at five things that went right for the Jays in 2017. Speaking of the king (which… weren’t we?), over…

This Bautista Story Was Maybe The Highlight of Sunday

You’ll hear media folks say all the time that Spring Training is the ideal place to really get to know ballplayers, and to really get the best out of your interviews with them. They’re not yet obsessively focused on the task at hand, or full-on fighting waves of frustration, trying not to get caught in…
