The Jays Had A Meeting With CC Sabathia?

Well here’s one that actually makes a bit of sense, but that certainly comes as a bit of a surprise: CC Sabathia met with Blue Jays on Tuesday — George A. King III (@GeorgeAKingIII) December 13, 2017 Maybe it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise, though. Sabathia, of course, came from the Cleveland organization….


Encouraging Report On Aaron Sanchez

3.8 wins per Fangraphs and 4.7 wins per Baseball Reference. That’s what Aaron Sanchez was worth to the Blue Jays in 2016. In 2017 both sits pegged his value at precisely zero. Sanchez managed to make just eight starts for the club this year, throwing just 36 innings. His ERA was 4.25. His FIP was 5.74….

Shohei Ohtani Chooses the Angels!

Well here’s something I didn’t expect to ever write: Shohei Ohtani is going to be a member of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Mike Trout. Shohei Ohtani. Andrelton Simmons. Justin Upton. Are the Angels… kinda good? LOL. No. Not really. They’re still paying the withering husk of Albert Pujols between $27 and $30 million…

Dee Gordon Off the Market, Traded to Seattle

Goddamn, Jerry Dipoto loves a trade. And it seems that the Mariners’ freewheelin’ GM has made himself another one, moving to acquire one of the players who Jays fans have most been talking about over the last several months, Dee Gordon.
