Randal Grichuk hits the disabled list

They’re calling it a “right knee sprain” though I have a feeling it’s actually a little bit of “can’t hit disease.” Regardless, Randal Grichuk was placed on the 10-day disabled list today and Gift Ngoepe has been recalled from Triple-A Buffalo in his place.

Series Preview: The supposedly-a-playoff-contender Twins!

The Minnesota Twins being a playoff team last rattled me to the core. It was difficult to watch a team as bad as the Twins manage to make the second wild card spot when I felt the Blue Jays, had not just about every single possible thing went wrong, could have been in that position….

Stooges In The Dirt

The good ol’ dirt road is full of twists and effin’ shouts, as all of us hardworking people know. You can walk in the dirt, you can question the dirt, and you can think as you travel down it like a lost Hobo in search of some kind of definitive answer, or next sip of…

Rotation Review, Vol. 5: Jays Ace Happ to the rescue

Well, that was bad. After JA Happ and Aaron Sanchez both had solid outings, it was then followed up with disastrous outings from Estrada, Stroman and Garcia. Overall, the team went 1-4 this turn around, and responded by adding some bullpen relief by optioning Devon Travis to Buffalo and recalling Carlos Ramirez.

Series Recap: Blue Jays fail to capitalize on a weak opponent

I think the title kinda says it all, honestly. The Jays scuffled through a seven-game gauntlet against the Yankees and Red Sox, winning just two games. Though the Boston series was incredibly close and Toronto easily could have come out with a couple more wins, the team looked outclassed by the two top teams in…

Blue Jays 7, Rangers 2: J.Ace Happ

Surely they won’t be swept by this team, right? RIGHT? Things worth mentioning… Not sure if it’s because it’s a contract year or if this actually happened, but J.A Happ continued being whoever the hell J.A Happ was this April. He came into today striking out 12.7 per nine and added another nine over seven…

Devon Travis down, Carlos Ramirez up

I don’t know if this is the move everyone was expecting, but it isn’t surprising. Given Devon Travis’ struggles at the plate and the fact he has options, the second baseman will be the odd man out as the Jays add another arm to their bullpen.

Rangers 6, Blue Jays 4: SMDH

No Bautista, no Odor, so do we even still hate these guys? The answer is yes. Game one! Things worth mentioning… This was a weird start for Marcus Stroman. Four of the first five Rangers hitters crossed the plate after two singles, a walk, and a Joey Gallo home run. After that, Stroman seemed to…

Series Preview: Time to clean up the garbage again!

The Blue Jays took two-of-three from the trash-eating, sewer-dwelling Rangers back in early April. Can they do it again this weekend when they host them in Toronto? Remember: The Rangers have lost six-straight playoff games to the Jays.

Series Recap: Bleh-ston

The Blue Jays lose their second series in a row, this time to their other AL East foe Boston Red Sox? Is it too early to panic?!?!?! What Happened On Monday, J.A. Happ pitched splendidly, striking out ten hitters over seven innings. He left the game with the lead, but thanks to a few singles and a…

So, uh, Troy Tulowitzki

The Blue Jays have an impending roster crunch on their hands. When Josh Donaldson is eventually activated from the 10-day disabled list they’re going to have to send a player down to Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move. You’re welcome for explaining that very complicated reality of baseball roster moves.
