Series Recap: SWEEEEP

Leave it to the Trash Birds to roll into town and completely turn around a dejected Blue Jays team. The Jays hammered the O’s over this weekend’s four-game series and now sit in third place in the American League East.


The Deck McGuire Redemption Tour has been stalled

The Blue Jays made a roster move during Saturday’s game against Baltimore grabbing righty reliever Preston Gulimet off waivers from the St. Louis Cardinals. In a corresponding roster move, the Jays put the Deck McGuire Redemption Tour on hold as the journeyman has been designated for assignment.


Series Preview: The Trash Birds!

The Blue Jays are having a hell of a time scoring runs. Like, it at times appears as though they’re actively trying not to score runs. Obviously that isn’t actually the case but this less-than-stellar lineup has hit a pretty horrendous funk. They got completely mowed down over the span of 13 innings by Sonny Gray and…


The Blue Jays do a cool thing with their final pick in the draft

The 40-round marathon known as the First-Year Major League Baseball draft has finally come to a conclusion. I think most of us checked out after the first few selections of the second day because by the later rounds you’re really just taking flyers on random names. That’s just a fan’s perspective, though. For a player,…


Jason Grilli was offered a Blue Jays broadcast gig, but turned it down

One year ago, Jason Grilli was nearing the end of his brief-but-dramatic tenure as a Toronto Blue Jay. He was like a comet. Grilli came into town, burned brilliant, but faded away shortly after. He finished the 2017 season with the Texas Rangers, but for all intents and purpose, he’s essentially retired.


The Jays Need To Get Younger Now

Monday night was Christmas in June for many of us prospect lovers, some of whom might actually enjoy watching the Jays’ affiliates more than the Jays. Not that it’s hard to do that these days. And the MLB Draft delivered some excitement into our lives on what would have otherwise been a pretty boring evening….


Blue Jays to sign third-round pick Adam Kloffenstein well over slot value

The Blue Jays have taken a very different approach to this year’s draft than we’ve seen from the Mark Shapiro and Ross Atkins regime over their first two rounds at the helm. Rather than going with safe, projectable college seniors, the Cleveland Boys have gone heavy on high school players. They used their first-round pick…


The Aaron Sanchez Redemption Tour

Clearly Aaron Sanchez read my piece outlining all the various things that might have been causing him to pitch like shit and turned it around with a strong outing against the Tigers to avoid getting swept in Detroit. So what did he change?


Jordan Groshans plans to sign with the Blue Jays

Jeff Blair talked about Toronto’s first two draft picks today on his radio show with Ben Nicholson-Smith. You can listen to the segment here, but to paraphrase, Blair mentioned Mark Shapiro and Ross Atkins in their previous two drafts going with safer college picks rather than high school players with potential signability concerns. He referenced…
