Hot Takes From the Farm: Week Fifteen

So. Ten days. We are in the midst of the third and final system-altering event of the summer (June draft, J2 signing day, and trade deadline) and while we await news as fans, a few players in the system do as well. For example, we’re all on Bo Watch including Bo. It’s fair to guess…


On Marcus Stroman, Our Beloved Determined Cocky Pitcher

In 2017, students interviewing at NYU’s College of Dentistry went through two interviews over the course of their morning touring the program. My understanding of the process was that the first interview was meant to be more academic and was aimed at testing the prospective candidate’s ability to handle the rigors of dental school, while…


Blue Jays take two of three from sluggish Tigers in Detroit

For the first time in what seems like a while, the Blue Jays rolled into Detroit to face a team that, surprisingly, had an even worse record than they do.

After a hapless and underwhelming series loss at the hands of the juggernaut Yankees in New York over the weekend, the Blue Jays, perpetually short-handed in the way of pitchers, hobbled into Boston to play a mammoth four-game series against the streaky Red Sox this week. Though the bats did come alive at times, and…


Ryan Borucki expected to join the Blue Jays in the next few days

The roster dance continued this morning, as Nick Kingham was designated for assignment in order to open up a spot on the 25-man roster for Thomas Pannone to make a spot start Thursday afternoon in Boston. That transaction also opened up a spot on the 40-man roster, so what’s the plan?


Vladdy 64: Digging for trends within Guerrero’s first 64 games

Through his first 64 games in the majors, it’s been a tale of three seasons for Vladimir Guerrero Jr. There were his first two weeks with the Blue Jays when he barely got a pitch to hit, the eight-game span in May when he collected five home runs and everything since then. Vladdy hasn’t looked…


Blue Jays acquire Wilmer Font from Mets
