For the Blue Jays, 2019’s first series was interesting, to say the very least. Playing against the lowly Detroit Tigers, the boys in blue managed to come away with an underwhelming but exciting split in the opening four-game set. Playing in front of sold out (then not-so-sold out) crowds at an occasionally leaky Rogers Centre…
Well, that was an interesting game. The Jays would end up losing 4-3 to the Tigers in extra innings, thus splitting the four-game series, but there’s certainly a lot to talk about.

When Kendrys Morales was dealt yesterday, it was reported that Anthony Alford would be coming up to join the 25-man roster. Instead, when the roster was officially announced today, it was Rowdy Tellez filling in Kendrys Morales’ spot.
After Wednesday night’s trade, sending veteran Kendrys Morales to the Oakland Athletics, the Toronto Blue Jays have been moving some pieces around.
To quote the legendary Macho Man Randy Savage, “Need a little excitement? Then snap into a Slim Jim.” And truer words have never been spoken. Now, you might be wondering what the heck does this have to do with anything Jays related. Or maybe you’re thinking that this is a strange way to lead into…
Ross Atkins pulled off a shocking, completely out-of-the-blue move just one day before Opening Day, sending Kendrys Morales to the Oakland Athletics in exchange for a player we’ve never heard of and some international bonus money.
