The Blue Jays did it, they signed Kevin Gausman to a five year, 110 million dollar contract.
Breakups hurt. Trust me, for the past week I’ve been going through one. Just like me, Semien has broken up with the Toronto Blue Jays as he’s signed a 7-year deal with the Texas Rangers per Robert Murray.
José Berríos just re-signed for seven years for a total of 131 million. The speculated breakdown of the contract is 11 million for this season (where he’d have made 11 million in arbitration) and 20 million until the end of the 2028 season.
Despite not making the playoffs, Blue Jays’ players continue to win awards for what is the biggest “what-if” season. After Marcus Semien won the Gold Glove, Vlad Jr. won the Hank Aaron and a bunch of players got nominated for either the MVP, All-MLB, and Cy Young, there are three new award winners.
Coming into the 2021 MLB season, one could easily say that the starting rotation for the Toronto Blue Jays was the weakest link. They had the bats and they had a good-looking bullpen until the injury bug hit the team. The team’s starting pitching, however, was a concern.
I’m going to say something that’ll sound controversial and I may be dunked on for saying it. However, I think it must be said: In recent days, I’ve started to lean towards not re-signing Robbie Ray.
Coming into the minor league season, the position players of the High-A Vancouver Canadians didn’t excite me in the slightest.
Vladdy Jr. and Marcus Semien nominated for AL MVP, Robbie Ray nominated for Cy Young, and Alek Manoah not a finalist for Rookie of the Year
It’s awards season! Here are the Blue Jays who are in the mix…
Since the start of September, I’ve been saying Marcus Semien WILL win the Gold Glove. The shortstop playing second base for 2021 won the American League’s 2B Gold Glove.
The Toronto Blue Jays have five Silver Slugger nominees, Vladimir Guerrero Jr, Bo Bichette, Marcus Semien, Teoscar Hernandez and Loudres Gurriel Jr. There are two locks, two maybes and one unlikely player. Let’s run through their stats.
Shortly before I started writing for Blue Jays Nation, I finished my diploma in Management and Entrepreneurship. While this program was not my primary interest, I did learn a lot about sustainability in business. Even our beloved Toronto Blue Jays are a business, meaning that sustainable practices must be implemented.
