Montreal Threat: The Jays Play Their Final Exhibition Game Before Opening Day

Embed from Getty Images Here we are. Just one final exhibition game before the Blue Jays travel south to Florida for Opening Day. 52,682 people were packed into Montreal’s Olympic Stadium to get their annual two-day fix of baseball, showing the league’s front office how badly they would love another swing with the Expos back…

Spring Threat: Hutchison gets the ball against the Rays

Embed from Getty Images I think the countdown is officially on. Well, it’s been on for me since, like, the beginning of November (yeah, I took a couple of week to decompress before I started scrolling through my calendar and counting days), but we can start our official Opening Day countdown today as the Blue Jays…

Spring Threat: J.A. Happ and the Blue Jays play the Yankees in Dunedin

Embed from Getty Images It’s Easter weekend, so you know that baseball is right around the corner now. The Blue Jays, led by J.A.

Spring Threat: Marco Estrada makes his Grapefruit debut against the Pirates

Embed from Getty Images The last time we watched Marco Estrada pitch was Wednesday, October 21, 2015.

Spring Threat: Blue Jays and Phillies cancelled due to rain

Embed from Getty Images Yesterday, Aaron Sanchez did his best to prove that he deserves to break camp as a member of the Blue Jays’ starting rotation, and today, Gavin Floyd will try to do the same against the Phillies. And the game is on TV!  EDIT: Actually…. Unfortunately, there won’t be any Jays baseball…

Spring Threat: Sanchez gets the ball as the Jays host the Rays

Embed from Getty Images Well, that wasn’t very fun. Just as I started going on about difficult it is to temper expectations on this club as they dominate Grapefruit ball, they slam their faces into the wall and lose 8-5 to the Philadelphia Phillies.  Oh well, these are exhibition games, after all. Does very-unlikely-to-make-the-opening-night-roster Brad…

Spring Threat: Blue Jays head to Clearwater to take on the Phillies

Embed from Getty Images It’s really, really hard not to get excited about this team. As we all know, these exhibition games don’t mean a hell of a lot — even that’s being generous — but still, big bats picking up where they left off, pitching depth galore, and nice performances from prospects have all…
