Marcus Stroman has been nails this season, he always pitches well against the Yankees, and he enjoys important games. Add that all up, and we should be in line to witness a Stro Show tonight in what could be the Jays’ second series win in a (row if everything goes according to plan).
The 2017 season hasn’t gone as planned in Toronto. The Blue Jays, expected to contend again after back-to-back trips to the ALCS, are 9-18 after one month of play. It’s been bad, it’s been ugly, it’s been frustrating, it’s been hard to swallow. Thankfully, there are some prospects tearing up the minors worth paying attention…
Three wins? In a row?! It almost feels like it isn’t 2017! April showers bring May flowers, I’ll tell you what.
The Blue Jays are riding a two-game winning streak into New York, can they build on it? The Yankees won’t make it easy.
Remember when the Yankees weren’t good for, like, a year? That was fun. Now here we are, a month into the season, and Brox Bombers are hitting the shit out of the ball, and sit in a tie for first in the AL East with the goddamn Trash Birds. Ugh, 2017. Uggghhh.
It’s been a nightmare start to the season, there’s no doubt about that. But the Blue Jays are heading out of April with some momentum after stringing back-to-back wins together (and coming out of a series with a win) for the first time this year.
Today was supposed to be The Return of The Sanchez, instead, it was The Return of The Blister. Aaron Sanchez pitched just one inning against the Rays and was pulled after inducing an inning-ending double play. He noticeably struggled with command and wasn’t using his breaking ball, suggesting this issue is certainly blister related.
Aaron Sanchez has been activated from the 10-day disabled list and will have a chance to help the Blue Jays win their first series of the season.
The Jays are back home after a 3-4 road trip (that managed to improve their season winning percentage ha ha haaaa!) and are set to begin a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays.
We’ve seen this EXACT series before. Marcus Stroman takes on Blake Snell, Francisco Liriano goes up against Matt Andriese, and Aaron Sanchez faces Chris Archer in a battle of aces. The only thing missing is Jake Odorizzi and Marco Estrada, otherwise it’s Opening Weekend all over again. Hopefully for the Jays, it goes better this…
Just like in the Angels series, the Blue Jays were a tease this week. They’ll give you games like Tuesday night, with a Coghlan flip and a Marcus Stroman double, but then, right when you start to get excited, they’ll go and blow a 4-0 lead in the seventh inning. This team, man. This team. Ugh.
The Jays had a 4-0 lead in the seventh inning of today’s game, but ended up losing 8-4 in the 11th inning. The best part about it? They play again. They’ll either redeem themselves and make us forget about this afternoon’s catastrophe, or they’ll make it even worse. We shall see, because we all hate ourselves, so…
