Mighty Yankees fall to Grichuk, Blue Jays in penultimate meeting

In yet another surprising turn of events, the Blue Jays (now 59-91) miraculously took two of three from the 98-53 Yankees this weekend, finishing off with a 4-2 record against New York and Boston this week. With timely hitting and (occasionally) flashy defence, the Blue Jays sharply manoeuvred their way through the iron wall that…

Blue Jays claw out series victory against slumping, tired Red Sox

In the season’s penultimate homestand, the Blue Jays, forever varying their lineups and defensive alignments, hosted the lowly and, now Dombrowski-less, Red Sox in a semi-meaningless three-game set this week at Rogers Centre. Though there were definitely some gaffes for the boys in blue, they played an overall solid set, taking two of three from…

Blue Jays stay cold, drop all four to Rays in Tampa

Even if it was, for a while, denied, it now appears possible, even probable, that the Blue Jays will lose 100 games this season, with this weekend’s four-game slaughtering in Tampa Bay illustrating that almost to perfection. Due in large part to a lack of pitching, non-existent offence, and occasionally sloppy defence, the Blue Jays…

Anthony Kay keeps Rays at bay in sound major-league debut

Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo took a long and meaningful stroll to the mound to relieve young hurler Anthony Kay on the night of his major-league debut, almost as if to allow Kay, 24, to be congratulated by his teammates on a job well done prior to being removed from the game. Upon arriving at…

Sure-handed Braves dominate Blue Jays in abbreviated interleague battle

In the team’s final interleague series of the season, the Blue Jays (now 55-85), strolled into Atlanta to face off against the steadfast Braves in an abbreviated two-game set that featured a slew of openers and relievers battling against one of the National League’s most potent offences. Though the Blue Jays dropped both games, worsening…

Astros, Verlander stifle Blue Jays in exhilarating set

Ruled and forever dominated by Justin Verlander (who, I might add, never fails to amaze), who no-hit the Blue Jays Sunday afternoon, the Astros unsurprisingly took the series from the lowly Blue Jays, who, despite dropping the series, played encouragingly well for most of it. Though the series is most likely going to be remembered…

Blue Jays split tight two-gamer with Donaldson and the Braves

This week, the Blue Jays paid homage to Josh Donaldson in a heartfelt tribute video played at Rogers Centre prior to the first game of a mini-set between the boys in blue and Atlanta Braves this week. Though somewhat uneventful and rather cleanly played (in general), the Blue Jays split the series with the NL…

Blue Jays snatch series victory from Texas in steady home series

Though this week’s series didn’t appear to be nearly as exciting as some series since the All-Star break, the Blue Jays (51-73), more youthful and excited than ever, pounded the Texas Rangers to take a series victory in a cleanly played home series in front of relatively strong crowds. Thanks to steady offensive contributions and…

Fearless Blue Jays split four-gamer against mammoth Yankees

Though rare, it is possible for losses to be fun. In the Blue Jays’ case, Sunday’s shattering 1-0 loss to the division-leading New York Yankees wasn’t nearly as disappointing as the score would suggest. One might even be able to call it somewhat “fun”. Thanks to a smattering of offensive contributions from the entirety of…

Bichette, Blue Jays roll past Rays in quick battle at the Trop

For a team that’s historically played terribly at Tampa’s Tropicana Field, the Blue Jays (47-70) didn’t exactly show it against the second-place Rays (66-50). Though outclassed at times, the boys in blue stole the series by winning two of three from the Rays and looked pretty good while doing it. Here’s a look at the…

Blue Jays slip up late, still split set in Baltimore

After an absolutely ludicrous trade deadline that surprised even the most in-the-know baseball fans, it’s only fitting that the next series the Blue Jays played was the exact opposite. Though somewhat exciting in the way of offence, this weekend’s four-game series in Baltimore was more or less underwhelming in most respects. Still, here’s a look…

Bichette and the Blue Jays sweep Royals amid trade deadline chaos

In a series that is bound to be endlessly forgotten due to the circumstances under which it was played, the Blue Jays, one of the most active team’s at this year’s trade deadline, trounced the lowly Kansas City Royals in a series best described as “transparent” this week. Led valiantly by Bo Bichette and the…
