Marcus Stroman Did Another Thing

This All-Star break couldn’t come fast enough. The story after the Blue Jays dropped three of four games to the Boston Red Sox over the course of the weekend wasn’t starting pitching and their inability to get deep into games, it wasn’t the plethora of defensive miscues made over the four days, it wasn’t even…

On Hope and the Toronto Blue Jays

After the final out was recorded in an underwhelming Game 5 of the 2016 American League Championship Series, there was an air of uncertainty surrounding the Toronto Blue Jays. An aging-but-dominant 2015 team earned another kick at the can, only to find themselves falling flat on their face in the exact same spot. What was…

Thank You, Jose

Before Blue Jays fans were treated to a magical 2015 season, a large chunk of them had followed the team so long without getting a taste of anything resembling competitive baseball. For years, anybody under the age of 25 was around long enough to be battle tested, but not enough so to have been able to…

It Begins: Blue Jays Trade Steve Pearce to Red Sox

Who had June 28th as the date the first domino falls?! The Blue Jays have traded Steve Pearce and cash considerations to the Boston Red Sox in exchange for Santiago Espinal. The 23-year-old Espinal was taken in the tenth round in 2016 by Boston and hasn’t played above High A, though he’s currently having a…

#TotallyRichard: Am I A Fool For Believing In Kendrys Morales?

Up until a few weeks ago, I probably would have put quotes around the word slugger, because…

Series Recap: The Blue Jays Somehow Earn Split In Anaheim

I’ve got to admit, after the first two games it looked like this was going to be a four game drubbing. But thankfully they managed to right the ship and improve to *checks notes* 10-16 over their last 16?! What happened? On Thursday, the Blue Jays found themselves in their bullpen in just the second inning…

Aaron Sanchez to the DL With Finger Contusion

The Blue Jays have placed Aaron Sanchez on the 10-Day Disabled List due to an index finger contusion on his throwing hand. This was the thing that knocked Sanchez out after the first inning of Thursday’s game against the Angels. Everybody knew something was a miss when he was all over the zone and didn’t…

Aaron Sanchez Leaves Start Due to Finger Injury

Aaron Sanchez had a rough first inning against the Los Angeles Angels tonight and didn’t make it out for the second. He didn’t throw a single curveball over an erratic 25-pitch frame and gave up two earned runs. After surrendering an RBI single to Albert Pujols, he glanced at his pitching hand, which obviously sent…
