Blue Jays 6, Phillies 5: Exhale

ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: DIDN’T BLOW A 6-1 LEAD How we doing, guys? Breathing normally? Things worth mentioning… Sam Gaviglio got the start and sixth-starter/part-time comedian Joe Biagini was listed as one of the bullpen arms, hopefully signaling the end of the starter experiment. Going into the game, you had the thought that if Sammy G could…

Blue Jays 5, Angels 3: They Won A Game!

I forgot what this feels like. Things worth mentioning After that series against Oakland where they found four different ways to lose, the Blue Jays really needed a good start from JA Happ and avoid any crazy shit from happening. Happ delivered, scattering three hits – all singles – across seven innings, while walking three…

Mets Sign Jose Bautista

Take two! According to well, everybody on baseball Twitter, but most notably the official New York Mets account, the Mets have signed old friend Jose Bautista to MLB-minimum deal. I think Anthony DiComo was the one that broke it. Bautista will make another attempt at sticking in the MLB after his time in Atlanta didn’t…

Really, it’s just us trying to bring humour to the series that was and talk about it while shit posting. Well now, we’re deciding to turn it into a podcast! It…

Athletics 3, Blue Jays 1: Below .500

It was only a matter of time, right? Things worth mentioning Tonight, we got the old Marco Estrada. He threw 42 changeups and got 9 swings and misses, something he hasn’t been able to do much all season. His whiff rate on the change coming into tonight was just 16.42 percent, down from 19.88 last…

Mets 12, Blue Jays 2: Big Apple Beatdown

The Blue Jays waited through an hour and a half rain delay for this. Things worth mentioning Jaime Garcia got rocked again, giving up six earned runs and not even making it out of the fourth innings. In just three May starts, he’s already up to 13 earned runs in 12 innings. What worries me…

Kendrys Morales Is Ruining My Life

Something funny happened in the seventh inning of Sunday’s game against the Red Sox. The Blue Jays, down by one, had Yangervis Solarte on first base with catcher Russell Martin at the plate. Martin ripped a 1-0 offering from Sox reliever Matt Barnes down the line and into the shady left field corner, starting a…

Series Recap: I hate Boston

As a Toronto fan, I’ve pretty much had enough of Boston sports teams. What happened? On Friday, the Blue Jays beat the Red Sox 5-3 in 12 innings. Luke Maile hit a game-tying home run off of Chris Sale in the seventh and then won it with a two-run walk off jack in the 12th….

Mariners 9, Blue Jays 3: Shit Happ-ens

Rough. Things worth mentioning In one start, JA Happ saw his ERA jump from 3.67 to 4.80. Allowing seven runs in 3.1 innings will do that to you. I’m not panicking about this rotation yet, but man, these guys are too good to be getting lit up on a nightly basis like this. Today was…

Blue Jays Acquire Giovanny Urshela

It was only a matter of time before the Blue Jays made a move for a hot hitting minor-league infielder! Yes, that’s right, Giovanny Urshela was traded from the Cleveland Indians to the Blue Jays in exchange for cash or a player to be named later. Imagine selling a human being, smh. Urshela, who has…

Mariners 5, Blue Jays 0: NO HIT

Usually this would be a vomit-inducing thing, but hoooooly shit! Things worth mentioning Marcus Stroman got roughed up once again, failing to reach the sixth inning for the sixth time in seven starts. He induced a ton of ground balls, but he wasn’t particularly good. His final line: 5IP 9H 5ER 2BB 2K. His ERA…

Your Heroes Aren’t Always Heroes

Whether we realize it or not, sports – and the people that participate in them – are a huge part of our lives. From social gatherings to a way to temporarily escape reality, anybody that watches it even casually will have at least one or two people that they speak fondly of. It’s human nature…
