Happ-y Days! Blue Jays Beat Pirates

Sorry for the title. Blue Jays beat a split-squad Pirates team in Dunedin today! We’re starting to get close, guys. Today was the last televised spring game until the annual Montreal trip. Things worth mentioning… Opening Day starter? J.A. Happ was cruising today, pitching six strong innings. A Starling Marte home run in the sixth…


Blue Jays Beat Split-Squad Phillies

So a game happened today! The Phillies sent half of their team to Lakeland to take on the Tigers this afternoon, and the other half stayed in Clearwater to welcome the Blue Jays. Jaime Garcia picked up his second win of the spring as the Jays beat the Phillies 6-4. Things worth mentioning… Jaime Garcia…

Trying to Make Sense of the Blue Jays Bullpen Logjam

The Spring Training finish line is finally in sight, and now the Blue Jays have some decisions to make regarding their relievers. The team has a limited amount of spots in that major league bullpen and a whole lot of potential arms trying to get them. Let’s try to make sense of it all.


Baker’s Dozen! Jays Win 13-6

The Blue Jays beat the Braves 13-6 in a high scoring affair this afternoon. *YAWN* Are we there yet? Things worth mentioning (with notes from yesterday’s game against the Red Sox)… The good news from J.A. Happ’s start yesterday is that he struck out the side in the first inning; the bad news is that…


Magic Marco Shows off his Changeup

Does that title seem a little clickbaity? First off, I love Marco Estrada interviews. He usually gives thoughtful, well-explained answers. It’s refreshing to see an athlete’s passion for his craft come through in the way they talk about it. I also really love Marco Estrada’s changeup. It’s hard for a soft tossing pitcher in the…


The Zeke Era Is OVER (for real this time)

You either die as a playoff hero or live long enough to see yourself cut because of a log jam in the outfield…or something like that. The Blue Jays have granted outfielder Ezequiel Carrera his release this morning. Carrera was designated for assignment at the end of February to make room for Seung-hwan Oh on…


Guy With Horrible Mustache Starts Game, Gets Rocked

The Blue Jays won a game against a team not named the Baltimore Orioles in Dunedin today. This spring has seemed like it has gone on for years, but at least this game was televised, so we got to see this gem. Ah, the beautiful sights of baseball. Blue Jays beat the Tigers 6-3! Things…


Baby Blue Jays Beat Baltimore

ALLITERATION. How do you get folks excited for a mid-week afternoon Spring Training game that isn’t televised? You send the kids in to rough up the Orioles, that’s how! Blue Jays win 9-3. I’m sure we’re all taking this very rationally.
