The Return Of Deck McGuire!

I really don’t want to write a whole lot about Deck McGuire right now, because the chances that he makes the Blue Jays are slim, and the chances that he pitches for them in any meaningful way are even slimmer, but it’s certainly worth noting that the maligned former top Blue Jays draft pick (from…

Keep The Yankees Away From Jurickson Profar!

The Blue Jays should go after the former number one prospect in baseball, Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar. If you’ve listened to Birds All Day over the last few months, you’ll know that this is more of a Drew thing than it is mine, but it’s a good idea! Such a good idea, in fact, that…

Otani’s Jump To MLB Hits a Snag, Theoretically

Last night, when Jon Heyman tweeted out his report for Fan Rag about the players union balking at the posting system that had been tentatively agreed upon by MLB and NPB for the transfer of Shohei Otani to North America, I decided not to breathlessly rush up a post about it. After all, the Jays…

How Might the Blue Jays and Braves Line Up In Trade?

Alex Anthopoulos has just now barely begun to get his feet wet as GM of the Atlanta Braves, so it’s maybe a little bit early to start thinking about the return of his big tradin’ ways. But Anthopoulos has never been shy to make deals, or to push for deals, and over his years in…

Rays Reportedly Interested In José Bautista

The Rays are going to sign José Bautista. I mean… obviously, right? They’re perennially looking for a bargain.

They know him very well by virtue of facing…

Daily Duce: Tuesday, November 14th

Daily?!?!?? It’s been a week since Roy Halladay’s tragic death, and at this point I figure most people have found all the pieces memorializing the Jays’ legend that they’ve needed. So I’m not going to fill this Daily Duce with pieces remembering him. I’d be remiss, however, if I didn’t pass along Drew’s outstanding work…

Crasnick: Jays ‘Have Reached Out Early’ On Lorenzo Cain

Lorenzo Cain, free agent formerly of the Kansas City Royals, makes some sense as a player the Blue Jays might target. He’s a good defensive outfielder, with speed on the basepaths as well. Cain is primarily a centrefielder (though he played nearly a thousand innings in right field between 2012 and 2016), and a decent enough…

On Jay Bruce, His Demands, And An Offseason Reality Check

“Please don’t Jays.” And with that statement it became clear to me how fully broken our little game of off-season broken telephone has become. This comment, said earnestly, as far as I could tell, was about Jay Bruce, after I retweeted this utterly hilarious report from Jerry Crasnick last Wednesday evening: MLB teams that have…
