Game Threat: Momentum? Blue Jays (4-12) @ Angels (7-11)

Did you stay up and watch last night’s marathon? The Blue Jays sure as hell made it worth your while if you did. After blowing a lead in the eighth inning, Jose Bautista came up clutch with his first home run of the season in the top of the 13th, then Joe Biagini bailed out…

Blue Jays @ Angels Series Preview: Expect Fireworks

With Aaron Sanchez and J.A. Happ on the shelf, the Blue Jays have had to dig deep for pitching help. Fortunately for them, the Angels rotation at the best of times is a blindfolded man riding a unicycle across a tightrope as Mike Trout watches helplessly. Maybe we’ll see some fireworks this weekend!

Series Recap: Heartbreak Ball

The Jays badly needed to have a big series against the Red Sox this week. They almost did. I mean, they got hitting, great starting pitching, and strong relief. Unfortunately, it wasn’t at the same time, and they also got bad starting pitching, dismal hitting, and disastrous relief. It was close to being very good. But…

Red Sox 4 – Blue Jays 1: A Tale of Three Losses

i. The Jays had essentially lost Thursday’s game with the Red Sox before they even took the field. That’s not really how we should look at it, and I’m sure that’s not how the players looked at it. But Chris Sale was on the hill for the Red Sox, and there are few pitchers in the…

The Ballad of Sad David Price

David Price looked sad on Wednesday night. Sad as his name in fading sidewalk paint, which remains to this day outside the Rogers Centre, according to a tweet from Tim Britton of the Providence Journal. The Sportsnet broadcast camera lingered on the man who was so adored here in the fall of 2015 a couple…
