The Rotation Review, Vol. 4: Any worries yet?

In the first edition of The Rotation Review, I wrote about how the Jays would need good starting pitching if they wanted to contend because the offense isn’t going to carry this team. And here we are, through 21 games, sitting at 13-8. Except the rotation has been, as a whole, rather mediocre, and the…

The Lourdes Gurriel era begins!

The Blue Jays made a couple of roster moves today. One wasn’t a surprise, as Kendrys Morales was activated from the 10-day disabled list as had been reported a couple days ago, the other was a little out of left field, as Lourdes Gurriel was recalled from Double-A New Hampshire. Heading down to Triple-A Buffalo…
