West Coast baseball is always weird for the Blue Jays. Whenever the clock strikes 12:00am in the Eastern time zone and the Jays are on the road, strange things start to happen. Like any well-intentioned Blue Jays fan, I settled in on Friday night for some late night baseball with the aim of watching the entire game. I lasted about 90 minutes before falling asleep. But luckily, I...

Very few fans have been showing up to Tampa Bay Rays games this season, but the ones who do are creating one heck of a home field advantage for their team.In their 8-7 loss to Tampa on Wednesday, the Detroit Tigers allowed two very catchable fly balls to fall between them in the outfield during the game’s first three innings. Both happened when second baseman Ian Kinsler ranged...
Written by Matt Gwin and Dave Church The Blue Jays Rotation “Depth” is Here Entering the season, FanGraphs ranked the Blue Jays starting rotation 16th best in all of baseball. This was a topic of much discussion, so striking that a reporter asked John Gibbons about it at a presser during Spring Training. His response? While dismissive, Gibbons’ response was largely justified...

The Toronto Blue Jays followed up their rough first week of the season with an equally bad second week. The Jays once again went 1-5 to fall to 2-10 on the year. There is still 150 games left on the season, but anyone can see that the Jays are not playing well. On top of that, there was even more bad news as Aaron Sanchez and Josh Donaldson were put on the 10 day DL and JA...
The Toronto Blue Jays have been dreadful all season. The Jays were tabbed as postseason contenders to start the season, and they have looked like bottom feeders of the American League. Things almost got really bad last night, as Roberto Osuna blew the save in the top of the ninth, but luckily for him and the Jays, Kendrys Morales blasted a walk off home run to seal the victory. There...
It’s no secret that the Toronto Blue Jays are struggling so far this season. Coming into Saturday, the Jays were 1-9 and had lost seven in a row. It took a Kendrys Morales walk-off home run to overcome a blown save by recently returned closer Roberto Osuna, just to win game number two. It’s not like they are getting blown out consistently. On the contrary, they are in...
Video games are more and more realistic. Gone are the days of 8-bit video games (especially now that Nintendo discontinued it) and now we have games that eerily look real life.For Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez, he’s not only on the Canadian cover of MLB The Show but he’s a serious gamer. MLB The Show is so realistic that Sanchez uses it to study opponents to help himself...
Here’s something fantasy owners and fans were dreading.Toronto Blue Jays MVP third baseman Josh Donaldson will more than likely be placed on the disabled list following a recurring injury in his calf. He has been dealing with the injury since last weekend and strained it once again Thursday night after rounding first base and began limping towards second.At the moment, it doesn’t...
Between the Griffeys, Boones, Alous, and Bonds to name a few, baseball has long been a sport where family lines have found success. Could the Tulowitzki family be the next to join the crowd?Troy Tulowitzki has a 3-year-old son Taz who looks pretty awesome given his age.Take a look at this clip shared by SportsNet Canada of Taz taking some swings at Rogers Centre: That’s a pretty...
Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson left Sunday’s game versus the Tampa Bay Rays with a calf injury. The Blue Jays have said that Donaldson should be available for Tuesday’s game. One thing is for certain; it’s not good news for a Blue Jays team that has struggled during the first week of the 2017 season with Donaldson being one of the lone bright spots. The 31-year old has...

The Toronto Blue Jays elected to release outfielder Melvin Upton Jr., and it doesn’t sound like there’s a lot of immediate interest in his services.The Detroit Tigers are one team who could see the need for another outfielder, and while general manager Al Avila said the team would look into Upton, it doesn’t sound like they’re going to push hard for him. Another team short...
Just a day before the 2017 MLB regular season kicks off, the Toronto Blue Jays have announced that manager John Gibbons has agreed to a two-year extension with a team option for the 2020 season. In no way should it come as a surprise that Toronto would want to extend Gibbons. He’s led the Jays to the American League Championship Series in each of the past two seasons, posting a...
Paul Sporer and I were responsible for providing the starting-rotation installments of last week’s positional power rankings, posts which you can access here and here. One of the interesting things I took from the exercise was the absence of the Toronto Blue Jays from the top 15 of those rankings. Blue Jays starters led the American League in ERA (3.64) last season. If you prefer...
