Jose Bautista And The Blue Jays Needed Each Other More Than They Were Willing To Admit

By Barry Petchesky

PUBLISHED: Jan 18, 2017, 9:02 am EST

In the end, both sides miscalculated. Jose Bautista misread the market for power hitters, and had to settle for what Toronto was offering. The Blue Jays mishandled the slugger they really wanted, and had to settle for the 36-year-old Bautista. It’s not...

Report: Orioles Tell Free Agent Jose Bautista Their Fans Hate Him

By Barry Petchesky

PUBLISHED: Dec 7, 2016, 10:20 am EST

This isn’t the greatest free agent pool, but there are still some sluggers on the board. One of those—though not as marquee a name as he was, say, 12 months ago, is outfielder Jose Bautista. And one of the teams looking for...

Blue Jays Play-By-Play Guy Won't Call Cleveland's Team "Indians"

By Barry Petchesky

PUBLISHED: Oct 11, 2016, 3:54 pm EDT

It is news to me that Jerry Howarth, the radio play-by-play voice of the Blue Jays since 1981, does not use the name “Indians” when calling baseball games out of respect to Native people. But it’s not new news—Howarth has observed this practice for more than 20 years.

The Beer-Throwing Blue Jays Fan Got Away

By Barry Petchesky

PUBLISHED: Oct 5, 2016, 9:29 am EDT

There’s a pattern here. Four years ago at the Rogers Centre someone nailed an umpire with a beer. Three years ago a fan chucked a full beer can at the Orioles’ Nate McLouth. In last year’s ALDS, the crowd protested a bizarre play by littering the field with trash, a...

Beef! We've Got Yankees-Blue Jays Beef!

By Barry Petchesky

PUBLISHED: Sep 27, 2016, 10:38 am EDT

The Blue Jays appear comfortably in the playoffs, and the Yankees solidly out, so why not devote a late September divisional game almost entirely to beefing, and the settling of said beefs, and to setting up beefs to come?

Blue Jays Call Rangers "Gutless" And "Cowardly" After Excellent Brawl

By Barry Petchesky

PUBLISHED: May 16, 2016, 9:20 am EDT

I believe with my whole heart that the seventh inning of last year’s ALDS Game 5—the non-interference throw back to the pitcher, the baby-soaking beer rain , Elvis Andrus’s meltdown , and ohmygod that bat flip—is the most entertaining inning of baseball ever played. That seven months later it is...

By Barry Petchesky

PUBLISHED: Mar 14, 2016, 10:55 am EDT

Back when it was clear that Jose Bautista and the Blue Jays were far apart on a potential contract extension , a number of fans sided with their slugger and against ownership, which despite being among the richest in pro sports has a reputation for failing to spend like it....

Should The Blue Jays Have Tried To Keep David Price?

By Barry Petchesky

PUBLISHED: Dec 3, 2015, 10:55 am EST

The Red Sox signed David Price to a massive seven-year, $217 million contract. We soon learned that the Cardinals were in second, more than $30 million behind. And the Blue Jays, who said all the right things about hoping to keep their lefty ace who, acquired at the trade deadline,...

GM Alex Anthopoulos Shockingly Leaves The Blue Jays, Who Might Be Getting Cheap 

By Barry Petchesky

PUBLISHED: Oct 29, 2015, 9:29 am EDT

GM Alex Anthopoulos, under whose six-year tenure the Blue Jays emerged as one of the best teams in the AL, will not return to Toronto, reportedly over philosophical disagreements over how he built a winner, and concerns that his power over baseball operations would be severely curtailed under a new team president.

The Blue Jays Won't Sell Beer Cans In The Upper Deck

By Barry Petchesky

PUBLISHED: Oct 19, 2015, 12:50 pm EDT

Tonight will be the first game back at the Rogers Centre since Toronto’s bananas Game 5 win over the Rangers, which included a beerstorm interlude after a disputed call. That’s not likely to happen again, and the Blue Jays are going to make extra-sure: they’re banning cans of beer in the cheap seats.
