By Dave Church

Published: Jun 22, 2016, 7:37 am EDT

Marcus Stroman’s struggles have drawn a considerable amount of attention from Jays fans. We’ve discussed the similarity of his breaking balls, suggested a change in approach, and already proposed that he will probably be fine. His last start against the Orioles may have been his worst of the season, leading to...

By Dave Church

Published: Jun 15, 2016, 10:10 pm EDT

After splitting a two-game set with the Phillies at the Rogers Centre, the Blue Jays came to Philadelphia and notched a 7-2 victory. Most of the runs were scored early, with the teams trading single runs in the second before the Jays took the lead later on. After some initial struggles, Marco Estrada settled in […]

Recap: Blue Jays 4, Orioles 3; Edwin’s Parrot Always Wins99999

By Dave Church

Published: Jun 10, 2016, 10:20 pm EDT

Another close game had the potential for heartbreak, but the Jays hung off for a walk-off win in extra innings as they defeated the Orioles 4-3. Though the Jays struck early, Gausman limited the damage in the first, and managed to keep the Jays from mounting rallies throughout the evening. Though the Jays got eight […]

Backup Plan: Examining the Jays’ Bench99999

By Dave Church

Published: Jun 8, 2016, 6:48 am EDT

The Blue Jays’ bench isn’t great. To anyone who’s watched the team the last couple of years, this is not a shock. With a lot of money invested in high-end players, the Jays have generally bargain-hunted and worked the edges, taking chances on Quad-A players and filling the empty spaces...

Recap: Jays 7, Red Sox 5; Donaldson Gets It Done99999

By Dave Church

Published: May 27, 2016, 10:04 pm EDT

Jose Bautista’s suspension didn’t matter, as another visit from old friend Joe Kelly had the Jays’ hitters in good spirits: they struck early and traded runs with the Red Sox before holding on for a 7-5 victory. Kelly was his usual inconsistent self, which the Jays took advantage of, getting nine hits and...

Evaluating Jesse Chavez With Something New99999

By Dave Church

Published: May 26, 2016, 9:18 am EDT

A lot of bandwidth has been used on this site talking about the Jays’ bullpen struggles this season. Recent articles have found some good amidst the Jays’ relief core, which has been somewhere between a combustible gas can and a roaring tire fire so far this season. Save for Roberto Osuna, who...

Recap: Rays 12, Jays 2; Rinse and Almost Repeat99999

By Dave Church

Published: May 17, 2016, 9:55 pm EDT

After yesterday’s shellacking, the Jays were probably more optimistic about today’s game, with presumptive ace Marcus Stroman taking the hill. They were also facing Chris Archer, who the Jays have usually had some success against. But they weren’t able to come through tonight, losing to the Rays by a score...

Why Josh Thole Makes Some Sense For The Blue Jays99999

By Dave Church

Published: May 10, 2016, 9:46 am EDT

It’s beyond difficult to defend the performance of Josh Thole so far this year. He has one job, and has barely been doing that. Even so, talk among Jays fans of upgrading at backup catcher in the off-season was, to my mind, a waste of breath; as long as R.A. Dickey remained on the roster, […]

The Blue Jays had their first trip to a National League park this season on Monday night and came away victorious, beating the San Francisco Giants 3-1. Jake Peavy, who had scuffled to start the season, was not especially sharp in this outing either, laboring through five innings, allowing five hits and five walks. The Jays, […]
