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

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 Jays

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, […]

Recap: Blue Jays 3, Giants 1; Sanchez’s Solid Start Salvages Still Sputtering Sluggers

By Dave Church

Published: May 10, 2016, 1:18 am EDT

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, […]

Recap: Blue Jays 3, Rangers 1; Smoak Bombs Rangers Twice

By Dave Church

Published: May 3, 2016, 10:55 pm EDT

The Rangers/Jays series thus far has been a low-scoring affair, something no one would have predicted given the history between these two teams. Though for most of the game it was looking like it was going to be another heartbreaking loss for the Jays, they tied it up late in the ninth and walked it off […]

Recap: White Sox 7, Blue Jays 5; The Bullpen Coughs it Up Again

Though the Jays got to the White Sox early, their late inning woes returned, as the bullpen hacked up a four-run lead in their 7-5 loss to the White Sox. The Jays did get to Miguel Gonzalez quickly, notching multiple runs in the first and third innings. The White Sox starter wasn’t fooling the Jays, as […]

Buying A Bullpen: How Do The Jays Compare?

By Dave Church

Published: Apr 19, 2016, 6:15 am EDT

It’s a common refrain of the sabermetrically inclined that you shouldn’t spend money on bullpens. It’s easy to see why this is: a pitcher that can throw 180-200 innings in a season (a starter) will usually be more valuable than someone whose peak is around 70 innings (a reliever). Even accounting for leverage and situations, the best […]

Recap: Red Sox 4, Jays 2; Token David Price Pun

By Dave Church

Published: Apr 16, 2016, 7:02 pm EDT

Reunions can be bittersweet, can’t they? The Jays faced last year’s trade deadline acquisition David Price, and ended up losing. The Red Sox’ new ace was excellent, starting to earn that big money contract they lavished on him in the off-season. He struck out eight over seven solid innings, with just two earned...
