#455178132 / gettyimages.com No point in burying the lede. The Blue Jays aren't in the playoffs (though they're still mathematically alive) because they other teams are better. Or they're not good enough. One of those two things. It isn't for a lack of trying and it isn't by a lot, but wins...

It is September 10th and the Toronto Blue Jays season is not technically dead. The contact high from "not technically dead" is enough to make a very green fanbase going full "post this salvia trip on Youtube!" up and down Blue Jays Way. "Not technically dead" is all we can ever really...

Colby Rasmus, Enigma

Details By Drew Fairservice

Published: Aug 27, 2014, 9:00 am EDT

The Toronto Blue Jays season is a two-part story. What began as a pleasant surprise quickly descended into a lucid, waking nightmare. Two Blue Jays’ outfielders heading into free agency embody each of those characteristics. While Melky Cabrera is putting together a brilliant platform season before heading to free-agency, Colby Rasmus seems to have spent all […]

It is not yet August so it is not yet a pennant race, but the Toronto Blue Jays are in a situation they haven't been for a long time - they matter. Their games matter, dripping with primordial playoff implications as they do. Given the AL East warzone, these future implications are...

What Marcus Stroman learned from the worst start of his career

Details By Drew Fairservice

Published: Jun 25, 2014, 2:59 pm EDT

Marcus Stroman wasn’t supposed to be here, starting games against the New York Yankees. The 2012 first round pick of the Toronto Blue Jays was a reliever in college. He was too short to hack it as a big league starter.
