Reviewing Stroman’s MVP Performance

By Elie Waitzer

PUBLISHED: Mar 23, 2017, 11:28 am EDT

Shouldering a championship trophy half his size, last night’s starter for Team USA contained his grin under the bright lights of Dodger Stadium as he soaked in his new title. Marcus Stroman, World Baseball Classic MVP. That’ll look really nice on the...

The Fly Ball Revolution Has Arrived in Toronto

By Elie Waitzer

PUBLISHED: Mar 17, 2017, 6:04 am EDT

2016 was an odd year for home runs; they went up by 14% between 2015 and 2016. The last time we saw so many home runs was in 2000, when the home run leaderboard looked like this. When this historic spike began...

John Gibbons Is a Modern Day Bobby Cox

By Elie Waitzer

PUBLISHED: Mar 3, 2017, 6:14 am EST

Last Canada Day, John Gibbons was ejected for arguing a called strike with home plate umpire Vic Carapazza. It was his sixth ejection of the season, which wouldn’t be all that remarkable except for the fact that the season wasn’t even halfway...

Kendrys Morales Versus the Shift

By Elie Waitzer

PUBLISHED: Feb 3, 2017, 9:00 am EST

The most frequent target of a defensive shift is a slow-footed, pull-happy slugger. Think David Ortiz, Albert Pujols, and Prince Fielder. Since his power breakout in 2012, Edwin Encarnacion has faced more shifts every season. Encarnacion was shifted in 36 percent of his...

Kendrys Morales’ Breaking Ball Breakout

By Elie Waitzer

PUBLISHED: Dec 6, 2016, 7:57 am EST

One of the main knocks on last year’s Blue Jays lineup was its lack of balance. Plenty of power, but no speed, no versatility, and little situational ability. This was sharply contrasted in the ALCS against a Cleveland team that was one...

The Blue Jays’ Most Suprising Heroic Moments of 2016

By Elie Waitzer

PUBLISHED: Nov 1, 2016, 6:01 am EDT

Everybody loves a Josh Donaldson walk-off. The anticipation as he rocks his front heel up and down, and the violent swing in which you have more faith than most things in your life. Then maybe you turn to your buddy, shake your...

ALCS Game 3 Recap: Cleveland 4, Blue Jays 2; Toronto Bleeds Out Slowly

By Elie Waitzer

PUBLISHED: Oct 17, 2016, 11:49 pm EDT

Injury chased their starter early, but Cleveland’s bullpen continued to have an answer for every Jays threat. Toronto would never take the lead, falling 4-2 in the game and are now down 3-0 in the series. Cleveland drew first blood on a Mike Napoli double, but Toronto lashed back in the bottom of the 1st. After […]

Melvin Upton Jr. Solved Half of One Problem

By Elie Waitzer

PUBLISHED: Sep 30, 2016, 10:35 am EDT

When the Jays traded for Melvin Upton Jr. at the deadline, they knew what they were getting into: great speed, good defence, some power, and a ton of whiffs. All the whiffs. The defence and speed were put on display from the get go, but the whiffs were beyond what anybody could have expected. Through […]

Game Recap: Blue Jays 3, Yankees 0; Bautista Delivers

By Elie Waitzer

PUBLISHED: Sep 24, 2016, 7:06 pm EDT

The heart of the order, the Donaldson-Encarnacion-Bautista combo that’s supposed to strike fear in the trembling hearts of the league’s poor pitchers, hasn’t been quite right for the past few months. Guys like Devon Travis and Russell Martin have carried the team through stretches, and the core three have gotten...
