Maybe It’s Time for a Blue Jays Managerial Shake Up

By Gideon Turk

Published: Apr 28, 2016, 10:47 am EDT

I’ve defended John Gibbons for a while. I’m of the opinion that some managers are bad at their jobs, some are extraordinary, but most are just there – not having a huge impact on their teams either way. Until this season, I’ve put Gibbons into that last category. He did some things well, and some...

Recap: Orioles 3, Blue Jays 2; The Offense Took the Early Flight Home

By Gideon Turk

Published: Apr 21, 2016, 10:37 pm EDT

What a terrible series and game for the Blue Jays. Things started out looking great, with a 1-0 lead after the first two batters of the game. However, the Blue Jays wound up only scoring two runs in the first inning, and did nothing after that. As easy as it is to blame John Gibbons for […]

Recap: Blue Jays 4, Red Sox 3; Better Late Than Never

By Gideon Turk

They almost blew it, but luckily Drew Storen was able to lock this game down by getting David Ortiz to strikeout looking in the ninth inning. As a result, the Blue Jays came away with a 4-3 victory and a split of the four game series. After a pitcher’s duel between Clay Buchholz and J.A. Happ […]

By Gideon Turk

Published: Apr 11, 2016, 9:36 am EDT

With so much of the focus on baseball shifting to the statistical side in recent years, early season anomalies can get a lot of undeserved attention. Players can get lucky and can ride that luck to sky high batting averages or micro-ERA’s. However, eventually, as the sample grows, the good luck tends to balance out […]

Recap: Blue Jays 5, Rays 3; Stroman Dominates While Tulo Homers

By Gideon Turk

Published: Apr 3, 2016, 7:10 pm EDT

Well that was fun, eh? From the get go, the Blue Jays made this an entertaining game to watch. Before Chris Archer could get settled down, the offense made him throw 34 pitches in the first inning and with Marcus Stroman on the mound, the two runs they scored was almost enough for the entire […]
