The Worst Called Ball On Record100

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Sep 24, 2016, 2:48 pm EDT

Last Monday, in what was a pretty critical game against the Mariners, Josh Donaldson got ejected in the seventh inning. Officially, he was ejected for arguing balls and strikes, but, unofficially, he was ejected for being a jerk. During his seventh inning at-bat, Donaldson tried to check a swing, and he disagreed with the determination […]

The Red Sox Are Basically Last Year’s Blue Jays99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Sep 20, 2016, 5:00 pm EDT

Last year’s Blue Jays didn’t win the World Series. They probably could’ve, though — they were absolutely good enough. They certainly gave the Royals fits. And the Blue Jays appealed to me in particular because I’m a little bit of a contrarian, and the Blue Jays could hit the crap...

Gary Sanchez Is No Jesus Montero99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Aug 24, 2016, 3:19 pm EDT

Jesus Montero is still just 26 years old, and he’s having a pretty decent season at the plate. He’s batting over .300, and he has his OBP close to .350 and his slugging percentage close to .450. All things considered, that’s not a bad campaign. But for the fact that Montero has spent the summer […]

Michael Saunders Has Helped or Killed the Blue Jays99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Aug 17, 2016, 3:44 pm EDT

It’s been a big season for Michael Saunders, and for his career. He’s long been dogged by injury questions, and a season ago he was limited to just nine games played. For 2016 he’s been able to stay on the field, and his bat has done the talking. He’s been...

What Did the Blue Jays Do to Ezequiel Carrera?99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jul 14, 2016, 9:00 am EDT

Not too long ago, I wrote about how the Blue Jays have gotten back to hitting the snot out of the ball. That shouldn’t be too surprising — a year ago, the Blue Jays hit the snot out of the ball. There was something in there, though, I’ve had trouble shaking. I included it as […]

The Blue Jays Are Smashing People Again99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jul 6, 2016, 4:33 pm EDT

One season ago, the Blue Jays had one of the stronger team offenses in baseball’s recent history. Going into this season, not too much stood to change. So throughout the winter, the talk was about what the Jays could do to strengthen the starting rotation. It would be fair to say that, when the Jays […]

Matt Carpenter Is Going Full Jose Bautista99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jun 27, 2016, 5:34 pm EDT

As you might remember from last year, Matt Carpenter turned himself into a different kind of hitter. He’d already been wonderfully productive, but last year, he seemingly made the decision to exchange some contact for power. So while Carpenter soared to a career-high ISO, with a career-low rate of grounders, he also notched a career-high […]

Michael Saunders Has Been the Blue Jays’ Best Hitter99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jun 21, 2016, 5:59 pm EDT

Josh Donaldson is a superstar. There’s not really any agreed-upon definition of what a superstar is or isn’t, but there are certain obvious candidates, and Donaldson is among them. He hasn’t been the Blue Jays’ best hitter. Jose Bautista is probably also a superstar. He’s aging, sure, but he’s terrifying....

Aaron Sanchez Is Looking Like an Ace99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jun 8, 2016, 4:18 pm EDT

It’s probably no secret that, when the Blue Jays decided to try Aaron Sanchez as a starter, we were skeptics. It was nothing against Sanchez personally; from my perspective, at least, it was really quite simple. As a starter in the past, Sanchez never threw enough strikes. Big velocity and everything, but, not enough strikes. […]

Russell Martin Ain’t Right99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: May 17, 2016, 4:19 pm EDT

News broke earlier that the Pirates agreed to a three-year contract extension with Francisco Cervelli. It’s an easy enough story to analyze in isolation, but to really add depth, you can compare and contrast Cervelli and Russell Martin, who was Cervelli’s predecessor. When Martin left the Pirates, it seemed like it ought to have delivered […]
