The Overachieving Underachieving Blue Jays Juggernaut

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Aug 11, 2015, 2:36 pm EDT

As a counter to the idea that baseball is complicated and unpredictable: sometimes, baseball can seem ever so easy to understand. Not long ago, the Blue Jays traded for Troy Tulowitzki, perhaps or probably the very best shortstop. Shortly thereafter, the Jays also traded for David Price, easily one of the very best starting pitchers. […]

Ben Revere the Newest New Blue Jay

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jul 31, 2015, 3:48 pm EDT

This one isn’t yet officially official, but it seems on the verge: the Blue Jays are about to pick up Ben Revere from the Phillies. No word on the return, but for this: Ruben Amaro basically said another deal is coming w Phils getting A ball player back. — Jim Salisbury (@JSalisburyCSN) July 31, 2015 […]

The Tigers turned a David Price profit

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jul 31, 2015, 8:16 am EDT

This wasn't the ending the Tigers had in mind when they acquired David Price last July, but they still managed to get excellent value for the ace left-hander in their trade with the Blue Jays.

Rockies Choose to Embrace Their Future, At Last

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jul 28, 2015, 1:44 pm EDT

There’s no such thing as ideal circumstances under which to trade Troy Tulowitzki. The best-case scenario is that Tulowitzki is both healthy and performing well, and then, you’re still a front office trading one of the most talented players in baseball. And in Colorado, of course, Tulowitzki has been more than just a good player, […]

One Way for the Blue Jays to Go for It

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jul 16, 2015, 9:00 am EDT

The Blue Jays are a pretty good team. Sometimes they look like a very good team, and with an upgrade or two, they might get to that level consistently. There’s a decent shot this is the team that busts the extended franchise playoff slump, and with the trade deadline around the corner, you know the […]

The Blue Jays and Slugging Toward October

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Jun 15, 2015, 4:05 pm EDT

I think I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again: while most of us understand that the gambler’s fallacy is a fallacy, sometimes it’s easy to see why so many people believe in it. In the case of this post, take the Blue Jays. Through the season’s first two months, they had the third-worst […]

Devon Travis Wants to Be the Rookie of the Year

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Apr 28, 2015, 2:15 pm EDT

Let’s reflect on the FanGraphs staff predictions, shall we? Seems like a great idea for the 28th of April. Every single voter selected the Nationals to win the National League East. Okay, great start. Taijuan Walker got the most votes for the American League Rookie of the Year, and his ERA’s almost 7. Daniel Norris […]

One Week With Kevin Pillar

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Apr 16, 2015, 3:05 pm EDT

You’ve probably seen what Kevin Pillar did on Wednesday. On the off chance you haven’t, we’ll get to that later, at the right time. Let this much be said now: it was absolutely extraordinary. But it also wasn’t the first Pillar highlight of the season. The guy who was supposed to lose time to Michael […]

A Year Without Marcus Stroman

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Mar 10, 2015, 4:39 pm EDT

This time, at least, it’s a little different. Yu Darvish sustained an injury while pitching. Cliff Lee sustained an injury while pitching. Gavin Floyd, Masahiro Tanaka, Jose Fernandez, Matt Harvey, so many of the others — they sustained their injuries while pitching. Marcus Stroman sustained an injury while fielding. His throwing arm is completely fine. […]

Marcus Stroman’s Absurd Set of Pitch Comps

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Feb 13, 2015, 4:16 pm EST

Some weeks ago, I was tooling around on the Baseball Prospectus PITCHf/x leaderboards, and one thing led to another, and I noticed that Marcus Stroman had developed a sinker that looked and worked an awful lot like Roy Halladay‘s sinker. It was a pitch that just came to Stroman during the course of the 2014 […]
