It’s Buehrle Believable … Now Jays Must Move On

If there’s a social media equivalent of a benches-emptying plunker, then John Gibbons’ decision to start Mark Buehrle on Sunday, and the ensuing carnage, was it. Contributors thundered in from all directions to have a dust-up on Twitter’s virtual pitchers’ mound, as the manager’s decision to go with heart over head was laid waste in […]

Of course it had to be Josh Donaldson. As Sunday’s game against the Rays meandered sluggishly to a finale, it seemed as though a crowd thoroughly unaccustomed to meaningful baseball at this time of year had fallen back into default mode: consume mountains of food, lakes of beer, and have a nice afternoon in the […]

Whistle while you work* As if there was not enough to talk about, the Toronto Star has revealed the apparent reason why Jose Bautista won’t talk to those nasty people at Sportsnet.

What a delight it’s been to see the Blue Jays bats wreak havoc with the Los Angeles Angels’ pitching over the three game series. The contrast between two teams, in theory still each other’s closest rival for a wild card spot as the series opened, could not have been greater. The lone blip of one […]

Blue Jays Get Serious with Tulowitzki Trade

One of the rare advantages of being a UK-based Jays fan, five hours ahead of Toronto time, was that I awoke to news of the Reyes-Tulowitzki trade while whispers about this blockbuster swap deal were still only beginning to filter out. In some ways it’s almost unfathomable to imagine a Jays line-up without Jose topping […]
