José Bautista Knows Exactly How Much He's Worth

By Kevin Draper

PUBLISHED: Feb 22, 2016, 9:32 pm EST

After a breakout 2010 season at the ripe age of 29, the Toronto Blue Jays signed José Bautista to a five-year, $65-million contract, with a team option for a sixth year. By any standard, Bautista—who has been named an All-Star for six straight seasons—has dramatically outplayed his contract. To give...

The Blue Jays' Pitching Was So Bad They Had A Position Player Take The Mound

By Kevin Draper

PUBLISHED: Oct 20, 2015, 8:24 pm EDT

Here is how ugly things were for the Blue Jays tonight: Cliff Pennington, the Jays’ utility infielder, came in to pitch in the ninth. According to Elias he became the first exclusive position player to pitch in the postseason, and it went about as well as expected. In one-third of...

The Blue Jays Bludgeoned the Royals In Just Two Innings

By Kevin Draper

PUBLISHED: Oct 19, 2015, 11:48 pm EDT

The Royals traded for Johnny Cueto to be their postseason ace, and in the deciding Game 5 of the ALDS he was exactly that, giving up just two runs across eight innings in the 7-2 victory. The Royals didn’t need Cueto to be that good tonight, but they did need...

Unsurprisingly, The Rangers Have Thoughts On Bat Flips

By Kevin Draper

PUBLISHED: Oct 14, 2015, 10:27 pm EDT

You knew it was coming. As soon as Jose Bautista flipped his bat halfway to China like he was the baddest man alive—because he had just hit a three-run homer and because he WAS the baddest man alive—you knew the Rangers would have some takes.

The Blue Jays Partied Extremely Hard After Winning The AL East 

By Kevin Draper

PUBLISHED: Oct 1, 2015, 12:05 am EDT

Even by the standard of normally raucous division-clinching celebrations, the Blue Jays went a little crazy tonight after beating the Orioles 15-2 in Baltimore. I guess that’s what you do when you haven’t won a division title or even been to the playoffs in 23 years.

Jose Bautista Has A Goddamn Cannon Attached To His Shoulder

By Kevin Draper

PUBLISHED: Sep 23, 2015, 9:05 am EDT

Jose Bautista spent a month earlier this season playing DH because his shoulder hurt so badly that he couldn’t throw. After tonight, it’s safe to say Bautista is fully recovered.

It's A Joy To Watch Josh Donaldson Tag Up

By Kevin Draper

PUBLISHED: Sep 2, 2015, 11:00 pm EDT

Josh Donaldson probably shouldn’t have tried tagging up here. This ball was hit to extremely shallow center field, and a good throw (or a momentum-aided one from one of the outfielders) probably nails him. But he decided to run, and instead we get to see one of the better tag-avoiding slides you’ll ever see.

Russell Martin Chases Pop-Up Over Dugout Railing, Almost Eats It

By Kevin Draper

PUBLISHED: Aug 11, 2015, 9:46 pm EDT

Russell, my man. Your team is on an eight-game winning streak, it’s the first inning, and you’re playing against the sadsack A’s. Don’t throw it all away getting injured trying to catch a foul ball!

Are The Blue Jays Gonna Do It? 

By Kevin Draper

PUBLISHED: Aug 8, 2015, 12:28 pm EDT

Since they traded for Troy Tulowitzki just 10 days ago, the Toronto Blue Jays have surged into the final wild card spot and halved their deficit to the Yankees in the AL East. Friday kicked off a crucial weekend series between the two teams, the first of 13 games they’ll...
