By Kyle Matte

Devon Travis, Brett Lawrie, and (a lack of) Middle Infield Depth

By Kyle Matte

PUBLISHED: Mar 9, 2017, 9:57 am EST

I won’t hold your disdain for Brett Lawrie against you, but in light of John Gibbons’ comments on Tuesday morning it’s hard not to be more than a little concerned about the Toronto Blue Jays middle infield depth. “I expected him, to...

Patrick Corbin: Potential Andrew Miller Clone and Blue Jays Target

By Kyle Matte

PUBLISHED: Nov 10, 2016, 9:46 am EST

Ignore the modest save total of twelve: Andrew Miller was one of the best relievers in baseball during the 2016 regular season, and was the best reliever in baseball during the postseason. He was unquestionably the deciding factor in the Blue Jays...

By Kyle Matte

PUBLISHED: Nov 2, 2016, 7:20 am EDT

There’s more than one way to flex your financial muscle in the game of baseball. Shouldering out lesser bidders and landing the top free agents available in November is the standard by which most fans measure their team’s fiscal heft. However, as...

Solving Marcus Stroman’s Woes with Runners On

By Kyle Matte

PUBLISHED: Sep 14, 2016, 10:48 am EDT

Marcus Stroman has pitched parts of three seasons in his major league career, and one of the more interesting peculiarities to develop is his worse-than-expected run prevention ability. The fielding-independent metrics love him: over those three seasons, his 3.36 FIP ranks 25th among 127 starting pitchers to throw at least 300 innings, while his xFIP […]

Marco Estrada’s Changeup and its Place Among Royalty

By Kyle Matte

PUBLISHED: Aug 15, 2016, 7:12 am EDT

The changeup can be a devastating pitch with its doppelganger-like deception; and the Blue Jays’ Marco Estrada just so happens to feature one of the finest in all of baseball. Estrada’s style is the antithesis of baseball’s modern era, where a hurler’s panache is measured by how hard he can...

Josh Donaldson: The Draft Versus Development

By Kyle Matte

PUBLISHED: Jun 20, 2016, 7:20 am EDT

Josh Donaldson was a first round draft pick, and given that he was named the American League’s Most Valuable Player just eight short months ago, this probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise. With the draft, and prospects, and international signings transitioning from niche interest to national news over the last decade, these young […]
