Just Called Up, Adeiny Hechavarria Plays 3B?

Details By Mat Germain

Published: Aug 5, 2012, 1:34 pm EDT

There are certain decisions that teams and managers make that make you shake your head some times. It seems to me that for the second time since he’s been a Blue Jays player, Adeiny Hechavarria has been set up for failure by this organization. With little regard for how his mental state of mind, they’ve ...

Jays Journal Triple Poll: Trade Deadline and August Trades

Details By Mat Germain

Published: Aug 3, 2012, 7:58 am EDT

It’s not easy to ignore the slide the Jays are currently experiencing, but for today, I really don’t feel like getting into it. So, I decided instead to ask all of you what your opinions are on a few applicable subjects. The first being the Jays activity around the trade deadline, the second being whether ...

West Coast Roast: Jays Burned by Mariners and Eric Thames

Details By Mat Germain

Published: Aug 2, 2012, 8:40 am EDT

If anyone had any expectation of the Jays pulling themselves a little closer to a wild card spot while they took care of business against the Seattle Mariners, they were just flat out wrong. That was also my expectation, so I stand corrected along with you! The Jays were playing in a stadium that had ...

Jays Trade Analysis: LF Eric Thames for RP Steve Delabar

Details By Mat Germain

Published: Jul 31, 2012, 5:16 pm EDT

When Jared and I completed the Top 50 Jays Prospect list pre-2011, we listed Eric Thames as the 15th best Jays prospect, right after Noah Syndergaard (14) and right before Drew Hutchison (16). Jared got the call to do the writeup on Thames, and it lets you know a very detailed background of where he ...

Jays Make Couple of Controversial Moves

Details By Mat Germain

Published: Jul 31, 2012, 8:34 am EDT

If Alex Anthopoulos was trying to get the attention of Toronto’s fan base, he definitely succeeded yesterday when he dealt fan favourite Travis Snider to Pittsburgh in return for RHP Brad Lincoln, and then followed that up by dealing Eric Thames to Seattle in return for RHP Steve Delabar. To say that both deals took ...

Will the Jays Extend Carlos Villanueva?

Details By Mat Germain

Published: Jul 30, 2012, 10:43 pm EDT

There have been many surprising performances from the Jays as a whole this season. I don’t think anyone expected Edwin Encarnacion to become the power house he is, and I doubt anyone guessed that Aaron Laffey would become a very important piece of the rotation for a good chunk of the season. But, if there’s ...

Jays Budget Issues: Will Attendance and Viewer Trends Affect Future Deals?

Details By Mat Germain

Published: Jul 28, 2012, 9:37 am EDT

Before you read this article, I strongly recommend that you take a peak at this article written by Dustin Parkes in February of this year: “How The Blue Jays Didn’t Drop The Ball“. He does a great job of explaining many aspects of the T.V. rights issues the Jays deal with, and spells out how ...

Jays Journal Features: The Yunel Escobar Rumours

Details By Mat Germain

Published: Jul 27, 2012, 8:48 am EDT

It’s a little ironic that Yunel Escobar was acquired, along with Jo-Jo Reyes, in return for SS Alex Gonzalez, RP Tim Collins (now with KC) and Tyler Pastornicky, a fellow SS who is beloved in the locker room and is noted for having players pull for him to do well. It’s ironic because the exact ...

Jays Should Acquire Josh Johnson if Price is Right

Details By Mat Germain

Published: Jul 26, 2012, 9:49 pm EDT

It wasn’t long ago that I witnessed the swiftness and thoroughness of a Jeffrey Loria fire sale as I cheered for both the Expos and Jays at the time. I’ve written many articles about the shrewd moves that gave him control over the Marlins at a cost which was a fraction of what they are ...

Jays Redeem Themselves as Tough Series With A’s Ends

Details By Mat Germain

Published: Jul 26, 2012, 4:09 pm EDT

With just over 39,000 fans piling into Rogers Centre, the Jays did not disappoint. They managed to score double digits in the last game of the series after being shut down for the majority of the first 2 games. Overall, the A’s series drew just over 87,000 fans, or an average of approximately 29,000 per ...
