Troy Tulowitzki Joins Star Filled Toronto Blue Jays Lineup

Details By Mat Germain

Published: Jul 28, 2015, 10:09 am EDT

The Jays just got a true leader, a top 20-30 MLB player, and traded away a declining older defensively challenged SS. BUT, we also have to remember that the positive energy Jose Reyes brought to the team was also excellent, was an embraced part of the team, and that he...

Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos and his Draft Gurus

Details By Mat Germain

Published: Apr 12, 2015, 3:19 pm EDT

Although I applaud the aggressive moves that were made as a fan that wants to see the Jays win now, I can also understand how all of these deals would frustrate a scouting department that was hoping to see waves of talent travel through Toronto's system in very much the...

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 ...
