By Matt W

PUBLISHED: Apr 19, 2016, 10:48 pm EDT

Blue Jays 4 Orioles 3 Marcus Stroman turned in a solid seven inning start against the Orioles Tuesday night, doing just enough to pick up the win in allowing three runs. For large stretches of the outing, he was dominant and in complete control, interrupted by home runs in the...

The Blue Jays are responsible for 25% of baseball's increased strikeouts in 2016

By Matt W

PUBLISHED: Apr 19, 2016, 8:14 am EDT

The Blue Jays have struck out a lot to begin 2016. Coming into Monday's game, they led baseball with a 28.6% strikeout rate, with almost starter well above their career rates and projections save Kevin Pillar and Darwin Barney (who has all of 16 plate appearances). Last year the Jays...

Conner Greene debuts in Dunedin, and other notes

By Matt W

PUBLISHED: Apr 8, 2016, 8:40 am EDT

Thursday was ostensibly Opening Day for minor league baseball, but across the Blue Jays system the anticipation was mostly for not as Buffalo was rained out in Pawtucket, New Hampshire rained out in Binghamton, and Lansing was snowed out at home. There's a certain irony that after the mildest winter...

Some thoughts on Aaron Sanchez last night

By Matt W

PUBLISHED: Apr 6, 2016, 9:10 am EDT

At the beginning of last night's game, I commented that whether Aaron Sanchez dominated or was terrible in his 2016 debut, it was just one start. That is, one start in baseball is never definitive for a pitcher, and particularly so for young pitchers. His line for the night - seven...

Not the Wright ending: Jays fall 4-2 to Red Sox in 10 innings

By Matt W

PUBLISHED: Apr 1, 2016, 11:03 pm EDT

Red Sox 4 Blue Jays 2 The MLB powers-that-be apparently don't think that 19 games against division opponents enough, so tonight the Red Sox came to Montreal for this third annual preseason series. The Blue Jays jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, but the joke was on them in...

Jays win sloppy spring game 7-3 over Rays

By Matt W

PUBLISHED: Mar 27, 2016, 4:57 pm EDT

Blue Jays 7 Rays 3 Here's the very short recap of today's game: In hindsight, maybe Sportsnet was smart to air the Yankees game instead of this one, ugly as it was. Officially, there were a combined seven errors, though that should easily have been into double digits had the...

Is optioning Marco Estrada an option?

By Matt W

PUBLISHED: Mar 22, 2016, 10:45 am EDT

On Sunday, Marco Estrada made his official spring training debut, throwing 45 pitches across two-plus innings. This after throwing 35 pitches in a simulated start the weekend before and throwing two innings in a minor league game last Tuesday. With less than two weeks of preseason games left, Estrada will...
