According to the NHL, in the 1940s, a Toronto haberdasher used to give free hats to players with the Toronto Maple Leafs when they scored three goals in a game, which introduced the “Hat Trick” expression into the world of hockey. On Saturday afternoon Toronto Blue Jays designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion hit three home runs. […]

…Now That Paul Beeston Is Leaving It was either a single event or a string of events that occurred within the Toronto Blue Jays organization last year that effectively terminated the Paul Beeston fan club at Rogers Communications. There are some who believe that Beeston’s support for Tom Warner as Commissioner, opposed by ownership who […]

Blue Jays Move of Sanchez to Bullpen Means Market for Starters Greater than Closers

There is little doubt the Toronto Blue Jays will be acquiring an established pitcher or pitchers by the July 31 trade deadline. The only question was whether it would be a starter or a reliever—or both, but the move of Aaron Sanchez to the bullpen indicates that the Jays believe the trade market will be […]

Granted Marcus Stroman is no grey beard, not with only twenty major league starts under his belt, yet Stroman was being counted on to anchor this year’s Toronto Blue Jays pitching staff—and be a top of the rotation starter for many years to come. Now what? Stroman’s injury sent curdling waves of uncertainty and shivers […]

Blue Jays seek low-risk deals as they attempt to add needed experience

It would seem the Toronto Blue Jays did indeed have money to spend. The concern among followers entering spring training was that the organization had failed to address the club’s many existing holes but as spring training began the club looked in their favourite place, the bargain bin, for additions. The Blue Jays signed veteran […]

Blue Jays management seem willing to risk their jobs on unproven youngsters

I am officially throwing my hands in the air—not literally or I wouldn’t be able to write this piece, but I have no idea what the Toronto Blue Jays are doing. Management seem willing to risk their jobs on a slew of unproven youngsters in a year where the team absolutely must make the playoffs—or […]

Blue Jays have a slew of question marks but have payroll to spend heading into spring training

Last week newly signed (old) President and CEO Paul Beeston stated that the Toronto Blue Jays payroll would remain approximately the same in 2015 as it was last year—around $137 million. Including arbitration eligible players and rookie contacts the Blue Jays will be about $10 million short of that figure when spring training begins. Which […]

The headline was simple and succinct—the Toronto Blue Jays announce that Paul Beeston will remain as the club’s president and CEO for the 2015 season. The issue of course is that the announcement came months after it should have been made and after the organization went swimming with the sharks in muddy waters without swimsuits. […]
