Troy Tulowitzki, Travis Shaw, and attention to the defensive side

By Peter Gammons

Published: Apr 16, 2016, 5:55 pm EDT

Less than a 16th of the season had passed Friday night, and Troy Tulowitzki was hitting .139. “I don’t care,” said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons, if he doesn’t get another hit all season. His defense is that good. “Of course,” laughed Gibbons, “he will get another hit.” A week and a half of a […]

Published: Mar 24, 2016, 6:09 pm EDT

There is 2016, when the Toronto Blue Jays can—and really need to—go back to the world series.

One day Jose Bautista is sparring with the media about reports of his contract demands, which he believes to have been leaked by the Rogers ownership to make a 35 year old man that was claimed to have wanted five years and $150M and colored as greedy. At the end of that day, a veteran...

Anthopolous was simply uncomfortable with situation in Toronto

By Peter Gammons

Published: Oct 29, 2015, 2:04 pm EDT

It wasn’t the money. Alex Anthopolous had been thinking this out since the Blue Jays were eliminated by the Royals. He’d been offered a five year deal by the Rogers people. It wasn’t Mark Shapiro, who starts as club president on Nov. 2. The 38 year old general manager, whose trades brought Toronto its first […]

Baseball’s Cultural Clash Carries on Through October

By Peter Gammons

Published: Oct 15, 2015, 1:52 pm EDT

Most of us get why Jose Bautista aggravates opponents, pitchers, managers, catchers. He watches balls he hits into the mystic as if he’s in the M.O.M.A.. He barks complaints on pitches every pitch he thinks an umpire has missed, which is most of the strikes he has called on him. Bautista is a lightning rod […]

When the Yankees arrived at the Rogers Centre Friday night for the foreign version of a pennant race played over two weekends, they visited a team that had won 11 games in a row and trailed in two of their last 100 innings, a team mystics and statistics believed was bringing a great city into […]

By Peter Gammons

Published: Jul 30, 2015, 4:33 pm EDT

Dayton Moore spent years building the Royals organization, then spent October watching his team come from behind in the play-in wild card game against Oakland and motor all the way to the tying run on third in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game Seven of the World Series. “There comes a point where […]

Waking up to a new AL East

By Peter Gammons

Published: Dec 4, 2014, 9:45 am EST

They don’t know who will manage them, but at least the Tampa Bay Rays know who they are, that there’s a chance they have the best pitcher in the American League East in Alex Cobb and even with their former manager and former general manager in a $150M poker game over Jon Lester that somehow...

For the Blue Jays, It’s Been Too Long to Boast

By Peter Gammons

Published: Nov 29, 2014, 4:43 pm EST

In the first month of the off-winter, Alex Anthopoulos has signed Russell Martin, traded for a prized second base prospect named Devon Travis and now acquired Josh Donaldson, whose WAR puts him in an elite class among all American League players, let alone third basemen. But on Saturday, Anthopoulos refused to spike the ball in […]
