Three reasons to watch the Blue Jays in 2015

Details By Rob Neyer

Published: Mar 18, 2015, 11:00 am EDT

The Blue Jays' roster -- especially the rotation -- is loaded with interesting characters, but it will take more than that to end their 20-plus-year playoff drought.

Should Jays make a big move?

Yes, it's a bummer that Marcus Stroman's going to miss the season. Not even the usual elbow ligament, either. Stupid ACL.

On the state of the A.L. East

The best teams in the American League haven't gotten better this off-season, and the worst teams have improved quite a lot. Which should make for an interesting 2015.

Framing Russell Martin's New Deal

Details By Rob Neyer

Published: Nov 17, 2014, 4:15 pm EST

First, I do want to dispense with the notion that Martin will, as his contract winds down, be well-suited to DH'ing. Because, no.

No, the Blue Jays won't finish last again

Details By Rob Neyer

Published: Feb 20, 2014, 10:40 am EST

The Toronto Blue Jays were 2013's most disappointing team. Not just in Major League Baseball. In the known universe. According to Las Vegas (or maybe it's Reno) the Jays will be lousy again in 2014. But something seems to be missing from that equation.

Is R.A. Dickey even better than we thought?

Details By Rob Neyer

Published: Nov 26, 2013, 11:08 am EST

By nature, I'm skeptical. I'm also somewhat cynical. So, yeah: I'm just, you know, generally a great deal of fun. Getting back to the skeptical part, though ... It started within about an hour of purchasing my first Baseball Abstract, some decades ago. I think my skepticism has been good for my...

When R.A. Dickey really tried to fool Mike Trout

Details By Rob Neyer

Published: Sep 13, 2013, 9:36 am EDT

Have you ever seen a sidearm knuckleball? I don't think I had, until Thursday night when I saw this .gif (via Blue Jay Hunter Tumblr): Of course that's R.A. Dickey pitching to Mike Trout. I guess Dickey figured nothing else was working, so whatever. It's just too bad the pitch wasn't close....

When R.A. Dickey pitched like Cy Young again

Details By Rob Neyer

Published: Jun 26, 2013, 7:13 pm EDT

Wednesday afternoon, Robert Allen Dickey spun a nifty two-hit shutout. It's been a disappointing season for Dickey (and fans of his baseball team), but his 88 Game Score is the ninth-best this season for a pitcher facing an American League team. Of course, last season Dickey threw two one-hitters. But this latest gem is a good sign, right? Yes, and...

Will these Blue Jays keep flying high?

Details By Rob Neyer

Published: Jun 24, 2013, 8:43 am EDT

We should never be surprised by regression to the mean. It's fair, though, to be surprised by particularly dramatic regression to the mean. And the Toronto Blue Jays are regressing hard. Usually, that does seem like a good thing. Usually when we're talking about regression, we're talking about a player or a team coming down to the mean. For instance,...
