Watch This, Part 2

As we get into this discussion, the easy complaint would be that none of these guys matter because they aren't "proven" - but just because it's easy doesn't make it right. One year ago, for example, Todd Redmond was "unproven." In the 2013 - you remember the great bullpen in...

Watch This

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Feb 19, 2015, 1:15 pm EST

So reporting days are looming, several layers are already in Dunedin and the Jays' press (and blogosphere) are awash with articles discussing unresolved questions that remain to be addressed in the six weeks or so ahead of us. This post represents an effort in a similar vein, but I will...

Prospects: Revision and Consensus

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Feb 17, 2015, 1:19 am EST

So, seven weeks since I published my personal idea of what a Blue Jays prospect list would look like, and a lot has been written about the crop since then and as my list is (by virtue of the fact that I'm not a scout obviously) reflective of what others...

With less than 3 weeks until the first spring game, it's time to start gearing up for more frequent activity around this place. I actually have a couple bigger projects in the pipeline but I'm held up waiting on a couple of sources.In the mean time I was taking in...

Money, Logic and Shields

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Feb 4, 2015, 4:04 am EST

I keep reading that the Blue Jays will still meet or exceed last year's $137m payroll even as measured in American dollars and presuming that to mean ~$140m it is generally reported that means the team has $5-7m to spend. That math doesn't work based on commonly available figures. That...

Caviar Wishes?

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Jan 23, 2015, 3:44 am EST

I've waited 3 weeks for the team to do something mildly interesting to warrant some sort of post.  And I've resisted touching on the Rogers/Beeston/Douquette mess since the ground seems to shift almost hourly under our feet. Until now. Certain sources continue to insist against all reason and sanity that...

The Countdown.

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Dec 29, 2014, 2:46 am EST

In the past I've tried various creative formats to write up top prospect posts, hoping to distinguish my opinions from the plethora of other lists out there, many of which are offered by those far more qualified to express their views. But ultimately, someone else is always going to have...

Bullpen Imports?

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Dec 17, 2014, 1:45 am EST

It's beginning to look like the Jays' view that Dusty McGowan's $4mm option was too much for a set-up reliever may have been a misreading of the market. Jason Motte - who missed almost all of the last two seasons - Just got $4.5mm for one year from the Cubs...

The Bullpen and other Meeting thoughts

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Dec 12, 2014, 2:32 am EST

So, while I await whether or not there's any fire to the smoke leaking out regarding the Blue Jays and SS(potential 2B) Takashi Toritani it seems the subject on everyone's lips and keyboards is the bullpen. So let me see if I can reel off one of my old school...

Ins and Outs

I had decided that, barring some action in between, I'd wait until after the tender deadline to comment again, reacting to whatever the Jays decided to do last night. Of course, it being Alex, what he decided to do today was more interesting. Alex waits for no (wo)man or meeting....
