The Blue Jays aren't going to spend like the Yankees or the Dodgers. So Tao of Stieb makes the case that they should focus more on drafting and development.

When I learned that the Toronto Blue Jays' 2013 season had been documented in book form, I'll confess that my first reaction was somewhere between nausea and dread. In that moment, I couldn't imagine reliving the season that had just passed, nor did I care to dissect it any further.At some point,...

There were happy times. Really. Photo courtesy the Flickr stream of @james_in_to.Nobody knows nothing.Maybe that doesn't seem like the most profound sentiment, and it probably sounded better when Socrates said something like it in his day. I am paraphrasing, mind you, and my version is certainly lacking grammatically.Still, it's the first thing that...

Letters...we get letters.I'll confess that part of the reason that I started doing these mailbag-style posts - which I confess can be a touch hacky - is that it gave me a chance to take the pulse of the fans, and see what preoccupies them. And if you'll indulge a bit of...

Darin Erstad - Short-lived record holder?Late in the 2000 season, Darin Erstad made a valiant run at the all-time single season hits record in Major League Baseball. Every night, fans hoped that their local broadcast would break into the Anaheim Angels' game with news of Erstad's pursuit of Wade Boggs' 15 year-old...

Last year around this time, there was a notion that no matter what happened in 2013, it couldn't possibly be worse than what transpired in 2012. Which just goes to show you that there are a thousand shades of misery.As the season concluded last year, there was significant discussion about the "crisis...

Fellow Jays fans, I feel your pain.If I have spent much of the last seven seasons looking on the sunny side of things, and finding the lightness where most saw dark, and providing my optimistic sense of the rationale behind the Blue Jays' long term plans, then maybe my current state of mind will catch you off guard. But man...I...

Photo courtesy the revelatory Flickr stream of @james_in_to.Maybe it's a touch harsh to say that the 2013 Toronto Blue Jays "suck". The team itself is not so awful as to be unwatchable, and has actually been rather entertaining at various points of the season.(I'll pause here while you instinctively summon up an argument about the team's "consistency". And I'll silently judge...
