We start a weekend series with the Tampa Bay Rays tonight, in Tampa (or really St. Petersburg). The Rays are 10-11, sitting in 3rd in the AL East, a game ahead of the Jays. They sit last him the league in runs scored per game, at 3.28 (we are about...

Discussion time: What would you do to try to 'spark' the Blue Jays?

By Tom Dakers

Published: Apr 28, 2016, 1:51 pm EDT

So if you were in charge, if you were Gibby or Mark Shapiro what would you try to spark the Blue Jays? I'm not a big fan of firing the manager just to fire the manager. I don't see it as Gibby's fault the relievers aren't bringing any relief or...

Poll Time: Do you approve of the job John Gibbons is doing?

By Tom Dakers

Published: Apr 27, 2016, 4:10 pm EDT

I figure it is about time we did one of these. We aren't off to the start that we expected, and, generally the manager takes the blame for things like that. The offense hasn't been great, though it is starting to come around. I'm not sure how much you can...

Jays call up Ryan Tepera, send Pat Venditte to Buffalo

By Tom Dakers

Published: Apr 27, 2016, 12:23 pm EDT

Well this one surprises me. Pat Venditte is being shipped back to Buffalo, Ryan Tepera takes his place on the Blue Jays roster and in the bullpen. Venditte hasn't been good, 7.36 ERA in 5 appearances, covering 3.2 innings. He allowed 5 hits, 4 walks with 2 strikeouts. He's fun...

That was one awful game, Jays lose to White Sox

By Tom Dakers

Published: Apr 26, 2016, 9:46 pm EDT

White Sox 10 Blue Jays 1 There isn't much good to say about that. Chris Sale was terrific. 8 innings, 4 hits allowed, 2 walks and 6 strikeouts. I'm just happy he didn't throw a no-hitter. The one black mark against him was Edwin Encarnacion's 200th home run as a...

On possible extensions to Encarnacion and Bautista

By Tom Dakers

Published: Apr 26, 2016, 5:59 pm EDT

Jon Heyman tells us (why is it always Heyman?) that the Blue Jays offered Edwin Encarnacion a two-year contract with 2 years of vesting options. I'll admit, that's the sort of contract I'd be trying to sell him on. If I am Edwin, I wouldn't be all that excited about...

More on last night's game

By Tom Dakers

Published: Apr 26, 2016, 2:01 pm EDT

More on last night's game: Let's talk about the 7 inning. Actually let's talk about the bottom of the 7th. Yeah, the top of the 7th is when the game fell apart, but the interesting part, to me, was the bottom of the inning. Specifically, two outs, in the bottom...

Matt Dominguez called up from Buffalo

By Tom Dakers

Published: Apr 26, 2016, 12:50 am EDT

He would have been handy to have today, someone should have pinch hit for Ryan Goins against the lefty reliever. Anyway Matt Dominguez is the one being called up to take the roster spot Drew Hutchison temporary held. Dominguez was hitting .311/.333/.475 with 2 home runs, 3 walks and 7...

Monday Bantering: More on Colabello and today's lineup

By Tom Dakers

Published: Apr 25, 2016, 4:47 pm EDT

I was hoping we would hear about who was coming up to fill Drew Hutchison's spot in the roster, but apparently that won't happen until after today's game. I'd imagine it has something to do with Drew having to clear optional waivers. No word on who is coming up, but...
