903 Bluebird Banter

Today in Bluebird Banter history

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Sep 22, 2014, 2:35 pm EDT

Not much interesting happening for the Jays at the moment, so I thought I'd take a look at the past. One Year Ago: I asked 'who we'd like to see playing second next year (this year).' And the same question is on my mind at the end of this year. Who did...

Jays lose in their last game against the New York Jeters

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Sep 21, 2014, 4:45 pm EDT

Blue Jays 2 Yankees 5 Not a fun game. The Yankees had 3 cheapie, Yankee Stadium type home runs, 2 for Brian McCann, one for Brett Gardner and that pretty much won the game for them. Again, only the top of the order could hit. We had 7 hits, 3 for Jose...

Marcus Stroman's suspension dropped to 5 games

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Sep 21, 2014, 12:25 pm EDT

They dropped one game off Marcus Stroman's suspension, he'll now serve 5 games. He was to start on Thursday, that will now be pushed back to Friday. Thursday's start will be handed to the bullpen, with Todd Redmond likely to start and go from there. I'd have started Daniel Norris, but I'm...

A Win! Blue Jays beat the New York Jeters

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Sep 20, 2014, 7:39 pm EDT

Blue Jays 6 Yankees 3 A win! I forgot what wins were like. We scored some run for a change: Edwin Encarnacion doubled home Jose Bautista in the first. We got 3 in the 6th. Bautista walked, Edwin singled and Dioner Navarro walked. A ground rule double from Danny Valencia scored two...

Man, I am tired of stupid baseball players

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Sep 19, 2014, 4:11 pm EDT

Don't baseball players ever think before they speak? Shawn Kelley didn't like Jose Bautista slamming his bat down after hitting the home runs last night. Isn't it fun to be at the birth of a new 'unwritten rule'. Asked RHP Shawn Kelley about Jose Bautista’s slamming bat & seeming to curse after...

Buck and Pat approval poll

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Sep 19, 2014, 3:31 pm EDT

We've had approval polls about John Gibbons and Alex Anthopoulos, I thought maybe we could have an approval poll from our TV play-by-play team. It's fair to say I'm not a fan of Buck and Pat. They drive me to use the mute button, time and time again. I like having the...

Who is your pick for Jays most pleasant surprise this year?

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Sep 19, 2014, 1:47 pm EDT

The team has been pretty depressing lately, so let's try to talk about something a little less depressing. When we do the 'View from the other side' posts, I often ask 'who has been your most pleasant surprise', so I figured let's have a poll on which player has surprised us the...

Jose Bautista hits home run, but Jays still lose

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Sep 19, 2014, 1:05 am EDT

Blue Jays 2 Yankees 3 So that was awful. Jose Bautista ties up the game in the 8th with a 2-run homer. And then, in the bottom of the 9th, the Yankees walk off on a Adam Lind error. Chris Young started the inning with a single. Pinch runner Antoan Ricardson stole...

Poll Time: Do you approve of the job Alex Anthopoulos is doing?

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Sep 18, 2014, 1:52 pm EDT

We have a Gibbons' approval poll in the other post today. Let's do one on Alex. I talked a fair bit about Alex in the last one. As mentioned, his inability to make a clear statement in interviews bugs me. He has this ability to talk (and talk) without saying anything. I always...

Is John Gibbons' job safe?

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Sep 18, 2014, 12:07 pm EDT

Alex Anthopoulos said some annoyingly cryptic things about the future of John Gibbons. I'll admit, the thing that drive me nuts about Alex is his refusal to ever give a straight answer in an interview. John Lott called it "practised ambiguity". J.P. Ricciardi had his "it's not a lie if we know...
