Poll Time: What do you think of the Ben Revere trade?

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Aug 2, 2015, 12:08 pm EDT

I'll admit, I wasn't all that excited about getting Ben Revere. LFers who OPS about .700 don't excite me. I'm not a fan of slap hitters, especially ones that don't walk. And I really didn't like the idea of him leading off. But....he didn't cost the Blue Jays as much...

Tough Jays debut for Mark Lowe, Jays lose to Royals

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Aug 1, 2015, 4:06 pm EDT

Royals 7   Blue Jays 6 The new guy had a rough day. It's tough, I hated that trade, but Mark Lowe is a better pitcher than that. The Ben Zobrist home run was crushed, after that he had some bad luck on balls in play. He didn't impress, but...

Friday Bantering: Jays put Devon Travis on DL today and Price news

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Jul 31, 2015, 12:43 pm EDT

What a fun morning it has been, arguing the value of Ben Revere (sort of an ok player, looks better if you only judge players by their batting average). I was just going to go out for a bike ride when this tweet came: John Gibbons tells us the #BlueJays...

Two in a row. Royals 2 Blue Jays 5 That was a nice win. Good start for Marco Estrada, 5.2 innings, just 3 hits allow (2 singles, 1 double), no walks with 3 strikeouts. He had a bit of trouble in the 1st inning, getting 2 quick outs, then hit...

The Troy Tulowitzki appreciation recap

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Jul 29, 2015, 9:59 pm EDT

A great win. After yesterday we needed that. Phillies 2 Blue Jays 8 I think we are going to love Troy Tulowitzki. All he did was homer in his second at bat, and double in his next two at bats. 3 RBI, 3 runs, 8 total bases and some very nice...

Tonight's lineup: we have a new leadoff hitter

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Jul 29, 2015, 3:45 pm EDT

I wonder when was the last time Tulo hit leadoff? Jose Bautista is playing, at DH, likely a good idea, Devon Travis isn't playing. Please be ok Devon. We really need an outfielder...not o insult Danny Valencia or Ezequiel Carrera, but we need someone else. Maybe Dalton Pompey. Maybe, if...

Blue Jays DFA Felix Doubront

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Jul 29, 2015, 3:18 pm EDT

Well this is a kind of interesting move,, Felix Doubront gets DFAed to make room for Troy Tulowitzki. Felix had 5 appearances for the Blue Jays. 4 starts after a relief appearance. He wasn't awful, but them he wasn't good either. In 22.2 innings, he had a 4.76 ERA, with 32...
