Blue Jays 8 Yankees 4 Who says Canadians can't play baseball? Put down your hand Harold. Russell Martin had 2 home runs (he came up about 5 feet short of a 3rd home run in the ninth, flying out to deep right center) and 3 RBI. Those were the first...

Tuesday Bantering: Random Blue Jays thoughts

By Tom Dakers

Published: May 24, 2016, 11:36 am EDT

We start a series against the series against the Yankees tonight. The Yankees are on a 5 game win streak (I wonder what that feels like), getting some good starting pitching. Just some random thoughts that I don't feel like padding out to a full post: Can we make it...

When will MLB outlaw throwing at batters for 'revenge'?

By Tom Dakers

Published: May 23, 2016, 12:11 pm EDT

One thing I wish MLB would do is outlaw the 'fun police'. I guess this doesn't even fall under fun police. The Twins decided that the reigning AL MVP wasn't playing the game right, so they had to correct him. Can you imagine that in any other business. Let's say...

Back-to-back homers from Bautisa and Donaldson, plus a great start from Stroman, Jays beat Twins

By Tom Dakers

Published: May 22, 2016, 4:56 pm EDT

Blue Jays 3 Twins 1 Once again we score early. 3 runs in the first inning. Back-to-back homers from Jose Bautista and Josh Donaldson and then a Michael Saunders walk, with a Troy Tulowitzki double to drive him home. Then, 8 innings of nothing. We had chances. We had 9...

By Tom Dakers

Published: May 22, 2016, 12:35 pm EDT

There are a couple of bits of Blue Jays news that I figured we could talk about. Bob Elliot, in the Sun, asks if the Jays will Trade Drew Storen? And then Sportsnet tells us that Drew is available in trade talks. Bob tells us: Scouts from the Atlanta Braves, Colorado Rockies,...

A bad inning costs the Jays a win

By Tom Dakers

Published: May 21, 2016, 4:48 pm EDT

Blue Jay 2 Twins 5 Until the bottom of the 8th, that was a fun game. J.A. Happ was cruising along. Through 7 innings he had allowed just 1 hit and 2 walks. He was nearly perfect. Then came the bottom of the 8. Happ gave up a single, then...

Now these are the bats we were looking for: Jays beat Twins

By Tom Dakers

Published: May 20, 2016, 11:03 pm EDT

Blue Jays 9 Twins 3 It feels funny to think this, in a game that was a blow out, but the big moment of the game came with 2 outs in the top of the 6th. We were up 3-1, had runners on first and second and Ryan Goins due...

Who's up, Who's down: Blue Jays batters

By Tom Dakers

Published: May 20, 2016, 5:57 pm EDT

Over the past 12 games, the offence has averaged 3.4 runs a game. Not exactly what we've been hoping to see. As a group we've been hitting .230/.297/.377. Batters  Russell Martin Martin started 9 of the 12 games. It really isn't going well. He hit .156/.222/.156 with 2 RBI, 3...

Mark Shapiro on Sportsnet

By Tom Dakers

Published: May 20, 2016, 2:45 pm EDT

Mark Shapiro was on Sportsnet with Jeff Blair this morning. I figured we should have a thread to discuss what was said. Go listen and come back, we'll wait. Or I could share a few highlights: Asked about the first 40 games: Disappointing. Starting a season like this makes it amplified....
