By Tom Dakers

Published: Aug 23, 2016, 10:18 pm EDT

Angels 2 Blue Jays 7 Well hello offense. It seems like it has been a long time since we’ve seen you. I hope you had a nice holiday and have come back ready to work every day. And we got a very nice start out of R.A. Dickey. Dickey went...

Edwin Encarnacion and uncomfortable subjects186

By Tom Dakers

Published: Aug 23, 2016, 2:47 pm EDT

There are subjects I’d much rather avoid at all costs. This is one of them. We have been pretty lucky, in my time on the site, we really haven't had a story of this type. I knew it couldn't last forever. My usual reaction to this type of story is...

Off-Day question: Why are the Jays so bad in 1 run games?212

By Tom Dakers

Published: Aug 22, 2016, 12:21 pm EDT

That ended badly, Jays lose to Indians99999

By Tom Dakers

Published: Aug 21, 2016, 4:22 pm EDT

Blue Jays 2 Indians 3 Well that was just bad luck, plus, yet again, not enough offense. 2 outs in the 8th, Brett Cecil gets the nice, easy ground ball right at Ryan Goins, but it takes a bad hop and the Indians get a runner on. Then Jose Ramirez...

Blue Jays ‘demote’ Aaron Sanchez, promote Aaron Loup99999

By Tom Dakers

Published: Aug 21, 2016, 11:14 am EDT

The Blue Jays switched Aarons. Aaron Loup comes up, and they send all-star Aaron Sanchez to Dunedin. Sanchez has a 12-2 record and a 2.99 ERA in 24 starts, but the important number is the 156.1 innings pitched. The Jays were going to have him skip a start at some...

By Tom Dakers

Published: Aug 20, 2016, 2:19 pm EDT

Today in BBB history: One year ago: I posted a Ken Rosenthal rumor that the Blue Jays were interested in Mark Shapiro to become the new team president. I suggested that if the Jays hired Shapiro that it "would likely mean that Alex Anthopoulos would be leaving". Occasionally I get...

Blue Jays 2 Indians 1 A really thought we were going to win a 2-1 game, but Roberto Osuna picked up just his 3rd blow save of the year and his second loss. Roberto left a couple of pitches up and it cost him. He gave up the game tying...

By Tom Dakers

Published: Aug 19, 2016, 4:43 pm EDT

We have a roster move. Ryan Goins comes up from Buffalo. He's been hitting a little better in August, .270/.333/.514 in 11 games. To make room for him Darrell Cecilliani is taking the ride to Buffalo. Darrell didn't have a great time with the bat with the Jays. He hit...
