Reworking the Blue Jays Pitching Staff

Details By Craig Edwards

Published: Apr 20, 2015, 10:00 am EDT

Making wholesale role changes two weeks into the season is not likely a sound strategy, as the decisions leading up to Opening Day take in much more reliable information with considerably more history than a few appearances in April. Likewise, taking promising starters who have yet to prove they cannot start and sending them to the bullpen […]

One Week With Kevin Pillar

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Apr 16, 2015, 3:05 pm EDT

You’ve probably seen what Kevin Pillar did on Wednesday. On the off chance you haven’t, we’ll get to that later, at the right time. Let this much be said now: it was absolutely extraordinary.

Details By Kiley McDaniel

Published: Apr 16, 2015, 12:30 pm EDT

Yesterday I shared notes about the 33 players that should sign on or just after July 2nd and project for seven figures. A common question from readers was if their team had other deals I knew of or if they were planning to go over their bonus pool. I saved part two of this series to […]

The Upside and Downside of Toronto’s Young Relievers

Details By Paul Swydan

Published: Apr 10, 2015, 10:00 am EDT

In Monday’s “Opening Day Staff Survey,” Dave said the storyline he was most looking forward to this season was, “Breaking in young pitching prospects as relievers.” This was a little bit vague, but he elucidated on it further later that day when he recorded his weekly podcast with Carson. If you skip to the 30-minute […]

Urgent News Footage: Edwin Encarnacion Still Baseball T-Rex

Details By Carson Cistulli

Published: Apr 6, 2015, 2:19 pm EDT

At some level, Opening Day represents the birth of a new season and facilitates all the optimism associated with new beginnings. At the same time, however, that new season is also embedded within a perpetual cycle of recurring baseball seasons and their attendant narratives and symbols. Pursuant to that latter point, one finds that while […]

Devon Travis Gets His Shot in Toronto

Details By Chris Mitchell

Published: Apr 1, 2015, 2:30 pm EDT

For the second year in a row, the Blue Jays headed into spring training with no clear second baseman. Last year, their second base competition featured Ryan Goins, Maicer Izturis, Munenori Kawasaki, Chris Getz and Steve Tolleson. Unsurprisingly, this quintet ranked last in our preseason, second base positional power rankings with a collective projection of 0.1 WAR. Nonetheless, the Jays […]

The Latest R.A. Dickey Experiment

Details By August Fagerstrom

Published: Apr 1, 2015, 12:00 pm EDT

R.A. Dickey‘s entire career has, essentially, been one giant experiment. You know the story by now. Dickey was drafted by the Texas Rangers back in 1996, and took a signing bonus for nearly $800,000 less than what was originally offered after team doctors discovered he just didn’t even have an ulnar collateral ligament in his […]

Reintroducing Daniel Norris

Details By Owen Watson

Published: Mar 23, 2015, 11:13 am EDT

Most people know Daniel Norris as the bearded guy who lives out of his VW van. Despite the fact that he prefers the coast instead of down by the river, it’s still a pretty unique background, and that’s not all: Norris also happens to throw baseballs, and do it exceptionally well. Those two descriptions...
