Colby Rasmus, Enigma

Details By Drew Fairservice

Published: Aug 27, 2014, 9:00 am EDT

The Toronto Blue Jays season is a two-part story. What began as a pleasant surprise quickly descended into a lucid, waking nightmare. Two Blue Jays’ outfielders heading into free agency embody each of those characteristics. While Melky Cabrera is putting together a brilliant platform season before heading to free-agency, Colby Rasmus seems to have spent all […]

Game Pace and the Mark Buehrle Effect

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Aug 22, 2014, 4:23 pm EDT

We’re talking about pace-of-game again, in light of the recent vote to identify the next commissioner. Baseball games are taking longer and longer, with replay and constant shifting only adding to the length, and while certain fans believe it’s no issue because that’s just the beauty of baseball, this is one of those areas where […]

Sunday Notes: Stroman; Kaat, Costas & Players on Flood and Free Agency, Smoltz Trade

Details By David Laurila

Published: Aug 3, 2014, 8:00 am EDT

Marcus Stroman has all the looks of an ace in the making. The 23-year-old Toronto Blue Jays righthander has won seven of his first nine big-league decisions and has a 3.03 ERA and a 2.97 FIP. Remove six-and-a-third relief innings from the equation and his ERA is 2.12. Drafted 22nd overall in 2012 out of […]

Aaron Sanchez and the Trevor Rosenthal Experiment

Details By Blake Murphy

Published: Jul 18, 2014, 9:00 am EDT

On Thursday night, preseason consensus top-50 prospect Aaron Sanchez made his first appearance of the season out of the bullpen for the Buffalo Bisons, the Triple-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. Sanchez’s move to the pen is notable for several reasons, even though he already had 14 relief appearances on his minor league resume (though […]

Sunday Notes: Baker’s Books, Barney’s Leather, Buehrle’s Bullets & More

Details By David Laurila

Published: Jul 6, 2014, 8:00 am EDT

John Baker isn’t a cookie-cutter catcher in the mold of a Yogi Berra or a Crash Davis. He doesn’t read comic books or converse in cliches. The Chicago Cubs backstop is a deep thinker who sees parallels between pitchers and a character in American Psycho. Baker attended Cal Berkeley, but the foundation for his pitch-calling […]

Jose Bautista: Force of Nature

Details By Tony Blengino

Published: Jun 27, 2014, 9:00 am EDT

For all of the natural ebbs and flows of individual player performance, the game’s ruling class — the elite of the elite — is a fairly closed society that remains fairly static from year to year. Any given season might have its Yasiel Puig breaking through, or its Albert Pujols conceding his seat. But the […]

Is Brett Lawrie Putting Himself In Harm’s Way?

Details By Blake Murphy

Published: Jun 26, 2014, 9:00 am EDT

It’s kind of hard to pick apart Brett Lawrie’s game right now. Yes, the strikeout rate is up some and the walk rate down even further, but he already has a career-high in home runs, his isolated slugging is up and he is once again posting roughly a league-average weighted runs created plus (98), more […]

Casey Janssen And The Hyperefficient Save

Details By Blake Murphy

Published: Jun 13, 2014, 3:15 pm EDT

Entering the bottom of the ninth on June 5th, Toronto Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen probably thought he had lucked into a day off. He had just had the previous day off but hey, nobody is going to argue with a leisurely getaway day. And so with the Jays leading the Detroit Tigers 7-3 thanks […]

Sunday Notes: College-or-Pro Decisions, Padres Database, Blue Jays, Cubs, Clubhouse Banter

Details By David Laurila

Published: Jun 8, 2014, 7:00 am EDT

David Hale went to college. Chris Archer signed out of high school. Why the big-league pitchers chose their respective paths could serve as a template for preps selected in the just-completed draft. Everyone’s situation is unique, but many will use similar reasoning in making their choices. “A lot of the decision is financial,” said Archer, […]
