Drew Hutchison needs a new plan against left-handed hitters

Details By Nick Ashbourne

Published: Oct 22, 2014, 8:04 am EDT

The conventional wisdom for RHP is to throw a lot of changeups against opposite-handed hitters. That's not working for Drew Hutchison. Entering the 2014 season Drew Hutchison had an absolutely gargantuan range of outcomes. Coming off Tommy John surgery with a very limited MLB track record, it was very difficult...

Details By MjwW

Published: Oct 21, 2014, 10:08 am EDT

Tonight, the Royals will attempt to continue their improbable run through the playoffs, as the World Series gets underway. But, just be in position to do that, the Royals had to end an even more improbable streak, missing the playoffs for 28 straight years and 27 seasons from 1986-2013, which...

Melky Cabrera finishes 5th in AL Comeback Player of the Year voting

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Oct 20, 2014, 8:13 pm EDT

I thought Melky Cabrera had a shot at the Sporting News AL Comeback Player of the Year award. He came back from a terrible 2013 season, where he hit .279/.322/.360 in 88 games, and played the outfield like he was Tim Conway doing one of his old man bits. This year he...

Details By jessef

Published: Oct 20, 2014, 1:41 pm EDT

This post breaks down the Jays struggles this season into pieces based on the rotation, the relief pitching staff, and the position players.

There's some excitement in Blue Jays land today as two players are celebrating birthdays on this fine Sunday October 19th. Superstar Jose Bautista turns 34, which means he's getting up there in years as he goes into the final guaranteed year of his contract. For his birthday he most certainly...

Timeline of Blue Jays Managers & Coaches added to Bluebird Banter Library

Details By Minor Leaguer

Published: Oct 19, 2014, 9:36 am EDT

Just over a year ago, right after the retirement of Dwayne Murphy and the firing of Chad Mottola, I posted a timeline of all the coaches and managers in Blue Jays history. Since Shi Davidi's report that all the 2014 coaching staff, save Bob Stanley, will be returning in 2015, this is...

Bullpen coach Bob Stanley let go by the Jays

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Oct 17, 2014, 2:44 pm EDT

Shi Davidi tells us that bullpen coach Bob Stanley won't be returning to the Blue Jays next year, but the rest of the staff will, unless DeMarlo Hale gets the Twins manager job, for which he interviewed. Alex Anthopoulos was very clear that he blamed the bullpen for the Jays...

What can the Blue Jays learn from the Royals?

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Oct 17, 2014, 1:38 pm EDT

Words you think you'll never type: the Kansas City Royals, led by Dayton Moore and Ned Yost are Amercian League Champions. Dayton Moore, the man that has spent the last several years being the punch line for jokes that include the words Jeff Francoeur, is the general manager of the American...

Delgado and Fernandez: A study in opposites

Details By MjwW

Published: Oct 17, 2014, 8:00 am EDT

The top position players in the history of the Blue Jays were distinctly as opposite as two great players could be. Towards the end of the 2014 season, it was brought to my attention a few times on this site that Jose Bautista was moving closer to overtaking Jesse Barfield...
