952 The Southpaw

The Season for Listing

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Nov 9, 2012, 1:52 am EST

We're in the midst of that very special season in which baseball fans seek out lists and make their own. One of my favorite pastimes, to be sure. While I'm in the midst of the ponderous process of doing the positional rankings, let me interrupt the series to report to you that two of the more respected major publications have...

And We Have a 2B!

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Nov 8, 2012, 2:42 pm EST

MLBTR reports that the Jays have signed Maicer Izturis (formerly of the Angels) to a 3 year deal worth $10M, with a club option for a 4th year. The reaction in comments I've seen so far seems to be pretty positive about this signing. Just over $3M per year is only a bit more than what the Jays were gonna...

Should the Jays Pursue Greinke? A Word of Caution About Pitcher WAR

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Nov 5, 2012, 9:05 pm EST

It's certainly no secret that the Jays need starting pitching (2 of them, in fact, as per my earlier post), and it is also no secret that the only "bona fide ace" out there on the open market this winter will be Zack Greinke. Putting two and two together, there are many fans out there who would love to see...

Quick Trade Reaction

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Nov 4, 2012, 6:37 pm EST

As you should all know by now, the Jays have trade Mike Aviles and Yan Gomes for Esmil Rogers. After spending so much time pondering whether Aviles was a good return for a manager or not, what do we make of this?My first reaction was that this trade was kinda a head-scratcher. After the disappointment that were weren't getting Pedroia...

Is Shoring Up the Rotation More Important than Filling Offensive Holes?

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Nov 2, 2012, 2:25 pm EDT

AA has made it clear that his first priority this winter will be to improve the starting rotation. However, I think many people out there have a misconception about this need that I'd like to correct. Just because the offense has shown that it can be good as is, and the pitching needs serious help, does not mean that AA...

The 2012 Offseason: Part 2

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Nov 1, 2012, 5:35 pm EDT

Now that we've clarified what the holes are on the Jays' roster, what surplus they have to parlay and what kind of financial resources they should have available to them, I just wanted to quickly discuss the type of players they should be looking for to fill each of their holes. Which positions could do fine with short term fillers,...

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Nov 1, 2012, 10:38 am EDT

As you might have read in the addendum to the previous post, I'm the new guy around here. I just wanted to say that I'm very excited to have the opportunity to be a writer for this blog and I look forward to sharing ideas and opinions with Blue Jays fans worldwide. Of course, discussion is always more fun than...

2012 Positional Rankings: Corner Infielders

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Nov 1, 2012, 2:41 am EDT

As the ongoing speculation rages over the Jays manager position, about which I have not enough information to add anything worthwhile except as already stated regarding the coaches, I will get back to my series and in so doing I come to the position which is likely the weakest in the system, in terms of depth of potential major leaguers....

Positional Rankings: Middle Infielders

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Oct 20, 2012, 12:44 am EDT

And so the smoke is rolling around the Farrell story, and it begins to look like something MUST be on fire. The Jays are said to be discussing the compensation with the Sox and for some perverse reason I keep getting the feeling we'll be hearing the name Zack Stewart involved somehow. But since I know nothing on that front...

Positional Rankings: Outfielders

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Oct 13, 2012, 3:07 am EDT

On the occasion of the LCS opponents being set with the Cardinals storming back to knock out the Nats, I begin my annual fall series looking at the jays farm system by position. I note with interest that a couple of other sites have picked up on my schtick and are probably doing it better but I was doing it...
