Looking Ahead

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Sep 20, 2012, 6:16 pm EDT

It's that time of the year that we have become so accustomed to in Jays-land, when the desire to watch significant baseball games means watching someone besides the Blue Jays, and thoughts of the Blue Jays are necessarily focused on "next year" again. Still, since one of the things I like best about baseball is the whole art and science...

Concerning Escobar

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Sep 18, 2012, 9:58 pm EDT

Ain't it the way? Here I am yesterday finally dedicating myself to working up one of my patented gigantic posts (which any post here is all too rare this summer) and just wondering how to handle the breaking-but-predictable news of the Buffalo deal and THIS happens. Not that I'm complaining about my minor inconvenience, just noting the timing conflict. So...

Looking Back

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Sep 7, 2012, 3:57 am EDT

I've noticed something about myself, which you may have noted too - when the Blue Jays have an extended run of hard times, I end up having little to say. By nature, my fandom is built around positivity and optimism. I don't much enjoy the sort of fandom that is built around negativity and criticism. But for the last month,...

4/5 Farm Report

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Aug 5, 2012, 11:55 pm EDT

Technically a couple of days early but I have the time for this right now. As always my goal is to highlight a dozen players or so who are greatly increasing their standing in the organization over the season so far, with an emphasis on the last month or so.Pitchers1. Roberto Osuna (RHP) - the 17 year old made a...

Obligatory Remarks

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Aug 2, 2012, 3:43 am EDT

Simple point: I loved Eric Thames from the day he was drafted and i will continue to follow his career but, ultimately, he's probably just a guy. In terms of actual baseball accomplishments. Think of, say, Jacob Brumfield (not making a direct comparison, just speaking of the sort of carer that seems likely). We dealt him for another "just a...

NEWS!

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Jul 20, 2012, 12:03 pm EDT

As you surely know, the Jays announced a big trade this morning. Not a stellar trade but a lot of bodies. I had a strong suspicion as I went to bed last night with the knowledge that Travis Snider was on his way to Boston that something was afoot. I even figured it must involve either Francisco or Davis going...

Life, the Universe, and Everything

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Jul 8, 2012, 3:26 am EDT

One of the meme's of prospect focused baseball blogs is the progression to rank more and more prospects, just to be the one who listed the most names. I'm very guilty of that, having once mentioned as many as 70 (which is at least ten times as many as will ever actually be an impact major leaguer, on average). I've...

Mid-Season Thoughts

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Jul 5, 2012, 1:29 am EDT

Traditionally I do a mid-season post, and I also have been doing periodic posts after each 1/5 (approximately) of the minor league season. Given the lack of bloggage around here (you will possibly note the absence of the 2/5 Report), I'm going to squeeze in both goals for this week.On the major league level, it seems emotionally to have been...

Perchance to dream . . .

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: Jun 26, 2012, 1:55 am EDT

(yes, I've been very quiet here lately. I've started a new job and my schedule is unsettled, posting may be irregular for some time to come)Yes, i was the one saying, at the beginning of the year, that the Jays had enough pitching to begin the season. I reached that conclusion, which I still find valid, because you had to...

About First Base

Details By Tammy Rainey

Published: May 30, 2012, 1:04 am EDT

Here's a quick and dirty bit of rosterbation - involving what seems to me to be a prime but overlooked candidate to help fix the 1B situation if;/when the Jays resign themselves to the idea that Lind isn't the answer.There's a guy out there who, while aging and expensive, has the skill-set to be everything Lind was not. He's the...
