Turn the Page: Bats Flail as Jays Drop Series with Angels.99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Aug 26, 2016, 6:06 pm EDT

I had some issues with some of the press prior to this Angels series saying that the Jays needed to take advantage of this "soft" schedule. Not because they didn't need to do that, but because it didn't take into account some of the essential characteristics of baseball. These characteristics...

Weekend of Suck: Jays Drop Series in Cleveland99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Aug 22, 2016, 10:55 pm EDT

Martin's forearm looks fantastic there....wait, what? Oh, right. That was an extremely irritating weekend of baseball. Leads in all three, one win. Could've easily been a sweep. Wasn't. The basic issue was that the Jays pitched brilliantly but let the Indians hang around too much because there was no big knock to...

Indulgent: Jays Overwhelm Yankees to take Series.99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Aug 19, 2016, 3:42 pm EDT

So how exactly did the Jays respond to being completely shut down by a rookie Yankee (and also perhaps to the mere suggestion that Edwin Encarnación should’ve bunted on Monday)?By scoring 19 runs and reminding the Yankees just who the class of the division is.It looked bleak on Tuesday after...

Greened: Jays Dropped by Yankees 1-0.99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Aug 16, 2016, 5:09 pm EDT

The Jays lost 1-0 to the Yankees. They could get nothing going against Chad Green. It was both terrible and boring. I switched to Olympic track and field, which was neither. Late on Twitter, someone began arguing with Ben Ennis about bunting. That someone was Brad Gagnon. I was like "Wait....what?"...

Sometimes You Hate It: Jays Take Weekend Series vs Astros.99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Aug 15, 2016, 7:17 pm EDT

Much like the Jays’ bats over the past week, this space has been a quiet one. Turns out heat wave related headaches and smashed technology tools makes writing difficult (RIP phone.) Since the bats woke up, it would probably be a good idea to wake up the space. I went to the...

So Let’s Shoot for That: One Crazy Week of Blue Jays Baseball99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Aug 5, 2016, 2:55 pm EDT

This has been quite the week in the land of Blue Jays.There was a lot of talk about the number of times the Jays struck out in Minute Maid Park (1.5 billion was the final number.)However, given that they took 3 of 4 from the Astros, I’m struggling to care. Danny...

TRADES AND EXTRA INNINGS: A YELLED POST99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Aug 2, 2016, 7:28 pm EDT

Because Squarespace doesn't think software freezing is a thing that happens, it doesn't have autosave. I had a long  post, full of genius, and it got frozen when I was trying to add a picture. Post = gone.I don't have the energy to re-write the whole thing, so here is me shouting...

Talking Jays: 100 Games In99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Jul 29, 2016, 6:02 pm EDT

On Tuesday I sat in the little studio at the Pacific Junction Hotel at King and Sherbourne and talked baseball while nursing a Heineken for 90 minutes. Karim Kanji was my host. I listened to the whole thing and realized that I was unable to be critical about any Toronto Blue...

Avoiding the Sweep: Jays Salvage One vs Mariners99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Jul 24, 2016, 10:05 pm EDT

Another weekend, another suboptimal series versus an AL West team. Friday saw the return of Marco Estrada from the D.L. Estrada picked up right where he left off, meaning he was awesome. The only issue was that Seattle's James Paxton befuddled the Jays' hitters who could only muster a solo homer...

Tidy Little Sweep: Sanchez, Stroman (and Russell's Knee)99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Jul 22, 2016, 7:31 pm EDT

That was a tidy little two game sweep in the desert. Aaron Sanchez pitched like the boss he is, further complicating the decision the Blue Jays will have to make regarding whether Sanchez (arguably their best starter) should be moved to the 'pen. Sanchez credited his fastball command for his successful outing...
