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...

Suboptimal: Jays Stumble out of Gate vs A's99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Jul 19, 2016, 6:23 pm EDT

That first series after the All Star Break could best be described as suboptimal. It's never fun to lead in three games and come out with just the one victory. Friday night's game was a step backward for Stroman after several steps forward right before the break. Stroman coughed up a...

"Sorry Blue Jays": on Tampering, Drug Testing and Anthem Changing.99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Jul 14, 2016, 3:45 pm EDT

So we all got past the most boring day in the baseball season: the day after the All Star Game.  The game itself was also boring. My interest was in seeing the four Blue Jays make an appearance and once they did, that was that. Notes on the actual game:Edwin Encarnacion pinch...

Cuttered: Stroman Dominates vs Royals99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Jul 7, 2016, 6:04 pm EDT

The case of Marcus Stroman has been a tricky one in the first half of the 2016 season. Stroman famously battled back from a devastating knee injury to pitch down the stretch and into the playoffs in 2015. He publicly declared that he wanted to be considered the ace, even if...

A Hell of a Lot of Baseball: Jays Split Series with Indians.99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Jul 4, 2016, 6:27 pm EDT

This Toronto-Cleveland series was a hell of a lot of baseball, and not only because it was five games for the price of four. It had fantastic pitching and explosive offence, though not in the same game. It had a winning streak extended to 14 in a 19 inning game and...

A Tale of Two Shortstops99999

By Joanna Cornish

Published: Jun 27, 2016, 5:27 pm EDT

Please note: writing in this space has been scarce as my old workhorse of a laptop was dying a slow death and made updating difficult. I was also quite effected by the death of my furry companion of 14 years, making writing a serious chore. Baseball, as always, was a...
