If a baseball game is played with no baseball players, can anyone see it? Impressions from the Ballpark, March 12

By Roberto

PUBLISHED: Mar 12, 2017, 9:16 pm EDT

I guess that's a "yes". Today, I was at a baseball game between a bunch of guys wearing Toronto Blue Jays uniforms, and an approximation of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.  And these are my impressions.Sometimes, I wonder why people go to...

The worst that could happen

By Roberto

PUBLISHED: Mar 8, 2017, 11:35 pm EST

Yeah, let's not do that again. So, like I said a couple of weeks ago, there's not much in the way of interesting positional battles this spring.   Over the last 3 weeks and the next 3 weeks, guys will work on...

The Jays have a Smoak problem

By Roberto

PUBLISHED: Feb 27, 2017, 10:13 pm EST

You may have noticed a recurring theme through the past offseason:  Justin Smoak’s presence preventing the Jays from doing things we want them to do. Could the Jays have signed Encarnacion after signing Morales?  Nope – where would Smoak play? How about...

Spring training roster battles, 2017 edition

By Roberto

PUBLISHED: Feb 17, 2017, 10:23 pm EST

Warlords was totally underrated, brah.In years past, we could generally count on some interesting roster battles to give us something to talk about during spring training.  Year after year, we’d have the opportunity to debate which mediocre journeyman (Jo-Jo-Reyes, Josh Towers), washed...

Justin Morneau: Good idea, bad idea, or terrible idea?

By Roberto

PUBLISHED: Feb 8, 2017, 9:03 pm EST

Sorry (to an actual Canadian) about that concussion (inflicted by an honourary Canadian)I read an article in the Star today that listed the remaining big(gish)-name, unsigned free agents (Awww… I see YOU, Joe Blanton! *pointing and smiling*).   And (as you probably guessed...

Bullpen philosophizin'

By Roberto

PUBLISHED: Feb 6, 2017, 10:03 pm EST

Life could be worse.So, the Blue Jays didn’t sign Boone Logan or Jerry Blevins.  They didn’t sign Matt Belisle or Sergio Romo.  They didn’t bring back Brett Cecil and it’s not looking like they’re at all interested in Joe Blanton.  I advocated...

Joe Blanton, or....?

By Roberto

PUBLISHED: Feb 2, 2017, 8:54 pm EST

That would work.So if the Jays need another reliever, who should it be?Yesterday, I indicated that another lefthander would be nice – and it would still be nice.  But at this point, MLBTR’s list of unsigned lefthanded relievers isJerry Blevins                                                                Chris Capuano                                                             Boone Logan                                                               Javier...

J.P. Howell is on board

By Roberto

PUBLISHED: Feb 1, 2017, 10:29 pm EST

You’re saying I’m the top lefthanded relief option?!The Blue Jays have signed lefthanded reliever J.P. Howell to a 2017 contract.  Time to cue up “The ship is sinking” jokes.It’s been expected for some time that the team would pick up one of Jerry Blevins,...

Obligatory post about Jarrod Saltalamacchia

By Roberto

PUBLISHED: Jan 25, 2017, 8:24 pm EST

The first rainbow of 2017!  He’s better than Josh Thole.OK – even backup catchers deserve more of a writeup than that.  Yes, Saltalamacchia is better than old T-Hole (who signed a minor league deal with Arizona last week, so you can stop pining...

What can we expect from Melvin Upton in 2017?

By Roberto

PUBLISHED: Jan 18, 2017, 8:08 pm EST

 (Toronto Star) My future’s so bright, but my past was brighter.For me, the strangest deal of 2016 was the Jays’ acquisition of Melvin Upton from the Padres in exchange for extremely raw pitching prospect Hansel Rodriguez.  It’s not that the Jays didn’t need...
