2019 Toronto Blue Jays Opening Day Roster

2019 Toronto Blue Jays Opening Day Roster

We tend to make a bigger deal out of the Opening Day roster than his necessary. On most teams, a transaction or two always occur within the first week, and most people don’t remember who was on the roster on day one by the time day 73 rolls around. Regardless, these are the 25 guys […]

10 Intriguing Storylines for the 2019 Toronto Blue Jays

In case you weren’t aware, the Blue Jays were pretty mediocre for about two decades before 2015. There were underachievers, overachievers, and mediocre clubs. Superstars and busts. In the early part of this decade, Jose Bautista was usually the only reason you’d want to tune into a Jays game. Before him was Roy Halladay. Expectations […]

Getting All Your Jays In A Row

Getting All Your Jays In A Row

When I was a kid, I was fascinated with batting order construction. But in the days long before Twitter, it wasn’t so easy to find out how the Blue Jays were lining up on any given day. I loved going to the ballpark, because they’d have the order posted on the screens in the outfield. […]

Dome Disaster: The Recent History of Home Opener Defeats

For many fans, the home opener is the most anticipated game of the season. Whether it’s the team’s first game of the year or not, it’s an exciting day.

If I Was Gibby – Vol. 1

Everyone loves to play manager at home. “Why didn’t he send the runner there?! He’s bringing in THIS guy from the pen? It should be THAT guy?! Drop down a bunt!!” Well in this new segment, I’m going to pretend I am Gibby. When there’s an important roster decision to be made, I’ll put myself in […]

2018 Blue Jays Over/Unders

2018 Blue Jays Over/Unders

With less than a week to go before Major League Baseball starts their 2018 campaign, it’s fair to say we’re more than ready for the season to start. Grapefruit League games are nearly behind us, and we’re ready to watch the games that count for real. For the Blue Jays, that might be because there’s […]

No Panic — Roberto Osuna Will Be Fine

No Panic — Roberto Osuna Will Be Fine

Needless to say, this season has not gone the way the Toronto Blue Jays wanted it to. The same can be said for All-Star closer Roberto Osuna. On Tuesday night in Boston, the 22-year old blew his 10th save of the season, the most in the Majors. He’s ominously approaching the single-season record of 14. […]

Matt’s Five Fearless Predictions

Matt’s Five Fearless Predictions

We started this activity last season, throwing caution to the wind, trying to boldly forecast production for various Blue Jays players in the 2016 season. The results were, uhh, varied, for myself. But pretty good for Asher. So you can probably completely ignore everything I’m predicting below.

The Season Is Dark and Full of Terrors

The Season Is Dark and Full of Terrors

After a pre-season that has seemingly lasted as long as a Game of Thrones winter, we’re finally less than a week ahead of Opening Day for the 2017 campaign. And while there is much optimism for the Toronto Blue Jays once again, the season, like a Game of Thrones night, is dark and full of terrors. Not […]
