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.

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.

X-Factor: Steve Pearce

Last month, I started to take a look at some players who might be under-the-radar contributors to the Blue Jays season. If all goes to plan, you know what you’re getting out of Jose Bautista, Josh Donaldson, Troy Tulowitzki and Russell Martin. Even if that core group can stay healthy and produce as usual, you’re still […]
