Here we are with the second blog posting reviewing the Jays performance to date in 2016 (you can find the post looking at the first 50 games right here). Things have changed quite a bit in the 25 games since...
On Friday night, we watched Kevin Pillar and the Jays get called for a double play because of an illegal slide into second base. Although based on the current rule, there is some debate as to whether Kevin's slide...
July 28th of 2015 was the start of the magical run by the Toronto Blue Jays and an explosion of euphoria engulfed fans across Canada. For the first time since 1993, the Blue Jays’ brass told their fans, and...
One of our personal baseball pet peeves is the shift. Shifts are used by the Toronto Blue Jays depending on who is batting. For left-handed "pull hitters", the Blue Jays frequently move Donaldson to the regular shortstop position and either...
Two weeks ago, we provided some suggestions for the Blue Jays batting order. Within that posting were suggestions to Josh Donaldson and Russell Martin to respectively not always swing for the fences and to hit to right field (or to...
Okay, so I know that the Jays have actually played 52 games at this point, but I created these graphs after 50, so let's just pretend the last two games haven't happened. Everybody alright with that? Now, granted at 50...
With the Jays offence continuing to slump badly, it is time to offer some of our suggestions to improve the team. Certainly our starting pitchers need more run support. With more run support, our team would be in first...
Now that we're into May in the 2016 season, it might be interesting to look back to the Blue Jays' American League East division leading team and compare their offence with previous Jays teams - especially those that won...

Fan Festival

Thank you, Toronto Blue Jays. Last Sunday, I was at the Toronto Blue Jays Season Ticket Holders Fan Festival at Roger's Centre. I estimate that there were over a 1,000 people there, including a large group of young Blue Jays fans,...

Be Cool HDMH!

April has been a frustrating month for the Blue Jays. They are slightly below .500 and the bullpen has been criticized for pitching poorly. The frustration was on display in Marcus Stroman's last start. Stro-show is one of my favourite...
Wow! Like many other Jays fans, we are shocked with the breaking news that Chris Colabello has been suspended for 80 games for taking a performance enhancing drug. Can it be true? Colabello has released a statement explaining that he...

Great Stadium

In the past number of years, there has been a lot of criticism about Rogers Centre and whether it is a good sports stadium. I have never understood the criticism. Toronto definitely needs a domed stadium for baseball. An open-air stadium...
Last week, a video review of Jose Bautista's slide into second base resulted in a game ending double play and a Blue Jays loss. There are many reasons to question the call. Bautista slid before reaching second base, and Bautista...
