Blue Jays Hope Tulo Makes It Through Customs Without Injury

Late last night, Troy Tulowitzki was traded to the Blue Jays. Both hammys, his quads, his obliques, his elbow tendons, both groins. Why does he have two groins again? Maybe we don't need to know. The Rockies getting rid of Tulo makes me think of when a kid is dropped off at the airport to fly alone. A flight attendant walks with the kid, trying to make conversation, waits with...

Clutchlings Blue Jays Minor League Notebook Returns!

Hello faithful readers.  My wife and I were off on a three week vacation – a week in Barcelona, one week in the south of Tenerife (part of the Canary Islands), and a week on that island’s west coast.  We swam in the ocean, climbed a volcano, ate a lot of tapas, and drank a lot of beer and sangria to replenish the fluids we lost in the sub tropical sun. If you ever want to know...

Should the Blue Jays be Sellers at the Trade Deadline?

As we near the end of July, the Toronto Blue Jays are a .500 team. Sometimes a little more than that, sometimes a little bit less, but overall they’re winning as much as they’re losing. As a result their chances of making the postseason sit at 46.2% according to Baseball Prospectus. As fans and media await trades for reinforcements to this proficient offense, should the team...

The Blue Jays’ ongoing search for a starting pitcher

The American League playoff hunt is as tight as ever and with the deadline looming a week away, teams are grasping for that one piece they believe will push them over the edge. For the Blue Jays, that piece is a starting pitcher and they haven’t quite been lucky enough to snare one yet. Just 5.5 games out of the East and three back in the Wild Card, the Blue Jays have the offense...

Jose Bautista calls out Colin Cowherd for insipid remarks about Dominican ballplayers

One of baseball’s most vocal sluggers is not happy with Colin Cowherd for the radio host’s negative portrayal of Dominican players, and the MLB Players Association is reportedly equally upset. Cowherd, who just this week announced his intention to leave ESPN Radio after 10 years, devoted part of a segment Thursday to the apparent simplicity of baseball, saying there’s...

Toronto Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin righting the ship

For most of the first half of the 2015 season, Toronto Blue Jays’ catcher, Russell Martin, was statistically one of the best catchers in baseball. By June 15, Martin had a .285 batting average (.368 on-base percentage), 10 home runs, 12 doubles, 34 runs batted in, 39 runs scored, and three stolen bases. However, Martin’s season began to spiral after that. On July 19, Martin...

What Would It Take For The Blue Jays To Re-Sign Mark Buehrle?

Buehrle is having arguably one of the best seasons in his 16-year career as his contract is set to expire at seasons end. Buehrle has hinted about retirement and some prognosticators predict the 36-year old may...

Will the Blue Jays Be Active at the Trade Deadline This Year?

As a Toronto Blue Jays fan, things aren’t always easy. It’s no secret that baseball in Canada isn’t as big there as it is in the United States. But nevertheless, if you’re a loyal follower of the team, things haven’t exactly gone as planned since 1993 when Joe Carter hit one of the most memorable home runs in Postseason History and raised the roof off of Rogers Centre....

Fantasy Roundup: Scouting Drew Hutchison

Entering the preseason I thought Drew Hutchison would be a sneaky play for 200-plus strikeouts. That may not sound like a lot, but only 13 pitchers accomplished that feat last year. At the time I wrote that piece I didn’t think I was going out on a limb with that prediction because he finished 20th among qualified starting pitchers in strikeout rate (23.4%). A big reason for the...

Blue Jays need rookies to keep producing for success in 2015

The Toronto Blue Jays (42-39, 1 GB in the AL East) entered this season in a full-blown youth movement. Yes, the team still had important veteran players, but the club opened with six rookies on its 25-man-roster. Three of those rookies didn’t make it very long. Miguel Castro, pegged as the closer early in the season, started off hot, but struggled and was quickly optioned...
