Will the Toronto Blue Jays Ever Experience October Again?

As the season dwindles down and the Toronto Blue Jays complete yet another season that ends at 162 games, I cannot help but wonder how much more the city of Toronto, this great nation of Canada, and the loyal fans abroad can endure. It’s great that we have two World Series titles in our trophy case but we have not made the playoffs since then, so what does that say about the front...

Blue Jays' future could hinge on team president Beeston's

The futures of Blue Jays manager John Gibbons and general manager Alex Anthopoulos are not in immediate question. But the team's entire dynamic could change if team president Paul Beeston departs -- a legitimate possibility, according to major-league sources. Beeston, 69, is in the final year of his contract. He is a strong supporter of Anthopoulos, sources say, and Anthopoulos...

‘Really close’ Blue Jays not trading Bautista, Encarnacion, GM says: Arthur

When Alex Anthopoulos first became a general manager, Oakland’s Billy Beane gave him some advice: You will never be able to stop. There will always be something to do, something else, and you will never get caught up enough in any one thing to stop and take a deep breath. It didn’t quite resonate with Anthopoulos, not really. He is four years in now, and he gets it. His Toronto...

Off-Season Decisions: Mark Buehrle

Mark Buehrle set a pretty historic milestone yesterday in his second year as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays. With his 8.0 inning, 10 strikeout performance yesterday (September 24th) against the Seattle Mariners, Buehrle became the 7th pitcher since 1901 to pitch 14 or more seasons with 200 or more innings pitched. A remarkable feat for Buehrle who had an up and down season for...

Infield defence a big concern for Blue Jays

With Brett Lawrie destined to miss 92 of 162 games, Toronto's inner defence suffered dramatically. Lawrie was absent from nearly 60% of his team's games and it showed. His range at third base provided a comfort zone for shortstop Jose Reyes, whose range has shrunk. Whatever the reasons, infield defence is a serious concern going forward. "I think part of it was turf...

End of season post-mortem: Toronto Blue Jays

It wasn’t supposed to be this way for the Toronto Blue Jays. After a depressing 2013, the Jays played like they were shot out of a cannon to start the 2014 season. Their season peaked on June 6th, when Toronto was 38-24, six games clear of the Yankees in the AL East. It was all downhill from there – Toronto scuffled their way to a 42-53 mark after that, better than just four...

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons likely back for 2015

The morning line on John Gibbons: If Alex Anthopoulos is back as general manager of the Blue Jays then Gibbons will return as manager next season. That may not be the right call or one that will appease fans in any way but it’s the call that is almost certainly to be made. The only way Gibbons will be fired, I’m told, is if one of two possible scenarios come true: 1) If Anthopoulos...

WATCH: Melky Cabrera freaks over sound of thunder

During Wednesday night’s Blue Jays-Rays game at Tropicana Field, we saw something we don’t see too often at a domed stadium – a rain delay. Prior to the delay, a clap of thunder scared the bejeezus out of Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera. Yeah, I think I could watch that a time or two. As for the delay itself, it wasn’t technically a rain delay – it was caused by a block...
