Blue Jays: Jose Bautista signs one-year deal with Mets

In a very fast sequence of events, the New York have signed recently released, former Blue Jay Jose Bautista to a one-year major league deal earlier this afternoon. The rumors are true. Jose Bautista is a Met. Boy, that was fast. As our own Clayton Richer mentioned less than 24 hours ago, the Mets were […] Blue Jays: Jose Bautista signs one-year deal with Mets - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Morales homers and Happ was great, Blue Jays win

Angels 3 Blue Jays 5 Another terrific start from J.A. Happ. 7 innings, just 3 hits, 3 walks, 5 strikeouts and 2 earned. It was kind of unfortunate that 2 of those hits, and 1 of the walk were grouped together in the 4th inning (and even that inning would have gone better if Josh Donaldson had gone for the double play instead of trying to tag the runner going past him, he still got an out but we might have had 2). Happ didn’t have the huge strikeout numbers he was getting, earlier in the season, but he was pretty economical with his pitches, finishing 7 innings at 99 pitches. Ryan Tepera...

He scored a stoppage time […] The post Orlando City striker Stéfano Pinho puts rough Toronto FC performance in the past appeared first on Pro Soccer USA.

SIMMONS: What now for Leafs GM Dubas and the Shanaplan?

For the four years Brendan Shanahan has been in charge of the Toronto Maple Leafs, there has never been reason to doubt him or his nicknamed Shanaplan. There is now.

Leafs GM Kyle Dubas posts ‘help wanted’ sign as Hunter, Lamoriello leave

In hockey parlance, centreman Kyle Dubas just lost both his experienced wingers, leaving the Maple Leafs hockey office suddenly short-handed. Yet the departures of general manager Lou Lamoriello and Dubas’s fellow assistant Mark Hunter within a day of each other was not a shock, nor will Toronto’s potential to contend for the Stanley Cup in […]

Blue Jays Roster Moves: Devon Travis Up

The Toronto Blue Jays announced today that Devon Travis has been recalled from Buffalo and will be active for tonight’s game. Travis was optioned to Buffalo on April 29th, batting just .148/.212/.246 in 66 plate appearances at the time. His production in Buffalo was only marginally better, batting .210/.234/.274 over 64 plate appearances. However, Travis does leave AAA on an 8 game hit streak. Travis was quick to praise the Buffalo Bison’s hitting coach Corey Hart, stating in a recent interview: “As a hitting coach in professional baseball, a huge key is understanding your players and...

Poll Time: Do you approve of the job Mark Shapiro and Ross Atkins are doing?

We haven’t done one of these in a while, and it’s likely not fair to do it in the middle (hopefully closer to the end) of a Blue Jays slump, but I thought we’d do it anyway. I’ll give my couple of complaints: The thing that will always drive me nuts about baseball front offices is indecision. The Blue Jays front office....right now they seem to be running a master class in indecision. For shortstop, after the Diaz injury the Jays: Used Lourdes Gurriel (he was close by, playing second after they shipped out Travis). Gurriel, had a bad day, out he goes, up comes Richard Urena...

Mark Hunter is gone, is this a management failure of the Leafs?

Is the sky falling, and the Leafs are doomed, or is renewal just a part of spring? Oh man, I'm so here for the incoming "THE BOY KING HAS NOW COST US MARK HUNTER WHO'S NEXT, BABCOCK?!" takes— Greg Wyshynski (@wyshynski) May 22, 2018 Greg Wyshynski isn’t so much mocking hot takes as he’s launching a preemptive anti-take that’s still steaming hot. Both the idea that Kyle Dubas’s age has hidden costs because old people are too thin-skinned to work for him, and the contrary position that his age is irrelevant, are not very nuanced positions, to put it politely. There is a real...

Toronto FC’s Forgotten Five of 2017: Where are they now?

Catching up with players who helped Toronto FC in 2017, but are now working elsewhere. We are close to the one-third mark of the 2018 MLS season. No need to delve into what the Reds need to do over their remaining 24 games, but a three-letter word beginning with “w” and ending with “n” should be enough of a hint. That’s the plight of our current Reds. But what about the jettisoned Reds of the season past? Hopefully, we all still remember players like Brandon Aubrey, Oyvind Alseth, Armando Cooper, Raheem Edwards and Steven Beitashour. No doubt these players are still keeping tabs...
