Better know your Blue Jays 40-man: Teoscar Hernandez

Better know your Blue Jays 40-man: Teoscar Hernandez

Teoscar Hernandez came over to the Blue Jays, along with Norichika Aoki, from the Astros, for Francisco Liriano, at the 2017 deadline. I think we can count the trade as a win. Liriano pitched in 20 games for the Astros, all out of the bullpen. He was not great, 4.40 ERA, 14.1 innings, 14 hit, 10 walks and 11 strikeouts. After the season he signed with the Tigers as a free agent. Aoki’s time with the Jays didn’t last long, he was DFAed August 29th, and then released. I couldn’t understand the move at the time. Aoki was hitting .281/.294/.594 with 3 homers, it didn’t seem like he was...

Blue Jays: Starting Freddy Galvis at shortstop comes at Gurriel’s expense

The Blue Jays have apparently told Freddy Galvis that he’ll be the starting shortstop this year, and with no disrespect to the veteran, I believe that decision is a mistake. The 2019 season is supposed to be all about rebuilding and sticking to the “process”, at least as far as we’ve repeatedly heard from Ross […] Blue Jays: Starting Freddy Galvis at shortstop comes at Gurriel’s expense - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The Potential Greatness of the Toronto Maple Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs are a potentially great team.

William Nylander in a slump? […] The Potential Greatness of the Toronto Maple Leafs - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Blue Jays: Ross Atkins is really being tested already this spring

Between Marcus Stroman’s comments to the media on Sunday and the situation with Vladimir Guerrero Jr’s eventual debut, Ross Atkins is already being tested this spring and it will be interesting to see how he responds.

Toronto Maple Leafs to open talks with Kasperi Kapanen this week

The Toronto Maple Leafs have a number of important free agents to negotiate with this summer and Kasperi Kapanen is a top priority.

Toronto Maple Leafs: A Post-Departure Ode to Sam Gagner

He may not have ever belonged to the Toronto Maple Leafs, but the departure of Sam Gagner will certainly be felt within the organization. Sam Gagner had every right to treat his brief tenure with the Toronto Marlies this season like an insult. He was never supposed to be there.

On Marcus Stroman

Marcus Stroman talked to the media today, apparently for 20 minutes, with some scattershot complaints. Shi Davidi, among several, wrote about it. Let’s look at some of his comments: “I’ve been waiting to sign a long-term deal” Haven’t we all Marcus. I’m ready for one myself. I figure ten years and $350 million would work for me. But, I’m willing to negotiate, that’s why I’m paid in cheese doodles. If I was Marcus I don’t think I’d want a long term deal after last season. I don’t think his value is at the top of it’s arc. If I’m him, I’m looking to have a good...

Leafs’ Kadri as trip end nears: “We are able to flip the page pretty quick”

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Nazem Kadri isn’t worried that the Maple Leafs’ effort on Saturday night against the Arizona Coyotes will be anything more than a one-off. In fact, the Leafs centre is rather sure of it. “Absolutely not,” Kadri said. “We have that confidence and that swagger to be able to brush ones like this […]
