Blue Jays mid-term report card: Bo Bichette

Photo by Mark Blinch/ Bo Bichette isn’t having the season we’d like to see. He is a streak hitter, but he hasn’t had a long good streak yet. I’m hoping it will happen soon. Bo’s getting on base 30% of the time, so it might be time to think about moving him from the number two spot. But I do understand, they need Bo to hit, if he doesn’t things things aren’t going to go well. He’s gotta do better. Standard Batting G PA AB R H 2B 3B ...

Blue Jays need to add to the bullpen before the trade deadline

The Toronto Blue Jays won in exciting fashion last night in Milwaukee, collecting 13 hits to the tune of nine runs while getting contributions from pretty much the entire order except for Bo Bichette and Santiago Espinal in a weird off night for the top of the lineup. On the mound was right-hander Alek Manoah, […] Blue Jays need to add to the bullpen before the trade deadline - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Hyun Jin Ryu’s large contract was still worth it for the Blue Jays

The Toronto Blue Jays finished the 2019 season going 67-95, fourth in the AL East. While the record certainly was not great, Toronto had a lot to look forward to. Top prospects Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette, and Cavan Biggio all debuted and showed promise.

Tuesday Bantering: Vlad AL Player of the Week

Photo by Quinn Harris/ And other Jays stuff I wonder if today, just to be different, our pitchers could hold the opponent to half a dozen runs or less today. It is funny, early in the season, the batters couldn’t hit. Now the pitchers can’t pitch. Vladimir Guerrero was voted AL Player of the Week. He hit .407/.500/.778 for the week, with 3 home runs and 7 RBI. And Vlad, Alejandro Kirk, Bo Bichette and George Springer (well, actually, Springer is third among AL outfielders, but that still would have him in the game) are leading in their positions in All-Star...

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports Going for the series W. This is awesome. Coach Mark Budzinski always tosses a ball to Vladimir Guerrero Jr when he jogs off the field, so he has it for next inning.

Right after he was hit on the hand. | Photo by Vaughn Ridley/ Orioles 6 Blue Jays 5 Not a good night for Yusei Kikuchi. 4 innings, plus a batter, 5 hits, 4 earned, 4 walks, 4 strikeouts, 2 home runs. One of the runs wasn’t really earned. In the fourth, with two out and a runner on first, Robinson Chirinos popped a fly ball down the left-field line. Unfortunately, Lourdes Gurriel was shifted way over into the gap, and the ball fell out of his and Bo Bichette’s, reach. Shifts are successful a bunch, but not this time. The other runs against, he earned. Walk and a...
