Blown save for Tyler Clippard, Jays lose

Blown save for Tyler Clippard, Jays lose

That game had everything except for a Jays win. Angels 5 Blue Jays 3 Tyler Clippard was terrible in the 9th. With 1 out, he walked the bases loaded and then gave up a game tying single. Another single (thought a drown in infield and 2 more scored. Neither ball was hit well but, you load the bases, you don’t leave yourseft room for error. Jake Petricka came in and gave up another hit before getting out of the inning. By then it was too late. The bottom of the inning was nuts too. Dwight Smith led off with a single, bringing the tying run to the plate, then Curtis Granderson doubled. I...

Did the Mets think they owed the Blue Jays a bunch of runs?

Did the Mets think they owed the Blue Jays a bunch of runs?

Frustrated incorporated. Today the Mets got soaked, rocked, and beaten at Citi Field, losing to the Blue Jays 12-1. In a game that perfectly matched the weather, the Mets played about as poorly as they could, showing no signs of a team that put up a dozen runs the night before. Zack Wheeler started off the game strongly, striking out both Curtis Granderson and Josh Donaldson to begin his day. However, the third batter of the game, Justin Smoak, put a home run over the wall in right-center field to put his team on the board. Jays starter J.A. Happ looked sharp early on,...

I’d like a dozen runs to go, please

I’d like a dozen runs to go, please

Wait scoring more than three runs is allowed? The Mets opened up their home stand in desperate need of some offense and a win, and they got both in a 12-2 laugher against the Blue Jays. With the God of Thunder on the mound and @BringerOfRain20 in the visiting dugout, naturally the start of this game was delayed due to severe thunderstorms. After almost an hour and a half delay the game started and a familiar face stepped into the batter’s box. Curtis Granderson got a nice tribute and deserves all the attention he will receive in this brief visit, but unfortunately he also...

Mets begin interleague play against the Blue Jays

Mets begin interleague play against the Blue Jays

The Mets welcome back old friend Curtis Granderson and the Blue Jays for a quick two-game interleague matchup. The New York Mets (19-18) head back home after an eventful road trip to Cincinnati and Philadelphia for a quick two-game interleague series with the Toronto Blue Jays (21-20). After trading Matt Harvey to the Reds and gaining a new catcher in Devin Mesoraco, the Mets come home looking a little different as they welcome an old friend back to Citi Field. On Friday night, Jake Arrieta was having his way with the Mets lineup, shutting them out for 7 and 1⁄3 innings. Steven Matz had a...

Curtis Granderson’s years with the Mets should be remembered fondly

Curtis Granderson’s years with the Mets should be remembered fondly

The extremely likable outfielder returns to New York as a Blue Jay. The the ripe old baseball age of 37, outfielder Curtis Granderson is still playing the game. Having spent nearly four full seasons with the Mets from 2014 through 2017, he finished last season with the Dodgers before hitting free agency. In a very slow offseason that saw players’ salaries greatly depressed, Granderson signed a one-year, $5 million contract with the Blue Jays, his fifth major league team. While he was a Met, Granderson always felt a little bit under-appreciated. Signed to a four-year, $60 million contract...

Thursday’s lineup

Thursday’s lineup

Curtis Granderson is back at the top of the order for the Blue Jays. Teoscar Hernandez moves to cleanup. Kendrys Morales bats 8th. I’m glad that Granderson is back, but I’m not thrilled that Dalton Pompey and Anthony Alford will, most likely, end up sitting more than I would like. But then that’s life. I thought Pompey and Alford looked pretty good in their handful of at bats. #BlueJays vs #Mariners ... pic.twitter.com/1Gtg3kVFrn— Shi Davidi (@ShiDavidi) May 10, 2018

A big 8th inning powers the Blue Jays to a win

A big 8th inning powers the Blue Jays to a win

Mariners 2 Blue Jays 5 It took us a while to get scoring, but that 4 run 8th felt like a dozen runs. About time we put up a crooked number. In the 8th we had doubles from Josh Donaldson, Yangervis Solarte and Justin Smoak. Then an almost double from Kevin Pillar, he was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double. Then Russell Martin doubled. After an out (I’m disappointed Gurriel), Luke Maile then singled home Martin (nice slide Russell). Curtis Granderson struck out to end the inning, his first at bat in a little while. Up until the 8th, we only had 1 run, a monster homer to center...

Wednesday Bantering: Blue Jays roster thoughts

Wednesday Bantering: Blue Jays roster thoughts

Since I don’t want to talk about Roberto Osuna, let’s talk about the roster, and things that might happen between now and the end of the season. Let’s start with guys who are injured: Curtis Granderson: Apparently he was running yesterday and he’s about ready to play. I guess that he would DH for a bit before playing outfield, or that’s what I’d do with him. Of course, I like the idea of Alford and Pompey playing as much as possible. They both play good defense and, well, I think it’s time to see what they can do. Aledmys Diaz: They told us he was out of the walking boot....

Blue Jays’ Anthony Alford reportedly set to join team

According to Shi Davidi of Sportsnet, Anthony Alford will be joining the Toronto Blue Jays today according to industry sources. If Anthony Alford is indeed promoted it would likely signal a DL stint for outfielder Curtis Granderson who left last nights contest in the first inning with an apparent hamstring injury after hitting a double and […] Blue Jays’ Anthony Alford reportedly set to join team - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Anthony Alford to join Blue Jays

Anthony Alford to join Blue Jays

Shi Davidi tweeted that Anthony Alford will be joining the Blue Jays today in Tampa. That suggests that Curtis Granderson is out, at least for a couple of days. It might not necessarily mean that Granderson is going to the DL. Perhaps they will send a reliever out, if Granderson is day-to-day. Tim Mayza pitched the last two days, so they might be thinking of sending him out. Alford is hitting .154/.182/.143 in 19 games at Buffalo, not exactly numbers that should get someone promoted, but such is life. If Granderson was to go onto the DL, then Dwight Smith could have been called up, which...

Blue Jays: The best way this could play out for Dalton Pompey

Dalton Pompey is going to get some playing time the Blue Jays in the near future, and it could be a live audition for the Canadian outfielder. The Blue Jays started the day with Randal Grichuk and Steve Pearce on the disabled list from their outfield picture, and Curtis Granderson had to leave in the […] Blue Jays: The best way this could play out for Dalton Pompey - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Rays 6, Jays 2: It’s Happ-ening

Rays 6, Jays 2: It’s Happ-ening

Three extra base hits for Field, and a hot night for Yarbrough. Some might blame it on the rain, and the long-delayed conclusion to the Blue Jays doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians. They might tell you that a late night on getaway day, a lack of sleep, a lost off-day are all to blame for how the Jays fared tonight. Then again, some might just say the Rays outplayed them. In the first inning, when Curtis Granderson scored on a sac fly from Teoscar Hernandez, things weren’t off to a great start. Rays bullpen starter Andrew Kittredge looked uneven early on, giving up two hits and a...

Friday Bantering: Pompey Up

Friday Bantering: Pompey Up

Dalton Pompey is being called up to the Blue Jays today. Dalton is hitting .244/.313/.366 with 5 steals, and 1 homer back in Buffalo in 10 games. Before that he was on a rehab assignment in Dunedin hitting .400/.471/.600 in 4 games. I’m expecting that he’ll be in a platoon with Curtis Granderson. Dwight Smith Jr. had a good day yesterday, but being a LHB he doesn’t fit with Granderson. I’m glad to see Dalton coming up. I hope he gets to stay for about. Since he wasn’t down in Buffalo for 20 days (after the rehab time) he hasn’t burned an option yet this year. There are more...

Mystery solved: Pearce was out with a ‘tight ribcage’

Mystery solved: Pearce was out with a ‘tight ribcage’

Arash Madani tells us the reason why Blue Jays DH Steve Pearce was scratched tonight. His rib cage ‘tightened up’ during batting practice. I have no idea that that means, my rib cage has always been at the same tightness level, at least as far as I know. And I don’t know if that means he’ll be out again tomorrow, but at least we have a reason for it now. Why wouldn’t Gibby say something before the game? Likely to keep the Twins from knowing he wouldn’t be able to come into the game. But, it didn’t stop them from bringing in a lefty to face Curtis Granderson. Get better...
