Lots of offense, Jays beat Red Sox

Red Sox 5 Blue Jays 8 What a difference a day makes. Tonight was much more fun than yesterday. It is always great to beat Boston. We got plenty of hits tonight, 12. And a couple of them were home runs: Teoscar Hernandez had an opposite field solo homer in the 3rd inning and Randal Grichuk had a 2-run homer in the 5th. And we scored without homers: 2 in the first, Curtis Granderson and Devon Travis started us off with walks, Justin Smoak singled home Granderson (giving Smoak a 13 game hitting streak) and Travis scored on a Grichuk ground out. 1 in the second: Russell Martin walked,...

Blue Jays should include Curtis Granderson in the rebuild

As the Toronto Blue Jays look toward a rebuild and youth movement next season perhaps a player of Curtis Granderson’s ilk could be utilized to shape the clubhouse and mentor the up and comers on what it takes to succeed at the major league level. The baseball experts all forecasted that Curtis Granderson would be […] Blue Jays should include Curtis Granderson in the rebuild - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Not much news going on ahead of our series against the Red Sox, so there is just some bits and pieces: Stephen Brunt explains why he thinks John Gibbons and the Toronto Blue Jays may part ways before the 2019 season. Shi Davidi has a nice story on how the a trade has reunited Brandon Drury with his mentor Troy Tulowitzki. To be honest, given how unlikely it is we will see Tulo on the field before the next century, maybe its time he took up a full time role like this?

Toronto Blue Jays: Curtis Granderson deserves Heart and Hustle Award

Curtis Granderson has been named the Toronto Blue Jays’ Heart and Hustle Award recipient by the MLBPAA and it’s thoroughly deserved. The chances are Curtis Granderson is one-and-done this year with the Toronto Blue Jays, whether he’s traded this month or becomes a free agent at the end of the season. However, he’s still managed to make an impact […] Toronto Blue Jays: Curtis Granderson deserves Heart and Hustle Award - Tip of the Tower - Tip of the Tower - A Toronto Sports Site - Maple Leafs, Blue Jays, Raptors, Toronto FC, Raptors and Argonauts

GameThread Game #111: Blue Jays at Mariners

Somehow, the Blue Jays are going for the four game sweep. Seattle friends I have met up with have told me many times how they aren’t happy with us right now. I keep telling them I don’t know who this team is, because they sure aren’t the team I saw a month ago. Here are the lineups for today. This gal is happy to see Granderson in the lead off spot, and Tom is happy to see Devon Travis in the number two spot. Morales is back in, and Brandon Drury and Teoscar Hernandez will sit.

Blue Jays Roster Moves: Pillar Back, Cumpton Optioned

Blue Jays Roster Moves: Pillar Back, Cumpton Optioned

Kevin Pillar is back, far quicker than any of us expected. It will be 3 weeks tomorrow since he went on the DL. We were told he would be evaluated after 3 weeks, but he’s beat that. I hope he really is 100%. Brandon Cumpton gets optioned back to Buffalo. He got into a game in Buffalo, but that was the total of his workload since being called up. Pillar will bat 9th tonight. Travis will bat second. I was hoping that Dalton Pompey would get called up, either while Pillar was out, or after an expected trade of Curtis Granderson. Instead he’s been suspended at Buffalo. All they are saying...

Yankees had some interest in Andrew McCutchen, but he’s likely staying put

Yankees had some interest in Andrew McCutchen, but he’s likely staying put

Cross another candidate for the Yankees’ outfield spot off the list. The hunt for a backup outfielder continues. The Yankees have expressed interest in just about every outfielder said to be available. They remain in talks with the Marlins for Cameron Maybin, and have discussed Curtis Granderson with the Blue Jays. Earlier, it was reported that the Yankees had “soft interest” in Andrew McCutchen, but it sounds like the Giants have no intention of moving him. McCutchen, 31, is far removed from his MVP caliber years. That said, he’s still a productive batter, hitting .258/.352/.407...

Yankees “showing interest” in Curtis Granderson, Andrew McCutchen

After shoring up pitching depth, could the outfield be next? The Devil works hard, but Brian Cashman works harder. The dust hasn’t even settled on the trades the Yankee GM executed this afternoon, and there are rumors swirling that the team is looking to augment their outfield depth. Jon Morosi tweeted earlier that the Yankees are looking into a reunion with Curtis Granderson, and just filed this story with MLB.com about Andrew McCutchen. The two veteran outfielders have had similar seasons in 2018, and would both fill in for the Yankees as a potential power bat on the bench, and a...

Blue Jays beat White Sox 10-5; Lopez’s struggles continue

Lopey didn’t have it, but Matt Davidson did! Tonight’s 10-5 loss won’t go down as one of the greatest White Sox efforts in franchise history — in fact it will likely be deemed one of the worst. The first inning set the tone for what was to be a disappointingly adventurous night for the Sox. The team’s starting pitcher for tonight, Reynaldo Lopez, gave up a solo home run to notorious White Sox killer Curtis Granderson on the second pitch of the ball game. The third pitch? Another home run — this time from Lourdes Gurriel Jr, his sixth of the year. Two batters later, Lopez...
