Blue Jays: A healthy Happ is huge in 2018

The Blue Jays have received some very strong pitching from J.A. Happ, especially lately as he’s been especially dominant in his last five starts. The Blue Jays had an incredible performance from their starting rotation in 2016, so it’s hard to see the upside of what’s happened in Toronto this season. Without reliving the negatives […] Blue Jays: A healthy Happ is huge in 2018 - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Not with a bang but a whimper: J.A. Happ-ens to get skunked in 1-0 loss

Not with a bang but a whimper: J.A. Happ-ens to get skunked in 1-0 loss

Royals 1 Blue Jays 0 Two. That's how many hits the Jays managed tonight: a ground ball up the middle by Kendrys Morales leading off the 3rd inning (erased on a double play), and a bloop single by Darwin Barney leading off the 5th inning that Melky Cabrera couldn't quite get to. And following that, the last 15 batters of the game went down in a row. Two crummy hits. Three walks too, if you're looking for any type of silver lining, not that it made a Whit (Merrifield) of difference. No runner even got to second base tonight, as the Jays were didn't even come close to the realm of seriously...

Blue Jays batter Boston

Blue Jays batter Boston

3 homers and plenty of runs. Blue Jays 10 Red Sox 4 I will admit, there are few things I like better than the Red Sox losing. Blue Jays winning might be one. Both in the same game? That’s pretty tough to beat. J.A. Happ did a pretty good job, if you ignore that he seemed to be channeling the Happ from a few years ago, the one that would get a couple of strikes and then waste pitches until the count was full. He came out of the game after 5.2 innings and 106 pitches. He allowed 6 hits, 3 runs, only 1 earned, 3 walks with 3 strikeouts. He gave up his unearned runs in the 2nd inning. The...

Bad offence, defense and relief, Jays lose

Bad offence, defense and relief, Jays lose

Yes this is a recording Red Sox 7 Blue Jays 1 You wanna just go cut and paste any of the recaps from the last couple of weeks and throw it in here? I’m pretty sure we’ve had a dozen games in a row like this: Good starting pitching, crappy relief pitching, crappy defense and no offense. J.A. Happ threw 6 innings. He allowed 4 hits, 1 earned (a solo Hanley Ramirez homer), 4 walks (Happ wasn’t happy with the umpire’s strike zone) and 2 strikeouts. He pitched well. On most of the walks, ball four was a pitch that could have been called either way. But, our bullpen was awful: Tom...
MLB Trade Rumors Aug 30, 2017

East Notes: Happ, Dickey, Mets, Price, Phillies

It’s already known that the Blue Jays pulled right-hander Marco Estrada back from waivers after he was claimed (reportedly by the Yankees) earlier this month, and FanRag’s Jon Heyman reports that the Jays also pulled left-hander J.A. Happ back off revocable trade waivers at some point in August. As such, he’s ineligible to be traded…

MLB trade rumors: Blue Jays pull back J.A. Happ from revocable trade waivers

If the Blue Jays are going to trade J.A. Happ, they’ll have to wait until the offseason to do so. Blue Jays left-handed starter J.A. Happ was claimed on revocable trade waivers and pulled back, meaning that he’ll remain in Toronto through the end of the season. Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported the news on Wednesday. Happ, who finished sixth in AL Cy Young voting after a tremendous 2016 season, has had a bit of a down year in 2017, posting a 4.10 ERA and 1.36 ERA with 108 strikeouts and 34 walks over 107.2 innings. He missed roughly six weeks near the beginning of the season with...
