Blue Jays: C’mon Gibby, you’re making this difficult

The Blue Jays dropped the series opener against the Royals on Friday night, blowing a 4-1 lead in the ninth inning, and watched Jason Grilli surrender a walk-off hit while Roberto Osuna went unused. Let me start out by saying I’ve always been, and likely always will be a fan of John Gibbons. I’ve always […] Blue Jays: C’mon Gibby, you’re making this difficult - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Royals 5, Blue Jays 4: Toronto’s refusal to cut ties with Jason Grilli burns them again

Royals 5, Blue Jays 4: Toronto’s refusal to cut ties with Jason Grilli burns them again

This recap is brought to you by the letters “D”, “F”, and “A”. I don’t know what it’s going to take for the Blue Jays front office to realize Jason Grilli is done, but boy did the organization’s loyalty to this man burn them tonight. Despite the obvious writing on the wall weeks ago, the Blue Jays not only continued to employ a human gas can in their bullpen, but tonight John Gibbons decided to throw him into the fire during the highest leverage at bat of the entire game. With two outs, runners at the corners, and the Blue Jays clinging to a 4-3 ninth inning lead, Grilli...

Jays Activate Pearce, place Coghlan on DL

Jays Activate Pearce, place Coghlan on DL

The Blue Jays, as we were told us they would, activated Steve Pearce from the DL. To make room on the roster they have placed Chris Coghlan on the DL with a ‘wrist contusion’ Coghlan last played June 7th, 9 days ago, so maybe it isn’t a pretend injury. The Coghlan injury saves Dwight Smith from a trip back to Buffalo. I’m glad Smith gets to stay, I was worried that he’d have one game and be banished again. I figured the team would keep the 8-man bullpen. I hope, at some point they go back to a 7-man pen, but, with Jason Grilli in the ‘only use in blowouts’ role, it is tough to...

Blue Jays First Round Flashback: Jason Grilli

With the MLB amateur draft in full swing, I decided to look at some of the former first-round draft picks on the Toronto Blue Jays current roster. Including the skipper, the Blue Jays have nine former first rounders on their current squad. The veteran reliever Jason Grilli is the highest drafted player on the entire […] Blue Jays First Round Flashback: Jason Grilli - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The Blue Jays must confront the ugly truth enveloping Jason Grilli

The Blue Jays must confront the ugly truth enveloping Jason Grilli

Oh baseball, you heartless wench. At some point during the top of the eighth inning of Saturday’s 7-0 loss to the Yankees, the feeling at Rogers Centre turned from disappointing to uncomfortable. This wasn’t just the Blue Jays losing a game to the division leader anymore; it was a Jason Grilli possibly watching his career come to an end. Oh, I’m not suggesting he’ll never throw another pitch in the majors. Veteran relievers with high strike out rates who are popular in the clubhouse probably get more last chances than any other breed of baseball player, but Saturday afternoon’s...

Blue Jays: What we don’t want to admit about Grilli

Jason Grilli tied a franchise record on Saturday afternoon against the New York Yankees, but unfortunately it wasn’t the type of record to celebrate. It’s been an awfully difficult season for Jason Grilli in 2017. In a season that he’s had plenty of bad outings, Saturday was probably the low point of the campaign for […] Blue Jays: What we don’t want to admit about Grilli - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Joe Biagini and Jason Grilli have opposite results in Toronto Blue Jays’ 7-0 loss to New York Yankees

Newly transitioned starter Joe Biagini and veteran reliever Jason Grilli had two very different outings in the Jays’ 7-0 Saturday loss to the Yankees. While the Toronto Blue Jays wait patiently for Aaron Sanchez to fully overcome his lingering blister issues, Joe Biagini has quickly become a force to be reckoned with after transitioning from […] The post Joe Biagini and Jason Grilli have opposite results in Toronto Blue Jays’ 7-0 loss to New York Yankees appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Yankees whitewash Blue Jays 7-0 despite strong start from Biagini

Yankees whitewash Blue Jays 7-0 despite strong start from Biagini

Yankees 7 Blue Jays 0 In a different universe or space-time continuum, Joe Biagini could have thrown 7 shutout innings - or maybe even eight - before turning the ball over to the high leverage relievers to engage in a bullpen battle until the bats could maybe eke out a run. Instead, in reality, Biagini ended up giving three runs, while the Jays were stiffled at the plate. The Jays trailed 3-0 going to the 8th so John Gibbons went to Jason Grilli, and he got absolutely shelled. Biagini was really, really good against a tough lineup. He retired seven of the first eight batters, allowing just...
