Blue Jays: Is Pearce’s OF defence any worse than Saunders’?

Among the position battles for the Blue Jays in Spring Training this year, the left fielder’s job appears to be up for grabs, and could fall into the lap of new acquisition, Steve Pearce. The Blue Jays entered this offseason with two big holes in their outfield picture, as both Jose Bautista and Michael Saunders […] Blue Jays: Is Pearce’s OF defence any worse than Saunders’? - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Blue Jays were too hasty according to Encarnacion

When asked about his first real free agency experience, Edwin Encarnacion was pretty candid, admitting that the Blue Jays were his first choice all along. The Blue Jays dealt with arguably their most difficult free agency period in franchise history, facing the prospect of losing both Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion. Fast forward to today, and […] Blue Jays were too hasty according to Encarnacion - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Blue Jays’ Bautista talks free agency, future strategy

On the weekend, Jose Bautista talked about this past offseason, how he would handle things differently in hindsight, and his excitement regarding the season ahead. It was an interesting offseason, both for the Blue Jays and Jose Bautista. When free agency opened, it was widely expected the Blue Jays would only be able to retain one […] Blue Jays’ Bautista talks free agency, future strategy - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Why Dalton Pompey has almost no chance to make the the Blue Jays Opening Day roster

Why Dalton Pompey has almost no chance to make the the Blue Jays Opening Day roster

There’s a long list of players who have to make the Opening Day roster if the Blue Jays want to keep them in the organization, and Dalton Pompey isn’t on it. I’m going to share three personal beliefs I have about Dalton Pompey’s situation with you that together should seem counterintuitive: I believe Dalton Pompey is currently the third best outfielder the Blue Jays have anywhere in their organization (trailing only Kevin Pillar and Jose Bautista). I believe Dalton Pompey will NOT be on the 25-man roster when the Blue Jays open their season in Baltimore on April 3. I believe the...

Blue Jays’ Bautista open to positional flexibility

 The Blue Jays re-signed Jose Bautsta to return as their right fielder, as he has for the last 8 years. However, the veteran slugger is open to playing wherever it helps the team win. The Blue Jays entered the offseason with a lot of question marks, as their slugging duo of both Jose Bautista and […] Blue Jays’ Bautista open to positional flexibility - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Why the Blue Jays are right to bet on Jose Bautista

Less than a year removed from his well-publicized comments regarding his upcoming contract situation, Jose Bautista is back in Toronto on a one year deal. Half a year ago, it seemed like a long shot that Jose Bautista would be back with the Blue Jays in 2017. Most of us remember when his camp was […] Why the Blue Jays are right to bet on Jose Bautista - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Better know your Blue Jays 40-man: Jose Bautista

Better know your Blue Jays 40-man: Jose Bautista

Things change in a year, just ask Jose Bautista. A year ago we were talking about what kind of extension to offer him. Peter Gammons was telling us how Jose was going to play into his 40’s, because of his workout regiment (I really think Gammons was trying to sell Red Sox fans on the idea of signing him when he became a free agent). Everything was bright and cheery. Then Jose has a down season, filled with injuries, and he can’t even get a guaranteed multi-year contract. There is a Blue Rodeo song called Bad Timing, which sounds like Bautista’s life with contract talks. Last time...

Jose Bautista again the target of verbal onslaught from Orioles

It would appear that the Baltimore Orioles and their fans have a personal vendetta centred on a certain “bat flipping” slugger who recently resigned with the Toronto Blue Jays. Jose Bautista once again became the centre of attention with yet another player openly voicing his dismay for “Joey Bats”. Earlier yesterday Jon Solomon of CBS tweeted […] Jose Bautista again the target of verbal onslaught from Orioles - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
