Wednesday’s Lineup: Pearce leads off

Wednesday’s Lineup: Pearce leads off

So we have a different leadoff hitter tonight. Steve Pearce is at the top of the order. He has a .344 OBP, so I’m ok with the idea. Jose and Josh are back in their normal spots on defense. And Raffy gets back behind the plate. It can’t go as badly as last time, right? Today's Lineups TORONTO BLUE JAYS TAMPA BAY RAYS Steve Pearce - LF Kevin Kiermaier - CF Josh Donaldson - 3B Lucas Duda - DH Justin Smoak - 1B Evan Longoria - 3B Jose Bautista - RF Logan Morrison - 1B Kendrys Morales - DH Steven Souza - RF Kevin Pillar - CF Corey Dickerson - LF Ryan Goins -...

That was awful: Jays lose in extras

That was awful: Jays lose in extras

Blue Jays 5 Cubs 6 (10 innings) The top of 10th inning was fun. Josh Donaldson started things off with an infield single, just off the glove of Javier Baez. It’s about time we got a late inning hit past him. After a Justin Smoak fly out, Jose Bautista was intentionally walked (Josh moved up to second on a bad throw from Cubs catcher Alex Avila). After a Darwin Barney fly out, Kevin Pillar hit a hard single to right and Josh just beat the throw to the plate (with a nice slide). I like Pillar so much better when he’s hitting. The fun continued when Koji Uehara walked Ryan Goins (his...

Poor offense and defense, Jays lose to Cubs

Poor offense and defense, Jays lose to Cubs

Blue Jays 3 Cubs 4 Nick Tepesch had a tough first inning, for most of it he was no where near the plate. He gave up a lead off walk, got a pop out, then hit Kris Bryant with a pitch that was closer to the plate than most of his previous pitches. Another walk loaded the bases. Then Ian Happ lined one at Jose Bautista. Jose could have really helped us out by making a, not too difficult, catch. At least he kept it close and the Cubs only scored one. Tepesch got a ground ball to second, that Rob Refsnyder threw high to Darwin Barney, but Barney did a nice job of going up for it, touching...

Kuhl deal: Blue Jays cruise to Happ-y 7-2 win

Kuhl deal: Blue Jays cruise to Happ-y 7-2 win

Pirates 1 Blue Jays 7 A nice relaxing Sunday afternoon win for the Blue Jays. Happ was a little rocky in the early going, allowing three straight singles with one out in the top of the 1st to put the Jays in an early 1-0 hole. He limited the damage to that, and then the Jays punched back in a big way off Chad Kuhl. They started with what's recently becoming a pleasantly familiar combination, a walk from Jose Bautista followed by a long ball from Josh Donaldson. And it was an absolute blast, measured by Statcast as 111 MPH off the bat and travelling an estimated 452 feet to put the Jays up...

Blue Jays’ Jose Bautista reaches another milestone

The Toronto Blue Jays and slugger Jose Bautista will more than likely go their separate ways at the conclusion of a disappointing season enduring Joey Bats run as the longest tenured player. Last night Bautista reached yet another milestone cementing his legacy as one of the best to ever play north of the border.

Thursday Bantering: Jersey Spelling Mistakes

Thursday Bantering: Jersey Spelling Mistakes

Who knew baby only had one B? With Player’s Weekend on August 25th-27th, Major League Baseball announced the nicknames set to be featured on the back of player’s jerseys yesterday. Some of them, like “Corey’s Brother” for Kyle Seager or “PTBNL” for Josh Phegley, are brilliant. Others aren’t. Notable Blue Jay nicknames include “Bringer of Rain” (Josh Donaldson), “Joey Bats” (Jose Bautista), “Stro-Show” (Marcus Stroman) and “No Panic” (Roberto Osuna). Devon Travis’s nickname is The Babby. At least that’s what the official press release states. In a media...

Blue Jays: Is there any scenario where Jose Bautista returns?

It’s no secret that the face of the Blue Jays for the last 8 years in Jose Bautista has not had a very good season to this point. It’s sad to see how quickly Bautista has declined since the end of the 2015 season. As of right now, it seems extremely unlikely that Bautista will […] Blue Jays: Is there any scenario where Jose Bautista returns? - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Jose Bautista Isn't Doing Himself Any Favors

After a rough 2016 that included some injuries, it wasn't crazy to think Jose Bautista could bounce back this year. Instead of returning to form at the plate, though, things have gotten worse.

Josh Donaldson 4, Garrett Cooper 2: Blue Jays down Yankees

Josh Donaldson 4, Garrett Cooper 2: Blue Jays down Yankees

Yankees 2 Blue Jays 4 Beating the Yankees is always fun. Josh Donaldson hitting bombs is a lot of fun. It follows, then, that tonight was a very good night. On both sides, one player was responsible for driving all in all his team's in this game. Fortunately, for the Jays, a former MVP has a slight edge over a guy with just double digit MLB at-bats, and Donaldson was more than up to the task of doubling up Garrett Cooper. Donaldson did all his damage off Yankee starter C.C. Sabathia, in what was a short and miserable night for him. After Jose Bautista led off the bottom of the 1st with a...

Blue Jays: Aoki could lead off, but where does he play?

The recently acquired Nori Aoki profiles as the best option to hit at the top of the Blue Jays’ lineup. The problem is, there is nowhere for him to play as long Jose Bautista and Steve Pearce are around. The Blue Jays have had a wide variety of reasons for their disappointing season, but one […] Blue Jays: Aoki could lead off, but where does he play? - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Blue Jays: If there’s a buyer, trade Bautista now

With the glut of outfielders on the big league roster and in Triple A, the Blue Jays need to see what they have for next year, and need to clear some playing time in order to do that. For that reason, the team should continue to shop Jose Bautista in August. It’s always hard to […] Blue Jays: If there’s a buyer, trade Bautista now - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
