Jose Bautista has one of the best matchups of the night, but should his recent play scare you away? Who else should you avoid in MLB DFS on Monday?

Blue Jays 7, Rangers 5: Six runs in the first is enough to prevent a Texas comeback

Blue Jays 7, Rangers 5: Six runs in the first is enough to prevent a Texas comeback

An early offensive outburst and some solid bullpen work was enough to overcome a bumpy few innings. Joe Biagini hadn’t been getting much help. In the last four games he stated entering tonight, the Jays only scored a grand total of seven runs. That trend ended quickly Wednesday evening when the reshuffled Blue Jays lineup posted a six spot in the opening frame. New leadoff hitter Jose Bautista did exactly what a leadoff hitter is supposed to do during his first plate appearance of the game; he got on base (via a walk). Then the hit parade began with two outs. Justin Smoak knocked in a...

When it’s 36C just prior to game time, the last thing ball players want to do is move around too much.

A comeback win: Jays beat Rangers

A comeback win: Jays beat Rangers

That was a great ending. Blue Jays 5 Rangers 6 Until the top of the ninth that was a frustrating game. Down by one in the 9th. Ryan Goins led off with a double (just barely safe at second, if he had been out, I’d have gone to Texas and personally taken him down to the minors, at gun point if necessary). After a pop out by Kevin Pillar (he looks so lost at the plate, time to give him a couple of days off), Josh Donaldson singled to tie the game. Love you Josh. A Jose Bautista walk later, Kendrys Morales singled home the go ahead run. We should have scored more, Smoak walked to load the...

Blue Jays trying to find ways to score besides home run

Blue Jays trying to find ways to score besides home run

ARLINGTON — Last season, Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista went to manager John Gibbons and offered to hit from the lead-off spot as the team was having trouble getting guys on base and generating runs.

Lacking Offense, Jays lose to White Sox

Lacking Offense, Jays lose to White Sox

White Sox 5 Blue Jays 2 Where has all the offense gone? April, we couldn’t hit. May, we could. June....can’t hit again. We managed 6 hits and 2 runs against Mike Pelfrey and 4 White Sox relievers. We scored on a Ryan Goins ground rule double and a Dwight Smith single. No Jay had more than 1 hit. Josh Donaldson, Jose Bautista and Luke Maile had the 0 fors. Josh also had an error, so a tough day for him and had another ball go through him that should have been an error. Our best chance came in the 7th inning. We loaded the bases, with just 1 out, but Ryan Goin hit in an inning ending...

Before Jose Bautista, there was Eduardo Perez

Before Jose Bautista, there was Eduardo Perez

Perez had a batflip that would have made Jose Bautista blush For those of you who do not remember, Eduardo Perez spent two years with the Rays organization from 2004 to 2005. During those years, he actually provided some pretty memorable moments, like when he tore his ACL going for a triple and collapsed after rounding second, or the time the unleashed an epic batflip after clobbering a walk-off HR against the Boston Red Sox. This was a batflip so mighty and so emphatic, you’d think that Jose Bautista was emulating his inner Eduardo Perez when he tossed the batflip heard round the world...

Blue Jays: Smoak and Bautista outplaying Encarnacion

The Blue Jays had plenty of important decisions to make this offseason, including whether or not to bring back Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion, both of whom were free agents. So far, those decisions have worked out for the Blue Jays’ brass. The season is still somewhat early, however, Thursday marks the 1/3 point of […] Blue Jays: Smoak and Bautista outplaying Encarnacion - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

BaMMeD! Blue Jays win Battle of the Longball 6-4

BaMMeD! Blue Jays win Battle of the Longball 6-4

Donaldson! Bautista! Martin! Morales! Reds 4 Blue Jays 6 BaMMeD: what Bautista, Martin, Morales, and Donaldson did to the Reds tonight. For the first time this year the big bats in the middle of the order are healthy and producing. Tonight that was the difference, as they hammered the Reds pitching with some tape measure shots, and it was just enough to overcome three home runs given up in turn and some bullpen scuffles. With the game locked 1-1 in the bottom of the 8th, Jose Bautista singled to leading off as the first batter to face reliever Blake Wood. Kendrys Morales followed by getting...

Dodgers mailbag: Should they pursue slugger Jose Bautista and outfielder J.D. Martinez?

The Dodgers are 32-20. That translates to a 100-win pace, even if the team is still in second place in the National League West. After winning 10 times in 12 games, the Dodgers have cut Colorado’s division lead to a half-game. The Rockies have not fallen off, but the Dodgers appear to be hitting...

Jays Crush Reds

Jays Crush Reds

17 to 2 win for the Jays. Reds 2 Blue Jays 17 (or so, I quit counting) We’ve been waiting for a drama free game, and we got it. So I’m not really going recap that. But, let’s look at some of the offensive performances. We had 23 hits and 7 walks. We had 5 doubles and 3 home runs. Josh Donaldson: 1 for 4, with a walk, 1 RBI. Jose Bautista: 2 for 3, double, walk. Kendrys Morales: 3 for 4, 2 doubles, 2 walks, 1 RBI. Justin Smoak: 3 for 5, home run, 4 RBI. Russell Martin: 3 for 4, walk, homer, double, 3 RBI. He was also thrown out at second trying to stretch a single into a...
