Powered by the StroShow, Blue Jays shut out Orioles 4-0

Marcus Stroman pitched 7.2 shutout innings and both Justin Smoak and Jose Bautista hit home runs. Marcus. Stroman. On June 17th, Stroman gave up three home runs for just the second time in his major league career, and the first since July 15th, 2016. On June 22nd, Stroman gave up three home runs once again. But not on June 28th. With a crowd of 38,847 at the Rogers Centre, Marcus Stroman put on a show — the StroShow, as some might call it — to shutout the Orioles in an eventual 4-0 Toronto win. Stroman’s lights-out start began in an auspicious manner, with a single hit by Seth Smith....

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...

Gibbons on Jays order: Leave them alone and they'll come home: DiManno

Gibbons on Jays order: Leave them alone and they'll come home: DiManno

The team-leading power of Kendrys Morales and surprising Justin Smoak would do more damage if the top of the Jays batting order got on base more often.

Who’s Up, Who’s Down: Blue Jays Batters

Who’s Up, Who’s Down: Blue Jays Batters

Looking at our hitters over the last two weeks. Over the past two weeks the Blue Jays are 5-5. The batters are hitting ..245/.321/.423. They have averaged 3.9 runs per game. Let’s see how each batter has done. Up Justin Smoak: Started all 10 games. He hit .316/.366/.632 with 4 home runs, 5 RBI, 2 walks and 8 strikeouts. He’s been consistently great all season so far. I have no complaints. His defense has looked good too. He’s a big target for throws at first. He seems to do a good job stretching for balls while keeping his foot on the bag. Josh Donaldson: Started all 10 games. Hit...

Who would have thought at the beginning of the season that Smoak would be — should be — considered for the all-star game?

Jays get thumped by White Sox

Jays get thumped by White Sox

White Sox 11 Blue Jays 4 I don’t know what it is about games that could get us back to .500, but we are something like 0-7 in those games this year. I’m not really going to do a real recap of that game, cause who wants to be reminded of it. But, it is in my contract that we recap games. Joe Biagini had a terrible time. He only got 3 outs. Gave up 8 hits and 1 walk, with 7 runs, 6 earned. The unearned run was his own fault, throwing roughly 10 feet over Justin Smoak’s head on a tapper back to the mound. I wasn’t happy that Gibby kept him in his last start for several pitches...

Blue Jays First Round Flashback: Justin Smoak

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. First baseman Justin Smoak has been all the rage this season resurrecting his […] Blue Jays First Round Flashback: Justin Smoak - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Blue Jays: Aaron Loup is starting to look like his old self

The Toronto Blue Jays have had many pleasant surprises through the season’s first 2 months and a bit. The most discussed surprises include Justin Smoak, Joe Biagini, and Joe Smith. One of the most underrated and not talked about surprises is that of Aaron Loup, who is starting to look like his old self again.

Blue Jays: Stroman deserves an All-Star nod

The drive for All-Star votes has already begun, and the push for guys like Justin Smoak and Josh Donaldson is already in full force. One of the most deserving Blue Jay candidates is Marcus Stroman, who has quietly put together a solid first half. Despite being under .500 after 60 games, the Blue Jays have […] Blue Jays: Stroman deserves an All-Star nod - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Homers and Pitching, Jays Beat Maringers

Homers and Pitching, Jays Beat Maringers

Blue Jays 4 Mariners 2 That was a much better game. This is going to be a quick recap, because it is late and I’m tired. Home runs were the order of the day for the good guys. We only managed 4 hits, but 3 of them were home runs. Kendrys Morales had a 2-run homer in the fourth (jumping us over the M’s for a 2-1 lead), Ezequiel Carrera had a solo shot in the eighth (giving us back the lead, at 3-2) (wouldn’t you know he’d have a big hit a day after I was so irratated by his rather terrible defense) and Justin Smoak, another solo shot in the 9th (giving us a much appreciated...
