Kendrys Morales pitches a scoreless 9th inning

Kendrys Morales pitches a scoreless 9th inning

Oh, and Jays lose. A’s 9 Blue Jays 2 The best part of the game? Kendrys Morales pitching in the 9th. He had a walk (mostly because the ump wouldn’t give him the corners), but that was it. 3 medium fly outs. He didn’t just throw fastballs, he had a breaking ball. When he came up in the bottom of the 9th he got a standing ovation. I kind of wish I slept through the top of the inning so I could have been very confused at the ovation. That was a tough day for Josh Donaldson. 3 plays not made cost us all 5 runs (only 1 was called an error, but all were plays that should have been...

Blue Jays: Why they haven’t cut Kendrys Morales just yet

Despite struggling worse than anyone could have feared, Kendrys Morales is still on the Blue Jays roster. Here is a rough explanation for why that may be. I don’t blame Blue Jays fans for being frustrated at seeing Kendrys Morales’ name still in the lineup with semi-regularity. Without attacking the guy, he’s been downright awful […] Blue Jays: Why they haven’t cut Kendrys Morales just yet - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Toronto Blue Jays need to find a solution with Kendrys Morales

Injuries have started to have an influence on the Toronto Blue Jays’ lineup and Kendrys Morales‘ struggles are impacting the roster’s flexibility.

Blue Jays: Why does Russell Martin get off the hook?

The Blue Jays have had several hitters that have been heavily criticized like Kendrys Morales, Randal Grichuk and others. Whether it’s being talked about much or not, Russell Martin has been just as bad on offence. For as well as the Blue Jays offence has performed this season, there have been several individual disappointments.

Thursday’s lineup

Thursday’s lineup

Curtis Granderson is back at the top of the order for the Blue Jays. Teoscar Hernandez moves to cleanup. Kendrys Morales bats 8th. I’m glad that Granderson is back, but I’m not thrilled that Dalton Pompey and Anthony Alford will, most likely, end up sitting more than I would like. But then that’s life. I thought Pompey and Alford looked pretty good in their handful of at bats. #BlueJays vs #Mariners ... pic.twitter.com/1Gtg3kVFrn— Shi Davidi (@ShiDavidi) May 10, 2018

Blue Jays and the Kendrys Morales epidemic

The Toronto Blue Jays brain trust have made their fair share of quality acquisitions since taking over the helm, however, the Kendrys Morales signing continues to be the Achilles heel that plagues the team. The Jays wasted no time inking Kendrys Morales to a three-year, $33 million dollar pact after bidding farewell to Edwin Encarnacion at […] Blue Jays and the Kendrys Morales epidemic - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Speed wins one for the Blue Jays

Speed wins one for the Blue Jays

Blue Jays 2 Rays 1 Who knew we were going to be manufacturing runs this year. Alford got our first run with speed, then, tied in the 9th, Pillar doubles, Kendrys Morales moved him to third with a ground ball to the right side (yeah I would have rather had a homer, but I’ll take it) and Pilar scored on a wide pitch. It was going so well until Ryan Tepera gave up a long ball to Carlos Gomez, which tied up the game. He also gave up a 1-out walk to C.J. Cron. and then a balk on a throw to first. That got Gibby his second ejection of the series. Another single put runners on the corners. A...

Blue Jays: John Gibbons on Kendrys Morales

Following an excellent two homer night in Minnesota, skipper John Gibbons voiced his opinions on the troubled slugger, saying he’s going to get things going in no time. Morales himself also spoke out on his first stolen base in almost a decade, noting that he was once a track and field runner. During Wednesday’s matinee […] Blue Jays: John Gibbons on Kendrys Morales - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Game #30 Preview: Stroman vs Romero

Game #30 Preview: Stroman vs Romero

Blue Jays (17-12) vs Twins (9-16) Kendrys Morales did all things baseball last night, helping the Jays to the 7-4 extra inning victory. Today, the Blue Jays go for the sweep of the Twins before heading to Cleveland for a pair of games tomorrow. First pitch this afternoon, and note the early start time, is at 1:10 ET. Blue Jays’ Starter Marcus Stroman is making his 6th start of the season, and his ERA looks like an error at 8.88. Now that we are officially into May, we can start considering being worried. If he doesn’t lower that number today, I’d start thinking about a lingering...

With a wild 10th inning, Blue Jays win

With a wild 10th inning, Blue Jays win

Lost in the craziness of the 10, Kendrys Morales had 2 home runs and a stolen base! Blue Jays 7 Twins 4 (10 innings) That was a wild 10th inning The 10th started off with a Pillar double. Lourdes Gurriel had a long at bat, but chased a 3-2 pitch...it would have been ball four and it would have forced the Twins to pitch to Kendrys. Lourdes had a rough game, 0 for 5, 3 strikeouts, with none of that hard contact we come to expect. Instead they gave Morales an IW (his second of the game). With Luke Maile up, Pillar stole third and, unless I’m punchy, next pitch, Morales stole second. I’m...

Blue Jays: Kendrys Morales and the slow stuff

The book is out on Blue Jays slugger Kendrys Morales – he cannot hit the breaking balls. An excellent fastball hitter, opposing pitchers have heavily leaned on offspeed pitches to get Morales out. We’ve all seen the at-bats before. Hopeless swings at curveballs diving and dancing down in the zone, and quick, three-pitch at-bats that […] Blue Jays: Kendrys Morales and the slow stuff - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
