Blue Jays: How important is Martin’s return for Osuna?

Roberto Osuna nailed down his 36th save of the season on Friday, and looked at home throwing to Russell Martin, who recently returned from the DL. It’s been a tale of two seasons for Roberto Osuna, who has been untouchable at times, and has looked lost on the mound at others. After making the All-Star […] Blue Jays: How important is Martin’s return for Osuna? - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Josh Donaldson scores two in 4-3 win over Minnesota Twins

Josh Donaldson scores two in 4-3 win over Minnesota Twins

Donaldson scored the go-ahead run after a double from Russell Martin tied the game. Trailing 3-1 in the top of the sixth on Friday night against the Minnesota Twins, the Toronto Blue Jays faced a situation eerily similar to that of one night before, when Justin Smoak homered in the top of the ninth to tie the game before the Twins walked it off in the 10th. They had put in the work, but to no avail. On Friday night in Minnesota, the results were reaped. Down by two, Josh Donaldson homered, and it was only a one-run gap. Russell Martin, in his second start behind the plate since being...

Roberto Osuna, Michael Saunders leave team for birth of respective children

Your morning update for everything Blue Jays. Roberto Osuna and Michael Saunders left the major-league team yesterday with the birth of their respective children. Major League Baseball’s paternity list lasts at least one game and no more than three. Osuna returned to his native Mexico, while Saunders, a recent September call-up and former All-Star with the Blue Jays, went to his home in Colorado. Russell Martin expects to be back in Toronto’s lineup by Wednesday, Jeff Blair of Sportsnet reports. He took batting practice on Monday and will catch a bullpen session at some point prior to...

Poll Time: Vote on the best Jays catcher

Poll Time: Vote on the best Jays catcher

Since I really don’t want to talk about how bad the team is playing, let’s do some polls. Let’s vote on the best catcher in Jays history. There aren’t much for Hall of Fame candidates among the catchers in our franchise's past, some goodish catchers, but none that stand out all that much. I only know of three of them being All-Stars, Russell Martin, in 2015, John Buck, in 2010 and Ernie Whitt, in 1985. I have a soft spot for Whitt, I loved his all out swing. Sometimes he finished his swing with his knee on the ground. A separate question would be which was the best defensive...
