Blue Jays: Umpire was right, until he threw out Martin

The Blue Jays have had quite the game on Thursday afternoon, as Marcus Stoman and the ball club have battled questionable umpiring on their way to an early ejection for him, Russell Martin, and John Gibbons, all within the same half inning. As a MLB umpire, you have your good days and your bad days, […] Blue Jays: Umpire was right, until he threw out Martin - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Today in Blue Jays History: The Tulowitzki Trade

Today in Blue Jays History: The Tulowitzki Trade

Two years ago today the Blue Jays and the Rockies made a big deadline trade. The Jays got Troy Tulowitzki and LaTroy Hawkins. Going to Denver were Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro, Jesus Tinoco and Jose Reyes. The Jays were 50-50, slightly disappointing, considering the team picked up Josh Donaldson and Russell Martin (among others) that off-season. As you might remember, Reyes defense had taken a sharp nose dive. Reyes was being singled out by Jerry Howarth for his defense and, surprisingly, for his smile. He was taking a ton of the blame for the mediocre record. Unfortunately, Reyes seemed...

A Win! Jays beat A’s

A Win! Jays beat A’s

A’s 2 Blue Jays 4 Well, we should have score more. Many more. But a win is a win. We got a very nice start from Francisco Liriano. We needed it to build up a little trade value. He went just 5 innings, but allowed just 2 hits (one was a Matt Chapman home run), 2 earned, 2 walks and 5 strikeouts. He didn’t start the game like a guy that was likely to have a good day. He walked the first 2 batters, but got lucky when Russell Martin threw out the lead runner on a double steal. I gotta say, that’s a dumb time for a double steal (oh man Zaun agrees with me, I need to rethink things). The...

Blue Jays mid-term report card: Grade Russell Martin’s first half

Blue Jays mid-term report card: Grade Russell Martin’s first half

I figured, since we’ve made it to the All-Star break, which baseball considers mid-season, we should do Blue Jays mid-term report cards. We’ll do a series of polls to grade our players. Let’s start with Russell Martin. Russell is getting on base great. He’s hitting .235/.378/.403. He has a wRC+ of 115, which would be his best mark since 2014. He’s brought up his walk rate, it is 16.2%, up from 12.0 last year. and he’s striking out less, 22.0% down from 27.7. He’s hit into a few double plays, something that tends to happen with slow RHB. I like that Gibby has moved him up...

Donaldson and Tulo homer, Jays beat Astros

Donaldson and Tulo homer, Jays beat Astros

Astros 2 Blue Jays 7 Sometimes Marcus Stroman is just so good. It took him a bit to get going today (it took me a bit to get going today, so I’m understanding). He gave up a couple of walks in the first inning. A couple of singles in the second inning. And a walk, a double and a single, scoring the only run against him, in the third inning. After that, he allowed just 2 more baserunners. He had the ground ball working for him too, he had 4 double plays turned, to help him out, one of them a strikeout/throw out, with Russell Martin catching George Springer trying to steal. In total, he...

Blue Jays: Adding Montero shouldn’t affect Martin

With the Blue Jays adding Miguel Montero in a trade with the Chicago Cubs, it’s left some fans wondering if that means anything for Russell Martin’s future. The answer is almost certainly a resounding no.
