Great Start from Kikuchi, Jays Beat Rays

Great Start from Kikuchi, Jays Beat Rays

Photo by Cole Burston/ Rays 1 Blue Jays 4 Off the top, let’s just acknowledge how great Matt Chapman is with the glove. With almost anyone else at third base, this would have been a different game. In the sixth inning, it looked like Yusei Kikuchi was starting to lose it. He gave up back-to-back singles to start the inning. Then there was a bouncing ball up the third-base line, that Chapman pitched up, touched third and made an excellent throw to first for the double-play. The next batter hits almost exactly the grounder, a fair bit harder (103.1 MPH) that Chapman...

Blue Jays Birthdays: Tony Fernandez

Photo by Focus on Sport/ The best shortstop to play for the Blue Jays, Tony Fernandez, would have turned 60 today. Tony is our franchise leader in games played (1450) and hits (1583), among other things. He also holds our single-season record for singles (161) and triples (17). He also leads position players in bWAR at 37.5 (Jose Bautista is second at 37.0). Fernandez had four different tours of duty with the Jays. He came up to the Jays in 1983, at 21 years old, and played shortstop until 1990. Then he was part of the big trade, going to San Diego with Fred McGriff for...

Wednesday Banter: Romo Signed

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports We knew this was coming, Sergio Romo has officially been signed by the Blue Jays. Shaun Anderson was optioned back to Buffalo and Tayler Saucedo has been transferred to the 60-day IL. Romo has an 8.16 ERA in 14.1 innings with the Mariners (the type of number that gets you released). He had 11 strikeouts and 4 walks. He has been throwing a slider (46.7% of the time), fastball (39.1%, averaging 85.5 MPH) and change (14.1%, 80 MPH). How to tell the difference between the change and the fastball would be a trick. This will be a test of the...

Vlad Gets Walk-Off Single, Jays Beat Red Sox

Steve Russell/Toronto Star via Red Sox 5 Blue Jays 6 What a great bottom of the ninth. Down a run: Alejandro Kirk, pinch-hitting, led off with a single. He’s having a fairy tale season. Bradley Zimmer pinch-ran for Kirk. Zimmer is worth the roster spot for this role. Springer walked to move Zimmer to second. Great at-bat. Bo singles the other way on the first pitch of his at-bat. Tie game. Just amazing. And Vlad gets the walk-off single, after taking two balls off the plate. One of those wonderful moments that we’ll remember all season. Before the ninth, there...
