Jays play bad baseball and lose

Maybe you’ve heard that one before. Blue Jays 2 Yankees 10 Let’s start with the rant: 6th, 2 outs, down by 4, Kevin Pillar on second and gets thrown out trying to steal third. Stealing third with 2 outs is stupid to begin with. There is little upside, 2 outs you’ll score on any single anyway. Down by 4, your run isn’t the one that matters, it’s the guys behind you that matter. Gibby let Pillar know about it when he got back to the dugout.

Blue Jays roster moves: Santos Down, Shafer Up

Blue Jays roster moves: Santos Down, Shafer Up

The Blue Jays have sent Luis Santos down to Buffalo, Justin Shafer gets his active roster spot. To make room on the 40-man, Aaron Sanchez has been put on the 60-day DL retroactive to June 22. 60 days should be August 21 so it won’t make any difference for when he comes back. Shafer has had a great season. Splitting time between New Hampshire and Buffalo he has a 1.17 ERA in 35 games. In 54 innings he’s allowed 37 hits, 1 home run, 21 walks and has 46 strikeouts. I’m looking forward to seeing him. Santos, as you know, hasn’t been good. 7.20 ERA for the Jays in 20 innings. Also, as...
