Another bad loss for the Blue Jays

Angels 8 Blue Jays 1 I felt a little divorced from that game, Maybe because we were down early. Maybe because the Facebook video isn’t great. I turned off the sound and listened to Wagner and Wilner (I very much enjoy them on the radio) Marco Estrada wasn’t good. 4.1 innings, 7 hits (including a Mike Trout homer that barely made it out of the park, it bounced off the top of the wall and over), 4 earned, 2 walks and 1 strikeout. Marco seemed to fall behind every batter, not a recipe for success. Offensively, we couldn’t do a thing against Nick Tropeano. He went 7.1 (and I was...

2018 Draft Preview: Blue Jays Tendencies

The 21st century has been an interesting time for the Blue Jays in terms of the MLB Draft. It started with J.P.

Game #50 Preview: Tropeano vs Estrada

Game #50 Preview: Tropeano vs Estrada

Angels (27-22) vs Blue Jays (23-26) After a long, terrible defeat last night, the Blue Jays are right back at it early against the Angels to finish up their 3 game series. Today’s game is at 12:37 ET, AND IS ONLY ON FACEBOOK WATCH. Blue Jays’ Starter Marco Estrada brings his high fly ball act into the finale of this series. Through his first 9 games, Estrada is 2-4 with a 5.15 ERA, right in line with his 5.23 FIP. The pitcher who handily outperformed his FIP his first two seasons with the Jays thanks to impressively low BABIPs is no longer here, but Estrada is still a fully capable...
