Found February 18, 2013 on Full Spectrum Baseball:
The Blue Jays are not going to win the World Series. Well, I mean, not, not ever. I am sure they will win the World Series again at some point in time, but not in 2013. Yes, you read that correctly. It is not my opinion, it is a fact. No, I did not ride a Delorean into the future and steal Biff Tannen’s Sports Almanac. I am not a soothsayer. Well, you got me, I almost never say sooth. I am not a mind reader and I do not have ESP. I just know that that Toronto Blue Jays will not win the World Series in 2013. This is a boldish statement, I suppose. And I am sure the best way to back this up would be with statistical proof and some sort of makings of sound reasoning, which I don’t have per se. What I do have is the 2012 Miami Marlins. In 2012 the Miami Marlins opened up their hearts and, well, checkbooks to Jose Reyes, Heath Bell, Ozzie Guillen and Mark Buehrle among others. They opened a new ballpark and they were the talk of the town. Expectations were high in the Sunshine State. Th...

Duneiden Dispatches

As the paid media ramps up their detailing of all things Blue Jays in this most optimistic of springs, it seems to me that the link dumps have already been done elsewhere (DJF is very through, and you can follow Blue Jays Aggregator on Twitter for another fine source) s rather than do that, I think I'll just do a player-by-player rundown on the items that have caught my eye and...

Player Profile #80: R.A. Dickey | SP | TOR

The biggest surprise about R.A. Dickey‘s 2012 season — Cy Young Award aside — was the drastic increase in strikeouts. Last year was Dickey’s seventh year featuring a knuckleball, but in the previous six seasons he’d never topped 5.88 K/9 (2009 with the Twins). It’s true that he now features what could rightly be termed a high-velocity knuckler (his average knuckleball...

Battles To Watch: AL East

Spaceman here, and I’ll be keeping tabs on spring training battles to watch by position, in each division. I’ll hopefully convey a common sense approach that assists with your draft prep and roster depth. If not, I’ll head back to my farm in Vermont to sprinkle grass on my pancakes. Blue Jays 2B Starter: Toronto brought Emilio Bonifacio over in Jeffrey "Expo Killer"...

Mark Buehrle Will Have to Live Apart From Family Because of Toronto’s Pit Bull Laws

DUNEDIN, Fla. – Mark Buehrle won’t be experiencing the dog days of summer. While the pitcher is headed to Toronto, his family will split the season between Broward County in Florida and their home in St. Louis. One of their four dogs, Slater, is a mix of bulldog and American Staffordshire Terrier — which is of pit bull lineage. Pit bulls are banned in the province of Ontario...

Sanchez versus Syndergaard: Prospect Showdown

By December it became clear Sandy Alderson would trade R.A. Dickey before his Cy Young Award could collect a spec of dust. The only questions remaining were where the knuckleballer would land and who the Mets would receive in return. It came as little surprise that Alex Anthopoulos was lurking — fresh off acquiring much Miami’s talent less than a month earlier. It was certain...
