PLAYERS: Jamie Moyer
TEAMS: Toronto Blue Jays
Jamie Moyer’s career has hit another speed bump. The 49-year-old starting pitcher has been cut by the Toronto Blue Jays after making two starts for the team’s Triple-A club. When Moyer signed a minor league deal with the Blue Jays last month, the team said the ageless left-hander would make two starts for Triple-A Las Vegas. Well, those two starts didn’t go well and Toronto has decided to part ways with him. Moyer gave up seven runs over six inning in his second start on Tuesday, and the Blue Jays announced his release late on Thursday. That set his record in Las Vegas at 1-1 with an 8.18 ERA. Moyer has now been cut by three teams this year, after the Baltimore Orioles and Colorado Rockies let him go earlier in the season. In 10 starts with Colorado he had a 2-5 record with a 5.70 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP. He has a career record of 269-209 and a 4.25 ERA. On April 17, Moyer became the oldest pitcher in major league history to earn a win in a 5-3 victory over the San Diego Padres. ...

Toronto Blue Jays: Jose Bautista named AL Player Of The Month

I got some good news and some bad news about the Toronto Blue Jays. Let’s start with the bad. The Jays opened the four game series against the Kansas City Royals on a losing note.  In fact, they got creamed 11-3.  Starting pitcher, Ricky Romero had a terrible night on the mound, giving up 11 hits, eight earned runs, three walks and struck out only four batters in six innings...

Daily Notes | Adam Lind Heating Up

Adam Lind was hitting .186 with a .586 OPS on May 16th. The Blue Jays organization had seen enough and Lilnd was sent down as a result. Lind dominated in 32 games with Triple-A Las Vegas. And even though it is considered one of the better places to hit in the hitting heavy Pacific Coast League, Lind's .392 batting average and 1.112 OPS had to be acknowledged as a recovery. The...

Mid-Season Thoughts

Given the lack of bloggage around here (you will possibly note the absence of the 2/5 Report), I'm going to squeeze in both goals for this week.On the major league level, it seems emotionally to have been a season plagued by more upheaval than...
