Found July 07, 2013 on Baseball Hot Corner:
Major League Baseball announced the contestants for the annual Final Vote contest which allows fans to cast their vote for the final roster spot on the National and American League All-Star Teams. I was pleased to see that lights out Toronto Blue Jays reliever Steve Delabar was recognized as a finalist for the contest. Delabar is slotted against fellow bullpen hurlers Joaquin Benoit, David Robertson, Tanner Scheppers and Koji Uehara respectively for a chance to represent the American League at Citi Field in New York. Even-though I am a biased Toronto Blue Jays fan, Steve Delabar whole heartedly deserves your consideration and is a worthy candidate deserving of your all important final vote. Bedsides the fact that the path to the major leagues for Delabar is worthy of a Walt Disney production, he has impressive numbers to back up it up. The man with the blazing heater has been lights out this season after the Blue Jays practically stole him from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for E...

Josh Johnson: Big Money Free Agent?

Is Josh Johnson still worth a big money contract? It is well known around the Toronto Blue Jays front office and fan base that one of the prized off-season acquisitions, pitcher Josh Johnson is a free agent at the end of the season. If this were 2009 or 2010, one could make the argument that Johnson would receive a contract as fat as one similar to Felix Hernandez or Matt...

Reviewing the R.A. Dickey trade a half year later

At the age of 38, R.A. Dickey is 8 and 8 for Toronto.  Through 115.2 innings he has a 4.59 ERA, 42 BBs and 82 Ks and his WHIP sits at 1.288.  Those aren’t BAD stats for a starting pitcher, but I’ll point out the Jeremy Hefner’s stats are better.  Dickey is rounding into form and I think that Toronto will not completely regret the deal they made… though they look like...

Blue Jays 11, Twins 5

MLB Experiments with Placing TV Ad Graphics on the Field

Rogers SportsNet We’ve seen graphics showing where the first down line is, and the red zone in football. We’ve seen graphics on panels behind home plate. But, a Toronto Blue Jays game via SportsNet shows that it could move into baseball in a new way, placing graphics on the field in foul territory near, and on the batter’s eye in center field. As this graphic from...

Series Preview: Blue Jays at Indians 7/9-11

Game 1: Tuesday, July 8th, 7:05 PM EDT Josh Johnson, RHP, 1-3, 4.89 ERA vs Ubaldo Jimenez, RHP, 6-4, 4.67 ERA The Blue Jays rotation is full of underachieving starters that they over-paid for during the 2013 off-season. Johnson is one of those, a former NL Cy Young candidate that has just won a single game in 2013. Johnson has improved throughout the entire season after starting...
