The GM's Perspective:
Ricky Romero had arthroscopic surgery on his throwing elbow and platelet-rich plasma injections to his ailing knees according to Sportsnet.
Romero did admit that he pitched with pain throughout the season thus leading to an MRI at the end of the year. Doesn’t this make you wonder that things were worse than what people led on?
If your elbow is hurting that much that it requires surgery, maybe this should have been something that was dealt with months ago.
People all year were questioning what was wrong with Romero? He was supposedly the Ace of the staff, signed a long-term deal and was ready for the spotlight. Instead he had the worst year of his career after having his best. He led the league in walks (105), tied for 5th in losses with 14 and had an ERA of 5.77.
With all the information we have at our fingertips, and statistical data available, the injury and results really aren’t surprising. Coaches and managers have their instincts as do players and fans, and ob...

Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Ricky Romero had arthroscopic surgery on his left elbow Tuesday. The lefty went 9-14 last season for the Blue Jays, while posting a 5.77 in 181 innings. The 27-year-old will need six weeks of recovery time. He also received platelet-rich plasma injections in both knees to help his recovery from quad tendinitis.
The Toronto Blue Jays have exercised their $3 million option on left-hander Darren Oliver and have signed outfielder Rajai Davis to a one-year, $2.5 million contract after declining the option on his previous two-year deal.
Davis hit .257 with 24 doubles, eight home runs, 43 RBIs and 46 stolen bases last year. The Blue Jays held a $3 million option for 2013 with a $500,000 buyout...
As you might have read in the addendum to the previous post, I'm the new guy around here. I just wanted to say that I'm very excited to have the opportunity to be a writer for this blog and I look forward to sharing ideas and opinions with Blue Jays fans worldwide. Of course, discussion is always more fun than monologues, so comments are always welcome and encouraged. Below...
As the ongoing speculation rages over the Jays manager position, about which I have not enough information to add anything worthwhile except as already stated regarding the coaches, I will get back to my series and in so doing I come to the position which is likely the weakest in the system, in terms of depth of potential major leaguers. Nevertheless, it must be addressed so let...
The Red Sox announced today that they've added Brian Butterfield to their staff. Butterfield will be third-base coach under John Farrell; the same role he had in Toronto the last two years under Farrell, and one preceding him.
Butterfield hails from Bangor, Maine, which makes him A-OK in my book, considering Maine is the greatest state in the union.
He's also a tremendous...
