BLUE JAYS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Nolan Reimold designated for assignment, Kevin Pillar recalled

Did you know that the Blue Jays acquired Nolan Reimold back on July 6? It has not felt like a month-and-a-half since that waiver claim. Of course, he had a stint on the disabled list four games into his tenure here (beating the one-game stint of Cole Gillespie) so he ended up playing just 22 games for the Blue Jays. It was a fairly unspectacular 22 games that had him hit .212/.283...

Omar Vizquel Tries Out For Tigers Shortstop Position

OK, so it wasn't a full-blown tryout on the part of Omar Vizquel, but I wouldn't blame the Tigers for at least entertaining the idea of trying to coax the 47 year-old coach into maybe possibly playing a few games to give the Tigers a possible boost out of position that has combined to produce 0.6 fWAR between Eugenio Suarez, Andrew Romine, Danny Worth and Alex Gonzalez...

Can The Blue Jays Afford To Keep Handing Ball To Casey Janssen?

The Toronto Blue Jays are desperate for wins with each passing day as they slip further out of contention in the American League wild-card race. Manager John Gibbons needs to field the best possible lineup from here on out in an attempt to win games. Unfortunately for Gibbons his proven reliable closer Casey Janssen has been anything but since the All-Star break and begs the question...

Blue Jays Manager John Gibbons Rips ‘Marked Man’ Jose Bautista For Ejection

It’s not often that a manager takes the umpire’s side in an argument involving one of his best players. However, that’s exactly what Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons did Sunday. Gibbons wasn’t very pleased when Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista was ejected by home plate umpire Bill Welke in the sixth inning for arguing balls and strikes. Bautista, who took a borderline...

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons was not happy with Jose Bautista getting himself ejected

The Toronto Blue Jays are making a final push to make it to the playoffs. So you know the pressure is probably very intense right now. Emotions and frustration boiled over after yesterday’s loss against the Tampa Bay Rays. In the sixth inning, Jose Bautista was ejected from the game for arguing about the strike zone. Well, this didn’t go over well with manager John Gibbons and...

John Gibbons rips Jose Bautista for getting ejected in yesterday’s game

It’s not often you hear a manager mention the absence of one of his players who got ejected in his postgame comments. And when it does happen, it’s usually the manger standing up for his player. Following yesterday’s Blue Jays-Rays game, however, John Gibbons let Jose Bautista have it. Bautista was ejected in the sixth inning for arguing balls and strikes. Nolan Reimold took...

Rays protest game after controversial replay decison

It’s safe to say Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon isn’t a fan of Major League Baseball’s replay system at the moment. Maddon protested Saturday afternoon’s Rays game against the Toronto Blue Jays after a controversial replay challenge in the fourth inning. During the frame, first base umpire Bill Welke initially called Rays outfielder Will Myers safe after an attempted...

It’s Not Over Yet For The Toronto Blue Jays

Melky Cabrera and Jose Reyes need to remain hot for the Blue Jays the rest of the way I may sound like a massive homer and extremely loyal to the Toronto Blue Jays but as crazy as it may sound, do not right the 2014 season off just yet. As things sit on the 21st of August they remain 4.5 back of the Detroit Tigers and 4.0 back of the Seattle Mariners in the chase for the second...

Toronto Blue Jays Oppose Creighton’s Trademark Bid For ‘Bluejay’ Logo

OMAHA, Neb. — The Toronto Blue Jays are contesting Creighton University’s use of a new logo, saying the depiction of the school’s “Bluejay” too closely resembles the logo of the major league baseball team. The Blue Jays filed a notice of opposition this month with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, opposing the university’s application for a trademark. Creighton...

Toronto Blue Jays suing Creighton over logo

The Toronto Blue Jays came out of left field (pun definitely intended) with a lawsuit against the Creighton Bluejays.  They are alleging that Creighton began using the Blue Jay (or Bluejays) logo in September of 2013, and that it has and will continue to damage, “cause confusion, cause mistake, and deceive the trade and public, who [&hellip (Visited 8 times, 8 visits today...

Jose Reyes unveils bold new dyed hairstyle

Say whatever you want about Jose Reyes’ new hairstyle, but I’d be willing to bet he is the only person in professional sports who has it. When the Toronto Blue Jays shortstop was wearing a hat over the weekend, it may not have looked like he was hiding some sort of exotic hairstyle. When he […]

Watch: Blue Jays fans mock Fernando Rodney’s arrow-shooting gesture

It’s no secret that Fernando Rodney’s signature ‘bow and arrow’ move is one of the most annoying routines in all of baseball. Most teams don’t really enjoy seeing this after he closes out a game and records a save. And apparently, fans don’t like it all that much either. A group of Toronto Blue Jays fans recently decided to troll Rodney after he came in for a save...
