Bullpen Report, Week 12: A Group of Blue Jays is Called a Committee Now?

Well, I guess that makes all the sense in the world, because those darn Flock of Seagulls got all in your head in the 80's.  Then they had the nerve to be in GTA and get you all singing about running.  I don't even run when chased anymore.  It's a big game of "ooohhh ya got me".  So north of the border, they do it all in groups now apparently.  That group started out as a singular...

Seattle hits 2 homers, knocks off Blue Jays 6-3

SEATTLE (AP) J.A. Happ doesn't believe the Toronto Blue Jays are putting an excessive amount of importance on an August series. He is willing to give some credit to the new co-leaders in the race for the second wild card in the American League. ''It's just they are doing the things we're not right now, and we need to turn it around,'' Happ said. Kyle Seager and Kendrys Morales hit...

Toronto Blue Jays: Squandering leads are hurting the team

Lately, the Toronto Blue Jays have been losing games after being ahead, going into the late innings. Case in point.  The Jays were ahead 5-3 going into the ninth inning in the first of three game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates this past weekend.  Pittsburgh scored three unanswered runs and ended up winning the game 6-5.  Talk about a heart breaker. It got even worse for...

Fantasy Waiver Wire: Week 5

My apologies for the late (and short) offering. I was indisposed today. Plenty of my previous rec’s are still widely available, given that these tend toward the deeper options. Dallas Keuchel An Astros starting pitcher? Really? Believe me, I’m as shocked as you are. And I don’t blame you for passing; he’s not likely to help your win totals, after all. On the other hand, he’s...

Game 30: Pirates 8 Blue Jays 6

On the interminable and awful road trip/homestand/road trip sequence that consumed the Pirates after the season’s first week ended, something about the Pirates just felt different than the 2013 edition. I fully admit that this is the sort of thing that fans say when they don’t understand exactly what was wrong, but the 2013 Pirates had this frenetic energy almost from Opening...

Quit yer stallin' for relief pitchers

Although I am on the high side of my fifties, I am in large part still a kid inside. Baseball works very well for that. And when I yell at players on my television screen, I often yell in the voices of Bugs Bunny characters. If you don't believe me, ask my wife. Such an occasion occurred last night in the Blue Jays - Yankees game when Toronto manager, John Gibbons, clearly stalled...
