Colby Rasmus, Enigma

The Toronto Blue Jays season is a two-part story. What began as a pleasant surprise quickly descended into a lucid, waking nightmare. Two Blue Jays’ outfielders heading into free agency embody each of those characteristics.

Reyes, Rasmus clutch in Blue Jays win over Rays

There was no team meeting. No caustic managerial speech. There didn’t need to be. Friday night, in losing 8-0 to the Tampa Bay Rays, the Blue Jays were unacceptably docile, lacking energy, bereft of purpose. It was obvious to anyone who saw it and also to the ball players who suffered through it. “We are grown men,” said Jose Reyes. “We know when we don’t do good. Yesterday...

Is Colby Rasmus Actually Our Steve Jobs?

Looking back, Colby Rasmus was one of the players that ushered in a new era of Cardinals fandom. Yes, there were highly touted prospects before him. But in between the time he signed (June 2005) until his MLB debut (April 2009), technology was revolutionized. And revolutionized is probably too small of a descriptor. It was less than 10 years ago when texting was a chore and getting...

Reim time in Houston, Jays beat Astros 6-5

No new player walked into the Blue Jays clubhouse to be greeted with handshakes and smiles. On trade deadline day the Blue Jays did nadda, zippo, nothing.
