Clutchlings Blue Jays Minor League Notebook Returns!

Hello faithful readers.  My wife and I were off on a three week vacation – a week in Barcelona, one week in the south of Tenerife (part of the Canary Islands), and a week on that island’s west coast.  We swam in the ocean, climbed a volcano, ate a lot of tapas, and drank a lot of beer and sangria to replenish the fluids we lost in the sub tropical sun. If you ever want to know...

Blue Jays need continued production from rookies to succeed in 2015

The Toronto Blue Jays (42-39, 1 GB in the AL East) entered this season in a full-blown youth movement. Yes, the team still had important veteran players, but the club opened with six rookies on its 25-man-roster. Three of those rookies didn’t make it very long. Miguel Castro, pegged as the closer early in the season, started off hot, but struggled and was quickly optioned. Daniel...

Pompey Needs Guidance On Art Of Playing Defence

Dalton Pompey was just too tentative, too defensive on defence. Too shy on some balls, too soft. As Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told reporters in Cleveland on Saturday, “Defence is a given.’’ Of course, the meaning of that is that ball players have a natural tendency to be pretty solid at the position they play, having been grounded in many aspects from the time they started...

Dalton Pompey: Give Him Some Time

This ten-game Toronto Blue Jays  homestand promised to be a memorable one for local product Dalton Pompey, but it turned out to be one for all the wrong reasons.

Allen Craig hit an improbable inside the park homer

When I think of players that can hit an inside the park homer, I generally think of speedy middle infielders or outfielders. On occasion, maybe a gap hitter will hit an inside the parker thanks to some questionable defense and crazy bounces.
