White Sox-Blue Jays Preview

Drew Hutchison's record is almost entirely the work of the Toronto lineup, masking what could be a hefty loss total if it weren't for an MLB-high 9.55 run-support average. The Blue Jays just seem to be relying on that lineup a little too much, and things have more often than not failed to work out as the team labors through a 4-11 stretch. Hutchison and the Jays will try to turn...

The Blue Jays offense is thriving, despite rotation and youth scuffling

The Toronto Blue Jays entered 2015 fully embracing a youth movement. General manager Alex Anthopoulos has a history of sticking with out of option veterans, so it was refreshing to see him stick with the 25 best players for once. The Jays entered the season with a franchise high six rookies on their 25-man roster. These rookies weren’t here to sit and watch, they were going...

The longest home runs for the week ending April 23rd

Talk about a dramatic week at the top of the charts – we’ve got a brand new top three for the season, and a new leader on THE LIST for the season. 1.

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Apr 15

Yesterday was a disappointing day for the Official Lineup. Matt Andriese and the Rays shut down the Blue Jays’ thumpers — Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista combined for 2.00 points and neither Jose Reyes nor Josh Donaldson managed double digits.

Toronto Blue Jays: opening day observations

The Toronto Blue Jays got their season off on the right foot, beating the New York Yankees handily 6-1 earlier today. There were a number of notable occurrences from the game: Drew Hutchison dazzled in his first season opener, with a line of 6.0 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 HR, 2 BB, and 3 SO. Hutchison didn’t necessarily have his best stuff, but he was his usual gritty self. After only...

Urgent News Footage: Edwin Encarnacion Still Baseball T-Rex

At some level, Opening Day represents the birth of a new season and facilitates all the optimism associated with new beginnings. At the same time, however, that new season is also embedded within a perpetual cycle of recurring baseball seasons and their attendant narratives and symbols. Pursuant to that latter point, one finds that while […]

Toronto Blue Jays 2015 Preview: 3 Up and 3 Down

The Toronto Blue Jays emerged as a force to be reckoned with during the first half of the 2014 season. They led the A.L. East as late as July 2, but an injury to Edwin Encarnacion seemed to derail the team and its hope for a playoff berth for the first time in 20 years. Other than Mark Buehrle, the starting rotation and bullpen were nothing to write home about, but they weren’t...
