Toronto Blue Jays 2014 Post-Mortem

Anxiousness; that is one word on how I would characterize this Toronto Blue Jays season from the fan’s perspective since at no point, aside from May and early June, were the Jays playing at a level where all cylinders were clicking. Don’t get me wrong, watching the Jays in first place for 45 days was superbly fantastic, but then bit by bit, they wilted down and limped into September...

Drew Hutchison (SP, TOR) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues ANALYSIS: Hutchison has had an up-and-down year, but has really turned it on as of late with the exception of his most recent start  (@BAL, giving up 6 ER but K’ing 11).

Blue Jays plan to extend qualifying offer to Melky, hope to keep him

Melky Cabrera can double his salary if he desires. The Blue Jays have decided to extend him a qualifying offer, which is expected to be in the range of $15 million to $16 million this winter. That would almost precisely double his salary, as Cabrera signed a $16 million, two-year deal with Toronto two winters ago. Word from someone familiar with the Blue Jays' thinking is that...

Marcus Stroman should be suspended for throwing at Caleb Joseph’s head

Last night’s Orioles-Jays game featured some seriously stupid and bush league garbage from Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman. The video below lays it all out, but basically Stroman threw a ball behind the head of Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph. Why? Apparently because Joseph inadvertently — and it couldn’t be anything but inadvertent — stepped on Jose Reyes‘ fingers during...

The Fascinating Free Agency of Melky Cabrera

Melky Cabrera‘s season ended on Friday with a broken finger. Normally, “team headed for 22nd straight year out of the playoffs loses second-best outfielder for the final three weeks” isn’t much of a story, but this situation is a little different. Cabrera is about to be a free agent in what looks to be a terrible […]

WATCH: Melky Cabrera freaks over sound of thunder

During Wednesday night’s Blue Jays-Rays game at Tropicana Field, we saw something we don’t see too often at a domed stadium – a rain delay. Prior to the delay, a clap of thunder scared the bejeezus out of Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera. Yeah, I think I could watch that a time or two. As for the delay itself, it wasn’t technically a rain delay – it was caused by a block...
