For Whom Does the Bell Thole?

I think Dickey is really pondering something here

While I’m not sure we’re looking at a situation that is a total certainty as Jon Heyman seems to think, I do believe the Jays are leaning towards picking up starting pitcher R.A. Dickey‘s 12 million dollar — 11 million in real dollars if you take into account the buy-out — option for 2016. Heyman throws […]


Blue Jays Prospects Head to Instructs

Simon Says

While most Blue Jays fans are rightfully focusing on the big clubs remaining games — something about a 22 year playoff hiatus and all — those of us who keep an eye on the minor leaguers also have the off-season leagues to look forward to. This year’s edition of the Salt River Rafters in the […]


Talking Toronto Blue Jays on TSN1040

Ya, he knew

With Monday being an off-day for the Blue Jays I actually kept my alcohol intake to the very minimum while planning an early night to start the week.

Lane Thomas digs in at the Nat

But there is no joy in Vancouver, for the mighty Canadians have struck out. After making the playoffs for the past five years, including three straight Northwest League championships, the Vancouver Canadians, for the first time since they have been affiliated with the Toronto Blue Jays, will be on the outside looking in come playoff time. […]

After taking basically the entire summer off, missing out on the Vancouver Canadians season, our primary talking point on YourVanC’s ‘Weekly’, Greg and I hit the studio last night to slobber over the Blue Jays. Which we did for 18 and change minutes before taking a call from the always excellent Jesse Goldberg-Strassler, the radio […]
