Roberto Osuna Finishes Strong in AFL

The Arizona Fall League is officially done, and despite putting together a pretty decent second half, the Mesa Solar Sox (home of our Blue Jay representatives) fell short of competing for the championship.  Doesn’t mean that the season wasn’t a success though, especially as it pertained to the young Mexican right-hander, Roberto Osuna. Osuna’s final […]

Roberto Osuna Throwing 0’s

As you may have noticed by my lack of posts, it’s been all Bobby O for me this Arizona Fall League season.  I do have some other ideas percolating but those are currently on the back burner while Osuna finishes up his AFL stint (which he did yesterday versus the Saguaros) and I try and […]

Third Time Lucky for Roberto Osuna?

Toronto Blue Jays prospect (and my personal off-season pet project) Roberto Osuna made his third appearance Monday (the 20th) in the prospect showcase that is the Arizona Fall League.  And, without too much preamble, let’s just say I jinxed him.  This tweet was sent out after his second inning of work: Seems Roberto Osuna is […]

Roberto Osuna Versus the Scorpions

Get it done Boss Man

Roberto Osuna made his second appearance for the Mesa Solar Sox this past Tuesday.  Facing the infamous Scottsdale Scorpions, Osuna looked to improve on his first outing in the Arizona Fall League, when he got knocked around a bit. Something I talked about here. Looking at the below line and resultant stats, things didn’t seem […]

Roberto Osuna Makes AFL Debut

For some reason I had it in my head that Thursdays Mesa Solar Sox’ Arizona Fall League game was rained out.  So was a bit behind the curve checking out what the Blue Jays farmhands on display had done.  When I did get around to it, it was a bit disappointing.  As I mentioned in my […]

Roberto Osuna – Not a Bad Debut

Get it done Boss Man

I wrote in my last post that I was a bit excited about Vancouver getting Roberto Osuna .  Needless to say, he didn’t disappoint with his first start.  Over 5 innings of work, Osuna faced 19 batters, whiffing 13 of them.  You almost have to read that twice to let it sink in.  Predictably, the performance […]

Back Off the Bench and Talking Vancouver Canadians

Clemens gets set to strike

There are no excuses as to why I have not written on this site in over a year. Well, aside from the two kids, the new job, home renovations…..alright, stop, I’m not here for sympathy, but to write about prospects. And the 2017 version of the Vancouver Canadians, if you’re a buyer of the Blue […]

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 […]

Vancouver Canadians Fall Short in Their Strive for Six

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. […]

Blue Jays Minor League Review: They’re All Gone!

Jairo Labourt's happiest memory as member of Blue Jays org?

Couple of housekeeping notes before launching into this momentous (albeit very late) post.  After the mammoth Troy Tulowitzki trade I was sure I’d started a post giving my expert analysis.  About that:  A) the post is gone, lost to the netherworld (WordPress is literally my arch-nemesis and B) who am I kidding, I’m no expert.
