Notes From Blue Jays Minor League Camp – Part Three

Brendan Kalfus takes a break during batting practice

There’s going to be a lot of firsts for the younger Blue Jays over the next weeks/months.  First trip to Montreal, where I really hope Miguel Castro tried poutine.  A lot of it.  First opportunity to play in Yankee stadium (although not for Dan Norris as Buck Martinez found out during yesterday’s interview): Opening day […]

This doesn’t get old does it?

The Replacements

The Replacements

As a reference to Sly Stallone and his repeated attempts to stay relevant in Hollywood (at least he has a paying career mind, so I can’t really be that negative), this post will hopefully intelligently break down the players who joined the C’s through the season.  In many instances it will be these ‘replacements’ that […]
