GM Alex Anthopoulos Shockingly Leaves The Blue Jays, Who Might Be Getting Cheap 

GM Alex Anthopoulos, under whose six-year tenure the Blue Jays emerged as one of the best teams in the AL, will not return to Toronto, reportedly over philosophical disagreements over how he built a winner, and concerns that his power over baseball operations would be severely curtailed under a new team president. »10/29/15 9:29am10/29/15 9:29am


Jeremy Guthrie Was On The Lookout For Beer-Tossing Jays Fans

The umpires needed a replay review to figure out that Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar was hit by a pitch during the second inning of last night’s Royals-Blue Jays game, and Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie immediately thought of what happened the last time the Jays’ home crowd saw their team get screwed by replay: »10/21/15 12:26pm10/21/15 12:26pm

The Blue Jays' Pitching Was So Bad They Had A Position Player Take The Mound

Here is how ugly things were for the Blue Jays tonight: Cliff Pennington, the Jays’ utility infielder, came in to pitch in the ninth. According to Elias he became the first exclusive position player to pitch in the postseason, and it went about as well as expected. In one-third of an inning Pennington gave up two… »10/20/15 8:24pm10/20/15 8:24pm

The Blue Jays Bludgeoned the Royals In Just Two Innings

The Royals traded for Johnny Cueto to be their postseason ace, and in the deciding Game 5 of the ALDS he was exactly that, giving up just two runs across eight innings in the 7-2 victory.

Edinson Volquez Shut The Blue Jays Down By Doing What Made Him Feel Sexy

Edinson Volquez has a history of struggling in the playoffs. Before last night, the Royals pitcher was 0-3 in three postseason starts with the Reds, Pirates, and Royals, with a Jose Lima-esque 8.67 ERA.

Well, That Was The Worst Game Of Elvis Andrus's Life

So much happened in that seventh inning—an inning that took 53 minutes, and even without the glow of morning-after hyperbole, must go down as one of the weirdest, wildest, and most exciting single innings ever played—that its component parts (save The Bat Flip Heard ‘Round The World) may eventually be lost to the box… »10/15/15 9:19am10/15/15 9:19am

Rays Ruin Mark Buehrle's Last Game With First Grand Slam Of The Season

The Rays haven’t had a great season. They’ll finish with a losing record, even after they most likely beat the Blue Jays today. Remarkably, Tampa Bay went the first 161 games never hitting a grand slam, despite 142 plate appearances with the bases loaded. That changed today when Joey Butler went deep off of Mark… »10/04/15 4:22pm10/04/15 4:22pm
